Etchasoft, Inc., announced today that its revolutionary ATM software, ATMosphere, has exceeded $1 million dollars in cashed checks during the pilot program launched last October. According to an October, 2018 report by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, FDIC, 14.1 million adults remain unbanked with an additional 48.9 million adults are underbanked. These consumers have no or limited access to financial services, and face high costs and inconvenience when simply cashing a check. Etchasoft ATMosphere software puts consumers in charge of their personal finances by enabling ATMs to cash checks.
Call it a “bank in a box.” ATM industry newcomer, Anytime Cash, is just finishing up beta testing of its full financial services unit. Built out from a GenMega kiosk, the new Anytime Cash unit features a host of services, including check cashing; dispensing and loading of pre-paid debit cards; mobile phone “top offs;” gift card exchanges; and, of course, all the standard ATM features. All of this in a space-thrifty unit that measures 65” H by 18” W by 23” D.

Good news is, it doesn’t have to be a negative experience at all. Instead of doing everything all at once and risk overwhelming the members of your team, what organizations need to do is come up with a content strategy, whether it is a light revision of existing content or a total overhaul complete with new written and multimedia content. Once that has been established, it would provide a clearer picture of the website’s direction and allocation of resources.
