Cardtronics and its distributor arm Kahuna ATM Solutions will share industry knowledge with conference attendees, present inexpensive EMV upgrade alternatives for legacy Nautilus Hyosung 1500 terminals, and demonstrate new revenue-generating software, as well as other unique solutions designed to help Independent ATM Deployers (IADs) grow and improve their existing business, at the ATM International Association’s (ATMIA) US Conference Feb. 23-25 in New Orleans.
Cardtronics and Kahuna will combine efforts in booth #302 this year, where they will demonstrate the latest ATMs and software, such as NCR’s Kalpana, which runs on a thin-client Android platform that allows for easy updates and reduces vulnerability to malware attacks. Among other features, it also uses a special touchscreen interface that enables removal of the PIN pad. The Kalpana will be one of five ATMs models available for guests to test-drive while visiting the Cardtronics and Kahuna exhibit.
A number of ATM solutions will also be presented by Kahuna, including its KahunaCentral™ Online ATM Business Management Tool, Distributor Service Network, 48-Month Hardware Financing, and Cash Assist Vault Cash Programs.
Cardtronics will also participate in an educational session on, “Changing Cash Access Dynamics and Your ATM Strategy.” The session will be led by Bill Knoll, EVP and Managing Director, Allpoint Network, and Joel Swanson, VP Electronic Services, AlaskaUSA Federal Credit Union – a Cardtronics and Allpoint client and one of the top 100 credit unions in the U.S.
Knoll and Swanson will discuss why making cash easily accessible to members and account holders is important to financial institutions and independents, how different consumer segments such as Millennials use cash, marketplace trends such as rising foreign fees, and strategies for participating in surcharge-free networks such as Allpoint.
More than 1,100 ATM professionals are expected at the conference. For more information, click here
