The path in life is seldom a straight one and we are finding this holds true when dealing with the twists and turns of the global pandemic. Several areas around the world are dealing with new lockdowns and on-going uncertainty. It is important to remain strong, resilient and ready as we work to return to normalcy when the pandemic ends.
From the beginning of the pandemic, ATMs have been a vital part of the frontlines of the economy. ATMIA was happy to celebrate the important work ATMs provided during the first waves of the pandemic and emphasize the safety of ATMs and cash.
As you prepare for an ATM & cash revival, as lockdowns are eased, we are here to support you. Important steps you can take now to be prepared include:
- Building a sustainable future – Get involved in future-proofing your organization and OUR industry as we build Next Gen ATMs. And now is the time to ensure your staff are properly trained and educated.
- Connect with others - We are a global family and it is important to stay connected. Our member directory and committees are excellent ways to do so.
- Stay informed - Our advocacy efforts remain focused on our ATM & cash revival advocacy plan. Visit our website, advocacy portal, cash hub or contact the Executive Director for your region to find out more.
- Give thanks - Thank your staff, customers and business partners for sticking together during this challenging time and for their priceless support.
