ATM Connectivity Options

When ATMs first became popular in retails stores, they were designed to do processing via a standard analog dial-up operation. This connection uses a phone line. However, most ATMs now come equipped with an RJ45 Jack. This makes the ATM ready for Ethernet connections to an ISP (Internet Service Provider) for processing. And more recently, wireless devices are available that makes the need for a phone line a thing of the past.
  • Processing ATM transactions via our new wireless system gives you remote processing capability for any ATM anywhere. Now you can turn most late model ATM Machines into a Mobile Cash Machine. Install an ATM in an enclosed trailer (ask us to tell you how), bring them to fairs and weekend events. You can set up an ATM Machine where phone service was previously unavailable. Ask us if wireless device services are available in your area for ATM processing. The monthly cost is less than the cost of a monthly phone line.
The Ethernet connection on ATM machines also allows retailers with Internet service to process ATM transactions without adding a phone line or a wireless device. This saves the additional monthly phone line expense. Processing internet transactions usually take under 8 seconds. This is fast compared to processing phone line transactions. A phone line transaction can typically take at least 20 seconds to complete before the machine dispenses cash.  Internet transaction processing is a great option for busy ATM locations.

Converting Leased line ATM Machine Processing to Dial-up or Internet

With a controller that connects an ATM designed for leased-line operation to a processing host computer over a standard dial phone line, you can eliminate the high cost of a dedicated leased line and the capital investment in modems, which dramatically improve unit profitability.
Proprietary technology, initially released in 1995, has undergone substantial refinement and supports ATMs nationwide. Its advanced design includes features that alert the processor, acting as host, when operational malfunctions occur in the ATM, lowering downtime. These are Lease Line ATMs supported for processing at lower costs:
  • NCR
  • Fujitsu
  • Diebold

ATMs must be programmed for Diebold 911 emulation and Burroughs TC500 protocol to take advantage of lower processing fees.

Accounting and Management Reporting

The ATM processing center operates an extensive settlement and accounting system that assures prompt, accurate delivery of funds to the owner of the ATM. The system also includes detailed monthly processing reports. Processing reports show down to the transaction level on a daily basis via the Internet.

Real Time ATM Monitoring
You can log in to a secure area to see your ATM processing in real-time to check transaction, balances, and more. A separate monthly merchant statement is also sent electronically at no additional charge. The statement breaks down all the processing details for the month.
The management reporting and residual accounting for all transaction processing is designed to support multiple-party revenue sharing among merchants and other business partners when needed. This means that if you have one or more ATMs processing transactions and you need to pay more than one person or entity from the processing income, we can do that for you at no additional charge.
