The service will help in improving ATM downtime up to 35%

Aims at reducing the current operational cost of banks' ATM network up to 25%


Dubai - CNS, one of the leading technology solutions companies in the Middle East, announced the launch of a unique service in collaboration with G4S - the UAE's leading security provider, which will revolutionize banking touch-points within the UAE. The aim of this partnership is to provide end -to -end ATM managed services to banks that will enhance efficiency and customer experience and boost the reliability of the ATMs performance in the region.

This new solution is a fully integrated managed service that offers secure, proactive and preventive ATM management while maintaining one point of accountability. The solution ensures efficient machine performance by constantly monitoring all ATM machines remotely and anticipates any incidents to keep the ATM up and running most of the time. This effectively lowers operating cost, enhances service efficiency, and also substantially reduces the DEAD Cash Inventory.

In the current situation, the industry is facing major challenges including downtime with the ATM machines for various reasons and eventually end up spending a lot of time and energy in identifying the root cause. Thanks to the solution's pre-installed ATM management tool, banks will be able to identify more than 80% of the errors even before they arise and consequently be able to enhance the lead time.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Maurice Ghattas, CEO, Aban Investments, said, "It is a great opportunity and a matter of honour for us to join hands with the leading security provider in the UAE (G4S) to provide a hardware, software and technology solution to the banks in UAE. The reason of this association is to help the banking industry in increasing their profitability and enhancing customer experience."

For Mr. Ihab Al Saheli, General Manager, CNS "Part of Aban investment", "This solution will maintain a single point of contact with 24/7 support for banks. This software solution will ensure fewer ATM errors and minimize faults by 80%; consequently improving the responsiveness of the support team and enabling time-savings of up to 35%.Additionally, it will provide secure end-to-end ATM management with accurate reporting and dashboard. This service will help CNS in reiterating our position in this region as one of the leaders in delivering solutions and managed services to financial institutions."

Mr. David Stockton, CEO, G4S UAE, said, "We are thrilled to be working with CNS on this new solution as it provides a much enhanced experience to critical industry with stakeholders including the UAE Central Bank and financial institutions and of course the consumers. This solution helps optimise internal costs associated for ATM operation in the UAE. Moreover, the service targets significant savings on the current DEAD cash inventory, which will be very beneficial for banks and the entire cash cycle."
