The Automated Teller Machine (ATM)

The automated teller machine (ATM) or automated banking machine is a computerised telecommunication device that provides clients of financial institutions with access to financial services in a public area without the need of seeing a cashier, human clerk or bank teller. With most ATMs, the customer is identified using a plastic smart card that incorporates a chip containing a unique card number and some security data. Authorisation to use the service is provided by the customer entering personal identification number (pin).

Using an ATM a customer can access their bank accounts in order to;

  1. Make cash withdrawals.
  2. Make credit cash advances.
  3. Check their account balances.
  4. Request an account statement.
  5. Purchase prepaid cell phone credit.
  6. Obtain local currency when abroad.
