Australian ATM operator ATM2GO has signed a multi-year agreement to migrate its entire ATM estate to Transaction Network Services (TNS). The deal also includes 4G coverage for both mobile and retail ATM sites.

Under the agreement, the ATM operator will use the TNSLink for ATMs solution to mange communications from the wide range of locations its terminals serve.

TNS claims that its platform will enable ATM2GO to maximise uptime and reliability, while slashing capital and operating costs.

The integrated TNSOnline and TNSVision analytic tools will also offer critical insight into ATM fleet performance in near real-time, according to TNS.

ATM2GO director Jenny Marsh said: “We have chosen TNS because of its proven and reliable hardware, its reputation and the 24/7 support it offers. Many of our mobile terminals are deployed at weekends so as well as the ability to handle high traffic volumes we needed a network that came with round the clock support for peace of mind.”

John Tait, managing director of TNS’ payments division for the Asia Pacific region, said: “A significant proportion of its 270-strong ATM estate covers mobile sites which frequently change. We have extensive experience managing the demanding requirements of this type of ATM, such as the critical need to be able to connect quickly and easily when sited.

“Often deployed at a moment’s notice, we are able to support the communications requirements instantly, including high traffic locations which can see in excess of 1,000 transactions a day.”
