By choosing a Spark ATM for your business, you are ensuring you provide the safest convenience ATM in the market for the following reasons:
|YOUR SECURITY||YOUR CUSTOMERS’ SECURITY|
|1. THE ATM IS LOCATED INSIDE YOUR STORE
Our research shows that most vandalism and attempted robberies at ATMs in South Africa happen at Bank ATMs that are located in public.
|1. CARD SKIMMING
Occurs when a reading device is attached to the ATM’s card reader. The thieves then set up a camera near the key pad terminal to acquire the customer’s PIN. These devices are set up when an ATM is unattended. Card skimming cannot be achieved at an in-store ATM.
|2. THE CASH LEVELS IN YOUR ATM ARE LOW
Almost all ATM-related crimes in South Africa occur on large bank-filled machines.
|2. CARD SWITCHING
Occurs when a thief offers his assistance to ATM customers and then swaps cards with the person. Card switching seldom occurs at an in-store ATM.
|3. YOUR CASH DOESN’T LEAVE YOUR PREMISES
As you are filling your ATM with cash already on your premises, potential thieves do not see large amounts of cash entering and leaving your premises.
|3. FORCED WITHDRAWALS
Occur when a cardholder is forced or intimidated into making a cash withdrawal from his/her account. Forced withdrawals do not occur at an in-store ATM.
|4. THE ATM ITSELF IS VERY SECURE
Spark ATM security is ensured by means of three levels of access control.
|4. HOSTING A SPARK ATM IN YOUR STORE IMPROVES THE IMAGE OF YOUR BUSINESS
Customers will feel far more comfortable making a withdrawal on your premises.
|5. THE CASH CASSETTE IS STORED SECURELY OVERNIGHT
The cash cassette should be removed at night and stored inside your safe. The ATM door is also left open at night – to clearly demonstrate there is no cash inside.
