Windows 10 and your ATMs: start planning now
It seems as though it was yesterday when financial institutions had to upgrade their ATM operating systems from Windows XP to Windows 7. Come January 14, 2020, support for Windows 7 ends and FIs will need to convert to Windows 10. While 2020 may sound far away, financial institutions are encouraged to start planning now. Why? Because running an unsupported operating system is risky business.
What's involved in migrating?
Migrating to Windows 10 may not be a standard upgrade and you will want to begin as soon as possible. As recommended by ATMIA, a successful implementation includes an evaluation of your existing ATM fleet, testing, compliance vetting, systems and software considerations to make sure nothing falls through the cracks. From the planning phase to roll out, it is an estimated 12-15 months.
Once you begin the planning process, you may find that a switch to a new Cummins Allison ATM machine will cost less than upgrading an existing machine. From cash dispense to automated deposit machines, we have a full range of high performance ATMs, complete with a selection of managed and professional services tailor-made at a price you can afford.
