Should they disappear or transform ? Focus.
Vending machine Not announced death of the atms
If 29% of the French say they go less often to the DAB in the past 5 years – according to a study by OpinionWay on “the French and The atms,” it remains not less than 61 % go there as often.
And for good reason, the plc is considered as irreplaceable for tickets (92 %), very (very) far ahead of the release of the code of his credit card (3 %) for example… The removal of ATMS would therefore be a strategic error on the part of banks, would lose their income from cash withdrawals, ” according to LesEchos.fr and two, would not respond to a request by the customers away away.

A disappearance not, but a profound transformation of the atms is to be expected. Has the image of the Company General studying currently the possibility to use the new DAB to ” do pedagogy on digital tools in the agency “.
