Particulars Description

Game-Changing Solutions for Banking Industry 

Banks across the globe are installing ATMs in large numbers to increase their service footprint and meet the rising customer demand for self-service. The increase in the installation of ATMs will lead to a proportional increase in machine outages. Therefore, it is not enough to maintain an ATM installed base by responding to outages as and when they occur because uncontrolled outages prevent end-users from receiving the services they seek. With the decline in the concentration of branches, ATM availability is perhaps the only difference between a happy client and a lost one.  

Quantzig’s predictive maintenance solutions help predict equipment failure and adopt preventive measures to ensure there is no equipment downtime. Experts design our predictive maintenance analytics solutions with a comprehensive understanding of the industry, which equips them with the ability to deliver superior insights and efficiencies. By harnessing our extensive expertise in predictive maintenance analytics, we help our clients to thrive and have a leading edge in the new business era.

Broad Perspective on Customer Analytics in BFSI Sector


ATMs have been instrumental in transforming the role of banks across the world. These days, consumers expect to see an ATM at all public places such as convenience stores, clubs, petrol stations, malls, and even local bars. ATMs are essential because they play a vital role in providing consumers with easy access to cash without traveling miles for purchases that do not operate through digital means. ATMs are also of prime importance for travelers as knowing where the nearest ATM is reassuring and reduces the need to carry too much foreign currency. ATMs benefit businesses by helping to increase footfall and basket spending and ensure customer loyalty.
