In 1989, the first twenty years ago, they first wondered about the pension machine. Today, ATMs are completely new and their popularity is not declining. Add more and more interesting functions.
The first ATM on the Czech lands began to serve on January 15, 1989 at the branch of the then esk sttn spoitelny in Vclavské nmst (Mstek). Spotku was intended only for employees of the savings bank, gradually ATM cards were offered to the Irish spectrum of users.
At that time, the card’s own standard was used for the pension, where the word Sporoir was used here directly on the card. The machine was not connected to the bank. Online ATMs were common in Czechoslovakia and in 1992, for example. in the cracked Hilton (then Atrium).
While twenty years ago, clients were served by three cash machines, now the people in the Czech Republic have at their disposal at 3,500 ATMs. Compared to abroad, we seem to have something to do: Spain has an ATM of 60 thousand, Britain, France and Germany after fifty thousand. Belgium, on the other hand, has only about seven thousand ATMs.
It can be expected that the trend of rising sweat ATMs will grow along with the opportunities that ATMs will offer. Charging the credit of SIM cards or making a balance here is a classic. The news is to change your PIN or deposit cash in an ATM. But there is also talk of other changes and possibilities.
History of ATMs in the world
The first mechanical ATM for gangsters
With the idea of collecting cash without interacting with a bank employee, the Turkish inventor, Luther George Simjian, played in America at the age of ten. He threw himself fully into the idea – he registered a total of twenty patents related to this concept – and he managed to persuade Citicorp Bank (current name) to try out the 1939 project.
After half a year of operation, the company announced that the experiment for the lack of interest of the client, and therefore low utilization, ru. “It seems that the only people who used slot machines were a few prostitutes and gamblers who didn’t want to act on TV with TV players,” Simjan wrote down.
ATMs continued to reach their second and final premiere until 1967, when the first electronic ATM was installed by Barclas Bank in London. John Shepherd-Barron is named the inventor, and all the people in their development succeeded. For example, they used a PIN that was protected from an ATM.
The first ATM was similar to the day in that the cards (vouchers) to be collected were one-off. So the amount was solid – the ATM issued one of the ready-made suits with ten pounds after inserting one voucher.
The online electronic ATM was launched in 1968 by Donald Wetzel in Dallas, Texas. The ATMs and their distribution were greatly assisted by IBM, which in 1973 distributed IBM 2984 ATMs and other types throughout the UK.
The future of ATMs
The popularity of payment cards in our rise. Czech Republic, however, uses ATMs that differ from countries with traditional payment card traditions, where payments from merchants prevail over ATM withdrawals. The difference is, however, because the growth in the volume of payments for goods and services at merchants will increase in the domestic pace at a stronger pace than the volume of ATM operations.
On the other hand, the Czech Republic is due to a slow pace in the development of cards and ATMs compared to mature contingencies.
“Compared to western countries with a significant part of tradition, this is a substantially new, modern facility. For this reason, ATMs in R can provide the same or even better services, ”pointed out Milan Ztka from Sdruen for bank cards.
From the statistics, the number and volume of selection seems to be steadily increasing, as well as the average number that the people will suddenly choose.
And if you choose a pension at an ATM or pay by card at a businesswoman, the bank will pay in any case. In its form, therefore, it is probable that both types of transactions will work.
How are the ideas on put an ATM?
biometrics – instead of the thirty PIN, we could pinch a finger, palm or cornea for the flight (the use of the eye for biometric identification will probably not be accepted at ATMs, a very likely finger is). Experiments with the recognition of surface features are also being experimented with.
connected to the Internet – to be limited to vbr penz. An ATM connected to the Internet can also be used to book a ticket to the cinema, to buy in an online store.
connected to a mobile phone – This could theoretically be connected to a mobile phone. You choose and order on the mobile screen. After identification, the ATM will then print what you ordered, you will change the ticket to the cinema. However, in my opinion, there is no reason why the entire payment would not take place online, without the use of an ATM, and the oven in the cinema would then take place on the basis of a checkpoint or immediately.
proplcen ek – Czechs have never taken office, but they would certainly appreciate this position abroad. However, there are many technological gaps, people simply do not use OCR-friendly and zero more could drink dearly to the bank.
emergency PIN – for now, only the theoretical function would allow you to call the police in case you are e.g. forced to commit involuntary withdrawal at an ATM. It would be enough to enter the emergency PIN.
contribution to charity – ATM to ensure verification and authorized access to it. No problem, you can directly write to one of the selected charities. (more about new ways to contribute to charity)
