KEY BENEFITS OF OUR TOUCHSCREEN TECHNOLOGY
Self-service banking hardware has incredibly high standards in terms of reliability. User expectations regarding touchscreen performance have moved on significantly in recent years; most people own some form of personal touchscreen-enabled device and now demand similar levels of functionality and responsiveness from touchscreen ATM machines that must also operate in the harshest conditions year-round. Choosing to use unsuitable, unreliable, and unresponsive touchscreens in an expensive multifunction ATM can severely damage a financial institution’s brand and reputation in the mind of a customer.
Aside from satisfying the demands of users, touchscreens selected for banking systems may also need to fulfil a variety of other requirements. In addition to baseline criteria such as vandal resistance, reliability and all-weather performance, newer factors such as touchscreen hygiene and secure PIN entry via the screen, have also become important.
Our touchscreens for self-service banking and financial solutions deliver a wide range of benefits to ATM and banking kiosk designers:
- Our MPCT™ and PCT™ projected capacitive touch sensors enable system designers to create self-service terminals that can be used in any environment, functioning faultlessly outdoors in all weather conditions, and capable of detecting touches from gloved hands and conductive styli.
- Additional options and customisation are available, such as integrated privacy, IR and UV blocking filters, and impact-resistant toughened glasses in almost any thickness including Anti-Glare and Anti-Reflective types, capable of withstanding almost any malicious attack.
- Our proprietary touch controller ’chipset’ electronics can be supplied if preferred, and we can also customise the touch detection firmware to your specific requirements. This enables ATM and banking kiosk designers to create reliable, Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant systems incorporating such innovations as touch screens combining secure, encrypted PIN entry (‘Pin on Glass’).
- Antimicrobial glasses and coatings can be specified to inhibit the growth and spread of bacteria and other pathogens between users. Our touch sensors are renowned for their performance even when users are wearing thick gloves, and they can be supplied in edge-to-edge, fully flat designs, eliminating the need for dirt entrapping bezels and frames, making them easy to maintain and disinfect.
