Mobile ATMS Bring Safe, Convenient Cash To Customers

Mobile ATMS Bring Safe, Convenient Cash To Customers

ANZ mobile ATMs located onsite at major events will provide kiwis and overseas visitors with easy access to their cash in a safe, controlled environment.

Provided by ANZ Bank, the innovative mobile ATMs located in a specially fitted container were trialled at Mystery Creek Field Days in July.

ANZ Head of ATMs Mark Prestwood said the mobile ATMs are designed to be easily transported to events around the country such as concerts, rugby games, and natural disasters if and when the need arises.

"ANZ has three operational mobile ATM containers, each with four ATMs, enabling up to 12 ATM machines to be deployed at one event, providing a safe and convenient way for people to access their cash. These ATMs demonstrate our commitment to bringing service to our customers wherever they are and whatever they're doing."

To ensure the safety of ATM customers and their money, leading security provider ADT Armourguard will provide on the ground security for each mobile ATM during its hours of operation.

ADT Armourguard General Manager, Ian Anderson, said the company was pleased to be working with ANZ on such an initiative.

"In providing a security service for the mobile ATMs, our first priority is ensuring the safety of customers. Accessing cash when and where they need it safely is of huge value to New Zealanders, and overseas visitors."

The mobile ATMs are fully self-contained and self-sufficient with integrated power and communications. They are able to operate in the event of a natural disaster such as an earthquake, without relying on any external infrastructure.

"Satellite communications technology also enables us to deploy the ATM containers anywhere in the Asia Pacific region, allowing ANZ to assist communities outside New Zealand in times of need," Mark said.
