So I am totally borrowing from some other financial institutions but I know a good idea when I see one!
We all get caught up in the 500 things we need to do every day and this sometimes causes us to leave our debit cards inside the ATM as we walk away with the cash we need. This causes inconvenience in either the time needed to go to a branch for a replacement or the frustration of not having a card for a week or more.
Why not program the ATM's to hold on to the cash until it detects the debit card has been removed from the dispenser? I can't remember a time where someone has walked away from the ATM but forgot the cash they came in to withdraw.
I know this has been programed on some similar/same model NCR ATM's at other institutions so it would seem to be something that could be easily implemented and save members some time and effort as well as save a bunch of plastic!
Just an idea!
