TEKchand Introduces ATMContentPro, a Pioneering Content Management Appliance for ATMs and Self-Service Kiosks

TEKchand introduces an innovative plug and play appliance model for smaller financial insitutions and kiosk owners to manage marketing content, reduce cost and ease integration on multi-vendor hardware platforms.

Chicago, IL, December 02, 2008 --(PR.com)-- TEKchand, LLC (http://www.tekchand.com), a supplier of server side, web based software applications for ATM channel management, today has announced the launch of ATMContentPro, a cost-effective appliance for remote management of screen and receipt marketing on multi-vendor ATMs and Kiosks. ATMContentPro is the first in a series of appliance-based products from TEKchand, specifically designed for ATM deployers with less than 50 terminals who are looking for an affordable, easy to use content distribution and management solution without the headache of a resource intensive integration.

ATMContentPro’s appliance-based approach allows customers to be up and running within days instead of weeks because compatibility issues are eliminated and certification testing is significantly reduced. In addition, the appliance model means that support for the entire solution, hardware,
software, and application, is consolidated within a single company for
simplified maintenance.

“We’ve taken the pain out of a complex integration process by delivering a secure server appliance preconfigured with our core application and accepted ATM industry security standards. This makes our appliance model easy to purchase, implement, use and most of all, afford, for organizations with even the smallest ATM deployment base,” announced Rajeev Bahri, Managing Director of TEKchand, LLC, “as a company that’s spent 9 years focusing solely on ways to simplify content management on multi-vendor ATMs, our solutions have passed the test of the most demanding clients and largest transaction processors in the industry.”

ATMContentPro is a pre-configured appliance delivering TEKchand’s flagship application, ATMContent Manager, which allows users to easily design, schedule, modify, implement and dynamically control screen graphics, receipt, and marketing messaging on ATMs, regardless of manufacturer or operating software. The appliance consists of hardware, operating software, application software, firewalls and database functionality, all pre-loaded and locked down to create a secure architecture that’s ready to implement on a clients network. Bahri adds, “Since our core benefit of an agnostic solution that can manage multi-vendor ATM hardwareremains intact with ATMContentPro, clients can choose what they feel is the best hardware or terminal software, both now and in the future, and still have a common marketing and management solution for this important customer touch point.”

TEKchand has been able to reduce the cost of delivery for ATMContentPro by using Open Standards to deliver ATM channel management capabilities that many smaller organizations want, but thought too expensive. “This is the first introduction of TEKchand’s new appliance-based approach, which will expand in 2009 to include our entire product suite, especially PCI compliant cardholder preferences” says Bahri.
