Lynk Systems, Inc., a leading electronic transaction processor, announced that Western Reserve Group, a pioneer in the ATM industry, has signed on as one of Lynk’s newest ATM distributors. Together, the companies will introduce WRG’s Vision 100 ATM to small and mid size merchants who want a reliable, low cost performer with enough functionality for couponing and on-screen advertising.
Historically, high-end ATMs have not been cost-effective for the smaller merchant with lower volume transaction locations. The Vision 100, however, is a low-cost and well-designed ATM, which uses the Hypercom ICE 6000(TM) platform. With a 6-inch color touch screen, the Vision 100 is suitable for advertising graphics and multicoupon capability. Other notable quality components include the DeLaRue Dispenser, Fujitsu Printer and the Sargent & Greenleaf Electronic Lock. All of these features and components are packaged together in an attractive, user-friendly terminal that generates additional revenue for the merchant.
“We are happy to be associated with Lynk, a company that offers cutting edge technology,” said Jim Penza, president of WRG services. “In addition, Lynk offers a variety of products and services for our ISOs to sell. For example, if a merchant is not able to support a full-service ATM, Lynk offers a point-of-banking (POB) solution via the NYCE network.”
“Lynk also offers a quick set-up time for our customers, multiple direct network connections and numerous tools to help our customers,” said Mike Stevenson, CEO of WRG. “One such tool is ATMAssist, an online reporting package that gives our clients access to the information they need to run a successful business.”
Considered a savvy and quality-driven company, WRG has been pursued by Lynk for quite some time. “We worked on this agreement for several months,” said Melanie Chewning, vice president ATM Division. “WRG is a top-notch, quality organization and we are very excited to have them on board.”
