Software Delivery Management

 

Software Delivery Management is an advanced ATM software distribution solution that helps banks centrally manage, synchronise and personalise their software updates for ATMs in their network.

 

The TMS data transfer protocol compresses, encrypts and distributes software files ensuring that even networks with a very low bandwidth can successfully download software without any impact on ATM performance or transactions. Software Delivery Management also tracks and monitors all downloads and checks installation processes for successful delivery.

 

Features and Benefits

 

Operational efficiency and cost savings

  • Remote, automated software scheduling and delivery for multiple software versions reduces time and resources to update ATM software
  • The creation and distribution tasks of software files can be automatically separated

 

Optimal customer service

  • Remote software distribution reduces ATM down-time

 

Fast and reliable software distribution

  • TMS transfer protocol tailors software compression, packaging and transfer for each individual ATM network for maximum speed and efficiency
  • Detects failed software installation and retries

 

Software Delivery Management pack includes the following modules

  • Data Encryption Standard (DES) is used to encrypt and decrypt software packages
  • Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) is used to compare the software downloaded from the central server to the ATM to ensure the integrity of the software package

 

Software Delivery Management pack includes the following modules

 

Software Distribution

  • Software packages, such as security updates and new applications, are remotely distributed from the central server to the ATM either in single or batch updates.
  • The operator can do ad-hoc updates, or choose the time they want to deliver the software package to the ATM and if needed, a different time can be selected for installing the package.
  • All software packages are compressed and encrypted before sending to the ATM. This helps to securely optimise delivery.
  • Any failed software delivery is detected, and the software is re-sent in a pre-defined configuration time.

 

Media Management

  • Media files such as promotional screens and videos can be distributed to either the entire ATM network, or targeted ATMs in a particular location, according to the bank's requirements for the campaign.
  • The creation and distribution tasks of media files can be automatically separated.
  • When users create the software package, for example a seasonal campaign, they can specify the expiry date for that package. The ATM will automatically roll-back to the previous version on expiry of the package.
  • Automatic image resolution ensures that media files match the ATM screen.
