Best Products deploys new ATMs for NYU FCU

Re-post from http://www.bpsands.com/nyu-atms/ Best Products Sales and Service referencing our service and product-  Great read.

This new fall semester brings many changes to New York University and New York University Federal Credit Union. New students, a few newly renovated buildings, and of course – new ATMs. NYU is no stranger to ATMs. The University has had several dozen for years. However, NYU was not receiving the level of service that they expected. From equipment malfunctions and constantly running out of cash, to complaints of high surcharges they decided it was time for a change.  They turned to Best, and we were quick to come up with a win – win solution for the University and the Credit Union.

Best Products provides ATM transaction processing services and BIN blocks NYU FCU cards to provide surcharge free access for members. Not a member? Not a problem! The ATMs charge a low $1.00 surcharge. Yes you read that correctly; only one dollar! And you thought there were no bargains left in NYC. What a deal!

“We started using Best Products with our branch ATMs a year ago. Their service is excellent. It was an easy decision to make to use them for our off premise machines. I would recommend them to anyone.”
Mira Ness, CEO – New York University FCU

ATM Branding = Cost Effective Targeted Marketing Tool

NYU FCU Branding consists of custom wraps by GetBranded.com and custom on screen advertising designed by Best Products. While there are thousands of different ways to market potential financial services, ATM wraps and screen advertising precisely targets the consumer when and where they need financial services. By branding, the ATM now shouts Financial Institution credibility, promotes brand awareness, and exposes existing and potential members to the NYU Credit Union brand each day.

NYU ATM’s are spread throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. Specific locations include dorms, cafeterias, and the lobby’s of lecture halls. Want to check these great looking ATMs out for yourself? Unless you’re a student or a NYU employee, you probably won’t run into them. Most of these locations have 24/7 security and require a student or employee ID to access them. However, check out some of the pictures below to see a handful of installations.

Wrap Marketing – What you should know!

 

Wrap Marketing describes the marketing practice of covering or wrapping an ATM, Kiosk, Vending Machine or any other Self-Serve Device for marketing and advertising.  The result is a process that is essentially a billboard.  Wrap Advertising or Marketing historically was achieved by painting your device or using vinyl decals to cover you device using varying marketing designs.  This process historically has been complicated and underutilized because of expense and other challenges.

Our tough and durable SharkSkin™ material coupled with our template based designs, specific to your make and model device, makes branding your device easy and cost effective.

Here is a client that understands how to use their ATMs as billboards.  Each time their marketing message changes they change their wraps just like the do with their billboard campaign.   This is the same ATM shown at different times with different wraps representing current marketing campaigns.

Vector Files Explained

We get asked frequently what is a vector file and why do you need it to create my design?

Vector File 2

Many designs we create at GetBranded.com are for print in larger applications like a SharkSkin wrap for ATMs, Kiosk, signs or displays.  To keep the quality of the print in tact no matter the size of the print the vector file is needed.

Vector files such as AI and EPS can remain editable so you can open them back up in Illustrator and edit any text or other elements within the graphic. With images that contain text that are saved as a JPG, PNG or GIF, you would not be able to reopen and edit the text.

In addition vector files are scalable to any size without loss of resolution. Most EPS and AI files are vector files.

Here is a good in depth explanation from www.techtimes.com-

Unlike JPEGs, GIFs, and BMP images, vector graphics are not made up of a grid of pixels. Instead, vector graphics are comprised of paths, which are defined by a start and end point, along with other points, curves, and angles along the way. A path can be a line, a square, a triangle, or a curvy shape. These paths can be used to create simple drawings or complex diagrams. Paths are even used to define the characters of specific typefaces.

Because vector-based images are not made up of a specific number of dots, they can be scaled to a 220px-VectorBitmapExample.svglarger size and not lose any image quality. If you blow up a raster graphic, it will look blocky, or “pixelated.” When you blow up a vector graphic, the edges of each object within the graphic stay smooth and clean. This makes vector graphics ideal for logos, which can be small enough to appear on a business card, but can also be scaled to fill a billboard. Common types of vector graphics include Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, and EPS files. Many Flash animations also use vector graphics, since they scale better and typically take up less space than bitmap images.

It’s always a good idea to have your logo in vector format.  Graphic artists can easily convert a vector to any other format. If you have a file that is not vector and you need it converted to vector format we can help.

Hope this explanation helps!

What Can We Learn from Coca-Cola and Pepsi When it Comes to ATM Deployments?

Understanding Product Branding

Coca-Cola®, Pepsi® and aLayout 1
myriad of other products
understand the power of
branding and eye-catching
graphics; especially in visually
competitive environments like
convenience stores.

Walk into any convenience
store and notice all the colors
and designs associated with
drink coolers and product
displays.

They understand a very
simple principle of marketing
— get seen or get lost.

Lost in a Sea of Color & Design

Branding is a concept ATMLayout 1
deployers are just beginning
to understand.

The typical ATM deployment
usually consists of the ATM
straight out of the box, with
maybe a 4” x 4” decal for sales
and service, compliance and
network logos.

The ATM is dull, usually gray
and blends in nicely like a
chameleon on a leaf.
Simply stated, it disappears in
a sea of color and design.

Stand Out and Get Seen

Stand out in visually competitive environment with our custom graphic, full color, precise contoured ATM panels with Shark-Skin Technology . High strength, aggressive, permanent pressure sensitive adhesive, will stick to "hard to stick" surfaces.

With attention grabbing wraps your
ATM will stand out and get seen.

An effective graphics package
will address the element of
credibility — like clearly stating
who to contact with any questions
about a transaction, the sponsor
bank, networks like VISA and
MasterCard, and other national
and regional networks.

One thing is for certain; from a
credibility perspective, the ATM
is the most image sensitive
device in a retail environment. If
consumers trust it, they will use it.

Professionally designed wraps
that address credibility will
increase transactions.

 

Unlimited Branding Possibilities

ATM branding possibilities,
styles and themes are virtually
unlimited.

But typically ATM wraps fall
into one of three categories.

1. Retail-focused
2. ISO-focused
3. Financial institution-focused

All are a good way to increase
visibility and credibility.

However data indicates using
a bank or credit union branding
partner results in the biggest
surge in transaction volume.

ATM Branding: A Proven Winner

Attention grabbing graphics will
make your ATM stand out in the
jungle of color.

and increase your profit
with custom graphics.

Cool Kiosk design for LAFCU

After completing a SharkSkin wrap project for LAFCU’s  NCR 32 ATMs and NCR 38 ATMs, LAFCU ask us to design a template for their lobby kiosk.  We took the exact same design and created a template for their IPAD lobby kiosk.

The Kiosk SharkSkin wrap looks great and it was just as easy as the ATM wraps to install.  Thanks GetBranded for making the entire process easy.

ATM Branding Helps Summit Credit Union Increase Visibility

The Challenge
Summit Credit Union, which serves 165 various businesses in
North Carolina, needed a way to promote its products and services
to its membership base. It wanted to raise its profile and educate its
members through an inexpensive but effective solution.

The Solution
Because credit unions typically have fewer branches than banks,
they often forge agreements with third-party ATM deployers for
members to use off-site machines surcharge-free. Summit is no
different.

Sumitt Credit Union Wrap, SharkSkin Wrap, Get Branded, Credit Union branding, Bank Branding
Summit Credit Union Branding on Hyosung 2700 ATM with SharkSkin Wraps from GetBranded.com

ATMs are a vital means for our members to access to their accounts
regardless of where they live, Glenn Kirk, vice president of marketing
and business development for Summit Credit Union said. Summit only
has six branches in the communities they serve – Raleigh, Hickory,
Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

Working with GetBranded.com, an online branding company that
specializes in ATM branding solutions,Summit ordered customized
wraps for their seven off-premise ATMs. Six of the wrapped ATMs are
inside the premises of business partners, while the seventh is a freestanding
unit in the entryway at one of its branches.

Until recently, ATMs and their spacious panels had been overlooked
as prime marketing real estate. Industry experts, such as Kirk, see
the machines as a low-cost way for credit unions to publicize their
operation and compete with larger financial institutions.

ATMs are not just a place to get money anymore…
it’s criminal to not take advantage of that space and
turn the bare steel boxes into vital billboards.

The ATM wraps feature more than merely a logo and a name.
Using dominant color photographs, which feature actual members
and large captions, they tout the positive benefits members have
experienced.
The wraps were designed to fit the specific dimensions of each
unit. Each panel covering was peeled from a large sheet and
adhered to their respective spots on the ATMs in a matter of
minutes, instantly enhancing the machine’s appearance and
branding with Summit’s customized marketing message.

The Results
It’s tough to tell exactly how much the wraps have helped publicize
Summit Credit Union’s products and services as they are just one
part of an overall marketing campaign. But Kirk said he knows
they’ve made a difference since Summit focused on branding their
ATMs two and a half years ago.

During that time, Summit’s assets have risen by about $5 million
and membership increased by roughly 2,000. Kirk says members
of the community seem to be more familiar with the credit union’s
offerings.

Cost-Effective Marketing Tool
The credit union also relies on lobby displays and promotions, direct
mailings to members, newsletters and other inserts, messages on
statements, outdoor signs and occasional newspaper ads to get
the word out.

As compared to other marketing, ATM wraps are very cost effective.
Billboards for example can cost thousands of dollars
for an ad that might only appear for a few weeks. An ATM wrap,
on the other hand, are significantly less expensive.There is
a one-time fee and the wrap is designed to last upward of five
years. They are also custom-designed for the financial institution.

Assuming a wrap might cost $400 but lasts three years, if an
ATM has 1,000 users a month, the cost of the wrap would equate
to roughly one cent per user over that period, Kirk said.

While billboards might reach countless motorists, Summit believed
it wouldn’t reach the ideal audience with billboards, Kirk said.
Interstate travelers who see billboards, more times than not,
are transients with no connection to the local community.

“People who live in the community are going
to see the ATMs,” said Latshaw. “They’ll see
them over and over and over.”

Because ATM wraps are durable and designed
to last for five years or more, the only time
Summit’s wraps might change its wrap is if
they decide to alter the message or simply
wants to refresh the look, Latshaw said.

Customized to Spotlight Real Members
Because GetBranded.com ATM wraps are
customized for the client, Summit was able
to use photos of real members from the
community that potential new credit union
members can relate to.

By spotlighting members hailing the credit union’s services, such
as car loans and equity lines of credit to consolidate loans at lower
interest rates, Summit was able to quickly illustrate its value to
those who were new to the credit union membership rolls.

“It’s all about awareness,” Kirk said. “When you’re trying to change
somebody’s perception, you do it by chipping away,” he said.
