Remote ATM Testing: Best Practices

Remote ATM Testing Best Practices

While remote and hybrid work is still hugely popular, the end of the COVID-19 emergency has caused a shift back towards office work again in recent months. In fact, the 2023 State of IT report from SWZD found that 85 percent of organizations have asked employees to return to physical offices (44.4 percent all workers and 40.1 percent some workers).

Yet this swing back toward the office doesn’t mean the benefits of a remote workforce are no longer valid. In fact, supporting remote access is still incredibly important to business agility, flexibility and overall success.

According to Owl Lab’s State of Remote Work 2022, 62 percent of surveyed workers said they feel more productive when working remotely, while just 11 percent feel less productive. Remote work remains a great way to improve productivity and achieve business goals. 

Despite the benefits of supporting remote access, many organizations still aren’t ready to provide the right combination of access, alignment and automation to ensure that their remote teams are successful. 

This is particularly true for many ATM fleet owners, who still rely too heavily on manual testing, as well as outdated testing tools and technologies. In a world where remote workers and cloud-based technologies offer significant opportunities to increase productivity and reduce costs, this legacy approach to testing is both inefficient and expensive.  

In this blog, we’ll take a look at a few key reasons why supporting a remote workforce still makes sense and can still help maximize the efficiency and profitability of your ATM channel operations.

Why Remote Work Still Makes Sense

Remote testing can provide significant business benefits. In fact, a two-year study by Stanford University revealed that remote workers demonstrated a 13 percent increase in productivity compared to their in-office counterparts.

The study also found that remote employees reported higher job satisfaction, with 50 percent less attrition. This can be attributed to factors such as reduced commuting time, flexible work hours, and the ability to work in a comfortable environment.

Remote work provides business benefits such as:

  • Cost savings
  • Increased productivity and job satisfaction
  • Higher employee retention rates
  • Improved talent acquisition
  • Lower operating costs
  • Environmental sustainability 

Why This is Important for Your ATM Testing Processes

When you apply remote work to your ATM testing processes, not only do you realize the above business benefits, but you will also:

  • Attract and retain the best testing resources
  • Facilitate better cooperation and collaboration
  • Increase productivity and shorten project delivery cycles
  • Expand test coverage
  • Improve test quality and accuracy 

Even though it is once again safe to work from a corporate office, there are still many benefits to be gained by supporting remote and hybrid workforce options.
