THE EFFECT OF ATM TECHNOLOGY IN NIGERIA BANKING INDUSTRY Accounting Pr…
Globalization is a Universal phenomenon. Globalization has brought a lot of changes to financial industries in the global community and there is an increase in profit on economy through Information Technology (IT)
There is no doubt; the introduction of Automated Teller Machine (ATM) has changed the face of electron payment in Nigeria.
“An Automated Teller Machine (ATM) is a computerized telecommunication device that provides the clients of any financial institution an access to any financial in a public space without the need for a cashier of human clerk”
(WIKIPEDIA, THE FREE ENCYLOPEDIA). It is also called machine.
In the last ten years, Banks in developed countries have been investing more and more on Information Technology (IT) as a means to reduce costs and improve operation efficiency. An investigation of the application of Information Technology in Nigeria Banks was carried out in order to determine the expectations and success of Information Technology implementations in the sector.
The data were generated from a survey of randomly selected branches of Skye Banks in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria. Almost all the Banks had an information Nigeria policy, the main thrust of which technology policy, the main thrust of which were to achieve full application goals to secure competitive advantages and to be up to take. Only 565.6% of them actually achieved some measure of successful implementation. The expected benefit of investment in IT were realized in only a relatively few number of Banks.
The consequence was that, less than 40% of the Banks were poised to maximize the benefit of IT through major investment especially in the areas of online access and transactions electronic commercial and electronic publishing. It is estimated that at least 60% of the branches of the, Banks are spending less than $150.000 annually on Information Technology (IT).
In the light of these, Banks in the country are now adopting teller service Technology that is Automated Teller Machine (ATM) because it is cost effective in the long run system in Nigeria.
In the past few years, Nigeria Banks and the financial service industry in particular here embraced the concept of e-money. Changes have begins to take place in the Nigeria financial land scope and customer are increasing .raising the hope of expectations for quality customers service customer is identified by inserting a plastic ATM card with a magnetic stripe on a plastic smart card with a chip that contains a Unique code number and some security information such as an expiration or CVVC. Also, Authentication is provided by the customer entering a Personal Identification Number (PIN).
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Poor’ Automated Teller Machine (ATM) technology is what customers of banks are now facing in Nigeria Banking Industry. Less than two years after banks customers have welcome ATM, the assistance is gradually changing, into another extravagant display of frustration. And the problem of cash/card retreat is no more a mere saying. However, usage of Personal Identification Number Code (PIN Code) by other people is the contra statement of the problem identified for this project work. As these could help to reduce the risk bank/customer might fall into. The research project is thus poised, to examine the possible role of which A TM could play on Nigeria banks especially as a lot of frauds are associated with A TM technology nowadays.

In the course of conducting this research work it is expected that the following will constitute impediments to the effective conduct of the study
Access to Data: inability to access relevant information is a foreseen challenge to the success of this research.
Time Constraint: this study would have choose to cover a larger scope to consider the whole commercial banks in Nigeria.
High cost of running a large area: Also the financial implication of covering the entire nation could be a predicament to the success of this research.
Nevertheless, I believe the above limitations will in no way affect the reliability and validity of the research study.
