Whilst possibly a somewhat extreme example of a positive consumer experience, this viral payday dance at the ATM shows that going to the cash machine and being able to withdraw cash still delivers a huge sense of satisfaction for consumers – particularly when it has been money that is hard earned over the course of a working week. The ability to withdraw cash gives a tangible sense of what you have worked for.
Despite many reports that say otherwise, the ATM and cash clearly still are important for consumers. Over 3 Million ATMs are estimated to be installed by 2015, with an estimate that this number will increase to 3.7 million by 2018. (Source: Retail Banking Global ATM Market and Forecasts to 2018)
