Maximizing ATM network continuity and resilience

KAL’s Software-on-Standby (SoS) service is a strategic insurance plan for banks that are not yet using KAL technology. It allows banks to run KAL software in SoS mode on a few ATMs, ready for instant rollout if ever needed.

An SoS project involves KAL engineers customizing the Kalignite core software to match your current solution so that you can run it in production on a small number of ATMs. Using KAL’s KTC “remote-reimage” technology, this standby solution can be rolled out instantly on a network-wide basis, if and when the need arises. This offering provides a business-continuity concept that has not been available in the past.

Key benefits

With KAL’s Software-on-Standby (SoS) insurance concept, banks have a strategic contingency plan at a fraction of the cost of a full software rollout. This cost efficiency is thanks to KAL’s special pricing for SoS projects, as the Kalignite software is made available at a zero-license charge while in standby mode.
