But providing a standardized software base to all ATM machine was the prime objective of all financial institutions and hence XFS provides a common API for accessing and manipulating various devices of an ATM which is acceptable by major financial institutions. With the advent of Windows OS and XFS on ATMs, the software applications have the ability to become more intelligent. This has led to the creation of an altogether new type of ATM application which allows a user to carry out many other important financial transactions besides simply withdrawing cash.

No doubt, this machine proves to be useful and handy saving the valuable time for performing various monetary transactions but at the same time, they can create a lot of trouble if used carelessly.
