Exercise #4: Role of an End User Answers

  1. I would suggest to remove “the cash withdrawal default setting” at the end of transaction as most of the time, we do not want to set the same cash every time and so we do not like to set it. It unnecessarily wastes time where you have to push NO and will have to wait for the debit card.
  2. I would suggest to include face/finger based authorization rather than password/pin because password/pin can be hacked but face cannot be :)
  3. The ATM machine should have card scanner rather than card insertion facility as sometimes the faulty machines does not work properly and card gets stuck.
  4. The ATM machine should not provide facility for printed statement as it’s a waste of paper. If a person really needs it, he can manage from bank or via online banking. Printed statement is a waste of paper as 95% of user throws it immediately. We need to be more environmental conscious and should see the balance or statement online rather than taking print of every transaction.

All the best.
