Southern Michigan Bank & Trust Installs New PTM

Southern Michigan Bank & Trust was recognized by Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance (MAEDA) for the installation of a new PTM in downtown with a We Noticed ribbon cutting on November 13.

Southern recently installed a Personal Teller Machine (PTM) on the outside of Herman’s Hardware that can be utilized by downtown pedestrian traffic in downtown Marshall. The standard banking functions utilized at a typical ATM can still be obtained at a PTM 24/7, such as deposits and withdrawals. Transactions are free for Southern customers and only $3 for non-customers.

In addition, Southern’s customers may also take advantage of talking with a live personal teller Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until noon. The live teller can assist with most of the banking transactions that in the past, could only be accessed inside the bank. Withdrawals can be obtained down to the penny and specific denominations can be requested, businesses can make large end of the day deposits, and customers can discuss their personal accounts.  In addition, the PTM has a scanner to check photo IDs and security cameras to keep customers and their information safe.

“We are excited to partner with Herman’s Hardware and to offer this service to make shopping and dining downtown more convenient,” stated Doug Kiessling, Regional Vice President/Commercial Loan Manager. Paul Herman, owner of Herman’s Hardware, added “we are lucky to have a downtown that is vibrant and diverse, and this service will attract more customers.”

Visit the Southern Michigan Bank & Trust PTM outside of Herman’s Hardware, 139 W. Michigan Ave. Southern also has another conveniently located PTM outside of their full service Marshall branch located at 1110 W. Michigan Ave., next to Biggby Coffee.
