ATM Systems (“ATMS”) was founded in August 1996, a few months after Visa and Mastercard deregulated the ATM networks, allowing surcharging on ATM transactions. Its principals (Gil Lovett, Ken Lovett and Roberto Sanson) continue to operate ATMS with a team of seasoned professionals which has changed very little over the years. From the outset, ATMS’ goal has been to provide a first-class, personalized service to its clients, which has been rewarded with close to zero annual attrition, and a steady growth rate through all economic cycles.
A pioneer in operating and managing “off-premise” (non-bank) ATM locations, ATMS has provided customized solutions to suit the specialized and unique tastes and requirements of the hospitality industry and of each client, specifically. As a result, ATMS now provides its customized solutions to clients in over forty states, and has relationships with multiple major hotel brands. ATMS is a preferred provider for a lengthy list of hotel groups, including: Accor, CNL Hotels & Resorts, Fairmont, Four Seasons, Hilton Hospitality, Host Hotels & Resorts, Interstate Hotels & Resorts, Hyatt, InterContinental Hotels Group, Marriott International, Trump International Hotel, Ritz-Carlton, Sunstone Hotels, and The JBG Companies (hotel division), among others. In addition, ATMS is the exclusive provider for Dow Hotel Company and Omni Hotels (since 1998).
In 2007, leveraging its extensive knowledge in the U.S. hotel industry, and business relationships in Mexico, Guest Entertainment Management Mexico (“Gemm”) was formed to provide superior Wi-Fi networks to hotels with antiquated systems. Gemm now provides Wi-Fi services to more than 10,000 hotel rooms in Mexico to some of the largest hotel groups in the country. Our clients include the Barcelo Hotels & Resorts, the Villa Goup Resorts, Westin, Crown Paradise, Melia and many more.
ATMS became a Ruckus Wireless “Big Dog” Partner in July 2011 in the U.S., and started offering these Wi-Fi services to the hospitality industry, which include brands such as Wyndham, Courtyard Marriott and others. Wi-Fi technology is being revolutionized by companies like Ruckus Wireless, and we are excited to be their partner, and intricately involved in this growth industry.
