WESTCHESTER, Ill. - To improve performance and develop strategies for maintaining quality standards, members of the MasterCard/Cirrus global automated teller machine network have formed a global quality task force.

Other initiatives for 1995 include simplifying cardholders' interaction with ATMs, establishing uniform global operational standards, reducing system failures, and enhancing information provided to members.
