TYME ("Take Your Money Everywhere") is an ATM/interbank network in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It was organized in 1975 by First Wisconsin National Bank, Marshall & Ilsley, Marine Bank of Milwaukee and Midland National Bank and was one of the first shared EFT network in the country.[1][2] Residents commonly referred to ATMs as a "TYME machine," which resulted in confusion when Wisconsinites visiting unfamiliar areas would ask the locals where they could find a "time machine".

The TYME network merged with the Pulse network in 2002,[3][4][5] and took the Pulse brand name in 2004.[citation needed] The combined Pulse/TYME network includes about 81,000 ATMs and 457,000 merchant point-of-sale locations. For the purposes of familiarity, some bank locations retained the former slot for the TYME signage and use a replacement slide with "ATM" rendered in the font used by TYME.

The Brown Deer-based company processes the data of more than 4,300 ATMs in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois... Ironically, the cash-dispensing function of TYME was considered secondary when the company was created in 1975 by four banks: Marshall & Ilsley, First Wisconsin (now Firstar), Marine Bank (now Bank One) and Midland National (now U.S. Bank). Its first electronic transaction took place in 1976, marking the starting point of its 25 years in operation... TYME's current push is to expand in Minnesota, where it recently began a marketing campaign. The vast majority of its terminals are in Wisconsin.
