NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- With the introduction of its Opteva® Flex PerformanceSM Series, Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) redefines what financial institutions should expect from an automated teller machine (ATM). Diebold's most robust self-service terminals to date, the Flex Performance Series brings together all of today's advanced self-service functionalities - from accepting cash and check deposits and dispensing cash to full recycling - all in one ATM model. Delivering flexible self-service transaction configuration options, as well as optimum performance and reliability, the new series of ATMs enable streamlined cash management, greater operational efficiencies and a decreased total cost of ownership.
Adaptable to the changing needs of consumers and financial institutions, Diebold's Flex Performance Series includes the Opteva 828 lobby ATM and the 868 through-the-wall ATM. The centerpiece of the cash management capabilities is the flexibility to configure the terminal with a recycling module and separate cash dispenser. This combination increases terminal uptime, extends the cash replenishment service cycle and provides a clear upgrade path from basic cash-in and cash-out operation to full recycling. With a cash capacity that is three to four times higher than standard deposit automation ATMs, the Opteva 828 and 868 decrease deposit pulls. This means that the personnel requirements associated with managing and replenishing these ATMs is dramatically reduced. Consequently, courier and service costs are reduced, tellers can perform higher-value services and branches can operate more efficiently.
"By helping to migrate transactions to the self-service channel, the Flex Performance Series will help financial institutions evolve their branches into a selling environment," said John M. Deignan, vice president and chief marketing officer, Diebold. "The continuous availability and flexibility of these terminals enable financial institutions to transform the way they manage cash at the ATM, improving efficiencies, decreasing costs and minimizing the administrative burden for their personnel."
In addition to the increased note storage capacity, the Opteva 828 and 868 provide secure and efficient note-handling, including validation of both in and outgoing notes, counterfeit note detection and note-fitness checking, cash sorting and denominating. The recycling-ready deposit automation module can be configured in deposit-only, cash-in and cash-out or full-recycling modes, offering flexible migration options to respond to the financial institution's current and future technology needs for location-based optimization. The cash dispensing capacity and note denomination support can be extended with an optional four-cassette cash dispenser.
To provide an enhanced user experience, the Flex Performance Series ATMs offer an exclusive, configurable consumer cash interface. This feature enables the terminal to satisfy differing consumer preferences around the world, delivering a high-quality user experience every time. The Opteva 828 and 868 ATMs are available to financial institutions globally. The Flex Performance Series meets the needs of a broad range of deposit environments while providing unsurpassed transaction processing speed and industry-leading uptime.
