Diebold Inc. announced it will be delivering Opteva ATMs and Agilis 3 software to Turkey's Bank Asya. The full order includes 161 advanced-function ATMs, including 146 Opteva 760 and Opteva 720 ATMs and 15 Opteva 868 cash recycling terminals, Diebold said.
"We chose to partner with Diebold because of their quality solutions and services that enable us to expand and transform upon our self-service offerings," said Fahrettin Soylu , executive vice president, Bank Asya. "The advanced-function and cash recycling ATMs will help decrease our operational costs, and increase consumer satisfaction and ATM availability — all of which are a top priority for us. By deploying the cash recycling ATMs, more cash is readily available to the consumers and enables our bank personnel to focus on addressing consumer needs and selling services."
Diebold's cash recycling deposit-automation modules are intended to provide flexible migration options and make self-service deposits more "teller-like," Diebold said. The result is a higher-quality transaction and consumer experience. The units also optimize cash management by shortening the cash cycle and reducing the costs and risks of handling, storing and transporting cash, the company said.
"We worked closely with Bank Asya to develop a location-based strategy to address their key business priorities," said Dave Wetzel , VP and managing director of Diebold EMEA. "We were able to expand and transform their self-service offerings by deploying advanced-function and cash recycling ATMs to help improve operational costs and efficiencies."
Wetzel said that migrating transactions from the teller line to the self-service channel also makes money management more convenient for the user while also allowing Bank Asya's tellers to focus their time on providing value-added services to consumers.
