Friday 21 November 2003 23:09 CET | News

Diebold has a new addition to its Opteva family of self- service solutions, the Opteva 750 drive-up, island unit.

Diebold has installed more than half of all bank-owned ATMs within the United States and was instrumental in developing the original drive-up ATM format as a means of consumer convenience in banking. In todays busy society, consumers are initially drawn to drive-up ATMs as a quick and convenient means to conduct their banking transactions. The Opteva 750 maximizes this advantage by facilitating faster transactions through high-speed communications with ATM peripherals, such as the card reader and receipt printer, by employing Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 architecture -- a feature exclusive to Diebolds Opteva family. This is an open architecture, which offers significant advantages to financial institutions by allowing them to more easily and quickly integrate future technologies. Like all Opteva advanced-function ATMs, the Opteva 750 can easily be configured or upgraded with full deposit automation functions, allowing financial institutions to deploy the terminal in a way that best meets their needs. The unit makes drive-up banking more convenient and comfortable for the consumer, while giving branch personnel a chance to focus more on account acquisition and retention-related activities. Consumers will notice the increased lighting on the front of the ATM, together with solid state (LED) task lighting to guide them through a transaction. The Opteva 750 enables a smooth, clear transaction flow, allowing more efficient and shorter transactions to reduce transaction error rates. The Opteva 750 is powered by Agilis(R), Diebolds open-standard, cross- vendor software platform, and is also supported by Diebold Premier Services. Diebolds proven Intelligent Depository Module (IDM) accepts a check deposit without the use of an envelope. The bulk note acceptor can accept a stack of 100 notes offering immediate authentication and, depending on the policies of the financial institution, credits consumer accounts. These features increase the accuracy and speed of transactions and allow financial institutions to migrate deposit transactions to the ATM, offering more convenience to consumers. The Opteva 750 was specifically engineered to resist brute force attacks. It is enclosed in a 13mm steel enclosure that encompasses the entire unit, including the UL 291, Level 1 safe (also 13 mm). Dual-action live bolts secure the advanced-function dispenser and envelope depository within the safe, along with a dead bolt beside the inner safe hinges. The Opteva 750 is the first island, drive-up ATM to offer a two-color graphical receipt printer with high-resolution graphic printing capabilities. The printer offers further convenience and time-saving techniques with the ability to print full-sized statements and loan applications without having to visit a branch. Financial institutions can target marketing strategies to the drive-up consumer through the Opteva 750s enhanced capabilities for marketing, cross- selling and brand-building. The 15.1-inch consumer LCD with touch-screen capability enables a clear image even in bright sunlight conditions.
