QUITO, Ecuador and NORTH CANTON, Ohio – Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD), a global leader in driving connected commerce for the banking and retail industries, is expanding its 15-year partnership with Produbanco, one of the largest financial institutions in the region, with the first installation of DN SeriesTM ATMs in Latin America.
The DN Series is a holistic, digitally-connected line of self-service banking solutions built upon a software and services-driven model. Nearly 70 new units will be added to Produbanco’s network, advancing its operational efficiency and making Diebold Nixdorf its sole provider of ATM systems and software.
From a sustainability perspective, the DN Series is designed to reduce Produbanco’s environmental impact and reflects the bank’s commitment to the environment.
To optimize cash handling, Produbanco is utilizing the cash recycling capability, which is an integral part of the DN Series’ design. The ATMs can securely and accurately accept, validate, store and recirculate cash, which increases efficiency and reduces the frequency that cash-in-transit companies are needed to refill machines, thereby minimizing carbon emissions.
The DN Series provides Produbanco with a number of additional benefits.
- This latest technology offers the smallest footprint in the industry, which utilizes less power consumption.
- DN AllConnect ServicesSM enables the bank’s self-service fleet to achieve high reliability for optimal consumer satisfaction.
- Security is maximized through premium anti-skimming options, encrypted communication protocols and rapid response services. Nearly half of the bank’s ATMs will feature Diebold Nixdorf’s ActivEdgeTM card reader, which combats fraud by requiring the card to be inserted long-edge first, making it impossible for all known skimming technology to capture the card’s information.
Jose Ricaurte, vice president, Retail Banking at Produbanco said: “Integrating the DN Series into our branches is a natural step towards the future of banking. Diebold Nixdorf is a trusted and dependable partner that helps lead us further into banking innovation and supports our strategy to grow our self-service footprint. We are thrilled to be the first financial institution in Latin America to provide this advanced solution to our customers.”
Octavio Marquez, Diebold Nixdorf’s senior vice president and managing director of Banking, Americas, said: “Industry demands have required banks to re-think their digital strategy and integrate with the right technology to support it. The DN Series is a combination of software, hardware and services that gives banks like Produbanco a physical channel solution that grows with their digital strategy. We are excited to continue our long-standing relationship with Produbanco by helping them expand their footprint in Latin America.”
The DN Series will be added to Produbanco’s self-service network over the next few months.
