Diebold to put banking automation under spotlight at Middle East ATMS Expo
Two-day event to focus on ATM interchange, optimizing customer experience and vital facets in the Middle East banking sector
The two-day conference and expo, the only dedicated automated teller machine (ATM) conference in this fast-growing region, brings together 200 banks, independent deployers, network processors, vendors and service providers. The event will feature the latest ATM technology solutions and services, and encompass a speaker based program on case studies addressing a full-range of ATM hardware, software and service-related topics.
Diebold, a global leader in providing integrated self-service delivery and security systems and services, will showcase its comprehensive security solutions portfolio as well as the Opteva® Flex PerformanceSM Series, Diebold's most robust self-service terminals which bring 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.
“Banks are implementing new technologies and facilitating deposit automation to increase branch productivity. This enables improved banking service at location-based channels, and creates ways to integrate different points of contact for consumers,” said Xavier Bianne, vice president and general manager, Diebold Western Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA). “As a global leader in ATM services and systems, Diebold has integrated leading-edge security features directly into the design of our family of ATMs and engineered what just might be the most sophisticated, most advanced ATM solutions in the business. Our solutions are changing the way the world accesses cash and the way financial institutions interact with consumers.”
Aleksandra Lubavs, senior director marketing, strategy and innovation for Diebold EMEA, will speak during the first day of the conference about Diebold’s deposit automation technology and how it helps financial institutions address their key business priorities and continue to transform their branches.
“Deposit automation and branch automation are going to be very important, amidst this amazing growth phase in the regional banking sector,” said Habib Abinader, general manager, Middle East, Diebold. “Increasingly, banks in the region will be looking at the new generations of machines that offer a range of services that go way beyond cash dispensing and into the self-service or assisted banking areas that are set to transform branch banking. Deposit automation is one of Diebold’s strengths and we are very excited by the opportunities ahead, both for the industry and for Diebold.”
