Netherlands-based Fortis Bank has contracted with Diebold for the supply of the vendor's Opteva cash machines.
Fortis is the 25th financial institution in EMEA to sign for the Opteva ATMs, which were launched in March 2003. The vendor says over 1500 units have now been sold to banks including Crédit Agricole, National Bank of Greece, Raiffeisenbank, Standard Bank in South Africa and Alrajhi and National Commercial Bank in Saudi Arabia.
The cash machines operate on Diebold's Agilis software platform - an open system that allows multiple vendors' terminals and technologies to co-exist on an ATM network.
Henrik Funch, divisional vice president of Diebold EMEA, says: "Opteva provides financial institutions with maximum control of their self-service assets, combined with the ability to use their ATM network as an additional customer relationship management (CRM) channel to create other revenue opportunities."
