Diebold has secured a significant deal with Sparkasse Leipzig, one of the largest savings banks in Germany.
The contract is Diebold's second in Germany in as many months and follows hot on the heels of a major win with Sparkasse Dresden for 200 Opteva ATMs.
This Central Server System migration project is one of Diebold's largest to date, and will involve not only software and hardware updates for the bank's existing fleet of self-service machines but also the installation of 42 Opteva cash dispensers.
Working within the framework of a new Central Self-Service System developed and managed by Sparkasse Leipzig's IT outsourcing partner, Siemens Business Services, Diebold will upgrade 143 ATMs to Agilis, an open, cross-vendor software platform developed by Diebold that allows multiple vendors' terminals and their respective technologies to co-exist. Diebold will also install 42 Opteva ATMs as well as configure 209 Diebold statement printers so that they are compatible with the bank’s new central self-service architecture.
The new Diebold technology, installed across the bank's entire network of 104 branches, will guarantee customers of Sparkasse Leipzig a secure and reliable experience at the ATM.
Commenting on this latest deal, Jörg Engelhardt, recently appointed Managing Director of Diebold Germany GmbH, said, "We are delighted to be working with Sparkasse Leipzig. This is our second major order with one of Germany's leading savings banks in a matter of months. It bears testament to Diebold's comprehensive range of innovative, high-quality hardware, software and services that continue to deliver added value to our customers."
