Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD), Brazil's financial self-service market leader for more than a decade, has won the bid to supply more than 3,800 automated teller machines (ATMs) to Caixa Economica Federal (CAIXA).
The deal involves the supply, installation and on-site field maintenance of these ATMs. CAIXA is the second largest state-owned bank in Brazil.
"The Brazil team's extensive expertise in self-service technology and delivery, coupled with the team's solid understanding of the bank's needs enabled us to win this project," said Joao Abud, Jr., president, Diebold Brazil. "This win with CAIXA certainly reaffirms our position as the market leader in the self-service arena in Brazil. We look forward to continuing our work with CAIXA, and remain committed to delivering high-quality products and solutions to our customers in Brazil."
More than 3,500 ATMs are full-function terminals, with an additional 285 terminals that feature a check sheet printing function. Security features incorporated on these ATMs include:
Fingerprint biometrics, which enable consumers to verify their identity via fingerprint at the ATM
Seismic sensors and systems that protect the keyboard, monitor and card reader
Anti-skimming technology that helps fight against ATM card skimming
These ATMs have been purchased to replace outdated machines, equip new branches and expand customer service due to the growth of CAIXA's current account holder base.
In 2011, Diebold Brazil was named the best information technology (IT) company in the "digital industry" segment by Brazil's Exame Magazine in its 38th edition of "The Biggest and the Best." This is the fourth time the company has been recognized as the best IT provider in the country by Exame magazine.
