NORTH CANTON, Ohio (1/25/08)--Diebold’s Opteva ATM is celebrating its fifth birthday. More than 100,000 Opteva ATMs have been installed globally since its introduction. Opteva was designed after Diebold interviewed financial institutions and consumers in 18 countries in 2001. The company worked with the results of its survey to change its ATM service model. Opteva also was designed with more than 14 security features, including a card reader to prevent skimming, or using unauthorized devices to capture ATM card information for fraud purposes. Diebold, an ATM manufacturer, serves financial institutions, including credit unions, in 90 countries.
