Diebold rolls out beefed-up deposit automation

 Permanent link
ORLANDO, Fla. (11/25/08)--ATM manufacturer Diebold announced an automated deposit option with rapid processing designed to expedite bulky note and check deposits at any time to improve security and convenience at ATMs. Rapid processing is executed in one transaction that features the simultaneous operation of two modules at the ATM. One module facilitates single or bulk note deposits and the other enables single or bulk check deposits. Diebold can accept stacks of mixed-denomination currency without an envelope or deposit slip. The module verifies and itemizes the deposit note-by-note, which allows for instant credit. Diebold’s Intelligent Depository Module also accepts a single check or stacks of checks up to 30. The check images are captured and displayed on the ATM screen for verification. “Rapid processing is one more tool to help financial institutions better serve customers through improved availability,” said Charles E. Ducey, Diebold senior vice president of global development and services. “And because both notes and checks can be immediately inserted, it provides another layer of security at the ATM and reduces wait time.”
