BNL-BNPP EXTENDS PARTNERSHIP WITH DIEBOLD TO INCLUDE DEPOSIT AUTOMATION

Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) has announced at their annual European customer conference ‘Acceleration’, a deal with Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) – part of the Banque Nationale de Paris and Paribas (BNPP) Group – to supply 143 automated teller machines (ATMs) with deposit automation capability at the bank’s branches throughout Italy. The new ATMs, which are able to accept bulk cheque and cash deposits, will help BNL improve branch efficiency and provide new services for its customers.

Diebold is supplying BNL with Opteva® 720 and 760 ATMs that will be deployed by the bank during the second quarter of 2008. The fully automated Opteva terminals represent the next generation of ATMs for the financial sector. The benefit for the customer is that they are able to carry out transactions without entering the branch; at the same time, banks benefit from being able to focus on higher value services, given that less time will now be spent on simple deposit transactions.

At Diebold’s Acceleration customer event in Paris, Danilo Rivalta, Diebold vice president and general manager, South Europe, said, “Deposit automation is key to the branch transformation we are seeing in the retail banking industry, and Diebold is well-positioned to play a valuable role in this process.”
This latest announcement represents the next phase of a long-term strategic relationship between Diebold and BNL. Previously, Diebold worked with the bank to introduce the Agilis Power®’ software package, enabling the bank to centrally manage approximately 1,000 Web-based ATMs from three different providers.

"This latest success is a very important one for Diebold,” Rivalta said. “BNL’s decision to choose our deposit automation ATMs acts as a testament to the quality of both the products and services we provide”.
