Bank Nowy Tomysl, part of the SGB Group, has deployed Diebold integrated self-service banking solution that includes Opteva hardware, Agilis EmPower software and maintenance services.

Bank Nowy Tomysl has deployed two Opteva 328 banknote deposit and dispensing systems, as well as five Opteva 522 cash dispenser. The rollout was completed in the third quarter of 2009.

According to Diebold, the Opteva 328 machines offer cash dispensing and on-line deposit in bundles of up to 200 banknotes into a single low-footprint system. The Opteva 328 is also fully ready for automated cash recycling of Polish Zloty and Euro banknotes.

To ensure a smooth integration of the Opteva 328 in the bank IT environment, the Diebold Agilis EmPower software features dual server connectivity. The traditional ATMs transactions are driven by the bank’s ATM server while online deposit transactions are processed thru the Softnet branch application of the bank. Therefore, Agilis Empower enables the addition of an advanced set of transactions with no requirement of an expensive upgrade to the ATM driver.

Miroslaw Bak, president of the board at Bank Nowy Tomysl, said: “We awarded a consortium of Polish companies including Diebold with the contract to deliver a comprehensive solution to fit our new branch vision. Particularly, we believe Diebold Poland offers innovative self-service solution and strong maintenance services. Diebold services quality also ensures that our self-service systems are available to our bank customers around the clock.”
