22 December 2011
NORTH CANTON, Ohio – Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) is delivering the advanced functionality and efficiency of its Opteva® automated teller machines (ATMs) and Agilis® software to Switzerland’s Banca dello Stato del Cantone Ticino (BancaStato). Diebold will install and integrate 12 new ATMs, including Opteva 522 and 562 cash dispensers, and Opteva 720 and 760 advanced-function terminals, into BancaStato’s fleet of 50 ATMs. Among the new ATMs, four will feature Diebold’s deposit automation technology, which delivers outstanding reliability, configuration flexibility and the industry’s fastest transaction time, accepting deposits of up to 30 bank notes in less than 60 seconds.

Based in Bellinzona, Switzerland, BancaStato operates 16 branches in the southernmost Swiss canton of Ticino. It is the largest cantonal bank in southern Switzerland. Looking to enhance its customers’ self-service channel experiences, BancaStato chose Diebold’s deposit automation-enabled Opteva 720 and 760 ATMs to facilitate streamlined envelope-free cash deposits. The ATMs feature enhanced note acceptors (ENAs), which accept up to 50 mixed-denomination notes at one time. Bank customers simply insert a stack of notes and follow step-by-step instructions to complete fast and convenient self-service deposits.

BancaStato’s new Opteva ATMs feature Agilis3, Diebold’s next-generation, global software platform, which enables ATMs to operate at their full potential. Agilis software provides seamless integration of solutions and services in both multi-channel and multi-vendor environments, helping financial institutions improve customer relationships, streamline operations and enhance security.

“With its deployment of Diebold’s Opteva ATMs featuring Agilis software, BancaStato is providing its customers access to highly reliable and secure ATM transactions,” said Dave Wetzel, vice president and managing director, Diebold EMEA region. “Incorporating Diebold’s deposit automation technology into the bank’s fleet enables BancaStato to provide customers with more self-service options and more reasons to stay with the bank and expand their relationships.”

About Banca dello Stato del Cantone Ticino
For more than 90 years to support the economy of Ticino, the State Bank of Canton Ticino was born in 1915 in order to promote the economic development of the Canton Ticino, and to offer the opportunity to invest their savings safely and profitably.
To date, the mission of BancaStato, fixed by law for the establishment, has not changed. In view of the public mandate, the Institute's activities, and particularly the savings of the customers, benefit from the State guarantee. From the Bank historically tied to mortgages, the range of services has steadily expanded. Today the Institute offers, with the help of 492 staff members and the presence of four branches and 14 agencies throughout the canton, all services and products of a universal bank— the granting of loans to private companies and the payment transaction to the management of savings.
BancaStato is a member of the Union of Swiss Cantonal Banks and enjoys strong relationships at the national level. As a result of these collaborations, the Institute is able to provide several products that are particularly interesting and beneficial to its customers, including, for example, a wide range of investment funds and pension solutions named Swisscanto.
