QUITO, Ecuador, Sept. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Banco Internacional, one of the top five banks in Ecuador with an average of nearly 2 million transactions per month, has chosen to transform its entire ATM network through the purchase of more than 400 new Diebold 5500 series ATMs, software and maintenance services from Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD). Through this key partnership, and as evidence of its commitment to the Ecuadorian market, Banco Internacional will streamline efficiencies across its self-service channel, reduce operational costs and continue to grow consumer satisfaction with its increase in services.
