Global Banking News - 02 April 2010(c)2005 - Electronic News Publishing - http://www.enpublishing.co.uk
Erste Bank Hungary (EBS.VI), through Diebold, Inc (DBD), would provide advanced utility bill payments through its ATMs.
In Hungary, OCR-based utility bills are paid at post offices or through wire transfers. Diebold, Inc's bulk-deposit Intelligent Deposit Module (IDMbd) technology, would allow ATMs to process OCR images, process them and provide receipts to clients.
Zoltan Sipos, director, card management at Erste Bank Hungary, said, 'We are continuously committed to introduce innovative and convenient services for our customers. This is the reason why we leverage innovation in our delivery channels and Diebold offers the most flexible ATM technology to assist us in renovating our ATM channel.'
The bank would pilot the bill payment service on 12 Diebold Opteva ATMs equipped with IDMbd and Diebold Agilis multi-vendor software application.
