Working with Diebold, Saque e Pague,ATMs is delivering a range of financial self-service capabilities never before available to consumers and financial institutions. With deposit automation- and cash recycling-enabled ATMs, the bank is helping Saque e Pague rapidly grow its network, which recently surpassed its millionth transaction, to help reach previously underbanked regions in the country. Deploying cash recycling at the ATM allows Saque e Pague to expand into new markets with limited financial service options. As cash recycling extends ATM uptime, the network provider and its financial institution partners can deploy terminals in remote areas that were previously uneconomical to service, thereby reaching underbanked populations.

The Diebold 429 ATM intelligent-powered ATM is designed to use as little as 70 watts of power, consuming up to 40 percent less energy than other models. Currently available in the Indian market, the Diebold 429 ATM could save enough energy annually to power more than 1,200 Indian households. The Diebold 429 offers a solution for financial institutions to better serve people living in areas with limited power. In India for example, approximately 40 percent of the country’s population is underbanked. Diebold was the industry’s only global ATM provider with the ability to deliver a workable solution that met India’s uninterruptible power supply requirements. Diebold is delivering 2,100 Diebold 429 ATMs for India’s Bank of Baroda (BoB), making it possible for BoB to expand self-service options to locations – and consumers – it could not previously reach. The system automatically chooses which power source to draw from – either the internal battery or alternating current (AC) power grid – ensuring that the unit does not exceed 100 watts of power usage.
