Fifth Third Bank (NASDAQ:FITB) has teamed with Phoenix Interactive Design, to become the first bank in the world to deploy Diebold’s single throat mixed-media deposit ATMs.
This is the first implementation of Diebold’s new mixed-media ATM in the world. This new innovation is supported by Phoenix’s vendor independent software solutions and is performing mixed-media deposits for Fifth Third’s customers today. Phoenix first supported the Bank in 2012, when Fifth Third was the first superregional bank in the US to offer ATM mixed-media deposit functionality to its customers.
“Realizing continued innovation in our ATM customer experience helps us to optimize our retail distribution strategy and drive efficiencies,” said Jim Sutton, Director, ATM Network and Physical Distribution, Fifth Third Bank.
“We are pleased to work with Fifth Third Bank to deliver strategically imperative programs such as this. Our industry leading deposit solutions allow Fifth Third to better serve its customer base,” commented Marco Di Cola, vice president, Business Development, Phoenix Interactive. “The Bank’s tenacious focus on delivering the best customer experience is once again echoed in this project.”
Through Phoenix’s VISTAatm™ Intelligent Deposit software solution, Fifth Third’s customers benefit from the mixed-media deposit features available from the Bank’s ATM hardware vendors. Amounts are recognized and summarized on the screen. Customers have the option to view thumbnail images of all checks, zoom in or pan an individual check, and even flip it over to see the back.
