An even stronger partnership between KEBA and CrediFriuli
KEBA first presented its evo series to the general public in Italy in September 2017. The Ferrari Museum in Maranello, a small town near Bologna, was chosen as the venue for this presentation. CrediFriuli, which with its 34 branch locations stands out in the region for its grassroots coverage and accessibility to customers, was very impressed with the new line’s compact size, design and flexibility. This strong first impression has given way to a broader partnership, building further on the trust already placed in the previous line of KePlus X6se units.
Enthusiastic response to the evo series
Payment by check is very common in Italy, and the new generation of evo products includes a check-scanning module as part of the basic system, despite its extremely compact size, measuring just 60 cm wide. The machine’s compact size saves space and makes it easy to install and integrate into a branch layout, another strong point of the system in the eyes of CrediFriuli, alongside its design and development approach focused on a user-friendly control scheme. Mr. Mauro Zanutti, Bank Organization Service Manager, also discussed a few other reasons for choosing evo: “We opted for evo because its video system allows us to offer a wide range of flexible services. It also offers the possibility to connect with our call center, which gives us numerous options on how we design our branch locations. Furthermore evo has a very modern design and is a perfect fit for our new branches.”
CrediFriuli is currently using six KePlus F10 cash-recycling ATMs supplied by KEBA. Gerhard Luftensteiner, KEBA’s CEO, is enthusiastic about the strong partnership in Italy: “I attended the evo launch event in September and was very pleased to see CrediFriuli place its full trust in our new line of ATMs. With evo the bank is even better placed to meet the needs of the Italian market. Check deposit and verified deposit and withdrawal are now standard features, embedded in a very modern and compact design. I am very happy to hear about the positive feedback from Italy.”
KEBA can celebrate twice
In addition to installing its 500th evo cash-recycling ATM in Italy, KEBA has also ordered its 1,000th cash-recycling module of the evo series from the company’s long-standing development partner Hitachi Omron Terminal Solutions (HOTS) as part of the co-creation process. Some of these core pieces will soon be on their way to beautiful Italy.

5 ways to make your branches more accessible
Banks provide local financial services and make an important contribution to the lives of their customers. This is precisely why inclusion and accessibility are not buzzwords for financial institutions, but a social responsibility.
We have summarised five ways you can make your bank branches more inclusive and think outside the box of legal requirements:
Comfortable cash deposits in the fresh air
The Erste Bank and Sparkasse are now offering this service using the new outdoor cash recycler ATMs from KEBA, which naturally enough still allow money to be withdrawn. KEBA recently installed three outdoor ATMs with cash recycling function for the Sparkasse in Dornbirn and an outdoor cash recycler KePlus FT10 can also be found at the Erste Bank self-service branch in Wiener Neudorf (Vienna).
Commerzbank invests in 800 ATMs from Austrian company KEBA
Commerzbank is investing in its modern branch equipment and will gradually install 800 new ATMs in its nationwide branches until 2024. Again, the devices exclusively come from Austrian automation expert KEBA AG and combine deposit as well as withdrawal of banknotes and coins.
