25 Years of Successful Co-operation between Erste Bank/Sparkassen and KEBA
Self-service banking is convenient and easy to understand for bank customers - but that a technology lies behind this, which must offer the highest standards of user friendliness and security, is less well-known. The Österreichische Sparkassengruppe and the Austrian automation specialist KEBA have driven a successful partnership of innovation in this field for 25 years.
The Österreichische Sparkassengruppe and the Austrian automation specialist KEBA have driven a successful partnership of innovation in this field for 25 years. And almost to the day exactly 10 years ago, the first self-service ATM at an Austrian bank with a closed cash cycle - in the specialist jargon cash recycler - was put into operation at Sparkasse Niederösterreich Mitte West AG. We gained attention in 2017 once more with an innovation and milestone in self-service banking: a new generation of self-service dispensing devices placing the user and their requirements still more centre stage and opening up new possibilities in self-service banking.
“KEBA values highly the long-standing partnership of innovation over many years with Österreichische Sparkassengruppe.”, states Gerhard Luftensteiner, CEO at KEBA AG. '“We can look back together on a series of milestones in the automation of self-service banking in the previous 25 years. The Österreichische Sparkassengruppe was also the first with which KEBA generated enthusiasm for its cash recycling ATMs. A further important milestone is the successful piloting of the new KEBA “evo” series of ATMs with Österreichische Sparkassengruppe.”*
