Diebold Nixdorf Brings its Bank-Like Kiosk to Emirates NBD Customers

Diebold Nixdorf announced this week that it partnered with Emirates NBD to bring consumers in the United Arab Emirates access to its digital kiosk that offers a variety of banking services.

The bank has called the kiosk EasyHub, and the capabilities go far beyond a typical ATM. This kiosk allows customers to conduct many of the activities they would typically do in a brick-and-mortar bank, all outside of bank operating hours. Users interact with a video teller and follow written instructions on the screen to sign up for new products and services, apply for and receive a new debit card, update their personal details, request a checkbook, authenticate statements, and even apply for a personal loan.

Diebold Nixdorf’s Vynamic Connection Points, a multi-vendor software allowing for customized applications, is powering the EasyHub kiosk. The device comes with a debit card dispenser, biometric signature pad, document scanner, statement printer, ID reader, cash recycler and coin dispenser, and an NFC reader for contactless transactions.

In a blog post, Abdulla Qassem Emirates NBD group chief operating officer cited EasyHub’s customer-first approach, increased flexibility, and superior service among the benefits of teaming up with Diebold Nixdorf.

Diebold Nixdorf appeared on the Finovate stage alongside Zenmonics at FinovateFall 2014 to showcase an in-lobby terminal. Founded in 1859, the company is partnered with almost all of the world’s top 100 banks and most of the top 25 global retailers. Diebold Nixdorf is headquartered in Ohio and has 23,000 employees across the globe.

Kony and Diebold Nixdorf Enter into Strategic Partnership

Mobile app developer, Kony, has partnered with Diebold Nixdorf to provide a white-label, mobile application suite. Under the agreement, Diebold Nixdorf has branded Kony’s mobile application suite DN Mobile. The solution will offer a unified, cross-platform experience that is personalized to each user. The partnership, which aims to “address key mobility trends around consumer loyalty and digital experiences,” will:

  • Move to the next generation of mobile applications quickly by offering banks turn-key mobile app options
  • Engage the API economy by offering an open services-oriented application platform
  • Avoid silos by enabling connected commerce across self-service, POS, branch and digital channels

In the press release Alan Kerr, senior vice president, software, Diebold Nixdorf said that the partnership offers Diebold Nixdorf an “extended reach into mobile applications.” Kerr added that the move will “blend channels together in innovative, new ways and propel [its] vision of connected commerce into the marketplace.”

Diebold Nixdorf will acquire a minority equity stake in Kony and will obtain a seat on the company’s board. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 2007, Kony enables banks to design, develop, and visualize device-agnostic applications deployed across multiple channels. At FinovateFall 2011, the company debuted a commercial banking app. Last month, Kony launched AppVantage to help organizations quickly develop customizable mobile apps from pre-packaged components.

Diebold Nixdorf appeared on the Finovate stage alongside Zenmonics at FinovateFall 2014 to showcase an in-lobby terminal. In late 2016, the company launched a contactless, self-checkout concept and earlier this year merged with German ATM maker Wincor Nixdorf.
