Diebold Nixdorf will begin upgrading 1,400 automatic teller machines for KeyBank as part of an expanded partnership.

GREEN  KeyBank has reached an agreement to upgrade 1,400 automatic teller machines with technology from Diebold Nixdorf.

In a joint announcement issued Wednesday, the upgrade is part of KeyBank's strategy to enhance self-service consumer transactions and increase banking options. The two Northeast Ohio corporations said they have been longtime partners.

Expanding KeyBank's software platforms will allow the bank to execute a "future-focused strategy for business development and innovation," according to the release. The process will connect KeyBank's digital and physical systems in a bid to provide "a seamless consumer journey."

Diebold Nixdorf will install its Vynamic product portfolio on the ATMs. Vynamic gives customers more options and allows them to conduct more advanced ATM transactions by connecting to KeyBank's core system. Vynamic also provides operational support to manage the ATM fleet.

KeyBank believes the partnership with Diebold Nixdorf will help the bank enhance the way it engages with customers, Dennis Devine, president of Consumer Bank at KeyBank, said in the press release.

According to the release, Diebold Nixdorf's Vynamic portfolio "creates a best-in-class, self-service environment" that helps KeyBank address compliance requirements while moving more transactions to self-service.

Octavio Marquez, Diebold Nixdorf's senior vice president and managing director for Banking Americas, said the company is "excited to continue our partnership with KeyBank by providing software, maintenance and professional services that enable new and improved capabilities across both the physical and digital channels."
