NORTH CANTON, Ohio (7/24/09)--ATM manufacturer Diebold Inc. announced it has introduced the Electronic Vault Attendant (EVA) Elite, which offers a dual-controlled vault and safe deposit box access for financial institutions. EVA Elite eliminates the necessity of a vault attendant. EVA’s dual controls include physical access control to grant entry to the vault’s daygate, and the use of an electronic and physical key to enable safe deposit box owners to access only their assigned boxes, Diebold said. EVA can be customized, depending on the level of security desired by financial institutions. Reader devices, including fingerprinting, hand geometry, card swiping and signature capture can be combined with the daygate. Randolph Brooks FCU has deployed the solution at its Bulverde, Texas, branch and plans to implement the system at its 31 other branches. “The solution has greatly freed up employee time,” said Pat Tolle, Randolph Brooks vice president of technical services. Diebold is a CUNA Strategic Service provider based in North Canton, Ohio.
