ESSEN, Germany and NORTH CANTON, Ohio, July 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD), a world leader in driving connected commerce, has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 for its DN Series™ 200 model ATM, a solution that offers the latest cash dispensing and cash recycling technology in the most compact form in the industry. Internationally recognized as the authority for product quality, The Red Dot Award for Product Design is one of the world's largest design competitions. The DN Series 200 stood out from the other 5,500 products in the competition because of its outstanding design and user experience.
As part of the DN Series solutions portfolio, this model highlights many elements that elevate financial institutions' branch transformation processes, including:
- An approachable, clean design with a clear interface that is intuitively guided through integrated lighting cues.
- The most advanced security against fraud protection with side panels for increased privacy, a discreetly integrated camera and consumer awareness mirrors.
- Hardware composed of high-quality, durable materials, while retaining a premium appearance with refined design details.
- Clear and efficient distinctions of touchpoints, bold LED illumination and labeling that are compliant with international accessibility standards.
- A consumer-aligned, modern aesthetic that supports custom branding and signage to fit into any environment.
- The ability to be field upgraded with future technologies.
The DN Series 200 appears and interacts like a solution from the future. The modern configuration and interface enhances financial institutions' efforts to appeal to their consumers and their need for digitized self-service banking. In a consumer focus group for this solution, the DN Series was the most popular of the machines, and it was identified as being the most on-trend and easiest to use. One participant even said that there was nothing "boxy-looking" or traditional about its appearance and noted that it seemed new, sleek and modern.
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot, said: "I would like to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their wonderful success. The fact that their products were able to satisfy the strict criteria of the jury bears testimony to their award-winning design quality. The laureates are thus setting key trends in the design industry and are showing where future directions may lead."
U Thein Zaw Tun (Don), Managing Director at CB Bank, said: "We are very proud and excited to be the first bank in Myanmar to install the DN Series. With a modern and futuristic design, we have been able to offer customers a fresh user interface through a large touchscreen and ultimately a superior experience at the ATMs. Customer feedback has been extremely positive and our consumers have quickly and easily embraced this new solution. We look forward to integrating the DN Series further into our customer journeys and leveraging the full extent of its capabilities."
Ulrich Näher, senior vice president of systems at Diebold Nixdorf, said: "Receiving this Red Dot Award confirms the success of our next-generation DN Series solutions and their ability to change the ways financial institutions interact with their customers. The design of this solution stemmed from extensive market research. With more personalization capabilities than ever before, it plays an integral part in financial institutions' digital strategy and their approach to consumer experience."
