"The selection process for the IAOP Global Outsourcing 100 list mirrors much of the criteria a financial institution considers when evaluating service providers, which is why placement on this list is such an honor," said Thomas W. Swidarski, Diebold president and chief executive officer.  "We are constantly striving to provide customers with offerings lowering their costs, increasing their return on investment and keeping them ahead of technology while freeing them to focus on servicing customers and growing their businesses.  Being recognized by IAOP means we're doing our job."

Diebold Integrated Services outsourcing solutions enable financial institutions to achieve a healthy balance among revenue, efficiency and visibility.  The turnkey solutions address self-service technology, deposit and teller automation, risk mitigation, mobile banking, currency management, software deployment, network management, remote monitoring, break-fix services, project management, content delivery and more.

Diebold can also expertly manage any number of products and services essential to an institution's operation to help reduce dependency on multiple vendors and help position them to enter into alternate delivery channels.  Through best-in-class approaches to retail banking operations, security and personal service, Diebold's outsourcing solutions help financial institutions strategically respond to trends and regulations, such as mobile banking and security protocols.

Security is one of the most technically challenging and time-consuming areas of a financial institution's operations, and Diebold is able to design, implement and manage a multi-layered security solution - logical, physical and enterprise - to fit business processes.  To help prevent breaches before they occur, Diebold also allows institutions to remotely manage and update security software any time a new threat is identified to keep operations running smoothly.

"As the economy recovers, partnering with the world's best outsourcing providers and advisors will be more important than ever," said IAOP Chairman Michael Corbett and chair of the judges' panel.  "The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors help companies easily identify those partners that will help them emerge as leaders."
