MARIETTA, Ga. – LGE Community CU said it has purchased 15 of Diebold’s Opteva ATMs, including 13 deposit automation-enabled terminals and two cash dispensers, for its seven branches.

LGE, formerly known as Lockheed Georgia Employees Credit Union, said its new Roswell branch, scheduled to open later this year, will feature four banking stations equipped with customized Opteva ATMs and a collaboration area where LGE representatives can interact with members.

The credit union said it has been transforming its branch model over the last few years, working with CashTrans to install Diebold RemoteTeller Systems at several branches. The RemoteTeller System replaced traditional branch teller counters with stations that integrate pneumatics and two-way video. Diebold said a single teller attends multiple pneumatic tube stations, delivering direct service to members while reducing LGE’s staffing needs.

“Adopting more technology-oriented and automated branch models has enabled LGE to reduce operational expenses, while enhancing the experience for our members,” said Chris Leggett, president of the $950-million credit union. “From RemoteTeller Systems to collaborative ATM stations, we are providing convenient, efficient banking and more personal service.”
