Olicom, the new owner of Olivetti banking & postal specialised printers, has appointed the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, as an authorised distributor and service partner to sell and support Olivetti banking products in the UK and Ireland from specialist manufacturer.
The strategic partnership has been designed to provide the banking and financial sector with improved access to these innovative printing solutions.
Olivetti’s range of passbook printers has technologically evolved over recent years by incorporating enhanced functionality, such as the ability to capture debit and credit card details, as well as ID cards. In addition to the most well-known Olivetti PR2 and MB multifunctional printers in the world, one of the company’s most popular products is the open frame Olivetti A600K, the only scanner that combines a cheque reader (MICR) and document scanner in one single device, which can seamlessly integrate into self-service kiosks and ATMs. Its small footprint allows self-service systems to be upgraded at a low cost and it has been successfully implemented on a large scale by major ATM vendors as part of important branch transformation projects.
Alfredo Isacchi, Vice President at Olicom, said: "The TALL Group boasts a strong reputation and a significant footprint across the UK and Ireland, which will enable more companies from across this region to benefit from our world-class printing solutions. We are absolutely confident that the TALL Group’s presence and growing influence will ensure this partnership is highly successful and profitable."
Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director of the TALL Group of Companies, said: "As an established leader in the provision of passbooks, we have huge synergies with Olicom. We have a strong and proactive sales, distribution and service department and we are very excited to offer the innovative Olivetti range to the banking and financial sector across the UK and Ireland."
