Keyboard Banking

SPI GmbH and ReiseBank AG | Hardware meets Software

The Challenge

ReiseBank AG, a daughter company of DZ BANK AG, operates foreign currency exchange offices at train stations, airports, and in shopping centers. They process money transfers to other countries and trade noble metals. They required a keyboard with a small footprint that offered a magnetic stripe reader for debit and credit cards, and allowed for free programming of long sequences on each individual key.

The Solution

PrehKeyTec’s MCI 30 and its features made a very convincing impression from the beginning and complied exactly with the requirements of the end user. The custom layout and the programming functions adapted perfectly to the existing banking software.



„The keyboard is compact and durable, very resilient for continuous operation at the counter. Therefore we are extremely pleased with the MCI 30.“
