Executive
Briefing

Dear Panini Partner,

Welcome to summer! It looks like summer is finally here in all of our North American markets. It seems like it took forever to get here – but I am sure glad it did! As many of you know, I live in Chicago and have been a Chicago White Sox fan. It is tempting to look to the North Side, given the outstanding season the Cubs are off to this season! Fun times!

It has been an exciting time for Panini Global Technical Services as well. There is a lot going on and our team is extremely busy. We are seeing an incredible amount of interest in the Panini Avantor Solution for device management. We now have customers with anywhere from 100 licenses to over 10,000. I would encourage all of our partners to take a close look at Avantor and see where it can add additional value and service capability to your offerings.

The new Panini ScanStation and related software is getting some strong interest from RDC customers who already have a Panini batch scanner and see value in being able to scan full page documents. With the ScanStation software, you can now drive the full page capture without touching the RDC application – they can operate independently! Check it out and talk to your customers!

Finally, don’t forget about Spring Cleaning and the Panini approved supplies. Make sure your customers are only using the Panini branded cleaning products and Panini AGP ink. We have seen some “knock off” products entering the market and those can damage the machine and void the warranty – be careful!

I hope to connect with many of you in the second half of 2016. Don’t hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance in any way! 

Sincerely, 

Joe Sanders

VP Global Services

Product
Updates

FIS Direct Merchant v16 Supports Panini Vision 1
FIS Direct Merchant v16 was released this summer and includes support for our newest small volume platform, the Vision 1, in both the thin and thick client versions.
Since all of the direct products use a common scanner layer, our customers interested in using Vision 1 with Direct Branch or Direct Teller, can do so with no additional or very minor development work by FIS.

Synovus using FIS Direct Merchant v15 with mI:Deal
Synovus chose the mI:Deal with FIS Direct Merchant as it allows them to support both Mac and Windows per their customers’ request. FIS added mI:Deal support to Direct Merchant v15 and it also allows them to support browsers other than Internet Explorer.

PartnerPlus Updates and Improvements
Panini recently conducted surveys with our Partners on what they liked and disliked in PartnerPlusOverall most partners like the website, but there was room for improvement in the navigation. The new menu options will help you find items quicker and easier. Regardless of your role you now have access to all tools, there is no longer a division between Sales and Marketing. Our goal was to make everything easy to find, and overall more organized. We will continue to tweak the site over the next few months, so if you have suggestions please send them our way.
