Panini History

1945 Antonio Panini establishes Panini in Torino as a distributor of office equipment.

1975 Panini brings innovation to the banking industry, launching a revolutionary image capture system for managing paper documents.

1980 The LS Series high-speed readers/sorters are launched, becoming the standard for the management of checks in major Italian financial institutions.

1992 With the truncation of the check in Italy, new opportunities are created for banks, and Panini assists its clients by developing the S1 mid-size readers/sorters, and later S1 Vision, achieving national leadership.

1995 The U.S. subsidiary, Panini North America, is founded in Dayton, OH to conquer the largest world check market. This is the beginning of the international distribution of Panini products and solutions.

2004 The MyVision X check scanner is born, resulting in the company being declared market leader by important international financial organizations with over 400,000 devices installed over time.

2007 The company is named one of the Top 10 Technology Companies to Watch by Bank Technology News based on innovation and contribution to the improvement of banking processes. In the same year, Panini was recognized on the annual "Innovators" list.

2008 The company launches the Vision X series, a new generation of check scanner adaptable to every processing need, and the Vision S, a new generation mid-size reader/sorter.

2008 Panini organizes the international design competition "Share a New Vision" for the redesign of bank branches-a benchmark for developing the "branch of the future" concept in collaboration with industry organizations and financial institutions. The company is also declared market leader in Remote Deposit Capture installations in the USA for the third consecutive year.

2009 The company introduces I:Deal, a solution for remote check capture intended for small and medium-sized businesses, and an integral part of the company's strategy of continuing growth and innovation in customer service.

2010 Panini designs its first multi-format scanner, the wI:Deal, as an extension to the I:Deal able to process full pages and rigid documents. The new full page scanning engine is also used to extend the Vision X within the project named MFS (Multi-Function System), which also includes a thermal receipt printer and a USB hub, aiming at optimized teller workstation ergonomics and integration.
Success with three major Financial Institution projects solidifies Panini’s stable presence in Brazil.

2012 The Avantor monitoring platform, offering asset management, performance optimization and security, is Panini’s first software-only product, available for branch and RDC check scanner installations.

2013 The Vision neXt is Panini’s new flagship – a full teller automation tool, rather than just a check scanner.
The new mI:Deal intelligent single document scanner extends professional check capture to new environments such as POS capture, mobility and untethered “future branch” applications.

2016  The EverneXt combines the Vision neXt's unique advantages with the revolutionary "Everest" architecture which makes Panini scanners API-free, OS-agnostic, network-enabled and capable of working with a variety of host devices in wired or wireless mode. A cornerstone for full-fledged branch transformation projects.

2020  A record year for Panini in the year of the pandemic outburst - with the company making an important donation to healthecare institutions fighting COVID-19 in Italy and in Ohio. The new Mission Statement is announced with a joint focus on both Payments and Secure Identity, and the corporate Headquarters is moved to a modern and open location in the city of Torino, better aligned with the company’s fast-paced, technology-driven culture.
