Company to showcase industry-leading software solutions for financial instant issuance.
HONG KONG, CHINA — March 28, 2011 — Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, today announced it will be showcasing its suite of financial instant issuance solutions including Datacard® CardWizard® issuance software at CARTES in Asia 2011.
The Datacard®CardWizard® issuance software allows financial institutions to provide ready-to-use financial cards in a matter of minutes. Cardholders leave the branch with a permanent, fully functional, personalized card that is activated and ready for use. Instant issuance eliminates the delays and hassles of third party production, mailing and later activation, while reducing issuer costs and risks of sending the cards and PINs through the mail.
“Datacard Group has strategically expanded our product portfolio of end-to-end instant issuance solutions for card issuers,” said Angus McDougall, regional vice president, Asia Pacific for Datacard Group. “The company stands committed to offer innovation in the marketplace so that we continue to position ourselves for fast growth in a promising global market.”
The CardWizard issuance software is part of the Datacard Secure Issuance Anywhere™ infrastructure which includes scalable, flexible hardware, software, supplies, consultation and project management for any card issuance or personalization environment. The card programs can include central or instant issuance, PIN selection and PIN change, embossed or unembossed cards, mobile payments and NFC personalization, as well as contact, contactless and EMV®-compliant applications.
“Datacard empowers issuers to securely, reliably and conveniently issue and personalize payment applications that best suit their customers’ needs,” added McDougall. “This increases revenue, enhances customer convenience and experience, as well as strengthens program security.”
