EFT Source teams up with Evolis to introduce new option for instant card issuance
EFT Source, a leading provider of turn¬key card production and management solutions, partnered with Evolis, a leader in plastic card personalization solutions to develop Card@Once®, a new product for financial institutions to issue cards instantly.
How it works:
When a customer requests a card, the data is securely transferred from the branch location to EFT Source. The data is immediately processed and converted into a print file that is sent back to the branch electronically. Card@Once® encodes the data and prints the card allowing the customer to walk away with a ready-to-use, active card.
EFT Source trusted Evolis, worldwide manufacturer of card printers, to develop the proprietary equipment. The Card@Once® card printers have been designed based on the Evolis dual-sided color card printer, Dualys. Fast and easy-to-use, Dualys offers unmatched print quality along with a unique 3-year warranty.
“Our unique expertise allows us to customize our printers based on our customers’ requirements”
“We are excited to bring Card@Once® to the market because it’s a unique, turn-key solution for instant card issuance,” said Bill Dinker, EFT Source president. “It’s secure, it’s cost-effective and it’s easy to use. These machines are literally ‘plug and play’ because it’s a web-based solution that does not require system set-up for an IT department. And, in this day and age where we get information, products and services in an instant, consumers don’t want to wait a week to get a debit card in the mail. With Card@Once®, financial institutions have a competitive edge.”
Additional benefits for Card@Once® include key management, custom card designs, toll¬-free technical support, 24-hour replacement, and the option to integrate with core processors or operate as a standalone solution.
The first Card@Once® machines have already been delivered and are in service.
