NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EFT Source announced today a new product for financial institutions to easily and more affordably issue cards instantly.
Card@Once® allows banks and credit unions to provide debit, prepaid or reloadable cards to customers on-site within seconds. Company officials believe Card@Once is the first instant issue solution to successfully undergo an independent, third party PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) audit. EFT Source partnered with Evolis, worldwide manufacturer of card printers, to develop the proprietary equipment, and the first Card@Once machines were delivered last week and are in service.
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.
“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 stand alone solution.
