EMV Instant Issuance
EMV instant issuance enables instant personalisation and activation of an EMV chip card. Such functionality enhances customer service, lowers the risk of cards being stolen during distribution and saves on distribution costs.
Instant issuance refers to the process of personalising and issuing a card upon request. It typically takes place at distributed customer service points where card requests are received, such as bank branches and retail outlets and is performed using desktop card printers. Some issuers also use instant issuance technology to set up their own in-house small scale personalisation bureaux to save the expense of buying bulk personalisation equipment.
Bell ID® EMV Instant Issuance Manager connects desktop EMV card printers to back-office servers, enabling banks to instantly issue EMV chip cards to customers while in the branch. This expands customer service capabilities while decreasing card distribution cost and the risk of cards and PIN mailers being stolen during distribution.
