Agreement aligns HDP printing technology with TRISM software for instant issuance financial cards
Minneapolis, MN (April 4, 2008) - HID Global, the trusted leader in providing solutions for the delivery of secure identity, today announced it has signed an agreement with DemoTeller Systems Inc., (DSI) who will distribute a bundled system to financial institutions for instant issuance of non-embossed cards.
The system is targeted at banks and credit unions, and will allow them to issue debit, credit and prepaid cards on-the-spot at the branch. Instant issuance provides immediate gratification to customers and added revenues to banks as their customers can begin to use their cards within minutes of opening an account.
At the heart of the system is HID’s Fargo HDPii, an instant issuance flat card printer featuring Fargo's patented High Definition Printing (HDP) technology. HDP's re-transfer technology is also found in HID's successful line of Fargo HDP ID card printers.
"The superior print quality of the HDPii is important in the financial card market," said Steve Blake, director of business development & professional services for HID Global. "With the DemoTeller solution, cards can be printed instantly at branch locations. It's critical that all branding elements are consistent throughout the network of branches, and that the quality of photos and other personalized card features is exceptional. With the HDPii, the DemoTeller solution can accomplish that."
Completing the system is DemoTeller's TRISM software, a unique application that includes both host and client modules. The host software is loaded at the main bank operations center where card information is set up, encrypted and stored. At the branch locations, the client module allows bank personnel to choose or change PINs, print and encode cards. DemoTeller products are already in use at thousands of banks across the country.
"Banks understand the value of instant issuance," said Charlie East, President of DemoTeller. "Their customers get the cards immediately, and put them to use faster. Banks have less preprinted card stock to keep in inventory, which provides better security and reduces costs. This new solution gives them all the benefits, without losing control over critical components of their card program."
