MINNETONKA, Minn. (8/21/12)--Datacard Group, a secure identification and card personalization provider, has released an instant-issue card system.
The CR500 system allows credit unions, banks, retailers and service bureaus to print ready-to-use, flat financial cards on demand. The system, which offers encoding capabilities and image quality with retransfer print technology, turns blank white stock into customized, ready-to-use permanent payment cards instantly, said Datacard.
The CR500 system can print credit, debit or ATM cards. It is integrated with Datacard CardWizard issuance software, which transfers all cardholder personalization data fully encrypted to the CR500 system--delivering a four-color, one-sided card in 36 seconds or one two-sided card in 65 seconds.
The system has magnetic stripe encoding, contact and contactless encoding options for EuroPay-MasterCard-Visa compliant card issuance, and includes a dual-control security enclosure that complies with industry security standards.
