Instant Issuance

Instant Issuance of EMV Cards

FARGO® HDPii Plus Financial Card Desktop Printer/Encoder enables the secure, instant issuance of both ISO magnetic swipe and contact/contactless EMV® cards at thousands of branch offices and other distributed locations, saving both time and money for the financial issuer while providing the card holder with a secure card that can be used immediately.

Many customers are still left waiting for days to receive their new or replacement credit and debit cards that often are not ever activated by the customer that receives them. But thanks to advanced secure issuance technologies, organizations can now instantly print activated financial cards and hand them directly to the customer, without any mailing necessary. At the time of the card issuance, customers can also choose to include a customized image for the card, such as a family portrait, pet or favorite vacation spot. For the financial institutions, these features ultimately increase customer retention and satisfaction but also increase their card profit by reducing operational cost, elevated card usage through faster card activation, ad hoc card usage training and attractive rewards programs.

In summary, benefits of card issuers to consider instant issuance solutions:

  • Lift activation rate

  • Faster 1st transaction

  • No worries about extra costs, theft and losses in the process of card delivery

  • Cost reduction in inventory control and logistics

  • Cost reduction of the overall card personalization management operation

  • Increase card usage

  • Provides better customer experience

  • Effective marketing tool

  • Increases customers’ loyalty/affinity

To meet the high security and performance levels demanded by instant financial issuance, the new HDPii Plus features AES256 data encryption, resin ribbon erase functionality and inline encoding capability for both ISO magnetic swipe and Europay MasterCard and Visa (EMV) contact/contactless chips. For increased productivity, an optional dual card input hopper uniquely allows for convenient and automatic switching between two different card types.  This feature now enables banks to seamlessly and securely print to different card stocks when either Visa® and MasterCard® pre-branded cards are used or when switching between traditional magnetic swipe and EMV cards are needed for customers.
