CPI Touts Speed, Security of New Instant-Issuance Printer
A new instant-issuance product from CPI Card Group promises faster card processing times along with higher resolution printing. Called Precision by Card@Once, the system is designed to improve security and the customer experience.
CPI worked with France-based card printer company Evolis on the technology. The system features “a color touch screen display which allows users to more easily track the progress of the printing process and manage any maintenance updates as needed,” CPI said. As well, patented technology from Evolis “masks any residual sensitive cardholder information on printing ribbons—eliminating the need for financial institutions to shred them.”
In the U.S., financial institutions produce more than 3.6 million on-demand payment cards per year for their customers, according to CPI. “Financial institutions today are actively looking for ways to more directly engage their customers within the branch,” said Jean-Charles Pichon, key account manager at Evolis.
