Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, is pleased to announce an instant issuance pilot program implementation with Mountain America Credit Union (MACU).
MACU is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, thanks in large part to their commitment to delivering quality products and services to their nearly 320,000 members. Instantly issued credit cards are a service that MACU has offered for some time, but they approached Datacard Group when they wanted to increase the quality and overall value of the program.
"MACU has seen higher activation and card utilization with our branch issuance program, and customers like the convenience of getting a card right away," said Tony Rasmussen, SVP of MACU. "The Datacard® solution will help MACU build on this successful program and deliver more attractive, higher quality cards to our customers."
Working with Problem Solved, Datacard developed, implemented and supported instant card issuance software that is integrated with MACU's existing Symitar host system, and is also interfaced with Pemco, a payment solutions company, for card activation.
For card production, MACU utilizes the Datacard® RP90iTM financial card printer, which offers security features that meet established specifications for the instant issuance of Visa® cards. The RP90i card printer delivers brilliant, full-color retransfer printing with over-the-edge coverage, enabling the production of unique designs to help build member loyalty.
"Image quality on the card was an important consideration for MACU in selecting a partner for this program," said Russell St. John, vice president of global marketing for Datacard Group. "They compared competitive products side by side and were impressed by the color reproduction and clarity of the cards printed using the RP90i printer."
