Dynamic Card Solutions (DCS), the leading provider of instant issuance and PIN selection solutions for banks, credit unions and retailers that issue magnetic stripe, EMV and contactless cards, today announced that it has signed Glacier Bancorp (Nasdaq: GBCI).
DCS is working with Glacier Bancorp, a holding company of 11 banks and 94 branches in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Washington, to implement a state-of-the-art card program that instantly issues unembossed Visa debit cards at the branch level. Glacier Bancorp plans to begin rolling out DCS' CardWizard software and FCP 20/20 unembossed card printers to two of its banks -- Mountain West Bank, which has 24 branches; and Glacier Bank, with 15 branches.
Utilizing DCS' technology, Mountain West Bank and Glacier Bank will now be able to offer new customers who open a checking account as well as existing customers who need a replacement debit card, the ability to simply walk into the branch and receive an unembossed personalized Visa debit card in a matter of minutes that can be immediately used when they leave the branch.
By issuing unembossed Visa debit cards, Mountain West and Glacier Bank will have the ability to offer a gallery of images that cardholders can personally select for their card background. Once the background is selected, DCS' CardWizard software transfers all personalization data fully encrypted to the FCP 20/20 printer which quickly and securely prints in high-definition color onto both sides of white blank card stock the personalized unembossed card.
"We are very pleased to have signed Glacier Bancorp as a partner," said Ron Zanotti, senior vice president of DCS. "In the financial industry, they are committed to offering innovative products and services to their customers. By instantly issuing debit cards, they look forward to converting check and cash transactions to debit so they can capture additional interchange revenue and provide improved service. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Glacier Bancorp as they continue to offer our instant issue technology to their customers."
DCS' CardWizard instant issue software can be configured to accommodate the goals and objectives of most card issuers. DCS has worked with many banks, credit unions and retailers to install thousands of branches/locations with the instant issue and PIN-selection capabilities.
