Payments specialist, allpay Limited, has added Visa Card manufacturing and Bureau accreditation to its impressive portfolio of existing products and services.
The company, based in Hereford, worked closely with Visa to pass the strict accreditation. Initially achieving Visa Bureau Vendor status, Visa Manufacturing Accreditation followed shortly after and includes card production and EMV chip embedding.
allpay can now offer its clients full Visa EMV production and services from its purpose built, highly secure production area which was developed with an investment in excess of £2 million.
The company's unique offering in the market is its ability to accommodate small, medium and large production runs and tight lead times. Teamed with world class service levels and the flexibility to deal with specific customer requirements allpay's appeal to the financial services industry has been further strengthened.
"allpay has become one of just six approved Visa Vendors in the UK and we are thrilled that we've also met Visa's extremely high standards and can now produce their internationally recognised cards," comments Mark Thomas, allpay Deputy Managing Director.
allpay boasts an impressive suite of accreditations which include MasterCard®, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 18001 and ISO 27001.
"In addition to existing and new magnetic stripe card customers, allpay is now able to extend its capability to supply an increasing number of organisations such as banks, building societies and other scheme providers with a full EMV chip and pin card, offering the choice of two global payment methods - MasterCard and now Visa. It's an exciting time for the company and we're looking forward to the fresh challenges it brings," concluded Mark.
