Everlink Payment Services Inc. is pleased to announce that Cambrian Credit Union - Manitoba's 3rd largest credit union (by assets) and the 9th largest in Canada (by assets) - has made the move to Everlink's Central Card Issuance Solution (CCI) effective June 5th, 2013.
With the aide of Everlink's EMV expertise and solutions, Cambrian will be issuing dual interface debit cards over the next 5 years with the launch of the new card product scheduled for the end of 2013.
"Canada has become a global leader in contactless card issuance and it is in no small part due to forward thinking financial institutions such as Cambrian Credit Union," says Mark Ripplinger, President and CEO of Everlink. "As this trend becomes more and more prevalent, Everlink will continue to develop the innovative card issuance solutions needed to satisfy the demands of future members and customers."
"Cambrian is very excited to be working with Everlink, especially during this rapidly changing payments landscape in Canada" says Connie Clarke, Vice-President Systems and Administration. "We are confident Everlink will best position Cambrian in offering the most innovative and secure payment systems to our members."
The Everlink CCI solution enables financial institutions to reliably and cost-effectively produce EMV Chip debit cards from a secure central facility, offering distribution options to send the cards directly to the member/customer or to the branch.
CCI leverages relationships Everlink has with card production suppliers who operate facilities certified by VISA Inc., MasterCard Worldwide and Interac , offering complementary, end-to-end solutions with proven, tried and true, in-production technology. CCI aligns perfectly with the needs of today's payment card issuers looking to maximize quality and reduce cost-per-card.
