Everlink Payment Services Inc. is pleased to announce that Credit Union Electronic Account Management Services (CEAMS) - an association of 43 credit unions in Saskatchewan and Manitoba representing 253,000 credit union members and $8.9 billion in assets - will begin leveraging Everlink's Central Card Issuance (CCI) solution to begin issuing Interac Flash™ enabled debit cards in 2014.
“Everlink’s industry-leading Central Card Issuance solution was developed with the needs of credit unions in mind,” says Mark Ripplinger, President & CEO at Everlink. “With this solution CEAMS will be able to offer their members across Saskatchewan secure and innovative debit cards leveraging the latest contactless technology while remaining incredibly cost-effective.”
“CEAMS is excited to partner with Everlink to bring to our credit unions a debit card product that combines the convenience of Interac Flash™ and the security of EMV chip technology” says Alister Lowe, General Manager of the CEAMS Association. The partnership will provide “expanded opportunities for CEAMS credit unions to promote their individual brand and leverage refreshed debit card design.”
Everlink’s CCI solution enables financial institutions to reliably and cost-effectively produce contactless and 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.
