HID Global and DemoTeller Systems create new financial card solution


HID Global has signed an agreement with DemoTeller Systems Inc. (DSI), which will provide a system to banks and credit unions for issuing non-embossed debit, credit and pre-paid cards on the spot.

This service brings immediate customer satisfaction as well as added revenues to banks as new customers can begin to use their cards within minutes of opening an account.
At the heart of the system is HID’s Fargo HDPii, a flat card printer featuring Fargo's patented High Definition Printing (HDP) technology.

Director of Business Development & Professional Services for HID Global Steve Blake says: "The superior print quality of the HDPii is important in the financial card market. With the DemoTeller solution, cards can be printed instantly at branch locations. It's critical that all branding elements are consistent throughout the network of branches, and that the quality of photos and other personalized card features is exceptional. With the HDPii, the DemoTeller solution can accomplish that."

Completing the system is DemoTeller's TRISM software, a unique application that includes both host and client modules. The host software is loaded at the main bank operations center where card information is set up, encrypted and stored. At the branch locations, the client module allows bank personnel to choose or change PIN codes, and to print and encode cards. DemoTeller products are already in use at thousands of banks across the country.

President of DemoTeller Charlie East says: "Banks understand the value of instant issuing. Their customers get the cards immediately, and put them to use faster. Banks have less pre-printed card stock to keep in inventory, which provides better security and reduces costs. This new solution gives them all the benefits, without losing control over critical components of their card program."
