Personalised smart cards for... everything! (case study)

A closed purchase scheme supplier required a card to be personalised for use in Chip and PIN terminals, Magnetic Stripe readers, Barcode readers and a Zip-zap machine (manual credit card machine).

CPS sourced a microprocessor-based smart card that could be used in Chip and PIN terminals, and then went on to add the Magnetic Stripe and the Barcode .

Once the smart cards had been electronically personalised, this allowed all of the different types of electronic devices to read the card data.

Finally, we embossed this data onto the card, as per the standard debit and credit card layout, allowing the use of manual credit card machines.

The solution was sourced and trialled, and the customer now has over 90,000 cards in the field and growing daily.
