Credit cards, debit cards, and prepaid cards. Everyone uses them for a variety of transactions. With our innovative technical solutions and individualization services, you can turn conventional payment cards into powerful service-providing tools. Offering personalized smart cards with mobile and contactless services increases customer loyalty and satisfaction. And at the same time, you can significantly minimize the impact of fraud. Keeping your card offering always up to date is a win-win-win situation: for end users, your brand, and your bottom line.

Our comprehensive portfolio comprises high-end smart cards and mobile applications for debit card, credit card, and prepaid card use cases. Of course, everything is based on the latest EMV standard. Our technologies include contact, contactless, and dual interface. All products are supported by our wide range of secure, flexible platforms that ensure the highest standards and manageability.

To fulfill needs for differentiation and enhance competitiveness, we have extended our portfolio to include metal cards, environmentally friendly cards, and biometric cards with fingerprint readers. Because individualization has become so crucial to success in today’s ultra-competitive environment, we offer a full range of customization services – such as picture cards, or cards in a vast choice of materials and shapes. Of course, we also have you covered with standardized, high-volume products.

Complete convenience for card issuers

Payment cards and similar applications have been around for a long time – and they are as popular as ever. Yet the demands placed on them by consumers and financial institutions have increased dramatically. Today expectations range from measures to protect sensitive information when used offline all the way to support for cost-effective marketing tools for issuers. We meet those expectations. In addition, we deliver industry-leading security for the operating system and applications, as well as for the card or alternative form factor itself.
