Xpressi instant card issuance software and Javelin(TM) card printers enables Vancity to become the first financial institution in Canada to issue Chip & PIN cards instantly

NBS Technologies today announced that Vancouver City Savings Credit Union (Vancity) has selected NBS’ instant issuance solution, Xpressi™ software, for deployment to their branch network.

“Xpressi instant card issuance solution from NBS Technologies will enable Vancity to be the first financial institution in Canada to instantly issue Chip & PIN cards to its members right at the branch,” says Ramesh Ajitaprasad, General Manager, UbiQ™ Software, NBS Technologies’ software design business unit. “While working closely with Vancity throughout this process, NBS and Vancity decided to integrate the Xpressi software solution with NBS’ own Javelin card printers thereby delivering a complete software and hardware solution to the Vancity branches that is both easy to use/implement and cost effective.”

Xpressi remote and branch issuance software is the NBS software solution enabling financial institutions to issue credit and/or debit (magnetic stripe, contact and contactless) instantly at the branch. Offering flexibility and ease-of-use with the assurance of centralized data security, Xpressi software coupled with Javelin printers achieves the complete instant issuance solution. However, Xpressi software is so flexible and user-friendly that it can be implemented with embossers or thermal desktop printers from any major card printer manufacturer.

“Our challenge was to implement an instant issuance solution that would integrate with our existing banking system as well as keep our current process in the issuance of debit cards at our branches,” said Catherine Boivie, Senior Vice President IT at Vancity and CEO of Inventure Solutions. “After conducting a thorough vendor comparison, our search led us to the Xpressi solution from NBS Technologies.”

NBS Technologies Inc. is a leading provider of hardware and software solutions for card personalization, secure ID, EMV® compliance/migration, smart card and semiconductor equipment solutions for financial institutions, governments, and corporations worldwide, and boasts extensive experience in the instant financial card issuance marketplace.
