CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
Arroweye Solutions, a leading payments technology firm, has received Card Quality Management (CQM) certification from MasterCard. The international certification, valid for two years, demonstrates the world-class quality of both Arroweye products and production facilities and shows the comprehensive quality of the entire Arroweye system.
MasterCard’s CQM quality assurance certification is essential to the smart chip migration process, as cards transition from magnetic stripes to EMV. Arroweye’s certification demonstrates the company’s reliable card products and global interoperability through product testing.
“Arroweye is the only single source digital on-demand platform to achieve the CQM rating and meet the MasterCard quality standards,” said Bob McCormick, Arroweye vice president of operations. “Maintaining this standard ensures that our customers and their cardholders use and keep the highest quality card in their wallets for use across the globe.”
The certification program ensures the smooth introduction of smart cards by testing a variety of card and hardware features, including interoperability, reliability, production stability, and more. Cards that are produced via CQM programs are in compliance with EMV and M/Chip specifications and are less likely to require replacements due to physical weaknesses in the chips or cards.
“This certification means that our clients are gaining not only the benefits that on-demand provides but can rest assured their programs are being produced with the highest quality standards in the industry,” McCormick added.
