NBS Technologies Inc., 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, today announced that Ramesh Ajitaprasad, General Manager of NBS’ Software Group, will be presenting “Payment Card Personalization in the Retail Environment” at this year’s Cartes Asia - Cards & Payments Seminar program in Hong Kong.
Mr. Ajitaprasad will outline the challenges that retailers face in the marketplace as it pertains to chip card utilization as well as converging technologies within the retail sector. Speaking about the value of instant card issuance within the retail sector, Mr. Ajitaprasad will address various advantages as well as the solutions available to retailers. Using its patented software technology, Xpressi™ and state-of-the-art hardware offerings, the NBS Software Group offers companies, retailers and financial institutions the ability to issue both magnetic stripe and chip encoded chip cards to their customers.
Xpressi makes EMV / chip card branch instant issuance a cost effective reality and easy to implement. Supporting multiple EMV / chip card configurations and chip types with one system, this solution gives an issuer the flexibility to keep their future expansion and operation options open for change while not getting locked in to any one card or printer supplier. Xpressi supports web, thin client and branch platform integrated deployments or a combination as needed. In addition, it provides many optional functions, so retailers can combine and select from flat print and/or embossing solutions.
“NBS is confident that an economical solution such as Xpressi along with NBS’ full line of card printer hardware offers retailers around the globe a solid, field-tested, instant card issuance solution that has the capability to meet and exceed their needs. Xpressi can encode both magnetic stripe and/or EMV cards giving retailers extreme flexibility to meet the needs of their marketplace,” says Mr. Ajitaprasad.
Mr. Ajitaprasad will also be available to demonstrate the Xpressi software solution on the booth of NBS’ premier dealer Silone – booth # 3 B 32.
