Bell ID will offer demonstrations of the instant issuance of dual interface MasterCard® PayPass M/Chip cards at CARTES 2008.
The demonstration will include the personalization of PayPass M/Chip cards for Bell ID booth visitors using the Bell ID ANDiS4EMV Card and Application Management System (CAMS). Visitors may keep the test cards and will be encouraged to present it at the Collis booth for card validation testing. The Collis PVT tool is certified for card validation testing by MasterCard and will be used to demonstrate to visitors that the card meets the MasterCard requirements, and is ready for deployment.
The dual interface (contact and contactless) MULTOS step/one cards are supplied by Keycorp and will be personalized with MasterCard’s Integrated Card Application (MICA) dual profile PayPass M/Chip application and associated Proximity Payment System Environment (PPSE) using a Fargo desktop card printer.
Instant issuance of contactless cards enables banks to issue cards to cardholders in real time with the added convenience of high speed transactions and enables cardholders to start using their cards immediately; this allows for savings on distribution costs, improves customer service, and increases revenues for banks.
ANDiS4EMV, Bell ID’s solution for the Financial Market supports both bulk and instant issuance of multi-application EMV cards on MULTOS, GlobalPlatform, EMV Common Personalization (CPS), and proprietary card platforms on a wide range of card printers, including Fargo, DataCard, Evolis, and Dai Nippon.
Wynand Vermeulen, Manager, Financial Services at Bell ID, commented: “Bell ID is committed to delivering cutting edge smart payment technology to our customers, and we are proud to present support for instant issuance of contactless cards at CARTES 2008.”
