June 9, 2014

Consumer demand for improved service and positive interactions at the branch prompts financial institutions to invest in instant issuance technology

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EFT Source, Inc. revealed today that its patented instant issuance solution, Card@Once, has issued more than 524,000 cards to consumers within one year. The company is a provider of turnkey card programs and personalization services for ATM and debit cards for financial institutions.

High levels of customer engagement and positive experiences at the branch are more important today than ever. Consumers continue to value face-to-face interactions, especially when it comes to financial products. In fact, studies indicate that the majority of accounts are still opened at the branch versus online. In response, financial institutions are quickly realizing a need to issue cards on site within the branch environment to provide better service and positive interactions.

EFT Source’s instant issuance solution, Card@Once, has proven to be effective. Customers enter the branch and request a card. The data is securely transferred from the branch location to EFT Source, where it is immediately processed and converted into an encrypted print file that is returned to the branch electronically. Card@Once encodes the data and prints the card allowing the customer to walk away with a ready-to-use, permanent debit card.

“As consumers increasingly expect superior service from their financial institutions, instant issuance has become a necessity,” said Bill Dinker, president of EFT Source. “Institutions know this, too. Within a single year, we grew our customer base by more than 200 percent, indicating a strong demand for our patented Card@Once product. This innovative approach to instant issuance is proven to help increase customer satisfaction and card usage while simultaneously reducing overall issuance costs.”
