Datacard(R) Maxsys(TM) Card Issuance System Makes North American Debut At Cardtech/Securtech 2002
New high-throughput system personalizes up to 3,000 cards per hour
New Orleans, LA - April 23, 2002 - Datacard Group unveiled a new high-speed card issuance system at the CardTech/SecurTech 2002 Conference in New Orleans today. The new Datacard(R) Maxsys(TM) Card Issuance System is designed to meet emerging and next-generation needs of financial institutions, service bureaus and other high-volume card issuers.
The Maxsys(TM) system will personalize up to 3,000 cards per hour and offer a full range of modular capabilities, including smart card personalization, embossing, indent printing, topping, magnetic stripe encoding, thermal graphics printing and laser engraving.
"The Maxsys system sets an entirely new standard for high-volume card issuance," said Kent Shields, senior vice president and general manager of Datacard's hardware division. "Card issuers want to maximize throughput in their operations and reduce their cost-per-card. The Maxsys system will deliver strong, measurable results on both counts."
"The system also will help card issuers capitalize on high-potential market opportunities that are evolving right now around the world," Shields said. "For example, multi-application smart cards offer tremendous potential in terms of revenue generation, application delivery and customer loyalty. The Maxsys system offers the power and speed required for a successful smart card program."
The modular design of the Maxsys system allows customers to choose features and functionality based on immediate requirements. Datacard will continually enhance the Maxsys system by developing additional personalization capabilities over time. As card programs grow, Maxsys system customers can add new features, integrate new modules and increase system performance. "The Maxsys system provides our customers with
real, lasting investment protection," Shields said. "Customers can buy what they want now, then upgrade as they see fit."
Shields said the new system, available for shipment this fall, complements Datacard's industry-leading portfolio of card personalization systems. "Broad selection ensures that our customers can get precisely the features, speed and power they need for their card programs," Shields said.
Datacard Group provides software, systems and professional services needed to build profitable card programs. The company's solutions portfolio also includes a complete line of secure digital identity systems and card personalization systems. Datacard Group is privately held and based in Minnetonka, Minn.
