Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, announced that Jean-Louis Meyer, senior EMEA payment solutions marketing manager for Datacard Group; and Uwe Jaspers, director of EMEA financial instant issuance sales for Datacard Group, will be speaking at the Next Generation Cards and Payments Conference and Expo in Brussels, Belgium taking place October 11-13, 2011.
The session, titled “Financial Instant Issuance – the Way to Make Your Card Business More Profitable” will be held at the Le Plaza hotel in Brussels at 12.40pm on Thursday, Oct. 13th. In the presentation, Meyer and Jaspers will reveal in detail how card issuers can benefit from instantly issued financial cards and increase their overall profitability. They will also outline the basics of instant card issuance, industry best practices, real-life business cases, as well as a real and proven ROI model.
“Instantly issuing financial cards eliminates the traditional seven to 10 business days it takes for a cardholder to receive their card, and it decreases the cost and fraud risk associated with sending financial cards through the mail,” said Jaspers. “In addition, instant issuance increases activation and usage rates because the cardholder can begin using their card immediately. This also enhances customer service, and increases card sales, activation and usage — which ultimately improves interchange profitability.”
Datacard Group will also be exhibiting at the Next Generation Cards and Payment Conference, stand 8, showcasing their flagship instant issuance software and hardware. The company currently has thousands of financial branches and retail locations utilizing its patented Datacard® CardWizard® instant issuance software and associated desktop systems for in-branch card issuance and personalization.
