FIS, the world’s largest provider of banking and payments technology, announced that it is the recipient of two prestigious industry awards honoring credit and debit card authorization and Everlink, an FIS company that provides electronic transaction switching, ATM and point-of-sale (POS) solutions.
FIS has been awarded the Service Quality Performance Award from Visa(R) in the Issuer Processor — Lowest Assured Transaction Rate category in credit and debit card authorization. The award recognizes FIS as the issuer best able to ensure system availability to respond to authorization requests in a timely manner. Visa developed this award in 1992 to recognize issuers, acquirers and processors that demonstrate consistent, superior operating performance and a continued focus on service quality improvement.
Everlink, a leader in electronic transaction switching, ATM and POS solutions, has received a Silver award from Advanced Card Technologies (ACT) Canada for its Instant Card Issuance solution. The Instant Card Issuance solution provides financial institution branches the ability to quickly deliver a fully branded personalized card on-site in less than two minutes. This innovative technology reduces costs such as activation and postage, allowing the consumer to walk out of the branch with a ready-to-use card.
