Instant issuance of bank cards in the indian ocean islands

Instant issuance of bank cards in the Seychelles with the Zenius printer.

The challenge : to offer an instant in-branch card issuance service

Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB) in the Seychelles was looking for a solution in order to offer its customers personal debit cards issued directly within its branches.

The card would have to be produced in Mauritius and customized for the Seychelles with the cardholder’s name. The solution would have to offer banks more autonomy and responsiveness, while ensuring complete data security.

The solution : the Zenius printer

The request went out to International Card Processing Services (ICPS) based in Mauritius. Having discovered Evolis solutions at a trade show, ICPS immediately turned to the French manufacturer and its Zenius card printer model.

With the support of Evolis’s partner Unicorn MSJ, ICPS deployed a complete solution not only at MCP but at three other financial institutions across 6 countries. These different projects represent some 40 Zenius printers.

The result : increased flexibility and security

Thanks to an online platform, branch staff can order payment cards, create customer profiles, activate cards and instantly generate them using the Zenius printer. Key element of the project : guaranteed data security, a requirement that all Evolis systems satisfy in every respect.

In addition, Evolis systems are easy to integrate with third-party IT systems and their reliability is such that the partnership between ICPS and Evolis has led to ICPS offering these solutions to all its clients across the Indian Ocean and in Africa.

The Evolis printers meet our security requirements and the available APIs have enabled simplified integration.
