Datacard Group, Barnes International to verify smart cards in an automated way

Monday 18 November 2013 09:45 CET | News

US-based ID and card personalisation services company Datacard Group has entered an agreement with Barnes International, a chip card test tools and magnetic stripe analysers company, to integrate the Barnes smart card verification technology into the Datacard MX Series Quality Assurance module.

The Datacard QA module systematically verifies both optical and electronic elements of each card that passes through the MX Series Platform to confirm accurate card personalization. By integrating the Barnes smart card verification technology into the QA module, financial organizations and commercial bureaus will now verify that smart cards which are also run through the module are EMV compliant and conform to payment system operator’s requirements. Before this integration, issuers could use a standalone offline Barnes CPT machine in which they could manually check each smart card to ensure it was EMV compliant.

The Datacard QA module is part of Datacard Group’s complete MX Series Platform for central card issuance, which offers complete modulatory. Customers that currently own an MX Series Platform and want to add in the QA module to their inline solution can do that.

In recent news, Datacard Group has entered a definitive agreement with Pan-African financial institution Ecobank.
