Komercni banka, part of the Societe Generale Group and one of the leading banks in the Czech republic, is issuing mass volumes of Gemplus EMV multi-application cards.

As one of the first banks in Central & Eastern Europe (CEE), Komercni Banka is paving the way of issuing both EMV Maestro and VISA cards. The project between Komercni Banka and Gemplus is an outcome of a two years cooperation in other smart card projects, such as Guaranteed Payment with major retail chains & channel authentication, whilst modelling and designing an EMV migration plan to reflect the long term business plans, market opportunities and customer expectations of Komercni banka. Gemplus has provided smart cards, consulting services, a turnkey personalisation solution (GemSense) and a set of applications ranging from Micro-Payments to Authentication and Loyalty. From the beginning, the new cards support not only the EMV payment functions, but are also designed and issued as multifunctional cards to support different kinds of applications. Depending on the needs of specific customer groups of Komercni Banka, individual applications with customer-specific functions can be activated any time after the card is issued to the customer.
