Cardtek Group's Palmaris Software Drives Everlink's Instant Card Issuance Solution To An Innovative 2012

DES PLAINES, Illinois, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Everlink Payment Services Inc., a leading Canadian provider of comprehensive, innovative and integrated payment solutions & services, experienced a strong year with regards to their award-winning - and Cardtek Group powered - Instant Card Issuance (ICI) solution. In 2012 they became the first in North America to successfully add a payment application to a certified EMV chip card, post-issuance, and to provide financial institutions with the ability to instantly issue fully personalized Interac Flashâ„¢ debit cards in-branch.

Powered by Cardtek Group's Palmaris Instant Issuance software, ICI was introduced in April 2011 to assist financial institutions with the issuance of EMV Chip, PIN and now contactless debit cards. Since that time, Everlink and Cardtek Group have worked diligently to enhance the capabilities of the platform used for in-branch issuance of EMV cards.

"Cardtek Group has been a great partner and continues to work with us to bring new, Canadian specific, EMV enhancements to the Palmaris platform," says David Hooper, Vice President of Product Management at Everlink. "For example, we have just completed certifying the system to produce dual interface contactless Interac Flash cards, which means that our credit union and bank clients can instantly issue contactless enabled EMV Chip in their branches."

Cardtek Group's Palmaris Instant Issuance Platform is the most robust and cost effective card issuance software available in North America today. With more than ten years of international experience, Cardtek Group provides financial institutions with the ability to be card and personalization equipment (printer) independent - Everlink currently deploys two different makes of card printer / encoders and uses cards from multiple card bureaus.  This is a differentiator for the Palmaris system and means that it is the most flexible instant issuance solution available.

"Cardtek Group is proud to be able to support Everlink, the clear leader in technology innovation in the Canadian Financial industry", says Gregg Smith, Cardtek Group NA Sales and Marketing Manager.
