BROOKFIELD, Wis. (2/8/12)--Financial technology provider Fiserv has purchased secure ID provider Datacard's new flex-form module, which integrates with the DataCard MXD card delivery system.
Fiserv clients will be able to personalize and attach cards to a larger card-carrier size. It also will work with Fiserv card features designed to get cardholders' attention to increase activation rates and transaction volumes, the company said.
"Companies often think that they only have an 8 ½-ince by 11-inch or A4 carrier size to work with; however, in today's market, it is increasingly important to have more space for effective one-to-one marketing and communications," said Jorge Diaz, Fiserv president of output solutions.
By offering a larger card carrier, organizations can include promotional and educational information, tear-offs, coupons and cross-sell messaging to help drive revenue and decrease expenses, Diaz said. They will also have more room to print disclosures and expanded terms and conditions that are increasingly required by industry and government regulations.
Fiserv said the new module fits in to its overall strategy of providing end-to-end production capabilities to help banks, credit unions and retailers make plastic card programs a success by increasing customer loyalty and transaction rates.
MADISION, Wis. (2/8/12)--CUNA Strategic Services, Inc. (CSS) and Diebold, Incorporated, have extended their long-standing relationship, adding another service to help credit unions serve their members.
The renewed agreement adds mobile banking to the suite of products that range from ATMs to security solutions. CSS and Diebold have worked together since 1984.
"Credit union members appreciate the convenience of mobile banking," said Wes Millar, CSS senior vice president. "Diebold has a legacy of security success that supports these technologies, providing peace of mind to credit unions and their mobile banking users."
"Diebold's mobile banking solution includes unique features that will make financial services more convenient, accessible and secure for credit union members than ever before," said Todd Knepper, Diebold vice president and solutions executive.
Using Diebold's MobiTransact mobile banking platform, credit union members can view balances and transactions, be alerted of transfers or low balances, and transfer funds. It can also enable functionality that protects ATM debit cards by notifying users of any transactions that occur while their card is locked.
Credit unions can also leverage the two-way mobile channel as a marketing tool to inform members of special offers or cross-sell appropriate products.
