Saudi Bank, Al Bilad, selects Evolis Card Printers to personalize its payment cards
Evolis, France, 16 May 2012. Evolis, the European leader in card personalization systems, has been selected by Gemalto, a global leader in digital security, as a key component of its offering for instant card issuance in Saudi Arabia.
As part of its adoption of the EMV standards, Bank Al Bilad, a major financial institution in Saudi Arabia, has decided to use Evolis card printers to deliver its debit cards with graphic personalization and data encoding. Part of the bank’s new instant issuance environment, these printers are seamlessly interfaced with the Dexxis Instant Issuance solution from Gemalto.
For Bank Al Bilad, the Evolis Dualys solution has multifarious benefits. The card personalization process is carried out in a snap, with services and features that match the requirements of customers that request their card at any branch. Consequently, the overall card activation rate has recorded a significant increase, demonstrating a positive impact on the bottom line.
This new infrastructure has helped in deploying a smart card delivery environment that can boast of top performances and modern features while safeguarding against theft, loss or other issues experienced with the traditional centralized card personalization model. The solution has been deployed in 100 branches of Bank Al Bilad, instantly issuing around 2,000 cards per day. This project has successfully rolled out by El Ajou Group, Evolis’ local partner and a value added provider of Office Automation Equipment and Computer Technologies.
