Datacard Group Expands Functionality of Inline Card Delivery System

PARIS--(CCNMatthews - Nov 15, 2005) -

New dual page form personalization capability and high-speed folder option enhance production of highly personalized card mailings and promotions

Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, introduced two new options for the innovative Datacard® MXD™ card delivery system today at CARTES 2005. The high-speed folder option significantly increases the system's throughput. The dual page personalization option enables card issuers to produce two highly personalized forms inline.

"These new options reflect our commitment to continuously enhance the MXD system to help our customers maximize marketing opportunities while maintaining the superior levels of security and integrity they have come to expect," said Neil Crocker, vice president of marketing for Datacard Group.

The MXD system is specifically engineered to integrate with the Datacard® Maxsys™ card issuance system, creating the fastest inline card delivery solution available today. The high-speed folder option increases the system's throughput from up to 2,000 forms per hour to speeds up to 3,000 forms per hour.

The dual page forms capability offers unprecedented flexibility by allowing customized text to be printed on a second sheet of paper, in addition to the card carrier. Card issuers can personalize terms and conditions and other unique messages inline on both sides of each sheet. This reduces the need to inventory pre-printed forms and expands the opportunity for targeted marketing. In addition to comprehensive verification features in the Maxsys system, bar codes printed on both sheets help maintain superior levels of card and form integrity.

"The system's modular design makes these latest enhancements available for systems already in the field as well as for all new systems, reflecting our commitment to protecting our customers' investment and helping them to ultimately improve their profitability," said Crocker.

Datacard Group offers the world's best-selling secure ID and card personalization solutions. The company's portfolio includes systems for high-volume card issuance, card delivery, secure ID issuance and passport production, plus extensive service and supply offerings.
