Sponsored by Businesswire

CPI Card Group Inc. (OTCQX: PMTS, TSX: PMTS) (“CPI” or the “Company”), a payment technology company and leading provider of credit, debit and prepaid solutions, today announced an integration with Sharetec System, a leading core solutions provider for credit unions. Through the collaboration, CPI’s Card@Once solution is integrated with Sharetec’s core software platform, allowing its credit union clients to instantly issue and print EMV® compliant and dual interface capable payment cards to branch members through Sharetec’s core system.

“The ability for members to quickly obtain a personalized, contactless capable card in-hand is a valuable convenience for credit unions to offer – and reflects our commitment to helping clients continuously enhance their member experience,” said Matt Isger, Regional Director for Sharetec System.

Through the new core integration, the credit unions served by Sharetec can now take advantage of an end-to-end, cost-effective print solution – with dual interface card personalization capability – that gives them greater versatility and speed in responding to customers’ needs, whether it’s for a new account or card replacement. Integrating Card@Once streamlines the experience for branch staff as well, eliminating the need for dual entry.

“Our collaboration affords advantages for branch staff and members alike. The combined ease-of-use, speed and convenience elevate the branch experience, punctuated by cardholders getting to leave with a dual interface card in their wallet,” said Rob Dixon, Director, Product and Business Development at CPI Card Group. “We look forward to working more with Sharetec as they equip clients with an integrated instant issuance solution that provides a competitive edge.”
