Sharetec Partners with CPI Card Group to Provide Credit Unions with Exceptional Card Services

LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec System, core technology made simple, announces CPI Card Group Inc. (Nasdaq: PMTS, TSX: PMTS) and Sharetec are collaborating to offer Sharetec Credit Unions the ability to print ATM and debit cards in-house with their Card@Once instant issuance solution.

Card@Once is a secure, plug and play instant issuance solution that uses Software as a Service (SaaS) to extend in-branch print and issue capabilities to credit unions. Branches enjoy the ability to print credit, debit, magnetic stripe, EMV® and dual interface capable cards on-demand in minutes – seamlessly getting secure personalized cards into their members’ hands with minimal wait time.

“The power to issue cards on-demand ensures credit unions can fulfill their member’s needs for immediate card issuance or replacement,” said Rob Dixon, Product Manager, Instant Issuance. “For the credit unions themselves Card@Once is cost-effective and easy to use. We are thrilled to work with Sharetec to extend these benefits to Sharetec credit unions and the customers they serve.”

“We couldn’t be happier about this new relationship with CPI Card Group and what this means for our clients. Now they will have the ability to open new accounts and send the members out the door with debit card in hand. Members will no longer have to wait for cards to arrive in the mail,” comments Matt Isger, Regional Director for Sharetec System.
