Oberthur Technologies, a France-based provider of security and identification based on smart card technology, has accredited Collis with the role of being the preferred solution provider for EMV card personalisation validation software.
The aim is to standardise a common EMV card personalisation validation software across Oberthur’s personalisation network. Collis EMV personalisation validation tool (PVT) and Collis personalisation validation for production are examples of tools that will be implemented across Oberthur’s production facilities.
Collis EMV PVT can test all interfaces of a card-under-test (magnetic stripe, embossing, printing, contact chip, contactless chip, NFC). These tools also offer full support for VISA, MasterCard, JCB, American Express, as well as support for domestic brands such as GIE CB.
Berend van Geffen, vice president of products division at Collis, said: “Personalisation validation has always been a key focus within Collis. Through our global customers and consulting projects we are always aware of the challenges faced when issuing error-free cards. We work with Visa, MasterCard, JCB and many domestic brands intensively. However our vision and ambition regarding Personalisation Validation goes beyond this, which is visible in our tools. We feel privileged to work with Oberthur in helping them continue their excellent global reputation. Collis is committed to deliver the best-in-class test tools, now and in the future!”
