MUNICH, November 16, 2015

Matica Technologies AG (A0JELZ), a worldwide leading vendor for financial and secure ID card issuance systems announced the launch of its S3400 and S3500 instant issuance line of products, designed for financial institutions and retail organizations, to support the growing global market of instant issuance of debit and credit cards.

Manufactured in-house in Matica’s new production plant in Turate, Italy, the new line of products has undergone extensive research and development to deliver a versatile and scalable desktop solution. Matica’s desktop card personalization products embed high quality printing and embossing personalization technologies with the ability to encode smart cards – contact and contactless – and comply with EMV and all other major regulations.

The printers are suitable to fit the secure issuance of financial cards at branch level, complying with Visa® and Mastercard® security requirements and meeting PCI-DSS data security standards.

Matica S3400 and S3500 help financial institutions to deliver to their clients a premium service enhancing their customer experience and generating an extra sense of care; the card is issued into customers’ hands and activated immediately, ready to be used.

“The technology and design invested into Matica products carefully respond to the financial industry’s evolving requirements and this is evident in the new S3400 and S3500 instant issuance line. It offers such an advanced combination of core technologies that it can cater to different customers’ needs,” said Ferdinando Filippone, Director Product Marketing Systems, Matica Technologies.

“For instance, the S3400 comes with two card feeders to meet the versatile instant issuance solutions for the large range of loyalty and financial market applications, while the S3500 is the powerful product with seven hoppers, on-board PC and many other key features for the most demanding applications of financial credit and debit cards.

“Matica predicts that the card issuance market will be looking for adaptable and cost-effective solutions – and we are definitely setting the pace for in-branch instant issuance,” added Ferdinando Filippone.

“Every research report about our industry emphasizes continued growth in secure card issuance and that debit and credit cards remain the preferred non-cash payment tool in the world. But the company that secures global presence will have listened – and responded – to customers’ evolving needs and that’s what sets Matica apart from much of the competition,” said Sandro Camilleri, CEO of Matica Technologies AG.

Matica S3500 is available now through Matica´s partner network. S3400 will be available in the first quarter of 2016.
