Oman-based Alizz Islamic Bank has implemented OMA Emirates-Solution Gulf’s instant card issuance solution across its branches.

The card issuance solution has been designed to improve customer support by facilitating branch offices to instantly issue customer cards and allow them to key in their own PINs for debit and cards and hand them over instantly.

The solution will offer benefits such as a huge reduction in PIN mailer distribution costs, security with personal acceptance by the customer and enhanced level of customer support and satisfaction.

The deployment of the solution will include the supply of its Ingenico devices and usage of its in-house NANOPERSO instant card personalization software solution at all branches.

Additionally, the solution will also integrate data from the bank’s Card Management System (CMS), apply strict EMV security procedures by using the Hardware Security Module (HSM) supplied by OMA Emirates as well as provide quick and safer cards to customers.

The alliance will allow OMA Emirates to focus on highest levels of security standards required by Alizz Islamic Bank.

OMA Emirates – Solution Gulf Group CEO Niranj Sangal said: “The Instant Card Issuance solution being provided to alizz islamic bank is an indication of our capability to deploy a complete solution by providing our Ingenico PIN devices, EMV software solutions that are developed in-house, and the ability to offer strong after sales service.”

Alizz Islamic Bank head of infrastructure & IT operations Jamal Al Khusaibi said: “Speed, data security, safe distribution is important for costumers, and we also look forward to the impact it will have on our profitability by eliminating pre-printing of cards before personalization, non-existent PIN mailer distribution and flexibility of card stock inventory.”
