Sharjah, UAE, April 14, 2013:    OMA Emirates, a provider of cutting edge technology for the payment industry has announced an end-to-end service which provides banks an in-premise team to manage centralized issuance of EMV cards. The new service includes the supply and maintenance of cards, personalization system, manpower and ongoing developments with no ownership costs that will have a positive impact on cost efficiency and smoother card production for banks.   

OMA Emirates’ team of in-premise specialists will support daily operations as well as guide the banks towards planning for future requirements. Complying with strict EMV security and design standards, the new service is tailor-made to enable banks to have full control of the card issuance operations.

OMA Emirates along with world class vendor partners and our proficiency in developing specialized Centralized Issuance  Software (CIS) is capable of meeting the industry’s specific requirements. Our team is geared to meet the changing requirements and equipped to tackle total smart card production.” said, Niranj Sangal, Group CEO, OMA Emirates – Solution Gulf.

Developed in-house, the company’s NANOPERSO personalization solution which supports batch printing and encoding will optimize the bank’s card production process. Simultaneously the new system enables card embossing, indenting, encoding labels, card mailing and smart chips for both contact and contactless cards.
