Matica Technologies Launches K3 Kiosk Card Printer

Matica® K3 brings high-quality proven technology derived from Matica embossers to the heart of a self-service kiosk

MUNICH, July 30, 2015

Matica Technologies AG (A0JELZ) announces an addition to its instant issuance product portfolio. The Matica® K3 Kiosk Card Printer is a new module ready to be integrated into a wide range of self-service kiosks for instant card issuance, allowing financial institutions and retailers to provide embossed credit and debit cards or loyalty and membership cards.

Matica’s K3 is a new issuance module specifically designed for kiosk integration to enable the convenience of issuing cards instantly in branches or in stores, so the card printer puts a ready-to-use card directly in the hands of a customer.

The module complies with Visa® and MasterCard® instant issuance security requirements and helps financial institutions to improve the usage and activation rates of their payment cards. When a card can be issued the moment a card application has been received and processed, it creates an extra sense of value for the card user. This immediacy can further enhance the user´s experience and loyalty when one also considers its aesthetics including embossed personalization and tactile feel of the card.

“Matica Technologies is a worldwide leading vendor for financial and secure ID card issuance systems“, says Sandro Camilleri, CEO of Matica Technologies AG. “Convenience plays a significant role in every area of our modern lives, from supermarket checkouts to airline check-in kiosks. Self-service kiosks offer a substantial benefit to business, and more importantly to their customers. The K3 Kiosk Card Printer offers multiple personalization options for various applications enhancing a positive customer experience and helping to generate loyalty.”

HIGH QUALITY BASED ON PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

The K3 Kiosk Card Printer is manufactured with reliable, heavy-duty components derived from Matica industrial systems. Offering great flexibility, the module is a perfect fit and ready to be integrated in any kiosk environment. Combined with Matica´s long-life consumables, the card printer is the perfect choice for card issuance integrators and solution providers.

“Matica Technologies leverages its expertise in developing card personalization equipment for kiosk integrators and solution providers of automatic teller machines (ATM) and virtual teller machines (VTM)”, says Davide Salvarani, Instant Issuance Product Manager, Matica Technologies AG.

“These days, self-service kiosks make our lives easier and they are installed in an incredible amount of places. The K3 Kiosk Card Printer is specially targeted at integrators that need different card personalisation solutions, easy to operate and almost maintenance-free thanks to the metal part components and construction architecture.  Matica launches with K3 a reliable easy-to-integrate system to the growing and demanding market of self-service operated kiosks. This is the first of a series of kiosk application products.”
