NBS Technologies has announced the development of personalization scripts for Tyfone‘s SideTap NFC microSD device, enabling new and existing NBS customers using the company’s UbiQPersoMaster personalization software to support Tyfone’s NFC solution.
“Our partnership with Tyfone has empowered financial institutions and card service bureaus to personalize payment applications on microSD cards either in a central issuance environment using PersoMaster or in an instant issuance environment using Xpressi”, says Ramesh Ajitaprasad, general manager of NBS’ Software Division. “Either environment offers a safe and secure process that meets the standards of issuers and complies with Visa and MasterCard requirements.”
The solution will also allow consumers to “quickly and conveniently personalize their data, at the distribution point, to their Tyfone SideTap memory card, providing immediate access to contactless payments,” says NBS. “This is good news for retailers as the convenience of instant issuance enables retailers to preload relevant content that provides consumers with pertinent offers leading to increased transactions. The technology will amplify the convenience of contactless payments, and consumers can rest assured, as it fully meets worldwide security requirements for both EMV and MSD contactless specifications.
