We recently released statistics that show how incorporating an Entrust Datacard instant issuance solution into a financial institutions portfolio can produce year-over-year growth in purchase volume and transactions. Today, instant issuance continues to expand into bank and credit union branch locations globally and financial institutions are reaping the benefits - from higher activation rates (100% when instantly issued in branch) and card portfolio profitability, to increased customer satisfaction and net promoter scores. Beyond providing benefits to the consumer who is opening a new account, has lost their payment card or had it stolen, instant issuance also provides opportunities for financial institutions to educate customers on additional services and offerings – from mobile banking to ATM deposits to EMV chip card use. These education opportunities allow the FIs to empower the cardholder, provide cross-sell opportunities and move lower-value in-branch transactions to other channels. All of which provide the bank or credit union with higher customer service scores and additional revenue generating opportunities.
