GBTI Chooses CSFi’s CardWizard® Real-time Interface

gbti_logoGeorgetown, Guyana: The Guyana Bank for Trade & Industry Ltd. (GBTI) has a rich and successful history of over 170 years that began with the establishment of the first commercial bank in British Guiana. A key driver of that success has been consistency in deployment of banking solutions aligned with customer lifestyles and business needs

Whether issuing a new card or replacing a lost or stolen card, Instant Card Issuance represents a truly differentiating and customer friendly innovation enabling both new and existing customers to walk into a branch and within minutes receive a fully activated payment card.

Currently, using an outsourced card provider to generate new cards, GBTI has licensed CSFi’s real-time interface to the Entrust Datacard CardWizard instant card issuance system. Once deployed, the new configuration will allow GBTI to issue new EMV cards instantly and then interface directly to SWITCHWARE® to instantly activate the cards for use.
