NBS Technologies has developed personalization scripts for Tyfone’s SideTap microSD memory cards to be integrated with EMV UbiQPersoMaster personalization software, enabling mobile contactless payment for NFC applications.
According to NBS, the new integration will allow financial institutions and consumers to be able to personalize their data at the distribution point on their Tyfone SideTap memory card, providing immediate access to NFC contactless payments.
“Now we can extend personalization to Tyfone SideTap cards using the memory card interface,” says Todd Nuzum, Tyfone’s VP of Technology. “This allows for higher throughput with a smaller footprint and for targeted content preloading.”
“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,” comments 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.”
