Debit cards are pivotal to a bank’s digital payment mix. With minimal credit and regulatory risks involved, they are safe digital payment facilitators that deliver convenient transactions, freedom from debt, and rewards. Banks leverage debit cards for higher customer acquisition, retention, and loyalty while diversifying revenue streams through transaction fees.
In India, the number of debit cards in circulation is projected to witness a steady increase of 84.6 million cards by 2028. The total number of debit cards is anticipated to reach an impressive 1 billion*.
Need for a Modern Debit Card Solution
Banks today need to keep up with growing customer expectations, advanced technology innovation, and regulatory changes. Though legacy debit card systems have served traditional banks so far, they have limited agility and are high on cost. The restrictions impact their ability to accelerate efficiencies, handle major transaction volumes, and accommodate technology upgrades and innovations. These hinder the bank’s capability to go-to-market quicker with debit cards that support instant upgrades and growth.
Investing in a scalable, robust, new-age debit card management solution that accelerates debit card issuance and decreases operational inefficiencies is crucial for banks. But integrating modern debit card management systems into traditional banking infrastructures is no easy feat. Manual data transfers, disparate systems, and limited adaptability can lead to errors and reduced user satisfaction. Integration and migration often involve reliance on multiple vendors which further adds to the confusion and inefficiencies.
Comprehensive, Cloud-agnostic Debit Card Stack
Our modern Debit Card Management System is a robust, scalable, cloud-agnostic solution that eliminates the need for multiple vendors and serves as a comprehensive one-stop shop for all your debit card issuance and operational requirements. By seamlessly integrating with financial institutions, payment gateways, and third-party services, we deliver enhanced security, lightning-fast transactions, and an unbeatable user experience. While end customers can enjoy unified interface, real-time updates, and top-tier security, banks benefit from seamless operations and quick turnaround times.
Key Ancillary System Integrations
Our ability to seamlessly stitch in loyalty programs, personal finance, fraud and risk management, reconciliation, core banking, and KYC modules with the debit card management solution sets us apart from our peers. The add-on integrations are seamless with zero lag, and they enhance the value and functionality in addition to creating a personalized and holistic banking experience for the customer.
