DataPrep Plus allows issuers to control the generation, management and storage of EMV data. DataPrep Plus easily interfaces with any card management or personalisation system and has minimal impact on legacy systems. The solution receives embossing requests from a customerâs card management system, generates the required EMV data, includes the EMV data in the embossing files and reformats them for a customerâs smart card personalisation system. Powered by GlobalPlatform scripts, DataPrep Plus offers a high degree of flexibility.
âDataPrep Plus provides issuers with a simple means to begin issuance of EMV payment cardsâ said Mark Vipond, chief operating officer, ACI Worldwide. âWith support for key features like the chip database, compliance with GlobalPlatform scripting and additional functional upgrade options, the issuer can use the same solution to meet future chip requirements.â
