CPI Card Group and Commercial Business Systems Collaborate on Core Integration

CPI
Card Group (Nasdaq: PMTS, TSX: PMTS) (“CPI”), a global leader in
financial and EMV® chip card production and related services, today
announced a collaboration with Commercial Business Systems (CBS), a
provider of premium software and IT services for credit unions, to
integrate CBS’ CAMS-ii credit union accounting and management system and
CPI’s Card@Once
solution to streamline instant issuance of EMV®-enabled cards.

The integrated instant issuance offering from CPI and CBS equips credit
unions with an end-to-end print and activation solution allowing
branches to respond immediately to members for new and replacement
cards. CAMS-ii software relieves credit unions of the time-consuming,
resource-heavy responsibilities of information management, while
Card@Once adds simple, cost-effective instant issuance to a credit
union’s capabilities. A core integration between the solutions allows
credit unions to activate cards during printing to the Card@Once printer
from their CAMS-ii user interface, eliminating the need for dual entry.

“The integration will allow branches to issue fully activated EMV chip
cards in the span of a short visit,” said Lane Dubin, SVP and General
Manager, Prepaid and Instant Issuance for CPI. “We’re thrilled to work
with CBS to offer their customers a competitive solution that expedites
the delivery of debit and credit cards.”

“Our primary focus has always been on alleviating the burdens of
information management and ensuring that our credit union clients are
positioned for success,” said Ken Hunt, VP for CBS. “Integrating our
software with Card@Once is a natural fit, helping our customers benefit
from leading-edge instant issuance technology as they focus on driving
their growth.”

The core integration of CBS’ CAMS-ii credit union management software
and CPI’s Card@Once instant issuance solution will be available to all
clients using the CAMS-ii software. Learn more at www.camsbycbs.com.
