Incorporating G+D Mobile Security's EMV contactless chip technology along with their personalization and fullfilment centers around the world, the G+D Mobile Security and HIT partnership will combine patented technology and global manufacturing excellence to produce metal cards from HIT's manufacturing facility in Ohio (USA). With these cards, financial institutions can offer affluent and high net-worth customers an exclusive "top-of-wallet" payment experience.
The portfolio includes cards with different weights and a full range of design options, such as standard front and back offset printing, mechanical engraving, colored powder coating and 3D effects. Always revealing a stainless steel edge, the metal cards from HIT and G+D Mobile Security are unmistakenly rigid and heavy, proven by a clear sound of metal when dropped on a table. The cards still enable contactless payment on both sides, providing a seamless user experience at the point of sale.
"The market for metal cards is growing strongly worldwide. Consumers want to stand out and are even willing to change banks to do so," says Gabrielle Bugat, Head of Division for Financial Solutions at G+D Mobile Security. "By partnering with HIT, we can meet the innovation and design needs of this particular target group across the globe."
"G+D Mobile Security has always stood for the highest security and quality standards in the financial industry and with its solutions creates trust in mobile payment," says Cristian Calandria, founder of HIT. "This makes the company the perfect strategic partner for us. We have no doubt that this natural synergy will strengthen both companies and that the result will be highly satisfied customers."
