Vietnam’s Asia Commercial Bank (ACB), which provides a full range of banking and related services including loans, insurance, and foreign exchange (FX) for corporate and consumer clients, has chosen Collis and CTS-Caliber, Collis’ value added reseller, to provide consultancy services and Collis Test Tool.
CTS-Caliber has been providing smartcard issuance solutions and Collis Test Tool to ACB helping it to achieve Visa and MasterCard certification.
Bui Tan Tai, vice president, ACB, Vietnam, said: “With the EMV Personalisation Validation Tool (EMV PVT) via CTS-Caliber from Collis, we can use the Collis EMV PVT for ensuring the quality of our personalised EMV cards. We are happy to test our new EMV cards issuance with the user-friendly Collis EMV PVT before our EMV cards are issued to reduce the risk of malfunctioning cards. In this way, we can speed up the development of the Visa and MasterCard branded smartcards personalisation and shorten time-to-market in Vietnam.”
