Datacard Group, Minnetonka, Minn., has successfully implemented a fully-integrated EMV smart card solution for the Industrial Commercial Bank of China (ICBC). “ICBC is the first bank in China to progress to a full EMV program,” said Angus McDougall, regional vice president, Asia Pacific, for Datacard Group. “As a long-time Datacard Group customer, ICBC was confident in our ability to support the full scope of their implementation.”

The smart card issuance and management software suite enables card issuers to introduce smart cards into their existing production environments for pilot and rollout program phases.
