The TRISM System® is used by many financial institutions to instantly produce one or all of the following cards:

  • ATM Cards
  • Visa and MasterCard Branded Debit Cards
  • Visa and MasterCard Credit Cards
  • Customer Selected PIN

What makes this possible is the evolution of card production equipment and a secure data handling system. Technology and the endorsement of Visa and MasterCard have led to the development of the TRISM Instant Issue Solution.

Instant Issue System Components - Card Embosser and Application Software

TRISM Instant Issuance


May 10, 1999-MasterCard International's new instant issuance program enables issuers to quickly, locally, and economically provide new and replacement cards that customers can immediately activate and use. The program features the Datacardâ 150i system, and highly secure device that embosses and encodes cards according to MasterCard standards in a fast, single-pass operation.

MasterCard created and implemented the instant issuance program because it offers numerous benefits for both card issuers and consumers. "From the card issuer's perspective, instant issuance generates immediate revenue because consumers can start using their card right away. Additionally, by making it even more convenient to get a MasterCard debit card, issuers are encouraging frequent usage," said Jerry Sargent, vice president Debit Product Management at
MasterCard International.

Instant issuance also reduces the costs associated with centralized card issuance, such as postage, handling and the production of envelopes and card carriers.

For consumers, instant issuance eliminated the waiting period for a new or replacement card to arrive in the mail. "Today's consumer wants fast, convenient service from their bank and the instant issuance program allows MasterCard issuers to more quickly respond to their customers' growing demand for debit programs," Sargent said.
