Complete data and process management

Data Preparation and Process software securely collects data from multiple sources in a variety of formats, then merges the data and readies it for the card personalization process. The software interfaces directly with cryptographic devices and certificate authorities to generate encrypted data for smart card personalization.

Automated operation

Operation is fast, secure and fully automated. The software links a unique record number in the audit file with the personalization data. After personalization, operators can check the database to ensure information has been added to the card correctly.

Modular design

Modular flexibility allows issuers to configure the software for specific program requirements, quickly and easily. New modules can be added easily as programs change, ensuring investment protection and maintaining continuity.

Customizable modules

Software development kits (SDKs) available from Datacard Group allow developers to build and write a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) for customizing any of the modules.

Broad compatibility

Data Preparation and Process software is compatible with all Datacard® high-volume and desktop card and passport issuance systems. It also supports other brands of equipment.
