Payne Security, a leading supplier of brand protection, document authentication and personal ID solutions, announces that West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (Metro) has signed a contract with Payne Security to personalise and issue English National Concessionary Travel (ENCTS) smart cards for approximately 150,000 concession holders across the region over the next three years.
Under the terms of the contract, Payne Security receives data twice daily from Metro's card management system, processing it immediately into ITSO-compliant, personalised smart cards. All cards are despatched direct to concession holders' home addresses either the same or the following day. As well as 150,000 ENCTS cards for senior and disabled concession holders, Metro also expects to issue smart cards to 80,000 school children during the life of the three year contract.
Metro chose Payne Security on the strength of its high-quality, durable card, which it subjected to some rigorous physical testing. Personalisation by bulk digital methods ensures the card-holder's details are encapsulated and protected within the card construction.
"Quite simply, Payne Security offered us the best quality card and service at the best value," said John Keady, Metro's Fares & Pricing Systems Manager.
Payne Security's card manufacturing and digital print capability combines the benefits of secure personalised ID cards together with contact chip, contactless smart card technology and proximity inlays. This personalisation service provides cards to the highest quality with all the print features 'locked' into the core of the card, ensuring durability and security. Payne Security offers short-run personalised smart cards for the security, access control and card application industry, as well as card encoding and fulfilment options.
Payne Security is one of the world's leading providers of brand protection, document authentication and personal ID solutions, with a large range of products designed to beat counterfeiters and prove personal identity.
