As a first time user of in-house loans/ receivable solutions, they particularly were in search of an easy-to-use, comprehensive solution—CoreISSUE application fit the bill suitably. The solution helped the customer to generate contracts, assign loan plans, issue payment options and schedule payment dates, and send invoices. It also offered several benefits including multiple lines of credit, flexible payment schedules and options; and auto debit from customer’s bank accounts.

Besides carving a niche as a card management systems and processing services provider, the company has recently announced the CoreCard processing platform as EMV-enabled, enabling current and future clients to issue chip cards to their cardholders. “We developed our platform to run many different types of programs and EMVready is an essential component on our already feature-rich software platform,” says Leland Strange, CEO, CoreCard.
