Financial institutions are facing more pressure than ever to ensure fast, frictionless customer experiences. This includes putting credit and debit cards in customers’ hands on time, every time.

To meet customer expectations and compete with digital banks, banks and credit unions are turning to on-demand manufacturing to diversify their card production sources, improve customer satisfaction, and maximize revenue opportunities.

Traditional, Single-Sourced Card Production: A Market Miss

In an increasingly competitive financial landscape, banks must be more nimble and flexible than ever. The ability to get card products in market and in customers’ hands quickly is an absolute must. By embracing multiple card personalization suppliers, banks can insulate their business and deliver meaningful results for customers and your bottom line:

  • Getting to market faster means more transaction revenue sooner.
  • Differentiate by delivering cards quickly, creating a better customer experience.
  • Execute on quick-turn-around priorities to minimize a customer problem or deliver a big win – both drive customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Without an on-demand production resource, banks and credit unions are more vulnerable to supply chain disruptions that can lead to delays in card issuance, creating a bad experience for customers.

The Benefits of an On-Demand Production Source

Having an on-demand production source provides banks and credit unions with numerous benefits that contribute to long-term success and stability. On-demand production is the only production option that can be set up with no up-front material cost and no need to purchase inventory in advance. There are several other key advantages of this model:

  1. Be Ready for a Surge in Demand No matter what the cause, an unexpected spike in demand for cards can throw your entire operation into a tailspin if you’re not already enabled with an on-demand production source. This source can handle any type of card program and can take on periodic overflow without interruption. It’s a good idea to keep your on-demand provider active by running segments of your card volume here on an ongoing basis. A just-in-time production solution can accommodate any volume and can adjust as needs change. Once set up, issuers that work with a true digital on-demand production provider can turn a program on in less than 24 hours when needed.
  1. Increased Flexibility By partnering with flexible production sources, banks and credit unions can quickly scale production up or down as needed and respond to shifts in the market or new customer preferences. This flexibility allows banks to remain agile and competitive in the face of an ever-evolving financial landscape. As the banking industry continues to evolve, banks must prioritize risk management and customer satisfaction.
