Antelop reinvents digital cards and mobile issuance with a unified solution for banks and card issuing processors

Banks and card issuing processors can now use a single software development kit to add all the very latest digital card features to their mobile banking app, making it possible for even the smallest bank to quickly and easily provide its clients with an instant, mobile-first experience that meets the needs of today’s increasingly digital consumer. 

Digital cards and instant issuance are the new normal 

“Customers now expect digital-first experiences and banks need to offer an instant and mobile-first banking experience. This is the new normal and now a market standard.” says Antelop’s CEO Nicolas Bruley. 

“Digital cards address this change in consumer behavior and enable instant card issuing on the consumer’s mobile device. They can exist as a standalone offering or as a complement to an existing physical card. In addition, issuing fully digital cards cuts costs and reduces a bank’s carbon footprint as plastic is no longer required.” 

Reducing complexity for banks and card issuers 

With the different innovations introduced by the card networks (Mastercard MDES, Visa VTS, etc.), banks now face multiple tokenization systems. In order to implement digital cards, issuers often struggle with a multiplicity of backend integrations, creating greater complexity, and longer timelines for project implementation. 

Digital cards require embedded integrations into the mobile banking applications. Today, customers demand that all banking activities happen in one app: card enrollment, payment, card management, authentication, etc. To offer digital cards that add real value to their clients, banks need a unified service directly integrated into their mobile applications. Programs such as Mastercard’s recently launched Digital First enables banks to implement full digital card issuance with partners such as Antelop.

The only prerequisite for deploying the Antelop One Digital Card is for a bank or card issuing processor to already be compatible with tokenization.
