Issuance-as-a-service: G+D launches industry-first modular platform for modern payment card issuance solutions​

Munich, 3 June 2024 – The modern payment card issuance platform Convego Service Market bundles G+D’s Convego services to simplify their use for banks and financial service providers, making it easier to access and operate intelligent solutions for a phygital customer experience that perfectly combines physical and digital offerings. After onboarding once, the unified platform allows issuers to access all relevant apps or APIs.

Giesecke+Devrient (G+D), a global SecurityTech company, offers a comprehensive range of tailored solutions in its Convego® portfolio, designed to meet the needs of customers at every stage of the typical payment card issuance lifecycle. These include Convego Card Credentials for digital-first card issuing, Convego eActivate for frictionless and safe card activation, and other solutions. In 2023, G+D was recognized as one of the “Established Leaders” in Modern Issuance by Juniper Research.

All of these solutions are now also available “as-a-Service” on the new modular platform Convego Service Market, simplifying access to the various products and solutions and making their use more efficient. Among other features, the platform offers a quick overview of all available PayTech services from G+D and how they interact. New services, products, and innovative solutions are available quickly and easily via the platform. Issuers can also use it to access test environments and request support or demos.

Developers have access to a development environment including APIs and a sandbox environment for test, provided by Convego Service Market.
