Card Personalisation and Issuance: SPPS

Smart Personalisation and Preparation System (SPPS) covers the entire process of issuing smart cards, from importing and preparing data through production to key and lifecycle management. It allows organisations to turn empty smart cards into fully-fledged identity documents independently.


Our SPPS solution has been designed with card issuers, data collectors and card personalisation bureaus in mind. It covers the entire process of multi-application smart card issuance, while boosting the efficiency, control and security of card production in a cost-effective way. Meeting the highest industry-accepted security standards, SPPS imports, extracts, transforms and generates data for personalization and manages the whole production lifecycle of smart cards.

The solution has a separate module for each step of the card issuance process. It also plays well with third-party modules, with communication taking place on a well-built interface for improved cost-effectiveness.

Besides the physical ID card, SPPS can create a virtual counterpart – e.g. on a smartphone – to support the remote enrolment of ICAO-compliant digital identities. It can also be easily integrated into the mobile identity ecosystem.




SPPS Console manages the process of personalising smart cards, end to end. Suitable for multi-application cards, it’s a cost-effective solution that leverages your existing infrastructure and equipment. Sensitive data is handled in line with the strictest industry standards.
