Introducing CardzGroup Africa
August 2018, News, Access Control & Identity Management

CardzGroup Africa (CGA) provides off the shelf and bespoke card solutions alike, for a number of diverse businesses in every vertical segment. For more than 10 years CGA, a Level 1 B-BBEE company, has offered customers contact in a contactless world.

CGA has a unique position in the African market given its strategic directorship link with CardzGroup Limited, based in Hong Kong. This corporate feature alone provides the organisation with a direct and legally sound link to an extensive Chinese manufacturing base. This structure also means that the blending of the resourceful Chinese workforce with Western-style management, together with internationally recognised quality control standards.

The connection with China further ensures that full card personalisation can typically be provided from the factory, ensuring that the end-customer is provided with the most efficient path to a fully customised product. The direct relationship means that none of the typical artwork set up fees and the myriad of other associated costs apply, since the organisation’s goal is to provide the best solution at the best price.

A fully equipped personalisation bureau in Cape Town, provides local personalisation and product deployment capability – a service used by many of the largest retailers, fuel card distributors, gift card providers and financial organisations. This bureau is able to meet all personalisation requirements, whether they be surface printing, encoding of magstripes and contact or contactless chips or whether it is for full embossing.

The secure personalisation facility is working to become fully PCI-DSS compliant. This difficult-to-achieve standard ensures that the methodology and processes whereby personal data is downloaded, utilised and destroyed is properly and securely managed. The storage and shipment of encoded and personalised cards is tightly controlled to ensure every card is accounted for with any spoils being dealt with appropriately.

Paddy Janneman, the MD, is an industry stalwart with many years spent within the banking and IT sectors. This experience enables CGA to operate extensively within the banking, retail and security card markets where knowing your products, your partners and your customers is key to success.

In April this year CardzGroup Africa employed John Lakin, formerly with the HID Global division of ASSA ABLOY, to grow their share of the RFID market, specifically within the secure access control industry. This additional resource means that CGA is a well-rounded, mature knowledge centre with regards to all things card related.

Traditionally focused on cards and plastic product, CardzGroup Africa is constantly adapting and evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of the market. With the expertise inherent in their strategic partnership with a globally-dominant Asian manufacturing base, CGA is able to offer a multitude of different technology form-factors, from the traditional cards and tags to paper tickets, rubber wearable wristbands, single use wearables for events, to bespoke chip-enabled stickers for vehicles and other movable assets.
