ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A credit union is the first financial institution in Ohio to begin issuing its members credit and debit cards on-site, according to the lending vendor of the instant issuing technology.

Dynamic Card Solutions announced that the $136 million Glass City Credit Union, headquartered in Maumee, Ohio, is the first financial institution in the state to start on-site issuing. The CU said it would start instantly issuing debit cards at its headquarters and two of its branches.

“We had been considering instant issue for many years,” said Mark Slates, president of Glass City FCU.

“Before we made the decision to go with DCS, we were fortunate enough to see one of DCS’ credit union customer’s instant issue programs on location. We were not only impressed with the CardWizard software itself, but after speaking with the financial institution’s staff and hearing the simplicity of the program and positive feedback, we were confident in selecting DCS as our instant issue vendor of choice,” he said.
