Multicard 2013 Software for Pro Series


MULTICARD 2013 is CIM’s response to the ever increasing demand for sophisticated software for card production through intelligent and safe data management and high level professional graphic elaboration.

Intelligent and flexible system allowing the management of different internal record variables, such as: date, time, magnetic track contents and bar-code. Thanks to the OLE DB, ODBC and COM technology, easy access to all the information can be achieved from any existing data base and from Access, Excel and DBF programs. The field engine also permits different field variables to be combined in the same record and fixed text to be added. Partial extraction from each field is also possible. It is possible to memorize and control the record information concerning the production of cards, like date, time, identification, duplication of cards.

MULTICARD 2013 can import information using Bar-Code readers, Encoders, Chip and Contact-less readers and the identification of OCR characters through camera. It then structures them through direct field access.

MULTICARD 2013 makes it possible to produce quickly and easily complex graphic effects such as superimposition and gradients. In addition, the actual design is displayed on the screen. Thus, what appears on the screen is the finished product.

MULTICARD 2013 is an application for 32 bit Windows operating systems: thanks to the “multi-threaded programming” technology, it is stable and safe. It is written in C++, the fastest and most powerful language for controlling the hardware right down to its finer details and ideal for applications which work in real time.

MULTICARD 2013 is very easy to use because it offers users a convenient on-line help system. It is familiar right from its initial installation as it functions with the most widely used standard Setup software in the world: most of the Microsoft, Corel, Sun etc. applications are in fact distributed with this system.

MULTICARD 2013 can manage and control the machine: the printer set up involves a dialogue window where all the components can be directly modified. It is also designed to control additional connected machines making use of the same graphic interface. There is a wizard that helps the operator set-up the parameters of the machine and of the printing job.

MULTICARD 2013 also has new features for data-security.

The new functionalities have been implemented in order to increase the security of the card holder’s data processing and to meet the strict requirements for the production of EMV cards.

Data coming from a database can be encrypted and decrypted using an external software library that can implement the most common encryption algorithms. The library can be developed by third parties under Microsoft windows Dynamic Linking Library with a high level of customization.

In addition, the software offers a new high level security password management system for EMV processes.

MULTICARD 2013 is a flexible, intelligent platform with a highly intuitive user interface that allows even the less experienced to manage all aspects of card personalization.
