OLS Announces the Release of OLS.Card for Financial Institutions, Processors and Program Managers

January 12, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Dallas based On-Line Strategies announces, for general release, its latest software product offering, OLS.Card. OLS and several of its existing customers are collaborating on the first live implementation of OLS.Card, scheduled for release 1st quarter 2010. OLS.Card was conceived as a result of numerous customers and prospects seeking complimentary card management system components for use in conjunction with the company's core authorization engine, OLS.Switch. On-Line Strategies developed OLS.Card as a completely different approach to card management. OLS.Card presents a highly configurable framework for issuers to build upon. Card issuers can choose to implement the most basic of functionality or customize OLS.Card to support their unique business strategy.

Core feature sets include hierarchy management, product and card lifecycle management, cardholder services via a self-service and customer service representative portal. "Card management products are typically developed as an afterthought and are not very flexible," says Terry Richards, president of OLS. "We wanted OLS.Card to be an integral part of our customer's overall solution by offering the flexibility to meet current needs and be able to expand as our customer's business grows. OLS.Card leverages our core competencies. Our new product is a natural progression for us and we're excited to offer an evolutionary card management product to the market place."
