Examples of Vivax Solutions Using
Plastic Card Technology:
A major university approached Vivax to develop a
home grown Debit Card System that would allow students
to purchase goods from on and off campus stores.
Vivax delivered the solution within a couple of
months. The system comprised of a PC, Credit/Debit
Card Terminals and Plastic Cards. The system
operates similar to bank oriented debit systems,
the PC contained the dollar amount available to
each student, students were issued plastic ID cards
and debit card terminals where installed at the
retail locations. Payment with the debit card
is the same as other debit systems the student passes
the plastic ID card through the terminal.
The terminal dials the PC via telephone link.
The PC looks up the account and either sends a verification
or denial message back to the terminal. The
PC transfers funds from the student account to the
merchants' bank account completing the purchase
Plan Membership Card System
Vivax in concert with a healthcare company developed
a comprehensive Healthcare Plan Management System
scaleable to operate the smallest to the largest
Managed Healthcare Organizations in the country.
The system that Vivax developed electronically links
the Healthcare Administrators with each of their
service providers (doctors, hospitals etc).
The system was designed around plastic card technology,
PC, credit card type terminals and plastic ID cards.
The early system provided only member verification
similar to credit card verification. The system
over a period of years evolved into a complete administrative
system electronically transmitting and verifying
referrals, claims and payment between the plan administrators
and the service providers. The advantages
of this system are fraud reduction and real time
healthcare data to assist in proactive management.
Marketing Card System
Vivax was approached by an international marketing
company that contracted with hotels to sell promotional
packages to employees of companies located within
their marketing area. The objective of the
promotion is to increase hotel revenue by attracting
prospective customers that are not in their current
customer base. The promotion package includes
redemption certificates and discounts for hotel
services including rooms, dining and other services.
The client required a real time system to collect
the results of the promotion (increased hotel revenue)
to be used as a selling tool. Vivax, again,
used plastic card technology as a solution.
We designed a solution using plastic ID cards, credit
card terminals and a PC to collect the data and
