The Irish Government is set to introduce a card swipe machine that can be used to swipe lease cards without leaving the office.
Dublin City Council’s chief executive, Joe O’Sullivan, said the swipe tool would be installed in all the city’s public buildings in a bid to speed up transactions and reduce card fraud.
“We’re very excited to introduce the swipe card service in Dublin City,” Mr O’Neill said.
“With our citywide implementation of the Visa-enabled credit and debit cards in the next few months, we will be introducing this service to every office in the city.”
The card swipe will be available in all public buildings and in all areas of our city, as part of our long-term strategy to support the growth of credit and debits cards in Dublin.
“The card reader is a device that allows users to swipe cards without entering any PIN numbers, which could make it easier for customers to use the machines.
It can be programmed to detect a card and to activate the card, which will then be inserted into a card reader.
The technology can be configured to work on the following credit cards:Credit cards issued by Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
In addition, a range of other cards can be scanned with the card reader to help ensure that customers are not left behind.
The system is also expected to be used in the Bank of Ireland and the State Bank of Northern Ireland.”
This is a very significant technology in our city.
We’re very happy that this will be deployed and the city is going to get this service, which is expected to save a lot of money and reduce fraud,” Mr Sullivan said.
A spokeswoman for Dublin City Council said the service would not be used at any other office.
The swipe tool is expected be rolled out in the coming months.
