With cards as a service, you can outsource the production of access cards, photo ID badges, and key fobs, and order ready-to-use credentials with only a few clicks.

You can now also order PKI cards as a service. Contact Nexus to get started.

The first step is to set up a personalized online catalogue of cards and key fobs in the Nexus GO onboarding tool. You can then order the predefined items from an easy-to-use ordering portal, or have the ordering functions built into your own applications using the ordering API

For PKI cards, you order your cards via a cloud-based ordering tool, connected to your own named certificate authority (CA). 

Nexus is delivering ready-to-use cards and key fobs to addresses throughout Europe.

How does it work?

Nexus GO Cards has two parts: 

  • In the onboarding tool, you configure the cards and key fob profiles to be available in your organization’s online catalog in the ordering portal.
  • In the ordering portal, you order cards or key fobs from the predefined selection in your own customized portal.  
  • With the ordering API, you can order cards or key fobs from the predefined selection using an application programming interface (API).
