Multicard AG, general contractor in the field of smart card project consultancy and implementation, expanded its product portfolio. Multicard has closed on a licence partnership with LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, the producer of contactless smart card technology. Therefore, the company is offering highly developed LEGIC technology-based multifunctional customer and credit card solutions.
With this partnership, the company is reacting to the growing demand for multifunctional smart card solutions. Multicard has already introduced LEGIC based contactless smart cards as customer cards with an integrated ticket for local public transport services in the town of Augsburg/Germany. Besides applications in the field of electronic fare management, Multicard is planning to use LEGIC technology in such areas as ticketing and access control.
Sandro Avanzini, Sales Manager for Multicard AG, expects the partnership to strengthen their market position: "With LEGIC we are gaining an internationally recognized partner that is a figure in the realm of multifunctional smart cards and NFC solutions. The introduction of the Karocard within Augsburg's public services is without doubt merely the start of a series of promising projects with LEGIC."
"Multicard AG marks a further enrichment of our international partner network," also stated Dr. Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC.
