With the Chinese card manufacturer China Win Smart Science & Technologies, the company gains an important provider of contactless ICs and IC smart cards, such as bank cards and ID cards as well as related applications and other value-added services. In future, China Win will offer contactless identification credentials based on modern LEGIC multi-application technology.
Agreeing to the partnership, China Win is reacting to the growing demand for contactless LEGIC cards on the part of its customers. Also, as an important supplier to other manufacturers world wide, the company now also provides LEGIC based transponder solutions for access control, time & attendance or cashless payment systems. “The LEGIC license agreement will strengthen our international market position and is a key factor for our future business development”, said Carpenter Cui, MD of China Win. “Our end customers benefit from a highly developed contactless technology that allows a very flexible combination of many applications on one single card while meeting highest security requirements.”
