Zurich, January 2009 – LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, a leading developer of contactless smart card technology for personal identification, is further extending its international network of partners. With Y Soft s.r.o., LEGIC is gaining a licence partner in the Czech Republic which has further locations in Japan, Israel, Denmark and Hungary, and which distributes its highly developed YSoft SafeQ® printing solutions worldwide. In the future, access to LEGIC technology will enable Y Soft to extend the flexible support for LEGIC technology for its customers. Y Soft and LEGIC products meet the highest requirements in terms of ease of use, reliability and security.

The use of contactless LEGIC readers in the Y Soft SafeQ print solutions opens up new opportunities with regard to the authorization and cost of print jobs. The partnership again highlights the variety of possible applications of contactless LEGIC advant technology. As well as being used in time & attendance, access control and electronic payment systems, applications in the area of office automation are increasingly coming within the focus of LEGIC Technology. LEGIC will also be increasing its presence in the Eastern European market with its new licence partner Y Soft.

Dr Ondřej Krajíček, General Manager of Research & Development at Y Soft, is convinced that the LEGIC licence partnership will strengthen its market position: “The integration of contactless LEGIC technology with our printer and copier solutions gives us a definitive technological lead. This is our response to the increasing demand from our customers for office automation systems based on LEGIC technology.”
