LEGIC strengthens its presence in Austria and Eastern Europe through partnership with card manufacturer Inplastor
Zurich, November 2008–LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, the leading manufacturer of contactless smart card technology for personal identification, continues to expand its partner network and agrees a licence partnership with the Austrian Inplastor GmbH. This will enable the card manufacturer in future to increasingly offer contactless identification media based on the modern LEGIC advant multi-application technology.
With this partnership Inplastor is responding to growing demand from its customers for contactless LEGIC advant cards, particularly in the East European and Austrian market. As a professional partner in the area of cards, Inplastor will thus be able to offer integrated LEGIC based transponder solutions for e.g. access control solutions, time & attendance or cashless payment systems.
“For us, agreeing the licence partnership with LEGIC represents a major investment in the future”, says Andreas Korger, Chief Operating Officer of Inplastor GmbH. “The opportunity of offering LEGIC based cards opens up new distribution channels to us and reinforces our presence in the sales markets in Eastern Europe, which are particularly important to us”.
Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC, also looks forward to an increased strengthening of his company’s own market position due to the partnership: “In Inplastor GmbH we are gaining a partner who possesses substantial experience in the introduction and implementation of comprehensive card solutions. In addition we will also benefit from the far-reaching network of partners and customers which Inplastor has above all in Austria and Eastern Europe”.
