The partnership with LEGIC opens up access to the world of contactless LEGIC Smart Card technology and its variety of application options.

The partnership with LEGIC enables us to include LEGIC technology in our portfolio of services and increases flexibility when integrating our platforms”, says Benoît Rouiller, President and Executive Director of Softcom. “We anticipate a variety of synergies for both companies as a result of the partnership with LEGIC and are delighted to become a part of the growing network of LEGIC partners.”

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC, says that both companies will benefit from the partnership: “By deciding on a partnership with LEGIC, Softcom has secured itself access to our technology, and can flexibly integrate LEGIC-based solutions.”
