New printers, cards and inlays based on LEGIC from card manufacturer BadgeCom

Zurich, Switzerland, May 19, 2009 – BadgeCom GmbH, a supplier of card printers, credentials and personalisation services, is a new partner of LEGIC Identsystems Ltd. The results of the partnership are new printer and chip card solutions which incorporate the LEGIC contactless smart card technology. BadgeCom is thus reacting to the constantly high demand in Europe for LEGIC based products.

As a supplier of comprehensive card solutions, BadgeCom offers all the services associated with the introduction of chip card solutions, from card printers via plastic cards and accessories right through to personalisation services. These identification credentials are available as LEGIC cards and can be used by companies as multifunctional employee cards or in recreational facilities as integrated guest cards.

“The licensing partnership with LEGIC will strengthen our position throughout the European market”, says Gabriel Shiller, CEO of BadgeCom. “From now on our customers will be able to use a highly developed contactless technology which enables a large number of applications to be combined on a single card and at the same time fulfils the highest security requirements.”

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC, is convinced that both companies will benefit from the partnership: “Through the partnership with BadgeCom we are reinforcing our strong presence in the European area. The successful development of new LEGIC based product lines at BadgeCom shows that we can look forward to a profitable partnership together.
