Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH announced as new license partner of LEGIC Identsystems Ltd

Zurich, October 23, 2008–LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, a leading developer of contactless Smart Card Technologies for personal identification, is further extending its network of partners with system provider Scheidt & Bachmann. This will enable Scheidt & Bachmann to now also offer its customers LEGIC based solutions as part of its comprehensive range of systems for electronic fares management, car parking/leisure facilities and petrol stations.

Scheidt & Bachmann is integrating LEGIC technology within its solutions in the areas of electronic ticketing, and access control in the leisure sector, in particular. In addition, the company is now in a position to focus increasingly on LEGIC in the realm of car park equipment, too. The installation of an e-ticketing fare management system for public transport in the city of Augsburg shows that the technology is already in prominent use.

“The collaboration with LEGIC as part of a licensing partnership enables us to provide a more exact response to our customers’ needs,” says Thomas Müller, Project Manager, Scheidt & Bachmann. “Customers will now enjoy the benefits of up-to-date LEGIC advant technology in our e-ticketing-, parking and cashless payment solutions as well as the opportunity to access secure and easy-to-use multi-applications.”

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development at LEGIC, is also anticipating important synergies as a result of the partnership: “In Scheidt & Bachmann, we have not just one of the leading suppliers of electronic ticketing solutions for public transport as well as leisure and parking systems. We are also able to provide end-users with an even wider selection of LEGIC based products and systems.”
