SANTA ANA, Calif., ISMANING, Germany and AIX EN PROVENCE, France, November 3, 2011 – Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE, Frankfurt: INV) and INSIDE Secure today announced the delivery of the 10 millionth smart ticket to a popular vacation destination in Southeast Asia. The thermal printed guest tickets are used at the resort for contactless admission to various attractions and guest facilities.
“Our customer has experienced a three-fold increase in visitors over the past year, which has required rapid turnaround on new ticket designs and production to keep up with their growing demand,” said Michael Kober, managing director of Identive’s Transponder division. “Our goal is always to provide a consistently high level of quality and service, and we are very pleased to have achieved this high-volume milestone of 10 million tickets with this valued customer.”
Over the past 24 months, Identive has supported this Southeast Asia customer with specialized singular and fanfold guest tickets across a range of printed media, as well as printed contactless smart cards used for special memberships and events. The tickets and smart cards are based on Identive’s Smartag antenna and inlay designs, utilize PicoPass™ contactless memory card technology from INSIDE Secure and are produced at Identive’s manufacturing facility in Singapore.
“Our versatile, open-standards PicoPass contactless memory chips are ideal for multi-purpose applications like the Identive contactless smart tickets because they can manage up to 16 independent applications while ensuring their individual security settings, and can store large amounts of data, including high quality photographs, fingerprints, biometric templates, signatures and data records. We are excited to have them play such a central role at this popular resort,” said Bertrand Moussel, executive vice president for worldwide sales at INSIDE Secure. “INSIDE has worked very closely with Identive as our partner for this project to help integrate PicoPass with the Smartag antenna designs, and look forward to their continued success with this customer.”
