Zwipe introducing its biometric smartcard at Seamless Asia


Zwipe is introducing its dual-interface payment card at Seamless Asia, currently being held in Singapore.

The biometrics-based payments solution is the first of its kind to fully integrate EMV compatible contact and contactless transactions. The ISO and EMV compliant card operates without the need for a battery, allowing end-users to make limitless contactless transactions. All biometric information is securely encrypted only on the card meaning that the solution works without the need for a database.

“We have been working diligently to bring our biometric payment technology to market and the payment card, which we will be showcasing at Seamless Asia, will give attendees in Singapore a glimpse at what we have been demonstrating successfully behind closed doors in pilot programs over the last few months,” commneted Kim Humborstad, Zwipe CEO.

“We are not just integrating a fingerprint sensor into a traditional payment card,” added Humborstad. “There are many unique components that are working seamlessly together to enable a more secure and user friendly experience with applications that go beyond cards.”

Zwipe is seeing significant interest in biometric smartcard applications and systems in Asia, Europe and North America and according to SVP of Payment, Pascal Dufour, expects to “see our technology being deployed in Asia as early as this year.”

Earlier this month, Zwipe was invited to present and participate in a panel as part of the New Technology Spotlight at this year’s International Card Manufacturers Association (ICMA) Expo held alongside the Smart Card Alliance Payments Summit.
