IDEX joins the Asia Pacific Smart Card Association
IDEX has signed on as a member of the Asia Pacific Smart Card Association (APSCA) reinforcing the company’s commitment to the Asia Pacific market.
APSCA is the business association for payments and identity applications in Asia and has one of the largest business networks in Asia with over 11,000 payments and identity industry executives from end-users and suppliers, including senior decision-makers from government agencies, banks, credit card companies, transport and ticketing operators, mobile operators and merchants responsible for issuing, accepting and processing secure cards and documents, contactless cards and devices, biometric identity cards and ePassports.
APSCA organizes the annual Powered and Next-Generation Cards conference which takes place next week in Singapore and also co-founded ID4Africa to promote the transparent and responsible adoption of digital identity in Africa.
“We are delighted to welcome IDEX Biometrics as our new APSCA member,” commented Greg Pote, Chairman of the APSCA. “Biometrics are becoming an essential foundation for consumer payments and identity solutions while next-generation biometric smart cards are the latest example of this trend. IDEX is one of the technology companies driving this new development. As a leading biometrics solutions provider with offices in Asia, they are exactly the sort of company APSCA aims to work with and support across the region.”
IDEX recently announced that its fingerprint sensors are being deployed in biometric cards used for a new end customer trial running in the Middle East. At its AGM in May, IDEX noted that securing its leadership position in the market for biometric cards is the company’s top priority.
