Zwipe introduces JavaCard enabled biometric payment solution
Zwipe has developed a proprietary JavaCard operating system solution that is compatible with multiple global payment network applications. The solution is applicable for biometric payment cards, wearables and other ultra-low power payment and biometric applications.
Zwipe’s biometric payment platform features the company’s biometric engine and power management systems located on a flexible inlay which is integrated inside a traditional payment card by Zwipe’s card manufacturing partners. This platform is integrated with JavaCard OS and multiple payment applets found on the card’s secure element.
“With this announcement, Zwipe is uniquely positioned to be able to offer products that address both Multos and Java, further broadening the company’s scope in meeting various customer preferences and needs in the biometric payment card marketplace,” explains Zwipe CEO André Løvestam. “Several of our already announced partners will use our JavaCard enabled biometric payment solution and we have received interest from multiple other card manufacturers to integrate it into their payment card offerings.”
Earlier this month Zwipe and Thomas Greg & Sons do Brasil, one of the largest card manufacturers in Latin America, agreed to co-develop and launch biometric payment cards. The biometric technology company also announced a partnership with TAG Systems Group to launch a commercial biometric payment card offering that will include a secure at-home enrollment solution.
