Fingerprints and Beautiful Card Corporation (BCC) to expand partnership and develop contactless biometric payment cards for the global payment market
World-leading biometrics company, Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints™) and BCC, a leading card manufacturer based in Taiwan, are collaborating on developing and launching biometric cards, both for access and payment, for the worldwide market. The cooperation also covers joint go-to-market initiatives, including offering biometric cards to other card manufacturers that are part of BCC’s partner portfolio.
The ongoing collaboration has already resulted in a biometric payment card that features Fingerprints' first-generation T-Shape® module. The partnership is now extending to include development of next-generation biometric cards featuring Fingerprints' second-generation T-Shape® module (T2) including the FPC-BEP software platform
“This will shape the future for the payment industry since the collaboration between Fingerprints and BCC will enable state of the art biometric payment and access cards globally. Enterprises and banks alike will now be able to offer secure and convenient biometric authentication for their payment transactions as well as for physical and logical access applications,” says Michel Roig, President of Payment & Access at Fingerprints.
