SmartCity® 6 offers contactless technologies, remote data collection and flexible, modular, web based system.

SmartCentric Technologies International Ltd (SmartCentric) has announced a new release of SmartCity®, the market leading smart card system, which has been installed in over 90 sites worldwide with over 5 million cards issued.

SmartCity® version 6 offers the full range of SmartCentric’s multi-applications now on contactless cards (RFID). This makes the use of smart cards faster and simpler: by simply tapping a card on a reader the cardholder can purchase goods, gain access to secure areas and even control access to PCs and networks.

A card office now has more options and control over their system than ever. SmartCity® version 6 offers remote data collection giving the best of both worlds for networked areas and remote locations. In addition, there will be a reduced requirement for hardware and a simple deployment and card issuing application. New customer cards, POS terminals, vending machines, servers and applications can be introduced more easily and quickly. All new interfaces are web based making it simple to deploy and operate.

Key features of the new system include centralized processing and security which offers reduced costs for card issuing; easy to configure, deploy and manage services, offering increased ease of use for off-campus and city card programs; improved transaction processing and collection giving more information with less effort; web based interfaces; better administration tools for easy system management; simple upgrade of cards in the field; an improved reporting system and a new infrastructure which supports smaller issuers

Kieran Timmins, CEO of SmartCentric comments “The investment we have put into the development of SmartCity® 6 demonstrates our commitment to the smart card market and will allow us to experience even greater success and growth in 2007 and beyond. SmartCity® 6 means greater card choices, less hardware and simpler and hence cheaper card deployments”

Chris Rizzetto, Sales Director, North America adds “SmartCity® 6 offers customers everything they need to future-proof their card program – a simple system, suitable for large and small scale issuers, that can support existing systems together with new contactless cards offering multiple applications including secure access and biometrics on a single card. ”
