SALTO Systems partners with LEGIC

LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, a leading manufacturer of contactless smart card technology for personal identification, expands its partner network with Spain-based SALTO Systems to offer advanced contactless solutions. The partnership will result in a wide range of online and offline access control products based on the secure LEGIC advant technology and respond to the worldwide market's growing demand for LEGIC applications.

Agreeing on the partnership, SALTO expands its product portfolio by the integration of the flexible LEGIC smart card technology. This further enlarges the product offering within the market place 'World of LEGIC'. The new solutions will not only meet modern security requirements for access control but also allow the combination of many different functionalities on one single credential.

"The partnership is very important for SALTO in terms of strengthening our worldwide leading position in access control and locking solutions", says Marc Handels, Vice President Global Marketing of SALTO Systems. "We are now able to provide our comprehensive security products based on a cutting-edge identification technology platform."

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales & Business Development of LEGIC, is convinced of the benefits for both sides: "The partnership helps us to cover the ever growing demand for our solutions. We can benefit from SALTO's worldwide market presence and an international distribution network and its advanced offering, especially in contactless door locks based on our LEGIC advant technology. On the other hand we can offer a state-of-the-art identification technology that fulfils highest requirements in terms of security, flexibility and convenience."
