ASK is the recipient of the 2004 Frost & Sullivan Market Leadership Award in the contactless world smart card market. The award recognises implementing superior market strategies and establishing itself as the market share leader.
"The company has established itself as a leader in contactless shipments primarily through its successful participation in large scale, mass transit projects in Europe and the United States," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Vihar Bhagwat.
