Multicard's New Polyright(R) V5 Software Delivers Single Card Solutions For Identity Management, Security And Payment

Stocks in this article: INV INVE

The advanced polyright V5 platform seamlessly connects to Multicard's polypurse™ e-wallet, which provides the web interface and transaction software that allows cardholders to buy a coffee at the campus café, rent a bicycle or perform other payment and loyalty functions using their campus ID cards. The cards are easily reloaded with cash value over the Internet by linking to bank accounts or credit cards. Tightly integrated with the new platform is polyright ID Manager, a comprehensive identity management module capable of setting cardholder rights for physical access, network access, e-purse functions, net printing and copying, and other applications. polyright ID Manager works with multiple RFID card technologies, including LEGIC®, MIFARE™ and others, to support mixed-user environments.

One of the first customers to benefit from the new polyright V5 platform is the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). MC polyright, a division of Multicard, is implementing the new platform for ZHdK to enable all of the more than 2,500 students and 1,200 faculty and staff to use their university-issued ID cards for a variety of daily activities around campus. The system will allow administrators to issue and renew ID cards, personalize them, and most importantly, manage all the access rights for each cardholder on multiple applications from one central platform. This means changes to user privileges only need to be made one time to be effective for all applications on a given card, rather than updated individually for each application for which that user has rights. In addition, MC polyright is providing the university with point-of-sale terminals, readers and implementation services to enable the ID cards to be used for payment at campus cafeterias, bistros, vending machines and the library. The ID cards are also accepted for payment by more than 40 multi-functional printers on campus and allow faculty and staff to charge print/copy service fees back to their respective departments. The comprehensive identity management solution will also support inter-campus physical access control. Students of the adjacent Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) may be granted guest access to certain facilities and services on the arts campus, with ID cards issued and managed using the new polyright platform.
