Multicard Provides Integrated Smart Card Solution For Student ID Verification And Administration

MURARRIE, Australia, May 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Multicard, a leading supplier of credential solutions, identity management and system integration, and a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE), (Frankfurt:INV), today announced an integrated smart card solution that allows schools, universities and other educational institutions to verify student identities, track and report attendance, manage access to campus services and validate students' exam papers. The new student ID solution is based on the latest near field communication (NFC) and MIFARE™ DESFire EV1 contactless card technologies, ensuring the highest level of security and data validation capabilities, as well as significant ease of use for administrators and students alike.

"Our new Student Identification and Tracking Solution enables educational institutions to upgrade their existing identity management systems and benefit from the greater power, security and ease of use of contactless smart cards," said Ross Head, Managing Director for Multicard Australia. "We have been working with a number of universities that have assisted and guided us through the key issues that affect them most. The result is an integrated, comprehensive solution that encompasses registering students; issuing personalized student smart ID cards; verifying those ID cards at the door, at the library and for payment, parking and events; and validating exam results."

Multicard's Student ID and Tracking solution allows educational institutions to interface to their existing student databases, retrieve student data and produce new student IDs based on secure contactless smart card technology. The new student IDs can be verified and logged with a quick tap to an NFC-enabled mobile device loaded with Multicard's mobile application – a portable verification station that can be located anywhere on campus, for example outside an exam room or sporting event. These information logs can be used to collate data for ongoing education credits, to verify attendance or for other purposes. To reduce testing fraud, the student ID cards can be visually confirmed and then scanned along with NFC tags attached to exam papers to track and validate the authenticity of the exam to the identity of the student. All data captured on the local NFC verification devices can later be securely transferred to a central web server where Multicard's management software can generate administrative reports. The solution is flexible and educational institutions can select the features they want initially and add to the system over time.
