November 2023 by Marc Jacob
Fingerprint Cards AB and IN Groupe through SPS, its globally brand in contactless and dual interface card manufacturing technologies, have come together to collaborate on IN Groupe’s Smart Packaging Solutions (SPS). The partnership supports global card manufacturers in scaling up their production of contactless biometric cards.
The partnership between IN Groupe and Fingerprints will facilitate the manufacturing of biometric payment cards that incorporate Fingerprints’ biometric sensors, software and algorithm, offering ultra-low-power consumption and leading biometric performance. Additionally, the biometric payment card solution will further support smartcard manufacturers’ growth ambitions by improving reliability, reducing costs and significantly simplifying the manufacturing process for dual-interface and contactless cards. IN Groupe holds 25% of the dual interface market worldwide outside China with its SPS solutions.
Biometric technology brings both convenience and security to cardholders, since they no longer need to remember a PIN to use their payment card. Biometric payment cards are gaining popularity and the growth of the market can be attributed to the rising technological advancement and global acceptance of the contactless payment method.
