Multicard, a unit of Identive Group that supplies credential, identity management and system integration services, has signed a contract with global consumer products company Henkel to provide a global multi-function identity credential service card to Henkel employees.
Multicard will employ its contactless smart card single ID credential to provide building access, time and attendance tracking, payment services in employee cafeterias and PKI applications for network access.
Henkel said in a press release that it opted for Multicard’s services because they could consolidate credentials for physical and logical access onto one card, which helped realize cost savings. Multicard also has the ability to encode personalize and deliver a large number of cards in a short timeframe.
Multicard will deploy the cards and will also be responsible for managing the program on an ongoing basis.
