Mbrite SmartCard Technology
Smart card technology
With smart cards organisations have the potential for using a single card for
multiple business applications. This can provide significant efficiency
gains by (a) requiring just a single identity token and (b) consolidating
identity management processes. However, most organisations only use these
cards for one application.
Mbrite provides expertise to allow organisations to extract the most value
out of their card based systems and to facilitate the use of smart cards for
multiple applications. This includes the deployment of smart card
applications, the development of custom built solutions and a holistic approach
to smart card management.
Smart card applications are often designed to work in isolation with little
regard for other systems. This can lead to a range of limitations from
requiring a user to encode/enrol their card in multiple systems (normally at
different locations) through to absolute prevention of additional applications
(e.g. by sector locking).
To ensure success of running multiple applications the planning and deployment
of smart card systems needs to be well structured and undertaken by experts.
Mbrite has expertise in deploying smart card applications, ensuring multiple
systems will function seamlessly together and in deploying solutions to ensure
card encoding/enrolment is efficient.
Through Mbrite’s expertise in Smart Card technology we can build custom
solutions to meet specific business needs. This can be as simple as
converting legacy systems which use barcode or Mbrite technology across to smart
cards, and can be as extensive as developing highly specialized applications to
meet complex business requirements.
However, in combination with our deployment expertise and understanding of
existing applications, Mbrite uses its development capabilities to
streamline application usage and card management. For example, Mbrite has experience in building solutions which load multiple Smart Card applications
through the one transaction, often covertly without a person even knowing new
applications are loaded on the card. This ensures organisations obtain
optimal return on their investment in Smart Card applications and technology.
