SCB Solutions partners with Evolis to provide simple and affordable smart card issuance solutions to any organization
Arlington, VA - February 22, 2007 – SCB Solutions, Inc., a smart card solution provider, and Evolis Inc., a leading provider of plastic card customization solutions, announce a strategic partnership to provide organizations with a smart ID that will authenticate users and protect their physical and logical assets.
Large companies and the federal government have shown the way by issuing smart card IDs through the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD 12). But they often did it with complex and proprietary card issuance and management systems not feasible for smaller companies or agencies.
The strategic partnership between SCB Solutions and Evolis will allow any organization to issue secure contact and contactless ID cards and guarantee their physical and logical protection. SCB Solutions’ approach does not rely on heavy and expensive card management systems but relies on standard and existing information sources within the organization, such as Microsoft Active Directory. The system is user-centric and not card-centric, allowing an organization more time to manage its users and less time managing the cards.
“Evolis brings affordable and high-quality printers. Evolis really listened to our requisites and developed printers that fully match our requirements and those of our customers,” says Ronan Lapie, President of SCB Solutions.
“SCB Solutions opens a new channel for us allowing our printers to be involved in the issuance of high end ID smart card IDs. Filling the gap between “box movers” and “big consulting/integrating firms,” this strategic partnership is the solution for smaller organizations,” says Gerardo Talavera, Managing Director of Evolis Inc
