Nexus and Zwipe in partnership around biometric access cards

Identity and security company Nexus Group and biometric technology company Zwipe have signed a distribution agreement and launched the sale of Zwipe’s biometric access cards via the online portal Nexus GO Cards as a Service. “We already offer a very wide range of card technologies, and we are excited to announce that you can now also get access cards with integrated fingerprint sensors,” says Nexus’s Jon Land.

With Norwegian Zwipe’s biometric access card Zwipe Access, the user simply holds their finger on the fingerprint sensor on the card before presenting it to the card reader.

“Zwipe has developed a truly unique solution that suits organizations that want to increase their security – without making any changes to their existing access control system or security infrastructure,” says Land, managing director for Norway at Nexus.

The user’s fingerprint is registered directly on the chip on the card, which means there is no need for databases.

“Zwipe’s fingerprint cards make biometrics easy and cost-efficient. Since we are all about innovative technology, Zwipe Access fits perfectly into our product portfolio,” says Land.

Einar Boije, senior vice president of access control at Zwipe, is pleased that Nexus will manage the stock keeping, personalization and distribution of Zwipe Access throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“Nexus is an established and rapidly growing company with an impressive customer base and a great partner network. Our new partnership is making the Zwipe Access ordering process just as straight-forward as its technology,” says Boije.
