Leading Chinese university chooses multi-application campus card solution based on LEGIC advant®

Tianjin Polytechnic University (TJPU)  (PresseBox) (Zurich, ) Tianjin Polytechnic University (TJPU) has decided on a partnership with Switzerland based LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, a leading manufacturer of contactless smart card technology for personal identification. Its School of Computer Science and Software Engineering will now be able to upgrade more than 3000 POS terminals to the latest LEGIC advant technology and to develop new terminals and access control readers for the whole campus. By integrating different elements of university life, the institute benefits from increased security, flexibility and service for students and staff.

Tianjin Polytechnic University has already been using LEGIC technology to manage payment processes and access control on the campus. With the partnership agreement, TJPU now can trade on the migration to LEGIC advant as a flexible and cost-efficient technology which also meets advanced requirements in terms of security. It enables an easy integration of different solutions but also allows for the customisable adaptation to new or modified applications.

"Year after year, we issue more than 5000 new campus cards. Thanks to the flexible expandability of the LEGIC smart card platform we can now enhance our identification system independently and adapt it to future demands", says Zhenkai Wan, President of Academy of Computer Science and Software Engineering at Tianjin Polytechnic University. "The possibility to easy modify or add applications has been one of the most important reasons why we have decided for LEGIC advant."

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC: "LEGIC advant is a state-of-the-art technology in many school and corporate campus installations in Europe. More and more, the advantages of this technology are also leveraged by our Asian customers. Especially solutions for universities become increasingly important for us as they can enable a lot of potential for improvement in terms of integration, efficiency and service to students and the organization."
