SCAP and Zwipe partner to bring biometric access cards in France




SCAP becomes a distributor for Zwipe and creates the first starter pack in French for Zwipe Access, the biometric Access control card.

OSLO, NORWAY and VAULX EN VELIN, March 27, 2024 – Zwipe A.S., a company listed on the stock exchanges of Oslo and Stockholm, a pioneer and world leader in the development of biometric technology on cards for identification, access control and payment, has teamed up with SCAP, the leading distributor of access control cards and readers in France, focusing on providing advanced security RFID solutions, to introduce the innovative "biometric system-on-card" to SCAP's customers in France.

SCAP's customer base spans across the entire security industry in France, including physical and logical access system manufacturers, installers, integrators as well as corporations in various industries, including airports, transportation, healthcare, data centers, critical infrastructure, manufacturing, government, and education.

As a testimony of SCAP commitment and to fulfil immediate demand from early adopters, SCAP has placed its first purchase order to Zwipe already and launched the first Zwipe Access starter pack in French language.

Zwipe Access utilizes state-of-the-art biometric capture and matching technology to securely store the cardholder’s encrypted fingerprint template directly within the card’s smart chip during issuance. This integration seamlessly aligns with the requirements of SCAP’s customers, allowing them to integrate biometric verification swiftly, securely, and cost-effectively into their existing security infrastructure.

According to Pierre Yves Dudal, president of SCAP, “In today’s highly secure EU requirements for working environment, having easy access to the latest access technologies is critical for all strategic or sensitive sites. The biometric card provided by Zwipe brings breakthrough ID card technologies to existing identification systems for the next generation of physical and logical access.”

“We are happy to partner with SCAP, a leading advanced security solution distributor. We look forward to developing and strengthening the relationship with the French security market thanks to our local expertise and support, as well as supporting SCAP to deliver best- in-class customization and logistic for access control solutions integration partners globally,”, says Robert Puskaric, President and CEO of Zwipe.
