World-leading biometrics company, Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints™) has entered a partnership with global card manufacturer Tag Systems (and part of AUSTRIACARD Group). Banks, fintechs and Tag Systems’ broader customer portfolio will be able to offer cardholders the enhanced convenience and security of biometric-enabled payment cards.

The partners will launch an advanced biometric payment card solution based on Fingerprints’ biometric technology, which is already live in a combined 30+ pilots and commercial launches globally. Fingerprints' second generation pre-certified T-Shape® (T2) sensor module, and software platform, will combine with Tag Systems’ extensive payment card solutions and services, based on ST Microelectronics STPay-Topaz-Bio.
