Open Options supplies integrated security solutions and is now a licence partner of LEGIC Identsystems Ltd who manufactures contactless smart card technology platforms for personal identification.

LEGIC Partnership

This partnership will deliver comprehensive IP access control solutions based on LEGIC technology.

Through this partnership Open Options is responding to growing demand in America for LEGIC based security solutions.

Open Options security solutions have been successfully deployed across all sectors of industry in business environments and transport as well as in educational establishments and leisure facilities.

As a provider of integrated total solutions, Open Options offers hardware and software components as well as peripherals, right through to systems integration including all the components of a comprehensive access control system.

“The license partnership with LEGIC gives us access to leading identification technology in our core area access control” says Steve Fisher, Open Options President/CEO. “Our customers will benefit from solutions which combine the open architecture of our systems with flexible LEGIC multi-application technology.”

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC, knows that both companies will reap the benefits of this partnership:

“This partnership with Open Options is another step towards strengthening our presence and solution offering in the global market. Open Options’ international customers will benefit from technology which is both highly secure and flexible.”

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 Decides on LEGIC advant

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 5,000 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.”
