Multicard’s platform will enable a single ID credential in theform of a contactless smart card to be used for physical access to buildings, time andattendance tracking, cashless payments in the cafeteria, as well as PKI (public keyinfrastructure) applications to access the company’s computer network.

Henkel’s globallyrecognized brands and technologies such as Purex/Persil detergents, Schwarzkopf, Dialsoap and Loctite adhesive hold leading positions in the international consumer and industrialmarkets.Michael Strenger, responsible for Site Security for Henkel Düsseldorf, said, “Carrying onemulti-purpose card is more convenient for employees, but it is the security that the newsystem provides that makes it particularly useful for Henkel. Rather than having to issue andmanage separate credentials for each secure application, such as physical and logicalaccess, we can now ensure that all credentials for an employee are issued or revoked at thesame time. In addition, Multicard has helped us to lower the costs of our credential logisticsby providing us with professional card fulfillment services, which gives us more flexibility inhow we manage the day-to-day issuance.”Another important criterion for Henkel was Multicard’s ability to encode, personalize anddeliver any number of cards for employees, from one to several thousand, cost effectivelyand within a short turnaround time.Juergen Mueller, managing director of Multicard Germany, stated, “As an ID systemsintegrator, Multicard is focused on providing our customers with tailored solutions thataddress their needs, both now and in the future.
