In Germany, LEGIC partner firm Rexroth the Identity Company has won the bid for the new, corporation-wide staff badge personalisation system at Bayer AG. Rexroth has the order to produce and personalise staff badges for all five Bayer manufacturing plants and all sister companies. The 100,000-plus badges will be used for access control purposes. The solution permits employee data and pictures collected at various places and then to be sent via e-mail or the client?s intranet to the main Rexroth processing centre. This way the centrally personalised badges can be sent to any Bayer location in Germany within 24 hours. Rolf Zeller, Managing Director of Rexroth, said: ?Among the many advantages for the customer is the fact that they do not need to make an investment into card personalisation equipment. All costs, including infrastructure are paid for by a flat charge for each badge that is issued.? Part of the package is a central office management system, visitor management and an on-line purchasing system. A chip-card based IT access authorisation system is being considered. A time and attendance system and cashless payment via debit card, will also be possible on the badges. Some 50 turnstiles, 30 barriers and about 350 building access readers, provided by sub-supplier Kaba Tuersysteme GmbH, were also supplied by Rexroth. The contactless operating reader technology built into access readers, barriers and turnstiles and the microchip integrated into all staff badges is supplied by LEGIC Identsystems AG.
