We once again had a successful day here in Paris at CARTES 2013! A big thank you to all who were able to stop by the stand today and visit us.
It's exciting to see constant traffic to our stand and ongoing interest in our instant issuance and mobile commerce solutions. We are showcasing how--through the combination of software and hardware--cards can be instantly issued in real-time via a phyical card, or virtually and securely downloaded onto a mobile wallet application that can be used at point-of-sale terminals. We continue to discuss with issuers the importance of offering customer convenience, optimizing return on investment, and the strategy on where the payment ecosystem is going.
In addition, Datacard Group's Wayne Fletcher, senior marketing manager for the government vertical, was part of a panel discsussion today that gave an analysis of global and regional trends in eGovernment. As many governments start to shift their focus to eGovernment applications because of the benefits it offers to them and their citizens, its very important to understand the deployment models, challenges and best practices for implementations. This panel discussion did just that and was very well-attended.
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow for the final day of the show, and please stop by our workshop on "The Science Behind the Credential: Real World Lessons from Secure ID Experts" at 10am in the exhibit hall.
