HONG KONG, 27 May, 2012 – Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Card Systems Holdings Ltd., SEHK: 8210), Asia Pacific’s top supplier and one of the world’s top 3 suppliers of PC-linked smart card readers (Source: Frost & Sullivan), launches a loyalty and e-purse application demo entitled “Online Purse and Loyalty Demo (Contact),” which may be accessed online using ACOS3 Smart Cards, and either an ACR38U Smart Card Reader or an ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo Smart Card Reader.
The demo shows how to implement point of sale (POS)‒related transactions and loyalty programs with the ACOS3 and ACS’s PC-linked contact card readers. Specifically, it demonstrates how to create and replenish stored value for e-Purse cards, shop for products, and convert loyalty points to e-Purse value.
ACS will be creating more demos for other devices (e.g. for contactless cards and readers) and applications. These upcoming demos will be uploaded on http://demo.acs.com.hk/, a webpage solely for users to try out applications using ACS devices. The webpage and demos are both supported by latest versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
Demos available online will help ACS provide efficient, on-demand support. “Smart card technology improves life of thousands of people in big and little ways, from keeping bank transactions safe, to shortening time spent on checkout lines. But we must help developers unleash the smart card potential, by providing them all the support and information we can,” says Gilbert Leung, ACS’s Vice President for Sales and Marketing. “The more we show people how to apply smart card technology in the real world, the faster we benefit people.”
