As HID Advanced Technology Partner we developed a locking solution which enables organisations with an existing HID™ access control to extend high access security level to their office / employee lockers. Seamlessly integrated solution enables employees to manage their lockers with the same smart card or HID Mobile Access™ app, which they use for the access.
With the expansion of mobile technologies in our professional and everyday life we developed the Metra mobile app MyMetraKey, which enables each locker user to use and manage his/her locker on the go – from anywhere in the world, if a situation requires.
A second generation contactless access control and electronic locking system offers even more features, providing easier 3rd party hardware and software integration. The new development mainly focused on adding more functionalities, grouping them into “models” build for special purpose of use (SELECT, ASSIGN, ASSIGN TOUCH, NET, etc.). This gave us possibility to focus on other industries and fields of implementation, providing our partners with wider range of customers.
Listening and understanding the market needs led us to integrate many new technologies. ISO 14443 Type A technology presented an important milestone, making our systems even more customer tailored. This was possible by a wide spread ISO 14443 Type A technology acceptance.
Complete access control and electronic locking solution including cashless vending, based on ISO 14443 Type A technology, proved to be the element of quality sought for by the investors of Thermana Laško Waterpark.
We have cooperated on one of the most recognizable regional ISO 14443 Type A technology projects, Ljubljana city card, Urbana. We integrated Urbana card as a visitor key in Ljubljana’s sport facilities.
We encouraged the wide-spread web-migration policy and prepared the first web based software application, purposed to support complete electronic locking solution. This change of thinking provided new opportunities and radically changed the way we think about integrated and networked systems. The new web based approach offers a much less demanding integration work and system support, saving a lot of customer costs.
At this time we also introduced a new Ski Lockers solution. The solution offers purpose build hardware and software components, allowing ski resorts to function better and offer more to their visitors. It proved to be a good step forward, performing more installations every year.
New system was developed using contactless RFID technology. First installation was performed at Blue Lagoon resort, Iceland.
Existing access control or membership cards are supported, enabling locker usage using the same media. Contactless technology also enabled us to implement cashless vending which became a standard functionality in all later Metra systems.
Building on access control experience, we added the possibility for visitor to use a single contact smart card to access pool and their locker. This approach allowed much more safety for their personal items. It also simplified customer’s visit, using only one media, not a bunch of them.
In next few years we have cooperated on various contact smart card technology projects like Loyalty card Pika (Mercator) and Slovenian Health Insurance Card (ZZZS). Slovenian Health Insurance Card, a nationwide project, operated more than 2 million contact smart cards and more than 6000 contact smart card readers.
Only a single media was used to open a hotel lock and to access the swimming pool area. We named the used smart card an LCC card (Leisure Center Card). After this LCC became a familiar expression used with various product and solution titles.
Building on prior experience and widening the customer base gave us enough push to achieve Gemplus VAR (Value Added Reseller) status for projects based on smart cards, memory cards and readers.
