Fingerprint Cards AB has announced the launch of Smart´Nroll, a simple and reusable enrollment device for biometric payment cards.

Fingerprint Cards AB has announced the launch of Smart´Nroll, a simple and reusable enrollment device for biometric payment cards.

Officials from Fingerprints comment that the overall experience of the cards starts with the first interaction, so it is essential the enrolment process is just as smooth as tapping to pay. The Smart´Nroll device enables both at-home and in-branch enrolment. The new commercial enrolment solution is ready for shipment and will support large-scale launches of biometric payment cards. The device is also compliant with all biometric cards supporting STPay-Topaz-Bio – a solution previously announced by Fingerprints and STMicroelectronics. 

For new biometric payment card users, Smart´Nroll powers the payment card during the registration phase. The device features a user-friendly display, prompts, and a progress bar that transcends language barriers, ensuring accessibility for users worldwide during the registration phase. This adaptability is crucial for the global deployment of commercial launches. 

Furthermore, the company states that the device is compatible with a unique re-use bank program, a replaceable battery and is compliant with multiple card configurations. Much like the cards themselves, Smart´Nroll is secure, ensuring that no personal fingerprint data is stored within the device, ensuring privacy in line with the GDPR.
