More than 1.4 Billion payments cards have been issued with the ADVANTIS card payments chip for credit and debit card transactions.”We are excited about our adoption of the ADVANTIS chip and operating system into our advanced biometric secured credit and debit card which is allowing our biometric card solution to be issued by some of the World's largest banking groups throughout the world,” said today SmartMetric's President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.ADVANTIS is operating in 3 Continents and 40 Countries. SmartMetric is headquartered in the United Sates with engineering and manufacturing in Tel Aviv, Israel and East Asia. All product design and development is done by SmartMetric's engineering team and is owned by SmartMetric.SmartMetric has created a fingerprint scanner that fits inside a credit and debit card and is used to provide biometric protection for these cards. The card user simply touches a square sensor on the card's surface and in less than 0.25 seconds the card's internal fingerprint scanner reads the card user's fingerprint and if the fingerprint matches the card is immediately turned on.
