WALLISELLEN and SION, Switzerland - November 29, 2011 (euro adhoc) - Multicard,
a leading supplier of credential solutions, identity management and system
integration services and a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE,
Frankfurt: INV), today announced the launch of polypurse™, an Internet-based
platform for managing the cashless payment functions of its popular Swiss ID
card for campus environments. polypurse adds new features and convenience,
including online account management and reporting, for the tens of thousands of
student and employee cardholders at universities and hospitals across
Switzerland. 

With polypurse, cardholders can now perform a range of cashcard management
operations online, including checking account balances, verifying transactions
and re-loading the card with cash value via a bank account or credit card. In
addition, polypurse enables cardholders to securely access value-added local
services such as Mobility CarSharing® for short-term city car rental and
velopass for bike rental.

"Our Polyright ID card has been extremely successful on university campuses in
Switzerland, serving as an all-in-one ID credential for payment, building
access, library check-out, locker or bike rental and a number of other
applications," said Thierry Gattlen, Managing Director of Multicard polyright
SA. "The ability to manage the cash functions of the card online via polypurse
offers significant convenience for holders. In addition polypurse helps prepare
the card for an extended life beyond university, as people can continue to use
the cashless payment functions of the card after graduating."

management, cashless payment on campus POS, vending machines and copiers and
seamless integration to additional applications, including dorm access, IT
