OUD-BEIJERLAND, The Netherlands - August 11, 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), announced today it is providing the Municipality of Enschede,
The Netherlands with an integrated solution to manage administration of the
community´s free bus transport service for older residents. Multicard´s solution
encompasses participant enrolment, the issuance of special passes for the
service, management of the database of participants, and the design and
management of a web portal that allows the city to monitor the process and flow
of the project. 

This special transport service is being introduced as a result of agreements
between the Municipality of Enschede and the Dutch transportation operator
Connexxion. The service allows residents aged 70 and older to use the city´s bus
system to visit friends and relatives, do errands and take advantage of
community facilities by supplying each participant with a free bus pass. 

Arjo van Veenendaal, project manager for the Municipality of Enschede stated,
"Our collaboration with Multicard has been very positive.  Enschede is known as
a dynamic, energetic and progressive business community, so it was important
that the introduction of the 70 + pass was well organized, efficient and rapid.
Multicard´s flexibility and ability to improvise to get things done has been a
significant help in achieving this. Modifications and changes were implemented
quickly and Multicard has provided insights to address problems as they arise,
while keeping a close eye on what is desirable and possible. That balance has
led to a result that city management, and hopefully our elderly residents, are
very happy with." 

According to Hennie Otto, Connexxion´s project manager for the free
transportation service, the enthusiasm for this project is considerable and at
least 90% of currently eligible residents are expected to participate. To date,
Multicard has processed enrolment and mailed out the "70+" free public transport
passes to 11,000 elderly residents of the city. Multicard and the Municipality
of Enschede expect to continue their cooperation in the future, as the program
is ongoing. 

"In a country where population aging is a major trend, there is a continual
increase in demand for social services for older people - such as the free
public transportation program in Enschede," stated Pieter Kooistra, managing
director of Multicard Netherlands. "Managing these types of programs requires a
secure and flexible platform for safeguarding the data collected from individual
participants, as well as the capability to act as an interface between the
community offering the program and the residents who will use it. Multicard
specializes in providing identity management programs and integration services
for smart communities, universities, hospitals, emergency management and other
markets where there is a need for secure and efficient handling of personal data
to support ongoing program management and reporting."
