Brisbane, Australia, August 17, 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 that it has been selected by the youth-oriented Australian
travel agency Student Flights to provide identity management services for the
verification and issuance of International Student Exchange (ISE) student ID

Student Flights is the youth and adventure division of Brisbane-based Flight
Centre Limited and its 50 stores across Australia are authorized issuing agents
for the internationally recognized ISE card. In addition to serving as an ID
credential for student travel and work, ISE cards also entitle their holders to
student discounts worldwide on everything from flights and rail passes to food,
hotels and hostels, as well as emergency assistance while traveling. 

"Multicard´s identity management solution allows us to outsource the backend
activities associated with issuing ISE cards while still maintaining our role as
the primary interface with our customers. Multicard´s online portal is very easy
to use, students get their ISE cards quickly and the whole system is secure.
This is important to us because Student Flights is recognized as a leader in the
youth travel market and ISE cards are a must-have for every student traveling at
home or abroad," said Darren Lloyd, Student Flights´ Brand Leader.

The customized identity management system that Multicard has implemented for
Student Flights includes a secure online portal for data collection,
verification of applicants´ age and status as students or teachers, and card
issuance by Multicard´s secure card production bureau. Once a Student Flights
staff member has captured all of the relevant information about a student and
entered it into Multicard´s portal, Multicard verifies the data and produces the
card, which can then be mailed directly to the student or delivered to the
Student Flights sales office for pick-up.

"Multicard´s broad experience with identity management systems helped us to
create a custom solution for Student Flights that meets the needs of their
business, which is centered around providing personalized, experience-based
service," said Ross Head, Managing Director for Multicard Australia.  "By
helping Student Flights to give their customers a positive experience, we also
benefit with follow on business as students return each year to have their
expired ISE cards reissued."
