The products are marketed both as off-shelf products and turn-key solutions. MaCaPS also provides consulting services. MaCaPS is envisioned to be a leading high- performance smart-card system provider with low-end prices for its products.
History of MaCaPS Founded in 1997 with injection of Taiwan VC fund of HK$20M with establishment in 3 locations including HK, Taiwan and South Africa to work on Magnetic Card Protection System Asia Financial Crisis – VC fund withdrawn within 3 months [project stop in mid 1998] 1999 move into Smart Card Area 2000 ITF fund awarded 2002 Recap Physical Security Technology start with 3 people
2004 moved out from CityU with 6 staff and rent office in Kwun Tong expanded to 16 people in acquires our own office premise and grows to 26 staff in early Financial Tsunami hit business badly reduced work force substantially to survive business returns went negative Expected will pick up, however, things may change in the second half of the year [inflation, mid east problem, and Japanese earthquake/nuclear crisis]
Competitive advantages Technology - wider range, better security; patent protected, support proprietary design, faster algorithms Customization – custom self produced OS, customized s/w, simple fast turn key solutions Local Support – optimal and cost effective quality design and manufacturing
Goals MaCaPS targets to become one of the major smart card access control systems and RFID solution providers in Hong Kong and worldwide.
Strengths MaCaPS is able to provide a unique mix of smart card chip designer and manufacturer, a systems and services provider. Offering a one-step solution to clients include design, consultancy, implementation, site work and after sale services and maintenance. MaCaPS has some patented technologies to protect its intellectual property
Opportunities Based on the world security manufacturer 2003 data – the existing market is US$3 Billion per year with a growth of over 50% per annum HK and China are the fastest growing market for smartcard applications. New applications for HK ID card such as access control, e-authentication, digital certificates and e-payment. The HKSAR government will spend approximately HK$3.06b on the new Smart ID card project. New applications for China National ID card for 14 billion people. New initiatives for medical and logistic applications

New Initiatives Biometrics RFID Green Energy eHealth
Finger Print Solution Using highly reliable and secure Korean manufactured BioEntry Plus device. IP based fingerprint access control device featuring easy installation and user friendly operations. Integrated with proximity card, provide a total soultion for networked access control systems.
Facial Recognition - Facelog Design to address the issues unfound in other biometric products. Highly innovative unit requires only 1 sample photo for user registration.. IP based communication facilitates connection of multiple units to a central PC server, providing flexibility, while ensuring data security by central storage and processing.
RFID - Solutions Library Fun fair Grand Events New Applications
Old Octopus Payment Kiosk OLD: The work flow for collecting fines with Octopus-enabled cash registers (1) Library Staff input the Student ID to Library System, retrieve the outstanding fines in Library. (2) Library Staff enter value in Octopus enabled Cash Register. (3) User put Octopus card to settle payment. (4) Staff manually update patron record to complete the whole payment transaction. Cash Register Library Innopac System Octopus Card Reader No Direct Communication Connected by staff intermediary 33
EasyPay Benefits Cash handling require huge manual effort especially in Library with Fines. Minimize the human error in cash handling and input error in the system interface. Faster transaction compared with old practice. Provide round the clock payment even the counter is closed. 34
