Universal Smart Cards

Universal Smart Cards is a market leader in the supply and deployment of smart cards and related smart products. Having shipped over 300 million products worldwide, they are able to offer clients a vast array of smart cards, card readers, card printers and accessories, together with RFID wristbands, key fobs, labels and tags.

Universal Smart Cards offers a ‘one stop shop’ for smart products. They also provide advice and consultancy services to facilitate the implementation of smart cards for applications including (but not limited to); corporate ID, IT login and physical access, cashless payments, print management, loyalty and membership, time and attendance and asset tracking.

Over the last decade the company has seen significant growth with end customers including Formula 1, Premier League football clubs, blue chip retailers and TfL. It has a dedicated team of industry specialists, with over 100 years combined smart card experience, working from 3 locations across the UK.

The business now sees strategic expansion into overseas markets as a natural way to grow further. With the rapid growth of certain markets – Internet of Things, RFID, NFC, and Wearables, which has been forecast to be exponential – they have seen sizeable opportunities to promote their innovative products and capability.

CommonwealthFirst looks forward to supporting Universal Smart Cards to develop its export strategy and to approach vast and populous new markets including India, Nigeria, South Africa and Canada.
