ACS Launches Product Line Websites

Aside from making our smart card readers viewable through our website, we have come out with six websites, each featuring one of our smart card reader lines.

This is intended to help users make side-by-side comparisons of ACS readers more easily. Each product line website combines into one page all overviews of the ACS smart card readers that fall under it. Links to websites for individual products and other related content are also included in the product line websites.

We hope that this makes it easier for those interested in smart card technology to find the solution that best matches their needs. Below are links to the product line websites:
