Our membership packages are designed to provide a unique industry platform where companies can conduct business, engage with customers, develop industry partnerships and use the APSCA network to keep up-to-date with the latest commercial and technology information that will support their business in countries across the Asia Pacific region

Industry Networking

We have one of the world's largest networks of contacts in the smart card industry. Many of our members can use this network to locate both end-users and suppliers. End-users value our service to locate suppliers who can help with their smart card schemes and initiatives, while our through us, our member-suppliers can locate potential customers, partners, distributors and agents for business development purposes.

Information Services

As part of a network of over 500 member organisations from around the world, APSCA has access to information resources which are second to none in the smart card industry. This enables APSCA to provide members with information about almost any aspect of smart card technology or business which they are likely to need to develop their smart card scheme, service or business. Much of this information is not in the public domain.

Reach, Influence, Educate…

As an independent smart card association for both end-users and suppliers, APSCA is ideally positioned to assist members in educating and influencing government regulators and policymakers, smart card user groups, suppliers and vendors, media and market analysts. This education and influence can take the form of private lobbying and advice, industry communication or media-facing activities.

Inside Track

APSCA is one of the world's leading providers, as well as a source, of smart card business and technical information. With thousands of smart card experts with APSCA members around the world, APSCA is in the best position to track smart card developments for our members. Much of the information which APSCA disseminates to members only is not in the public domain and is known only to the industry at the time of dissemination.

Market Strategy Reviews

Through APSCA's membership, companies can receive an annual strategy review of their business based on APSCA's extensive knowledge of Asia's smart card industry and understanding of past and future trends. This is an extremely valuable contribution to the development of the future business strategy of any organisation.

Business Matching

APSCA provides business matching services to assist Members in promoting their products, or to assist them in locating products, services and solutions. These services work both proactively (members request our assistance in selling or sourcing) and passively (projects and opportunities are offered to members).

Sales Support Services

APSCA also offers sales support services to assist member organisations to present and sell their products and services in a foreign market. In many cases we have helped members locate and work with agents and distributors that align with their business interests and goals.

Aside from the regular member services, APSCA can assist Members with their own promotional initiatives.
