SAMSUNG SDS Pursues Digital Suwon Project

Samsung SDS (CEO: Hong Ki Kim) has been selected as the primary contractor for the "Digital Suwon" project to lead the construction of electronic community.

Samsung SDS announced on Jan. 30 that it will provide the "One Pass Suwon Card" that's based on K-Cash (electronic cash) to Suwon and has formed a consortium with Korea Financial Telecommunications & Clearing Institute, CCKVAN, Miraecity.com, Viewtech, and SST for joint participation in the project.

Construction of "Digital Suwon" infrastructure is based on K-Cash and will offer the "One Pass Suwon Card" at all bank branches in the city of Suwon, beginning in June after extensive tests in the first half of the year. With the card, Suwon citizens will also be able to receive governmental services through family home pages, which will be provided to every household, allowing them to conduct electronic transactions.
As such, Suwon citizens will be able to shop and use the public transportation system with the "One Pass Suwon Card." The "One Pass Suwon Card" can be recharged at home, using the same system as the current bus card recharging system. This would enable Suwon citizens to make the Internet and electronic commerce part of their everyday lives.

The construction of the "Digital Suwon" infrastructure will be enabled with the solutions development and systems integration for the "One Pass Suwon Card"by Samsung SDS, while Korea Financial Telecommunications & Clearing Institute will provide the settlement system. Miraecity.com, a venture firm, will provide content and electronic commerce certification. CCKVAN will solicit member retailers. Also Viewtech and SST will be responsible for maintenance.

Jae-Duk Shim, mayor of Suwon stressed, "The 'One Pass Suwon Card,' which will be provided to the citizens, is one step ahead of the conventional debit card and has the functions of a credit card. "He added," the 'Significance of Digital Suwon' project is that it gives an incentive for the citizens to use the Internet and to foster an environment for electronic commerce."

Yang-Kyu Park, director of Samsung SDS, said, "With the construction of the infrastructure for electronic cash (K-Cash) for Suwon City, a satellite city of Seoul, the K-Cash consortium has secured an advantageous position in winning bids for similar projects for other satellite cities and metropolitan cities, including Kimpo and Inchon."
