IRVINE, Calif., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- NetPack, Inc. (http://www.netpackage.com) announced today that it is looking to Orga Card Systems International (http://www.orga.com), the pioneer in smart card technology, to produce and provide support for NetPack's First Internet Access Card and the NetPackage Internet Retail System.
"Orga Card Systems International is a leader in smart card technology, and that's why we are exploring ways in which we can work together," said Nils-Eric Svensson, vice president of marketing for NetPack, Inc.
Netpack has created a unique retail-to-Internet crossover system that will virtually do away with conventional shrink-wrap retail software packaging, and bring the retailer into the loop of the ever-threatening world of E-commerce. The Netpackage Internet Retail System allows software producers to sell their software by using a NetPack card that can be as small as a credit card, and marketed through stores, even mini-markets or gasoline stations, as well as in mall kiosks or airport stores.
"Consumers will always want to shop at traditional retail outlets, and we have created the vehicle that links E-commerce and traditional retailers," said Svensson.
"Using our system, retailers can offer their customers Internet products and services right in their store along with the other products they have for sale. The concerns traditional retailers have expressed about being left out of E-commerce is answered with our NetPack First Internet Access Card and NetPackage Internet Retail system," he said.
"We are getting flooded with calls from software companies, book publishers and Internet providers, which proves they believe there is a need to be loyal to the retailers who have created their success in the first place," he added.
