Scytáles: These were our biggest moments in 2020

Summarizing an unprecedented year like 2020 is surreal. Imagine if we were told one year ago that face masks, social distancing and lockdown would become normal protective measures to save lives. This year has been daunting and humbling. In rearview, there are many lessons to be learned. But even though life as we know it will continue to be disrupted throughout 2021, at least now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. For Scytáles 2020 has in spite of all been a very successful year and we would like to share some of our proudest milestones with you.

Note from the CEO

Creating new innovative product lines from scratch to serve billions of people is not an easy task! Incredible passion, relentless drive, the highest level of expertise, incremental development, the strongest team spirit and most solid teamwork are some of the success factors that have brought Scytáles to where it is today.

The 16th of November was an important milestone in the company´s history. Together with our partner GET Group, we were the first vendors to pass the UL conformity assessment against ISO 18013-5. This is the proof of an assurance level, interoperability, usability, and trust that is ready now for issuing authorities such as DMVs, Road Administrations, Ministry of Interiors as well as for relying parties.
