Founder & CEO
vps ID Systeme
Mr. Jürgen König is founder and Chief Executive Officer of vps ID Systeme GmbH, a leading European supplier of professional IT solutions for ID management. He is also Director of software engineering for the company.
Over the last fifteen years, Mr. König has led vps ID Systeme from serving a few key suppliers of access control systems to becoming a global provider of hardware-independent ID management software solutions. He identified early on the changing role of corporate ID cards from pure access control and time & attendance credentials to important daily business tools for employees. This insight led him to develop open-architecture web-based solutions that enable the management of large populations of multi-application credentials based on different identification technologies (contact and contactless smart cards, biometrics and others).
Mr. König has become a thought leader in the industry and the company he leads is now involved in many large-scale corporate ID management projects as well as government-driven citizen ID programs worldwide.
Before starting vps ID Systeme, Mr. König had been involved, since 1984, in software development, consulting and system customization in the field of access control, time & attendance and ID document solutions.
Mr. König holds a degree in computer science from the University of Applied Sciences of Karlsruhe.
