The mobile access solution from HID allows digital employee badges to be stored in Apple Wallet. Users of iPhones or Apple Watches can store the badge in the digital wallet and gain access to their workplace as soon as they hold their device up to an NFC-enabled reader.
The technology reduces the waiting time for physical cards and improves the user experience. The first user of the new access solution is the office tower “22 Bishopsgate”, the second largest skyscraper in London. Smart Spaces, a provider of intelligent building technology, and HID have already been responsible for access control in the building since 2020 and have now jointly introduced seamless employee access via Apple Wallet.
