HID Global

HID Global, a worldwide provider of trusted identity solutions, is driving the connected workplace with new HID Location Services for workplace optimisation capabilities that help ensure the safety of building occupants, facilitate compliance and increase operational efficiencies.

The company has added robust features to its HID Location Services portal to help organisations better understand who is in a building at any given time. The latest converged credential incorporates access control and a location services Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon in a single smart card for a more intuitive user experience.

Accurate real-time capabilities

HID Location Services for workplace optimisation now powers more reports and dashboards

Highly regulated organisations need to have appropriate access policies in place for managing who enters and exits the building, as well as what areas and information resources they can access--for what reasons, and when,” said Ian Lowe, Director of Product Marketing, Enterprise Physical Access Control.

Traditional time-and-attendance solutions cannot accomplish this as efficiently as HID Location Services. Its precise real-time and proximity location capabilities are the reason why customers with stringent requirements are early adopters of our innovative IoT technology.

HID Location Services for workplace optimisation now powers more reports and dashboards that provide deeper and broader building visibility, including immediate insight into the total number of people in a building or on a particular floor. It enables customers, especially organisations that need to comply with health and safety regulations, the ability to achieve extremely accurate timing of entry and exit of employees and visitors.

Enhanced visitor awareness

The solution also enhances visitor awareness by making it possible to know where visitors are in a building with a simple click, while also providing historical information about where visitors and others have been in the building in the event of an emergency, security breach or theft.

Millions of HID Location Services credentials and gateway IoT devices have been deployed for workplace optimisation

To date, millions of HID Location Services credentials and gateway IoT devices have been deployed for workplace optimisation by some of the world’s pre-eminent financial institutions and healthcare organisations.

In addition, oil & gas companies and multinational construction and development firms are using the solution to improve safety and the overall efficiency of their workplaces. Tech giants are also piloting HID Location Services based on its ease of use, low cost for deployment and accuracy.
