HID Global, a provider of secure identity solutions, announced new solutions that secure Internet of Things (IoT) applications to improve the convenience and effectiveness of monitoring heating and cooling systems, along with a variety of manufacturing and safety equipment. The company’s latest HID Trusted Tag Services solution for Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) joins HID Global’s trusted identity solutions that solve key challenges faced by facility managers in an IoT and smart building ecosystem. The new solution provides secure “proof of presence” of maintenance and inspection teams to automate and drastically simplify service order management.

Cloud-based maintenance systems

The HID Trusted Tag Services solution seamlessly integrates with CMMS systems to link physical assets to cloud-based maintenance systems and IoT applications. This automates service calls, with a simple tap of a mobile device, to streamline monitoring and maintenance of fire safety, back-office systems, and cafeteria equipment. The offering enables field service teams to easily acquire service history and repair manuals, as well as open service tickets and confirm service call times, duration, and status. All service events can be monitored and tracked locally, regionally, or globally using a mobile device. The solution can also be used to more effectively manage compliance and inspection workflows for regulated equipment.

“HID Global is known for leveraging the power of mobile to protect people, assets and data, and we continue to drive innovation with new HID Trusted Tag Services use cases that meet the expanding requirements of today’s facility manager,” said Mark Robinton, Director of Business Development and Strategic Innovation with HID Global. “HID Trusted Tag Services is the missing link to take a CMMS to the next level for secure, intuitive and mobile management of high-value facilities, equipment, and assets across an organisation. Optimising facility operations is now an imperative, and HID Global is ahead of the demand curve with offerings that help make buildings smarter.”
