HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, will showcase its Location Services for Workforce Optimisation at IFSEC 2017. The company will also highlight its range of secure access control solutions and other identity offerings.
HID Location Services for Workforce Optimisation is designed to address a market need for accurate, real-time location of an organisation’s workforce. By combining Internet of Things (IoT) technology with the power of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Wi-Fi and cloud-based solutions, organisations can gain increased visibility into the location of their workforce in a facility. This makes it possible to analyse room usage for building management and increased operational efficiency. Future use cases include building automation capabilities, enhanced security features and capabilities that facilitate life safety management and compliance.
Harm Radstaak, Vice President and Managing Director of Physical Access Control at HID Global, stated, ‘As the latest addition to our portfolio, HID Location Services extends the traditional capabilities of access control to improve security and area governance within buildings. This new solution underscores our commitment to developing innovative trusted identity solutions that power people, place and things.’
HID Global will also be promoting trusted identity solutions, including the use of smartphones, wearables and tablets via HID Mobile Access. Supporting NFC and Bluetooth Smart, it works with Apple and Android devices without additional accessories. HID Mobile Access supports 137 smartphone devices.
