In an increasingly technology-dependent world, individuals are looking to leverage their smartphones as much as possible, and mobile credentials can be beneficial for both operational and security purposes. Mobile credentials offer numerous advantages over traditional keys and cards and can serve as a safer and much more convenient alternative.
With the pandemic still causing uncertainty in businesses reopening, and employees returning to the office, mobile credentials are a touch less, cost-effective, convenient, and secure option for organizations.
Today, the market demand is strong for access control technology that employs mobile credentials managed and implemented via apps on personal smartphones, replacing the need for physical cards. Mobile credentialing has the potential to improve both security and convenience and is delivering enhanced protection in many ways. To date, however, mobile credentialing has not been able to find the balance between security and convenience.
Farpointe Data announced that access control system manufacturers, integrators, and dealers will be able to provide their customers with a mobile, smart phone application and hardware that provides free download, user’s choice of smart phone or smart card, and distribution via existing or independent access control software.
