HID Mobile Access enables employees to use their smartphone, tablet or wearable to access doors, gates and networks.
Phunware said with the technology’s new integration in MaaS, app users are able to use mobile devices instead of badges or key fobs for access purposes, adding that its technology also integrates with BEEKs Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) beacons, which are available through HID Location Services.
HID Location Services is a location engine powered by a Bluetooth to Wi-Fi network, delivering location-aware data to address people, high-value assets and equipment applications under a single Internet of Things (IoT) umbrella.
HID Global is an independent brand of Assa Abloy, a Swedish door and access technology firm which has over 3,000 employees across more than 100 countries supporting end-users in government, financial, corporate, education and healthcare markets.
In a statement, chief technology officer and co-founder of Phunware Luan Dang said: “Phunware’s MaaS platform provides organizations with a comprehensive mobile software layer that helps drive not only user engagement, but also promotes improved utilization of disparate information technology solutions and resources. By integrating with existing technologies like HID Mobile Access, we help our customers create and promote seamless, mobile-first experiences, to enhance their productivity and profitability.”
