Now in-person meetings are back in action, it’s time to relook at streamlining processes.
When travelling between different sites, people want convenience. There’s already so much to think about and they want procedures to be as easy and efficient as possible.
Clients, suppliers and other temporary visitors don’t want to have to wait in lengthy queues to receive temporary access cards. Fortunately, with mobile access, they don’t have to.
Mobile access allows all staff, clients and visitors to use their humble smartphones as a key to gain entry to secured buildings.
The best part?
They no longer have to wait in long queues to receive temporary credentials, as credentials can remotely be issued pre-arrival. This means temporary visitors can swiftly and easily enter the premises using their mobile device, without having to queue up, search for ID and inconveniently wait around to get a temporary pass or be granted access.
This is just one of the many benefits of switching to mobile access. Another is that mobile licences can be transferred across users, so there’s no need to repurchase a new licence every time temporary credentials are assigned. For instance, if an administrator has purchased one mobile credential licence, they can assign that credential/mobile ID to a temporary visitor and as soon as their work is done, they can remove the credential from that person’s device and issue it to another person requiring temporary credentials.
This ensures costs are kept to a minimum as there’s no need to regularly purchase licences.
With regards to confirming a person’s identity, the company can carry out background checks before issuing credentials, such as requesting a copy of the person’s passport via email. Then once the person has been authorised, an administrator can instantly grant them credentials, allowing them to open doors with their personal device.
The user can then use their mobile ID for multiple sites, granting them complete convenience. Once their work is done and they no longer need access, a security administrator can easily revoke access from the management portal and the user will not be able to access that building again, ensuring on-site security remains intact.
If the building already has a compatible access control card reader, administrators can instantly purchase mobile licences and issue mobile credentials. If the organisation’s readers are not yet mobile-ready, they can upgrade to a compatible reader such as the HID Signo 20 reader.
It’s clear to see that switching to mobile access makes business meetings more convenient, alongside saving organisations money and strengthening security.
