HID Global completes world’s first series of NFC-enabled smartphone pilots that open doors in the enterprise

Participants cite improved convenience and security of using phones to open doors

“These pilots with Netflix and Good Technology clearly demonstrated how a highly mobile workforce can receive digital keys over-the-air and to their phones and use them to open doors, just like they had previously been doing with their existing photo ID cards, keyfobs or tags,” said Debra Spitler, vice president of Mobile Access Solutions with HID Global. “As one pilot participant told me, “only having to carry one device for so many daily tasks is excellent.”
