Mobile Access works across international offices


Employees at software company CafeX enjoy seamless access to its international offices using their smartphone or wearable devices, thanks to the HID Mobile Access solution.


CafeX Communications develops software for web and mobile applications. Headquartered in New York City, it has offices in the United States, Canada and the UK.


CafeX needed to modernize its access control system to work across its international locations. The company wanted a centralized solution enabled on smartphones and wearables with speedy issuance of employee and visitor digital IDs.


CafeX chose HID Mobile Access, which enables employees to easily and securely open doors in the company’s offices using their smartphones or wearable devices, such as the Apple Watch. Employees use HID Global’s patented ‘Twist and Go’ feature or simply tap their smartphone on the HID Global readers to access the building or other sensitive entrances within the offices. With the HID Global Mobile Access app, which holds the digital credentials, employee and visitor passes can be issued within minutes.

The solution has enabled the company to streamline its access control processes, thereby reducing administration costs and saving money. This is because it is very simple to issue, manage and revoke mobile IDs to smartphones and wearables.
