HID introduces WorkforceID cloud platform

1 July 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

HID Global has announced its new WorkforceID platform that enables a seamless, effortless experience when using identity credentials to access physical and digital workplaces at an office, in the field or on the road.

The new ISO27001-certified identity cloud service platform simplifies how employees access what they need to do their jobs, while solving workplace and visitor security, regulatory compliance and a variety of new business challenges as employees are returning to work.

WorkforceID inherits the best capabilities from the enterprise-grade HID SAFE physical identity access and visitor management software, and combines them with deep customer insights from over 250 organisations around the world, to make a generational leap in unified identity management. It brings a completely digital and turnkey deployment for administrators, and removes the complexity of installing, configuring and supporting on-premise software. For employees, contractors and visitors, it provides a convenient user experience with several streamlined digital workflows, such as visitor self-check-in and rules-based access to buildings and IT resources according to employees’ modified work schedules.

“WorkforceID solves many of today’s identity management challenges and will also offer unique services to address evolving and specialised work environments, from expediting hospital visits and healthcare worker onboarding to accelerating workplace security audits,” said Brad Jarvis, vice president and managing director of Identity & Access Management Solutions (IAMS) at HID Global. “We will continue to launch exciting new applications with our WorkforceID platform that will support a growing family of trusted identity solutions for workplaces.”

Its first two available services are employee ID badging and visitor management:

• HID WorkforceID Credential Manager and ID Badge Issuance: Automates badging across the identity lifecycle including cloud-based onboarding, card printing and offboarding. Administrators know the details of all active credentials, at any location.

• HID WorkforceID Visitor Manager: Improves the visitor experience through reduced wait times and the ability to use self-service badging kiosks. Administrators can customise the visitor experience and security measures while benefiting from automated policy compliance.

HID will be adding more tools, features and applications to the WorkforceID platform to deliver deep analytics and reporting capabilities and meet the rapidly expanding credential management requirements of today’s increasingly connected workplaces.
