The access control and identity product company, HID Global, will showcase its HID Location Services for Workforce Optimisation for the first time in Europe at IFSEC 2017. The show runs from June 20 to 22 at London Excel; the firm is exhibiting on stand E1250.
HID Location Services for Workforce Optimisation is new; designed to address what the company terms a growing market need for real-time location of a workforce. By combining the Internet of Things (IoT) with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Wi-Fi and cloud-based storage, organisations can gain visibility on the location of their workforce in a facility. This makes it possible to analyse room use for better building management and more operational efficiency it is claimed. Future use cases can include building automation, and for life safety management and compliance, the firm adds.
Harm Radstaak, Vice President and Managing Director of Physical Access Control at HID Global, said: “As the latest addition to our portfolio, HID Location Services extends the traditional capabilities of access control to improve security and area governance within buildings. This new solution underscores our commitment to developing innovative trusted identity solutions that power people, place and things.”
