AUSTIN, Texas, March 25, 2019 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced that Bluvision™, a part of HID Global, was named in the Challengers quadrant of the Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global. 

Adoption of location services is projected to increase from less than 10 percent today to more than half of all enterprises worldwide within three years. According to Gartner, “By 2022, 65% of enterprises will require indoor location asset tracking (both people and equipment) to be part of all access layer infrastructure communications decisions (up from less than 10% today).” 

HID Location Services, enabled by Bluvision, is ideal for organizations that want to implement an architecture that supports multiple use cases from asset tracking to workplace safety. 

“To us, being named to the Gartner Magic Quadrant proves once again that Bluvision is a major player in location services,” said John Sailer, Chief Operating Officer at Bluvision, part of HID Global. “Bluvision’s value proposition for enterprise customers is compelling from high accuracy and flexibility to low cost of ownership, uniquely giving customers a way to locate workforce and assets with the same infrastructure.  No other vendor can do what we can do for location services – all accomplished with our portfolio of beacons and blufi gateway form factors.”
