AUSTIN, Texas, April 5, 2017 – HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced it has received the Most Valuable Product (MVP) award from Security Sales & Integration (SSI) magazine for its new HID Location Services solution that was unveiled at ISC West 2017.  The company’s new solution for workforce optimization provides organizations visibility into the location of their workforce in a facility, making it possible to analyze room usage for better building management and increased operational efficiency. The offering was acknowledged as the top commercial access control solution in the MVP award’s Access Control category.

“We are honored that HID Location Services has been recognized for its leading workforce optimization capabilities that deliver deeper analytics around the movement of personnel in buildings to optimize facility usage, plus address a number of customer security challenges,” said Harm Radstaak, Vice President and Managing Director, Physical Access Control Solutions with HID Global. ”Our new solution goes beyond typical indoor positioning service offerings to provide robust location services that are easy to deploy and manage, while also enabling organizations to incorporate a broad range of additional security and building management capabilities in the future.”

HID Location Services is enabled by Bluvision, a company recently acquired by HID.  The solution  includes a cloud service, portals and Bluetooth beacons in the form of HID smart cards, providing a one-card solution for both indoor positioning services and physical access control.  Future use cases can extend beyond workforce optimization to include building automation capabilities, and features that increase security to facilitate life safety management and compliance.
