HID Global,  is driving innovation for securing Internet of Things (IoT) applications that are opening new opportunities across numerous markets. The company’s expanding range of proof of presence, brand protection and asset tracking applications add trust to Near Field Communications (NFC) transactions, creating new paths for HID Global partners to develop solutions that would otherwise be vulnerable to risk or simply not possible. The portfolio of identification innovations exemplifies the company’s NFC continuum, an initiative to broaden the use of HID Trusted Tag Services and NFC tags.

“HID Global has been at the forefront of enabling new applications that leverage NFC tags for data gathering, data analysis and digital marketing over the past several years,” said Mark Robinton, Director of Business Development and Strategic Innovation with HID Global.

“Continuing our journey of NFC solutions innovation, HID Trusted Tag Services are pioneering novel use cases, such as electronic visit verification (EVV), time-and-attendance and other burgeoning IoT applications that are fundamentally changing the way organizations conduct business.”

The company has a solid track record of collaborating with partners to champion successful pilots and deployments of breakthrough solutions that securely connect users to verify a person is where they said they are, enable small data analytics for promotions, improve processes and enhance security:

  • HID Global partner Dial-N-Document integrated HID Trusted Tag Services into a web-based documentation system that interfaces with the services for a secure EVV solution. NFC Trusted Tags placed in the homes of Integrity Home Care patients provide proof of presence and visit documentation for mobile clinicians.
  • Partnering with Tamoco, HID Trusted Tag Services powered the first out-of-home (OOH) campaign for Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Film fans “tapped” promotional posters 8,195 times with 1,156 unique mobile devices, enabling real-time engagement and performance of the campaign.
  • HID Global’s award-winning RFID tag and NFC solution, in partnership with system integrator Fundacion Ada Byron (FAB), replaced a cumbersome, outdated tracking and employee payment system for picking grapes at Bodega Norton Winery in Argentina.
  • Latest innovations, partnering with MyTAG Ltd, include security industry applications, such as key management, proof of presence, time and attendance and lone worker solution programs.

“Our partnership with HID Global has empowered MyTAG to develop innovative NFC-based solutions that boost safety and security processes in key management, lone worker and guard tour programs practices,” said Mike George, Managing Director of MyTAG Ltd. “Our industry-leading solutions replace antiquated paper-based processes, improve accuracy by reducing human error, and provide real-time tracking and reporting, while monitoring keys and the safe return of employees for greater peace of mind to businesses and their employees.”
