Broomfield, CO [February 2023] – Wavelynx Technologies Corporation, a leader in open, secure and interoperable access control solutions, today announced support for employee badge in Apple Wallet on iPhone and Apple Watch.
With employee badge in Apple Wallet, users will be able to simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch to a WaveLynx reader to perform tasks from unlocking office doors and securely printing documents to accessing vending machines and much more – eliminating the added step of opening an app or fumbling to find their physical employee badge. With Express Mode, users do not need to unlock or even wake up their device to use their employee badge — they can simply hold their device to a reader. If an iPhone needs to be charged, users can still use their device to access their office or amenity areas for up to five hours with Power Reserve.
“We are thrilled to provide our Wavelynx customers with a truly frictionless mobile access solution by offering employee badge in Apple Wallet. Not only is this impactful for the end-user, allowing them to utilize their iPhone or Apple Watch to gain access to their office spaces, but administrators will also benefit with the ability to distribute or revoke keys in a matter of seconds in a safe and secure way.
At Wavelynx, we provide our customers with a platform that is both easy to implement and manage, that maintains a high level of security and that is built with the future in mind – this added solution is a natural continuation." Robert Lydic, President of WaveLynx Technologies Corporation
