HID Global announced it has been selected by CityPoint to streamline security and management systems for its 35-story office building in London.

In partnership with MyTAG.io, HID Global’s cloud-based services and Near-Field Communication (NFC) tags were deployed.

This will automate CityPoint’s paper-based system for tracking 220 physical keys; improve their security guard patrol of 295 checkpoints; and create a better solution for auditing billable contractor hours.

For the new cloud-based system, HID has combined MyTAG.io’s security management software with HID Trusted Tag Services.

CityPoint’s overall goal of the new system was to maintain the highest security standards to protect CityPoint staff, tenants, guests and assets.

HID soloution allowed CityPoint to deploy the solution using their existing IT infrastructure along with standard NFC-enabled smartphones, tablets and NFC USB readers.

“HID Trusted Tag Services enables secure proof-of-presence with frictionless cloud authentication, which is the ideal match for commercial and private real estate properties,” said Mike George, managing director of MyTAG.io.

“With full integration into MyTAG.io, the opportunities are limitless to deploy proof-of-presence and other trusted NFC capabilities throughout CityPoint as their business needs continue to evolve.”
