HID in partnership with Smart Spaces, and Cohesion reimagines the connection between people, systems, and buildings. The trio have announced the availability of mobile credentials in Google Wallet, allowing users to access buildings, spaces and systems with their Android devices.

Adding mobile credentials in Google Wallet gives employees, tenants and guests easy access to everyday spaces and business systems, using their Android phones. They now have a secure, mobile credential to open a door, access an elevator or release a print job, simply by holding their Android phone near a reader.

“We are thrilled to partner with Smart Spaces and Cohesion to provide their customers and users with a convenient, secure wallet experience on Android phones. By adding mobile credentials in Google Wallet, users can access everything from turnstiles and elevators to certain floors on a building to computer and printer networks,” said Sanjit Bardhan, VP of Mobile, HID. 

“At Smart Spaces, providing our customers a seamless user experience is extremely important. Adding mobile credentials in Google Wallet does this exactly. We’re very excited to partner with HID to be among the first to offer this to our customers,” said Dan Drogman, Chief Executive Officer, Smart Spaces.

Thru Shivakumar, Chief Executive Officer, Cohesion, shared, “Being one of the first in North America to partner with HID to deliver mobile credentials in Google Wallet sets a new benchmark for seamless and secure access solutions. We are thrilled that this launch will debut at the Ion, Houston’s largest innovation hub. Together we are not only creating a smarter environment but also shaping the future of how we interact with our spaces.”

With mobile credentials in Google Wallet, company badges can be distributed remotely across organizations to reduce spending on physical cards, printers and administrative space.
