HID Global has entered into an agreement with RedCloud, a provider of Web-based physical access control systems, to enable the company to resell HID’s EasyLobby Secure Visitor Management software.
The deal is part of a solution that encompasses RedCloud’s line of access control network appliances, including RedCloud Enterprise and RedCloud Virtual.
The integration enables RedCloud end users to grant different levels of access to visitors, contractors and employees from the EasyLobby visitor station. When a visitor or contractor is badged using the software, the information is automatically passed from the EasyLobby database to the RedCloud security management software, and the visitor badge is activated in real-time.
The RedCloud system is immediately notified and the card is deactivated when the visitor checks out of EasyLobby. This integration provides the ability for enterprises of all sizes to secure their facilities, people and assets across multiple offices, buildings or locations.
“Enabling lobby attendants to handle the badging process for visitors or contractors directly from the front desk helps create a more secure and efficient method of managing the issuing process,” said Jeff Ross, RedCloud’s vice president of product management.
