The challenge

Futureproof access control

The university was looking to replace its existing access control set-up with a system that would allow digital IDs to be used. They wanted a futureproof system that can flex to their needs and has the proven capability to integrate with ID badge management and student information on their existing access control database. It was also important to be able to migrate this data to the new system with limited downtime.
