HID and Inner Range extend partnership with new readers

HID® has announced an extended partnership with Inner Range which will offer Inner Range customers a new range of SIFER credentials compatible with wallet-enabled readers, leveraging HID’s signature line of access control readers, HID Signo®.

“The sheer opportunity to further deepen collaboration with our partners excites us. Mobile access is rapidly becoming a dominant force in reshaping the physical access security industry, and we are glad to be able to extend the mobile access in wallet solution to Inner Range to solidify its position as an integrated access control solutions provider globally,” said Steve Katanas, Regional Head for HID Physical Access Control Solutions, ANZ.

Katanas added, “Inner Range customers will get all the benefits of adding mobile credentials in Apple or Google Wallet (and other OEM wallets in the near future), designed for the future of workplace. I’m excited by the potential of this technology partnership, as we continue to collaborate on future projects, enabled with HID’s secured, sustainable and future-proof identity solutions.”

By leveraging HID’s wallet-enabled readers, Inner Range enriches its reader product portfolio.
