Mobile ID technologies are helping enterprises big and small adapt to massive changes brought about by ongoing business trends. Remote work, the gig economy, shared workstations, and short term contracts are all adding momentum to the wave of digital transformation washing over society. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated these trends, pushing offices into a digital environment to enable social isolation and distancing measures. With so many new ways to work, it’s more important than ever that employers and employees have the strong foundation of trust built on irrefutable identity technologies.
Access control, time and attendance, digital onboarding, and cloud technology all fit under the umbrella of enterprise mobile ID solutions, as do larger Identity and Access Management (IAM) platforms. Uniting physical and digital identity paradigms, mobile ID technologies bring security to offices and virtual work places, protect businesses against fraud, and ensure efficient and accurate records keeping in line with new privacy regulations like the European Union’s GDPR or the range of new legislation in the Unities States dedicated to protecting personally identifiable information (PII).
Mobile ID technologies cut down on IT costs, eliminating passwords (and therefore password resets). They help verify remote worker identities, and protect virtual company assets form impostors. They are flexible and scalable, removing the burden of legacy workforce management systems and creating better business through low friction user experiences, strong authentication, and trust.
