aptiQmobile Now Included in the Samsung Solutions Exchange
Allegion, a global provider of security products and solutions, announced that it has become a member of the Samsung Solutions Exchange, which helps Samsung customers by creating holistic mobile solutions on a robust portfolio of enterprise-grade Samsung mobile devices. aptiQmobile, a web-based credential management system, allows NFC-enabled Samsung smart phone customers to use their Samsung smart phones just like card-based ID badges for access control and other smartcard applications.
“Allegion’s membership to the Samsung Solutions Exchange enables organizations to leverage aptiQmobile as part of their mobile solution,” emphasized Diane Kehlenbeck, Allegion director of technology alliances. “With aptiQmobile, Samsung customers can now use their NFC-enabled Samsung smart phone in a new and innovative way.”
The Samsung Solutions Exchange delivers a range of third party offerings that increase productivity and ROI, including but not limited to sales and management applications, mobile device management solutions, cloud services, collaboration tools and security solutions – all designed to make it easier for enterprises in the era of mobile business.
To turn an NFC-enabled Samsung smartphone into an access control credential, a secure, mobile credential is created by the aptiQmobile cloud service and sent directly to the user’s phone. Once the mobile credential and aptiQmobile app are downloaded to the phone, the user taps the smartphone on the reader in the same way one presents an ID badge.
“We look forward to working with Allegion to provide business customers a differentiated solution that leverages the NFC technology on Samsung Mobile devices for credential authentication,” said Nick Rea, director, business innovations group at Samsung Mobile. “Adding Allegion’s offering to the Samsung Solutions Exchange will better equip our enterprise customers for success in the new era of mobile business.”
