RF IDeas Expands Badge Reader Portfolio to Support Mobile Credentials


ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., March 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RF IDeas, Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of in-building identification and access control readers, today announced its pcProx(R) Plus BLE is now compatible with the Orange Business Services Pack ID mobile credentials, expanding the company's reader offering to include mobile applications.

The pcProx Plus BLE reader combines the innovative RF IDeas dual-frequency card reader platform with Bluetooth(R) low energy technology. The reader has widespread use in healthcare and other industries for applications such as e-prescribe and beaconing for indoor location and asset tracking. In addition to being compatible with Pack ID, the pcProx Plus BLE now offers a truly mobile secure authentication solution for logical access.

According to Gartner, 20 percent of organizations will be using their smartphones instead of physical access cards by 2020. "As mobile credentials increasingly are used for logical access and authentication, it is a natural evolution for the RF IDeas reader portfolio to expand into mobile credential readers," said David Cottingham, President of RF IDeas. "With a leading global presence and solid record of technology innovation backing both RF IDeas and Orange, the Pack ID mobile credential reader takes secure authentication for logical access to a new level for our customers."

"We are very proud to be partnering with RF IDeas to provide a proven, secure and easy to use solution," said Philippe Rozes, Deputy CEO of Orange Applications for Business. "Pack ID offers an easy and smart way to transition card based credential management systems to a true digital and mobile experience."

The Pack ID mobile credential provides secure, yet simple, access to digital services. By virtualizing traditional cards and badges, the Orange Pack ID mobile credential solution easily integrates into existing card systems used for logical access and authentication while enabling multiple applications such as enterprise access control, mobile wallet for cashless vending, and parking or car sharing, among others.
