credentials while offering compatibility with existing cards.

Mobile Applications for Education

Here are just a few of the ways that mobility delivers a clear advantage in safety,
security and productivity:

  • Identity Access Management – Use WAVE ID® Mobile readers with integrated Bluetooth® technology to eliminate usernames and passwords. Access records, transcripts and equipment checkout with a quick wave versus time-consuming logins.
  • Contact Tracing – Educational institutions at all levels are using mobile readers as a critical element in their proactive contact tracing efforts. Positive cases can be traced from school bus to classroom or lecture hall to cafeteria, streamlining efforts to mitigate spread.
  • Time & Attendance – Automatically and accurately capture faculty, student and staff credentials to analyze arrivals, departures, or breaks. Know who’s participating in special events or logging into hourly timesheets.
  • Smart Waller – Give students, faculty and staff a fast and convenient way to login and pay for cafeteria/on-campus restaurant items, health club memberships or other on-premise services.
  • Training – Securely and effortlessly track employee attendance at required academic training sessions, seminars or mandatory events.
  • Secure Print – Use smartphone credentials to provide simple, powerful protection against unauthorized access to confidential student records and other important data found on network-connected multifunction printers.
