World-leading aerospace company Avolon selects HID Mobile Access
Employees at one of the world’s largest aircraft leasing companies now use their mobile devices to access Avolon facilities in Dublin, New York, Florida and Hong Kong offices.
Founded in 2010, Avolon is the third largest aircraft leasing company in the world with 824 aircraft and 145 customers in 62 countries. Avolon was looking for an innovative, flexible solution that could be personalized to individuals, easily accessed and managed remotely. Additional requirements included: the need to provide different levels of security clearance in different areas of the building, the ability to manage individual security clearances, the facilitation of access outside of the usual work day, and secure parking lot access for employees and visitors. As a global company, Avolon wanted a solution that could be deployed worldwide to provide a consistent experience for its employees, regardless of their location.
HID partnered with Ireland-based systems integrator Summit Security Systems Ltd to deploy the HID Mobile Access solution and HID readers throughout Avolon’s Dublin campus. Mobile IDs are sent to Avolon staff via an app on a user’s Android or iOS mobile device so they can quickly and easily use their phones to gain access to Avolon facilities.
“Avolon’s use of HID Mobile Access makes touchless access control possible for a more seamless user experience, which is appealing to many organizations in the today’s new normal,” said Harm Radstaak, Vice President and Managing Director of Physical Access Control with HID.“The scalability of our solution also lays the groundwork for Avolon to easily extend mobile access across more of its facilities.”
Following the successful deployment of mobile access at its Dublin headquarters, Avolon has also launched the HID Mobile Access solution at its New York, Florida and Hong Kong offices, with plans underway for its Singapore campus.
