CARMEL, Ind. — Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies (IR) has joined the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP) as a Silver partner. The collaboration will help IR promote the use of its aptiQmobile Web-based credential management system on Samsung Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled smartphones.

“This is a big breakthrough for organizations hoping to leverage NFC-enabled smartphones as security credentials,” says IR Director of Technology Alliances Diane Kehlenbeck. “Samsung is one of the world’s leading smartphone providers and, as such, is very important to the future success of phone-based access control credentials.”

To turn a Samsung smartphone into an access control credential, users can download the aptiQmobile app from IR’s Web site. Users can open the app and tap their phones to the aptiQ smart reader on the wall in the same way that they would present an ID badge to a card reader.
