Access Control: HID OMNIKEY mobile reader and HID Seos smart card solution By HID Global

Finnish company UPM operates 54 production plants and employs more than 19,000 people around the world. It needed a way to identify the large number of employees that arrived together at its Fray Bentos facility in Uruguay each day using company-sponsored shared transportation services. When the buses arrived at the main checkpoint 1.5 km from the UPM plant, employees had to exit the bus, form a line and pass through a turnstile before re-boarding the bus and completing their trip.

To resolve a long list of issues, integrator Alutel Mobility recommended that UPM deploy a solution featuring its mobile devices with built-in HID OMNIKEY smart card readers and HID Seos smart cards. This integration now allows UPM security staff to enter the corporate buses transporting its employees and quickly and efficiently verify their identities.
