Broomfield, Colorado, [June 26, 2023] - Wavelynx, a leader in secure and interoperable reader and credential solutions, today announced the expansion of their NFC Wallet portfolio in collaboration with Google, to bring access credentials to Google Wallet™ across Corporate Badges and Student IDs. This means no more plastic cards or photo IDs to remember and manage.
With access credentials in Google Wallet, users will now have fast, secure access to their everyday essentials all at the convenience of their Android device. Access credentials in Google Wallet allows users to keep everything protected in one place, no matter where they go. In partnership with Wavelynx, Android users can simply present their phone to a Wavelynx reader to gain access. It’s that simple.
“Expanding our NFC Wallet solution with Google is truly a game changer for our customers. With the ability for users to utilize their Android device to access things like offices, secure areas, parking garages, elevators, as well as cost-related activities such as printer access or making purchases at onsite cafeterias, we are simplifying the user experience while also providing enhanced security with the device itself.” - Robert Lydic, President of Wavelynx
