Employees working at landmark city of London building 22 Bishopsgate are now able to add their employee badge to Apple Wallet. This will allow employees and staff in the building to gain access to offices with their iPhone or Apple Watch, no physical card required.

The introduction of employee badge in Apple Wallet is one of the first to debut in the UK at 22 Bishopsgate.

Smart building technology provider Smart Spaces and digital identity provider HID Global have teamed up to introduce the digital employee badge for Apple Wallet. Once an employee badge has been added and activated within Apple Wallet, users can hold their device near a door’s NFC-enabled reader to immediately access secured areas. Employees don’t need to unlock or wake their device to use the employee badge. Multi-platform QR access will remain available to those that require it.

Using the privacy and security built into iPhone and Apple Watch, when or where a 22 Bishopsgate employee uses their employee badge in Apple Wallet is never shared with Apple or stored on Apple servers. If their iPhone or Apple Watch is misplaced, the owner of the device can promptly use the Find My app to lock the device and help locate it.
