HID Global announced that it was selected by Jakarta-based service office provider, Werkspace Indonesia, to power its access control system. The solution allows several hundred users to access their co-working space conveniently and securely.

Established in 2017, Werkspace — which operates four offices in Jakarta — currently serves both startups and established businesses who need professional, reliable and secure working space. These four locations comprise 5,500 square meter floor space in total and include private offices, virtual offices, meeting rooms, dedicated desks, co-working hot desks and event areas.

“Every day we have a lot of clients and customers that come in and leave from the office, making a secure access system a very important criteria to Werkspace,” said Jessica Sa’ied, Werkspace community manager. “Thus, we require a robust, secured and trusted solution that is able to deliver this benefit. HID Global’s Seos credential technology allows us to quickly and easily grant or revoke building access for a new set of people on a regular basis. The system also provides insights on client traffic in our buildings, which is value information for our expansion plans and new centers in the future.”

Alex Tan, director of sales, ASEAN, physical access control with HID Global, said that the Seos smart cards are ideal for co-working spaces like Werkspace that require high security and nimble ID management in cases where building access needs to be granted and revoked for a new set of people on a regular basis. “HID’s Seos smart cards provide the ideal mix of security, mobility and flexibility for any organization. Powered by highly advanced encryption and a software-based infrastructure, it secures trusted identities on any form factor and can be extended for applications beyond physical access control,” he added.

“Indonesia has a vibrant start-up sector, with the co-working business leading the charge. While a strong spirit of collaboration exists, secure access to the workspace is also an important consideration. By using HID Global’s access control system, we have been able to achieve this, allowing our clients to access Werkspace facilities conveniently and securely,” Sa’ied said.
