Explore benefits of physical and mobile ID co-existence in this on-demand webinar
Every government and enterprise card issuer has likely heard the question, “Can I get that ID card on my mobile phone?”
The debate over when to start issuing mobile credentials in place of plastic cards has raged for nearly a decade, yet this year more physical ID cards will be issued than any year prior.
The card is clearly not dead but the mobile is enhancing both security and convenience.
If you issue physical cards you should consider issuing a mobile ID at the same time, because you are adding a lot of value and preparing for the future
“The physical ID is not going away … its easy to deploy, its already in place, it’s the incumbent but at the same time, the whole world is going mobile,” says Dominic Tavassoli, VP Secure Issuance Solutions, HID Global. “There are many reasons behind the need for co-existence … citizens want choice as to whether they want a physical or mobile credential.”
In this webinar, SecureIDNews’ Gina Jordan talks with two leaders from HID Global about their experience working with hundreds of issuers who have been facing these questions.
Dominic Tavassoli is joined by Steve Warne from the company’s Government ID Solutions unit to share insight into a third option. It is not card OR mobile but rather card AND mobile working together. And they say it’s the option that best meets the needs of government issuers around the globe.
“Whenever you issue physical cards you should start thinking about issuing a mobile ID at the same time, because you are adding a lot of value and you are also helping prepare for that future change,” adds Tavassoli.
