Connecting Buildings & People

Buildings or sites with existing or future Nedap access control systems can now benefit from integration with Forge Bluepoint visitor management to give people visiting their space smart, secure and time-limited access.

The new integration was customer-driven by international workspace provider, HB Reavis’s new building in Bratislava, Slovakia, Nivy Tower, which went live in November.

Wayne Lee, Director at Forge, says:

“We’re excited about this partnership and being able to offer our customers with existing or future Nedap access control the benefit of our smart access visitor management solution. Deployment is simple and quick. It takes the worry of security away from the customer – for both planned and unplanned visitors to their building.”

Wesley Keegstra, Integration Manager at Nedap, says:

“Where Nedap adheres to a first people then technology philosophy, Forge Bluepoint creates an amazing visitor experience. Even though the integration was customer-driven, Forge Bluepoint managed to deliver a flexible, user-friendly, and high-quality integration, which is accessible for all customers looking to bring a whole new visitor experience into their security. I’m looking forward to this partnership and the benefits we can bring to our customers.”

How it works

Invites sent by Forge Bluepoint will have a unique QR code generated and matched using credentials from the Nedap access control.

This QR code can be used to check-in at reception and scan to pass through turnstiles or speed gates into the building, or the reception team can issue a physical access card or visitor pass, time-limited to the visitor appointment.

This smart access ensures the security of the building is maintained and real-time visibility of people within the building is available for the reception teams or building management in Forge Bluepoint.

In an emergency, this means an accurate evacuation list can be downloaded or in the case of an illness, the people in the building at the time of possible transmission, can be contacted.

In the current climate, an additional benefit is that people visiting a building can have an utterly contact-free experience from start to end.

A strong partnership

Forge and Nedap both have a robust customer-centric approach to delivering solutions for customers that are not just technology, but people-driven.
