HID Global is Named a Leader in 2021 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global” Report for Second Year in a Row

AUSTIN, Texas, March 4, 2021 – HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced it has again been positioned in the Leaders quadrant in the most recent Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global” report.

“We are proud to again be named a Leader in a Gartner’s 2021 Magic Quadrant,” said Mark Robinton, vice president of IoT Services with HID Global. “HID® Location Services, including the latest Workplace Safety solution for contact tracing and physical distancing, continues to demonstrate the benefits of investing in a single, unified infrastructure to solve multiple business challenges. Widely adopted by Fortune 500 companies for managing building occupancy, optimizing office and facility space, tracking assets and monitoring equipment health,  HID Location Services has become increasingly valuable across a growing range of new and existing markets and use cases.”

HID Location Services for Workplace Safety leverages the solution’s Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) HID BEEKS™ Aware fobs that alert employees when they are closer than 6 feet (2 meters) for a specified period for digitized physical distancing management. The solution also includes a contact tracing application that uses the same HID BEEKS Aware fob or a BEEKS badge/badge holder that is easily added to existing ID cards. This provides a full digital trail of an employee’s whereabouts and historical interactions while at work, enabling rapid response to cases so isolation procedures can be activated as needed.

According to the  Gartner report, “Vendors in the Leaders quadrant will have demonstrated an ability to fulfill a broad variety of customer requirements through the breadth of its indoor location service solution. Leaders will have the ability to provide complete and differentiating capabilities as part of their indoor location offerings. This includes global service and support. Leaders should have demonstrated the ability to shape the market, maintain strong relationships with their channels and customers, and have no obvious gaps in their portfolios.”
