Powered by SwiftConnect and Wavelynx, company badges in digital wallets allow employees and tenants to access Austin’s smartest building with a simple tap of their mobile device. 

STAMFORD, Conn. – March 13, 2024 – SwiftConnect, a leader in connected access enablement, and Wavelynx, a provider of interoperable and secure access solutions, today announced that Stream Realty Partners’ RiverSouth has launched the use of company badges across all major digital wallets for seamless NFC access at the smartest building in Austin, Texas. RiverSouth employees and tenants can now add their company badges to Apple Wallet, Google Wallet, or Samsung Wallet and use their iPhone, Apple Watch, Android device, and Galaxy Phone to conveniently and securely access the building’s parking garage, elevator destination dispatch kiosks, smart lockers, and amenities, including the gym.

“We aim to give the people at RiverSouth the most appealing experiences that enrich their digital-first lifestyles, while delivering the ‘cool factor’ of using a smartphone or smartwatch to access our building with remarkable ease,” said Eric Herron, Managing Director of Development and Construction at RiverSouth. “Making NFC access available in digital wallets from all of the major providers is an innovation that will change the way everyone can navigate our corporate building and spaces.”

Mobile credentials are provisioned to digital wallets using RiverSouth’s App available for download from the App Store and Google Play. The use of an iPhone, Apple Watch, Android device, or Galaxy Phone enables access transactions that are safe, convenient, and secure. Mobile credentials in digital wallets also remove the need and burden for employees and tenants to carry and use a plastic ID card, which can easily be lost, stolen, or spoofed. RiverSouth can issue mobile credentials remotely to a user’s device, eliminating the need to print physical cards for a more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable alternative for access management.

“Our connected access capabilities provide RiverSouth with the ability to seamlessly integrate all of the business systems used for physical access to create a delightful user journey, improve operational efficiency through remote and centralized management, and enhance security,” said Matt Kopel, co-CEO of SwiftConnect. “The beauty of SwiftConnect’s AccessCloud platform is that it integrates with a building’s existing readers, access control systems, and identity technologies to bring on-demand and self-service mobile access experiences to employees and tenants of trophy buildings and major corporations worldwide.”

Wavelynx and SwiftConnect collaborated with a broad ecosystem of partners to ensure 100% mobile use case support throughout RiverSouth. The parking garage is equipped with credential readers from rf IDEAS, interior and exterior doors are controlled with Wavelynx readers, and the RiverSouth locker room is outfitted with state-of-the-art smart lockers by Vecos. SwiftConnect integrated all the hardware and solutions to work seamlessly with RiverSouth’s access control system and Wavelynx credentials.

“We’re proud to be a part of the first deployment of all major digital wallets to provide a great experience for users at RiverSouth,” said Rob Lydic, President of Wavelynx. “The deployment leverages NXP’s MIFARE technology to deliver an intuitive, private, and secure access transaction when a user presents their smartphone or smartwatch to a Wavelynx or supported device. This is a perfect example of the type of interoperability and choice that Wavelynx provides via our reliable readers, versatile credentials, and extensive partnerships.”

The introduction of corporate badges in the RiverSouth mobile app is part of Stream Realty Partners’ and QuadReal’s dedication to optimize cost, improve the building environment, and create unparalleled user experiences.
