Wavelynx and SwiftConnect Win the SIA New Product Showcase Award for Industry’s First Corporate Badge in Google Wallet Deployment

WaveLynx Stand: 5/G122

STAMFORD, Conn. – April 17, 2024 — SwiftConnect, the leader in connected access enablement, and Wavelynx, a provider of interoperable and secure access solutions, today announced they are winners of the 2024 Security Industry Association (SIA)'s New Product Showcase Award for Identification Management and Credentialing for their joint market launch of corporate badge in Google Wallet.

The companies partnered to be the first to deploy the solution at Stream Realty Partners’ RiverSouth Austin. From parking, exterior doors, and elevator kiosks to interior doors, amenity spaces, and smart lockers, tenants and employees with Android devices can now utilize the self-service, on-demand provisioning capabilities of NFC wallets, powered by SwiftConnect and Wavelynx.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for expanding the security industry to the mainstream market with corporate badge in Google Wallet. Through a culture of interoperability and products that lead the market in performance, customer adoption is reaching a feverish pitch,” Robert Lydic, President of Wavelynx.

SwiftConnect’s connected access integration platform, coupled with Wavelynx mobile credentials and readers, empower tenants and employees with seamless access based on their permissions, aligning with the digital lifestyles individuals seek to bridge their personal and workplace experiences. Administrators benefit from leveraging their existing IT and access control systems to streamline and centralize access management for increased operational efficiencies.

“This award reinforces the power of SwiftConnect’s AccessCloud integration platform, which leverages customers’ existing infrastructures to deliver a delightful, hassle-free access journey to Android device users. We are incredibly honored to be the first to now bring connected access to virtually anyone with a mobile device with our launch of corporate badge in Google Wallet,” said Matt Kopel, co-CEO and President of SwiftConnect.

Since its inception in 1979, SIA NPS has been the security industry’s premier product awards program. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience, and in 2024, following significant deliberations, the 31 judges presented awards for technologies covering 30 product and service categories.
