Norway’s Nationwide Postal Service chooses HID Global for Advanced Access Control Solutions

•	Company’s physical access control solutions enable employees to use multi-functional cards for a variety of applicationsHID Global’s multiCLASS SE readers and multi-technology cards selected by Norway Post

HID Global yesterday announced that its physical access control solutions have been deployed by Norway Post to provide toddpostal service, Norway Post deployed Genuine HID® multiCLASS SE® readers and multi-technology cards at its Robsrud Terminal, from where more than 60 percent of all the mail in Norway is handled.

To address their employees’ needs, Norway Post was seeking a fast, secure and convenient card solution that was interoperable with different types of card readers. The organization wanted to implement a multi-functional card for applications beyond access control. In addition, Norway Post was looking to deploy an access control system that would enable them to seamlessly migrate from existing legacy technologies to more advanced technologies.

“Now we have a multi-functional card that can be used for secure access control, discounts on railways, payments in canteens and even for access to vehicles,” said Arnfinn Nordheim, Security Director with Norway Post. “In addition, the solution has improved our security and lowered our costs, since it is much easier to replace a card than a key if you lose it.”

“Our goal is to deliver an extraordinary customer experience our customers have come to expect,” said Volker Kunz, Director of Sales, Europe with HID Global. “Our access control migration solution enables Norway Post to benefit from multiple possibilities around secure identities today and also provides them a future proof solution ready for new requirements they may have in the future.”

From a business perspective, HID Global’s standard  iCLASS® and HID Prox credential provides a single-card solution that also resulted in significant cost savings.  Additionally, it can be easily integrated with Norway Post’s existing access control system, allowing for seamless migration from magnetic stripe cards to contactless smart cards.

Norway Post extended its relationship with HID Global through the deployment as they were confident that HID Global was the only trusted and credible organization that could fulfill their stringent requirements. As a result of another successful implementation, HID Global is continuing to strengthen its relationship and future collaboration with Norway Post.
