HID named in Gartner leaders quadrant 2020

Austin, Tx (USA)

HID Global has been positioned in the leaders quadrant in Gartner’s 2020 “Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global” report. This is the first year Gartner has placed a company in the leaders quadrant of this report. HID Global was identified as a challenger in Gartner’s 2019 report.

“We believe being named a leader in this segment of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant showcases our momentum in a rapidly expanding market and flexibility within our product and solutions portfolio,” said Marc Bielmann, Vice President and Managing Director, Identification Technologies with HID Global. “We are committed to addressing our customers’ core location services challenges around asset tracking, employee safety and security, and location analytics. HID’s broad hardware portfolio and flexible implementation strategies also drive additional value by allowing customers to build upon a unified infrastructure investment to efficiently solve multiple business problems.”

According to Gartner’s 2020 report, “…evolving and complex use cases are driving requirements in both new and existing markets. Infrastructure and operations leaders should evaluate vendors based on their ability to meet multiple end-user indoor location opportunities and to address new relevant usage scenarios.”

HID Global has addressed many of these use cases by expanding its Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon offering in the past year with badges and fobs for distress, man-down or emergency situations, disposable wristband beacons for healthcare patients, and small, low-cost mini-beacons for one-time or limited functions. The company’s growing portfolio enables customers to support applications in smart buildings, healthcare and hospitality, as well as oil and gas and other industrial markets.
