Brivo surpasses one million mobile credentials worldwide

Bethesda, Md

Brivo, a global leader in cloud-based access control and smart building technologies that recently entered into a definitive merger agreement with Crown PropTech Acquisitions has announced that it has surpassed 1 million Brivo Mobile Pass mobile credentials worldwide.

Mobile access credentials allow people to open doors, gates, and turnstiles using just their smartphone, which makes navigating spaces in offices, gyms, garages, schools and other places in the built world more convenient.

“The accelerated growth we’re seeing in mobile access control is unlike anything we’ve seen in the industry to date and our innovative smart access devices continue to be a key differentiator enabling us to capitalise on this strong demand,” said Steve Van Till, Founder and CEO of Brivo. “Being able to open doors with your phone is the access experience everyone wants these days. Brivo Mobile Pass gives customers an easy way to quickly send digital credentials to anyone that needs them. We believe it’s an essential ingredient of a comprehensive platform so that customers can do everything they want in a single application.”

Mobile credentials are enjoying growing success in the market because they are more secure, easier to manage, and more cost-effective. They are convenient because people have their phones with them all the time, unlike physical cards or key fobs which are easily lost or forgotten. The pandemic has accelerated mobile credential adoption by increasing the demand for a remote, contactless way of enrolling new people into access control systems. As a result, employers now view mobile credentials as an important tool in their return-to-work transition strategy. In addition to the convenience and safety benefits, the cyber security of mobile credentials is a big draw for IT departments because it is based on the same techniques they use for other corporate information assets — encryption, multi-factor authentication, and the built-in biometric capabilities of mobile platforms such as Face ID or Touch ID.

Available on both iOS and Android, Brivo Mobile Pass means no more lost keys, keycards or plastic fobs. Employees, tenants, and residents can easily open doors with their phones. Brivo Mobile Pass automatically finds the nearest door and opens it through Bluetooth connection with Brivo Smart Readers. Mobile access control also takes advantage of the latest IOS and Android capabilities such as using voice commands and creating shortcuts so users can customise their experience.
