Case Study - Multinational Corporation (MNC) Campus Solution

A global MNC wishes to increase the utilisation of their facilities. With over 1000 buildings across 200 global locations, the real estate portfolio is a vital component to their balance sheet and of their global competitive advantage.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, utilisation of their sites dropped by over 50%. In response the MNC decided to create co-location open office spaces, inviting third party businesses, organisations and individuals to “rent” the under-utilized spaces.


Target 1

Self registrations

Target 2
Increase facility utilisation

Target 3
In-app revenues

MNC Objectives

  • Drive a higher level of utilization by opening facilities to 3rd party tenants and sub-contractors.
  • Deploy a hyper-secure, contactless and scalable identity management solution for access management.
  • Create new revenue-generating opportunities.
  • Be able to rapidly scale and replicate the solution globally.

The Solution

Folio deployed a Mobile Wallet solution to enable all visitors and contractors to pre-register to gain access privileges. Using Folio ID-Pass and Advanced Biometrics, secure Identity Verification (IDV) is determined before the issuance of visitor passes.

Once the IDV process has been completed the Building Management Software issues a secure time-based access pass to the verified individual with all sensitive data stored on the user's own device.

Working with 3rd party door access and security systems, the visitor can use their smartphone to open doors or to verify their credentials on request. This replaces the need for paper or plastic passes as well as streamlining registration, issuance and security procedures.

With Mobile Wallets now being a fundamental part of visitor management and access control journeys, additional in-app user experiences and revenue streams have become available. For example pre-ordering food, pay-as-you-use meeting rooms and parking permits.
