"For us, the most important aspect in the mobile key, in addition to being digital, is that it's very easy to use. You no longer need keys or access cards. Because this is a pioneering solution, we wanted to have a partner that can not only provide the technical solution but also to build a new kind of implementation on a tight schedule. We wanted a partner that we can genuinely trust. IDcontrol has provided all of this and we are extremely happy with our cooperation," says Technopolis Chief Information Officer Risto Kivisilta, who’s in charge of the mobile access project.
