Connected Technologies Streamlines Management and Enrollment of Conekt Mobile Credentials Within Connect ONE®

Dealer/integrators who purchase Conekt mobile credentials and readers from their physical access control system manufacturers can use the supplied mass importation spreadsheet to seamlessly import mobile credentials into Connect ONE.

Enrollment is simplified since administrators have an easy dropdown selection to assign a mobile credential to a new user. Once assigned, the associated card number is automatically programmed into the system and a message is sent to the user with instructions on how to obtain the Conekt Wallet App and activate their credential.
