Why Universities Are Opting for Mobile Credentials

By: Alejandro Medina, Regional Sales Manager Andean Region (Latin America)- RBH Access Technologies Inc.

Every day, more institutions adopt mobile credentials to access and utilize various services. Education is one sector where this transformation is gaining significant momentum, particularly in universities, where mobile credentials offer numerous benefits.

Benefits of Mobile Credentials in the Education Sector:

  1. Convenience: Mobile credentials allow students, faculty, and staff to access buildings, services, and events simply by using their smartphones, eliminating the need to carry physical cards.
  2. Integration with Other Services: Mobile credentials can integrate with other campus services, such as cafeteria payments, library loans, and event access. In different cities worldwide, there are integrations with transportation systems, library networks, and institutional services, creating a unified and seamless experience for users.
  3. Reduced Risk of Fraud: Mobile credentials include advanced security features, such as biometric authentication (fingerprint or facial recognition), which reduces the risk of unauthorized use. Additionally, since mobile devices are essential for daily communication and consultation, students and faculty are less likely to lend them out or leave them behind.
  4. Ease of Replacement: In case of loss or theft of the phone, mobile credentials can be quickly deactivated and reassigned to a new device without the need to wait for a physical card. Students and staff can also request or reactivate their credentials remotely, which is particularly useful for those participating in distance education programs or with special mobility needs.
  5. Sustainability: By not requiring the issuance of physical cards, the carbon footprint associated with transportation, printing, and other supplies is significantly reduced. Mobile credentials are a more eco-friendly option, as they decrease the use of plastic and other materials used in the manufacture of plastic cards.
