In just a few short years, the island of Singapore has transformed into a global leader in business, technology and finance. Today, the nation is home to all kinds of developing practices and hardware, putting it on par with many of the world’s other major cities. With a strong government push behind the Smart Nation initiative, Singapore has indeed come a long way in terms of harnessing technology to solve issues and execute its business efficiently.
Smart access control is the future of the modern office, and it’s quickly becoming an integral part of Singapore’s business environment. Access control systems are used to ensure that the only people who enter a facility are ones who are meant to be there, and these systems can use a variety of methods to both verify the identity of visitors and grant them access to the building or protected asset. It’s both easy and effective, making the technology a favorite of many new, up-and-coming ventures. In Singapore, a number of recent developments have increased the visibility and popularity of access control in the business world. After all of this rapid development, it’s only natural for offices and other facilities to get a tech upgrade too. From overhead lights to coffee machines, many offices are already equipped with smart technology, and it’s time for your doors and locks should be able to catch up.
Launched in 2014, Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative, mentioned above, is a massive, ongoing effort meant to improve the island’s business and technology practices, along with the quality of life of its inhabitants. In essence, the project is meant to launch the nation into a new phase of development, one that is even more rapid and sustainable than its growth in previous years. Access control fits into this initiative incredibly well, and many of the businesses that are growing or have been attracted to the city are using its power to improve both safety and productivity in the workplace. These workplaces include businesses like DBS Bank, information technology giant NCS, management consultant Logicalis and Singapore Power.

Another huge champion of access control in Singapore has come from a new source: coworking. WeWork, the New York-based coworking juggernaut, now has 10 locations around Singapore, all of which offer space to freelancers and small teams who are looking for on-demand office space that differs from the traditional office park style. To make sure that only authorized guests are allowed inside each space, the coworking company uses automated access control systems, which rely on credentials given to clients. Thanks to this technology, WeWork and other coworking spaces can make sure that their customers are allowed entry to the building only when they should be able to enter, without having to worry about security staffing or over-the-top monitoring.
