VCredential is a cloud-based credential management platform that offers users the ability to create and manage Bluetooth credentials independent of the access control
platform. It’s key benefit focuses on intuitive usability and the opportunity to benefit from the latest industry technology trends.

1. The system administrator sends an invitation email to the end user which contains a 6-digit alphanumeric activation code.

2. The end user downloads the VI mobile ID app and enters the activation code.

3. The end-user then uses the credential (via the app)when approaching doors with Vanderbilt BLE readers to gain access.

How Bluetooth can benefit you!

  • SAVE TIME & MONEY: Mobile credentials are time and cost-effective alternatives to managing physical credentials.
  • CUSTOMER CONVENIENCE: Bluetooth removes the need for a physical credential and replaces it with a virtual credential for smartphone devices that provides customers with a smooth user experience.
  • SECURE: Data encryption with 128bit AES encryption and randomization. This encryption is the same grade used by banks and hospitals.
