Through the standardized interfaces, Nexus Smart ID is compatible with most systems for physical and digital access.

The Nexus Smart ID helps organizations securely digitize their identities. “We would like to thank the editors of Funkschau as well as all the readers, who voted for Nexus Smart ID as the ICT product of the year 2018,” says Volker Kunz.
