Żabka, a convenience store chain with 7000 locations across Poland and the Czech Republic, is known for its innovative approach and early adoption of unique technological solutions. As part of their plans for a new headquarters in Poznań, Poland, the organization wanted to go beyond a traditional building access control system. They aimed to create a modern, intelligent, and automated office for their employees, enabled by one integrated solution. This system would need to utilize mobile identities and a custom application to simplify the use of office functionalities, accelerate and automate administrative processes, and optimize the management of access control and building-wide security. The creation of such a large ecosystem would need to combine many different functionalities, and Żabka turned to a group of like-minded providers to create and implement their vision.

This system would need to utilize mobile identities and a custom application to simplify the use of office functionalities, accelerate and automate administrative processes, and optimize the management of access control and building-wide security.
HID Global, Zonifero, and Cnergy collaborated to create a comprehensive ecosystem by digitizing access control processes and integrating surveillance tools such as closed-circuit television and access management with an anti-burglary system. The heart of the system is a server with a security management platform, enabling Żabka to add new users quickly and issue mobile IDs permanently or QR code based, one-time passes for guests. Today, a smartphone application is all employees need to move around the HQ office and use its various amenities. Mobile identities, contactless employee onboarding, touchless visitor management, time and attendance, and integration with the security system of the entire building are all facilitated within the app that launched in 2020. The application also performs other tasks that assist users and create a better work experience, such as communication with colleagues, office navigation, meeting space booking, control room temperature and humidity, and interaction with employee engagement initiatives.
