Badge In | A Hack Day Project

Badge In | A Hack Day Project

Introduction
In 2016, I participated in the first Design Hack Day and came up with a project to solve our campus badging issues. Though this is not the project I submitted, I spent an extra couple of days to work on a digital solution for the problem.


Overview
There are more than 12,000 people who visit LinkedIn campuses across the world on a daily basis and 20% of them are visitors. All doors within campuses are secured by a badging system that allow employees access to all doors as long as they have their badges with them. Visitors, on the other hand, are only granted a nametag with their information on it.

Problems
• Employees forget / break / lost their badges all the time
ª Visitor badges that are largely distributed on a daily basis are not environmental friendly

Solutions
• A secondary badge for employees that live on their smart devices
• A digital badge for visitors that will give them access to main areas like the cafe and will expire after 24 hours (Ideally, all the door system will be replaced with a scanner that scans through digital badges.)

Target Audience
• Employees (full-time employees, interns, contractors, cafe worker) 
• Visitors (cafe visitor, interview candidate, business meeting)

Initial Sketch
I quickly put together a couple of sketches and wireframes on how I envision the app is going to function.

Project Scope
A mobile app that grants access to employees and visitors to doors at LinkedIn campuses. This app serves as a secondary badge for full-time employees, contractors and interns who frequently forget or lost their badge. Visitors can also use this app to check-in when visiting LinkedIn campuses for various purposes. Simply scan the unique code on the reader at each door to open.
