I make stuff with my computer. Currently making stuff at LinkedIn.

In Badge | A Hack Day Project

In Badge | A Hack Day Project

Introduction

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
  • 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.
