Access control data for business efficiency and optimisation

SMART Access & Identity 2023 Access Control & Identity Management

The shift to integrated technologies has brought with it huge advances for end users. For many Gallagher Security customers, our Command Centre solution is one of the critical systems where reliable operation is vital to business performance.

Through analysing access control data, customers can reduce energy consumption and save money thanks to integrated building and site management systems. They can also create efficiencies and protect data through integrated access control, payroll and HR systems. Site visibility can also be improved by integrating state-of-the-art video surveillance with an intelligent site management system.

As an example, one of our manufacturing customers requires robust access control security where staff must badge to not only gain entry to the facility, but also enable the piece of machinery they are assigned to. In this case, the physical access control system is critical to achieving manufacturing targets.

The customer also created integrations to many of their other business systems. Active Directory ensures that staff details are automatically loaded into the access control system and linked to the provision of access privileges to operational areas.

A REST API connection to Command Centre sends information about staff beginning their shifts to the manufacturing system. This allows early highlighting of absentees that will impact production.

High-value integrations can dramatically improve the accuracy of data, reduce the cost of the many compliance requirements for staff, and reduce the burden for administrators.
