Cell C gets access management system

October 2002 News

CS Holdings has implemented the KeyMaster Pro 3.1 access management system at Cell C's new regional offices in Cape Town. "KeyMaster Pro makes it easy for Cell C to set up and maintain large access control and asset security systems," says CS Holdings director Carl Blake.

"The system ensures that only valid employees and cardholders are allowed access to the premises and helps secure highly sensitive equipment. It also provides full offline access control, a multilingual interface and site-wide data synchronisation."

"We awarded the contract to CS Holdings based on their superior technical capabilities, black empowerment statistics and competitive pricing," says Gareth Rule, contracts specialist - procurement and contracting, of Cell C. "The system has certainly made our premises less susceptible to shrinkage and potential security problems."

Designed for Windows NT and Windows 2000, KeyMaster Pro has the same look-and-feel as popular office applications. "We can customise and place toolbars conveniently to create a user interface that suits our way of working," says Rule. "When we log in, the system retrieves our personal settings and configures the interface according to our preferences."

Other features include streamlined data management and reporting, a suite of companion applications and a robust hardware infrastructure. According to Blake, the open architecture of the KeyMaster Pro system makes it easy to extend functionality by integrating with other security sub-systems and enterprise management applications, such as the Kronos Time Management system which Cell C plans to install at a later date.
