Johnson Controls adopts Orsus

September 2008 News

Johnson Controls and Orsus have announced a strategic alliance which will see the two companies deliver a situation management solution that leverages Orsus’ situation management software, Situator, and Johnson Controls’ integration strength and expertise as well as additional security solutions.

As part of the alliance, the two companies are working together to offer situation management solutions to corporate clients worldwide and within the government market. Through its safety and security division, Johnson Controls has delivered integrated security solutions to over 50 000 companies worldwide in a variety of markets, including transportation, healthcare, financial services, government, education and manufacturing.

Gilad Chitayat, director of sales at Orsus says Situator connects multiple areas, products and platforms, whether CCTV, fire or access control and delivers situation messages to a central interface. The product is graphically driven to make it simple to use and offers a comprehensive reporting capability to allow management to streamline and improve control room performance.

Neil Cameron, systems divisional manager at Johnson Controls Systems & Services in South Africa notes that Orsus was chosen as a partner after a global strategic investigation into the future of various security products and solutions. “Johnson Controls realised that future customers would demand integrated solutions that were independent of any particular technology or brand. Orsus fits this profile.”

Situator was launched at Securex 2008 and according to Cameron received positive feedback and interest from attendees.
