Cincinnati, Ohio, November 13, 2007. Middleware Associates announces today that they have sold more than 200 licenses for their Edge Responder IP-reader access control solution since April of this year. Edge Responder software works with the HID Global's EdgeReader/EdgePlus devices which were officially introduced in March, 2007.
â€œWe have enjoyed phenomenal growth and adoption of our Edge Responder solution because of its simplicity to setup and configure the software and hardware using the HID Edge devices, as well as the tremendous cost advantages that the Edge technology provides to end users. In addition to our growing dealer/integrator base of resellers, a major retail franchisor has adopted our Edge Responder solution and is migrating from their legacy access control systems in over 400 of their existing retail locations to our Edge Responder solution while keeping their existing readers and cards. In addition to installing more than one Edge Responder system per day to meet their migration needs, this customerâ€™s rapid growth is saving them tens of thousands of dollars over their older solution. With over 1200 retail franchise locations now sold and more than one new storefront added per day, Edge Respondersâ€™ built-in import utility via Microsoft Excel is providing a simple migration from their legacy system,â€ commented Gary Sheldt, General Manager of Middleware Associates.
â€œNow that the HID EdgeReader/EdgePlus devices are commercially available, we are enjoying the sea-change in customer acceptance of the â€œEdgeâ€/IP-reader technology over traditional access control systems, much as the video surveillance marketplace has witnessed in the tremendous growth of IP video systemsâ€, noted Sheldt.
Edge Responder software is available in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish languages currently. Interested parties can view a demo of Edge Responder online at www.middleware-associates.com
