Sept. 27, 2006 â€“ Whitby, Ontario Canada â€“ Keyscan, Inc., the well respected supplier of advanced access control products, introduced the ultimate enterprise solution at ASIS International this week . A combination of its innovative Keyscan Enterprise Program for exceptional systems integrators and its new Vantageâ„¢ software product, the teaming provides the finest product, installation and support solution ever made available to enterprise users. Despite the elevation of standards, the Keyscan Enterprise Program still supplies an impressive return on investment and low life cycle costs.
The Keyscan Enterprise Partner Program has been specifically developed for high performing access control integrators. A Certified Keyscan Enterprise Partner undergoes rigorous Technician Training and Certification and an equally rigorous Sales Professional Training and Certification. The Partner is fully supported by Keyscan with an arsenal of business tools that include unique software such as Vantageâ„¢, exclusive hardware functions, extensive marketing support, sales presentations, etc. Partners also participate in the Keyscan Enterprise Partner Executive Council where they provide input on engineering design and development and engage in enterprise networking sessions for improved professionalism.
Keyscan developed the program in response to industry requests. Steve Dentinger, Marketing Manager for Keyscan said, â€œDealer integrators asked for an exclusive, enterprise wide access control solution with expanded features and functionality. After much dealer and integrator consultation we have delivered. Our Keyscan Enterprise Partner Program combined with our partner exclusive Vantageâ„¢ software marks a shift in what a truly scalable and integration friendly access control system is meant to be.â€
Industry history has shown that, often, such specialized programs are softened or neglected over time. Keyscan has totally embraced the program by installing a dedicated Enterprise Program Manager. It is this individualâ€™s responsibility to insure that the program benefits and features remain robust and that the program evolves and improves over time. It is this dedication and commitment by Keyscan to its partners that set this program apart from any other.
The new Vantageâ„¢ software provides advanced features essential for large enterprise flexibility and scalability. Besides the myriad of standard access control features, such as user selectable languages, e-mail or cell phone alarm alerts, interactive maps, etc., Vantageâ„¢ includes highly specialized but critical functions that make this the most complete enterprise product produced. These essential features include scheduled backups, a disaster recovery function, multiple communications methods and other tools just too numerous to list.
Vantageâ„¢ is a totally integrated enterprise solution that encompasses modules such as photo badge creation, photo verification for positive identification and a visitor management module for positive control and tracking of all personnel visiting a userâ€™s facility.
CCTV is also completely integrated into the Vantageâ„¢ solution. Both traditional and IP based cameraâ€™s can be utilized along with many major manufacturer DVRâ€™s (Digital Video Recorders). Whether the CCTV platform is RS232, Web-enabled or DVR, Keyscan includes these camera-action and image retrieval features:
