SAN ANTONIO, Texas â€“ June 27, 2006 - MDI, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDII), the leading manufacturer of Unified Technology solutions for the security industry, today released a case study based on their successful business partnership with Freightliner, LLC, a DaimlerChrysler Company. Based in Portland, Oregon, Freightliner employs over 26,000 people at sites across North America.
An MDI customer since 1993, the company has standardized its security operations and management around MDIâ€™s ONE Unified Technology platform. With ONE, Freightliner maintains centralized command and control of their entire North American operations. By unifying MDIâ€™s SAFEnet access control and alarm management software, MDIâ€™s VIEWpoint video surveillance solutions and a variety of third party security products, the Freightliner security team gained uninterrupted, secure and redundant multi-site situational awareness.
â€œMDI offers a horizontal platform which allows us to quickly integrate just about anything we want into it,â€ said Jeff Githens, owner of Abel Communications and lead security system designer for Freightliner. â€œMDI offered the only system that met Freightlinerâ€™s comprehensive security requirements, which included support for multiple sites and unlimited scalability,â€ he added.
