Birmingham and Gloucestershire, UK — 30 July, 2014
–– ENTERTECH SYSTEMS
and G4S Technology
have announced a technology partnership that combines ENTERTECH SYSTEMS identity management and Suprema biometrics with G4S security solutions, providing a robust offering to UK customers. ENTERTECH SYSTEMS is the official operating partner for Suprema Inc. in the United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
G4S Technology is one of the foremost innovators and supplier within the security industry providing fully integrated Access Control, Video Management, Life Safety, Perimeter Protection and Alarm Management Systems. Providing an end to end solution, G4S Technology designs, develops, manufacturers, installs and maintains systems protecting small offices and colleagues through to complex government facilities and high security environments. Symmetry is the advanced Access Control and Video Management system from G4S Technology and is used by millions around the world on a daily basis.
“This new partner relationship fits perfectly with our own focus on excellence in technology and customer service,” says David Ella, VP of Technology and Marketing at G4S Technology. “With UK-based support from ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, our installers and customers can easily tap into the benefits of sophisticated Suprema biometrics.”
The integration of Suprema biometric devices
and the ENTERTECH SYSTEMS BioConnect application with Symmetry
provides more efficient, user-friendly access control for G4S customers. Instead of having to manage badge records in two different systems (one for the access control panel and another for the biometric templates), BioConnect
seamlessly syncs users between the two systems. Using a simple enrollment window, they can search for a user/badge and add biometric templates.
Designed for organisations of any size and suitable for all applications, Symmetry
delivers the latest technology in a proven, scalable, fully integrated system which can be managed from one easy to use software application. Unlike some other security systems, Symmetry features a wide range of advanced applications as standard including Visitor Management, Badge Production, interactive Graphical Maps as well as the most comprehensive Access Control solution
with Anti-Passback and all the other features that would be expected by large organizations.
“Like us, G4S Technology understands the growing need to maximise efficiencies and reduce costs for customers through leading innovation and truly responsive customer service,” says Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. “We look forward to working with them to deliver next-generation biometric access control to the UK market.”
The Suprema line of biometric devices, which includes fingerprint detection, card and PIN readers and ENTERTECH SYSTEMS’ BioConnect
application, is now available through G4S Technology. Applicable Suprema biometric readers include BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net and BioMini.
