IDIS and Swift Fire & Security sign partnership agreement at IFSEC

1 Sep 2015

Swift Fire & Security set to increase margins by standardising on end-to-end networked DirectIP™ surveillance from IDIS

IDIS and Swift Fire & Security, one of the UK’s leading independent fire safety and security service providers, today announced and signed a strategic partnership agreement during IFSEC International, at London’s ExCel.

Established in 1982, Swift are highly experienced systems integrators providing installation and maintenance of both fire and security systems across the UK’s largest public and private sector organisations. Swift maintains a large national network of multi-disciplined engineers, proficient in fire life safety systems and in electrical, mechanical and networked security systems that encompass surveillance, intruder, access control, lighting and building management systems.

Installing over £1.4M of security systems a month, Swift Fire & Security wanted to increase profit margins by streamlining the networked surveillance systems they offered to just three manufacturers. Swift recognised that some IP manufacturers were delivering poor technical support and regularly had diluted product availability, while some systems were proving difficult and complex to implement and commission.

In early 2014, Swift began evaluating a number of network surveillance solutions and one that impressed was DirectIP™ from IDIS. Packaged as an end-to-end solution, comprising a range of cameras, monitors, network video recorders (NVR), network accessories and comprehensive VMS, DirectIP delivered the plug-and-play simplicity of installation and high performance that Swift were looking for.

The reliability and video data integrity DirectIP offered, together with an intuitive user interface, simple maintenance requirements, low power consumption and a bundled VMS with no annual licence fees, also met with the security and low cost of ownership requirements demanded by Swift’s end user customers.

Tony Bates, Security Director at Swift Fire & Security, commented, “We carefully evaluated IDIS DirectIP™ against a number of other IP systems and quickly realised that it offered us what we were looking for in terms of functionality, performance and simple plug-and-play installation as well as providing every element required to implement a complete network surveillance solution.

“In addition, we were equally impressed with the excellent local technical support, locally warehoused stock, and customer service that the IDIS team could provide. Having made our final decision to make DirectIP one of our network surveillance offerings, it made perfect sense to sign the official partnership agreement here at IFSEC, the home of security solutions.”

Jamie Barnfield, Senior Sales Manager at IDIS Europe, added, “We’re thrilled to sign and announce this agreement at IFSEC with the atmosphere and excitement of the show. This year IDIS is presenting its most comprehensive total surveillance solution to date--with DirectIP at the heart of that offering. One of the top security systems integrators in the UK, Swift Fire & Security are also one of the most established and well-respected in the industry. To have the Swift team validate IDIS and DirectIP here on the IDIS stand at IFSEC, is truly a great honour. We’re very much looking forward to supporting and working with the Swift team moving forward.”
