Integration drives significant operational efficiencies for facilities management and security teams, while enhancing security across campuses and multi-site estates

Maxxess, a global corporation specialising in the access control sector and recognised for its extensive integration capabilities, has unveiled RemotePoint, an advanced eFusion module that allows remote access control and verification through the Maxxess eFusion security management platform. Seamlessly integrated with ambit, the company’s revolutionary mobile workforce management solution, the integration of the two technologies is driving operational efficiencies across both facilities management and security operations.

Using handheld devices, RemotePoint allows security personnel to perform access control transactions anywhere, verify staff credentials and perform mustering in the event of an emergency. Already utilized by oil and gas plants and universities, RemotePoint allows organisations to establish instant access points where traditional access methods are expensive or infeasible.  Empowering security operatives to perform spot checks and confirm workers with the right skills are permitted to be in certain areas, RemotePoint gives first responders information at their fingertips to ensure a rapid and appropriate response to incidents.

When coupled with the patented, cloud-based technology, ambit, the two technologies act as force-multiplier to drive operational benefits.  ambit enables real-time visibility into personnel location status to improve and streamline facilities management and security operations. With staff checking in on arrival at work via smartphones or onsite located tablets using RemotePoint, security and facilities managers are provided with complete real-time visibility of staff locations on a map, so they can assign tasks, request status reports from individuals, select groups or an entire team, and effectively direct resources to maximise efficiency.   

Particularly suited to large facilities management teams and multi-site manned guarding, ambit provides a cost-effective time and attendance tool.  Heat maps and automated reporting supports routine security operations such as guard tours, at the same time providing an accurate record of events for compliance. Using a database of reports and message traffic, facilities and security managers can also utilise ambit for forensic analysis and training to ensure continuous service improvement.

Commenting at the show, Lee Copland, Managing Director EMEA at Maxxess, said, “The integration of RemotePoint and ambit enables organisations to drive significant operational efficiencies, particularly those with dispersed estates operating large facilities management teams such as hotels, retail malls, industrial facilities and large corporate enterprises.

“In addition, we’re enhancing the safety of staff as ambit features powerful lone worker protection functionality, enabling users to summon security or first aid assistance via a simple tap on their mobile devices. Pinpointing the exact location of where help is required, security teams are able to initiate a fast and appropriate response and dispatch responders where help is needed most.”
