Witten, 2018: Progressive digitalization is not stopping at the security industry either. Until recently, the keyword only meant upgrading cameras to the next highest number of megapixels. Today’s software solutions such as our visitor management system JAMES offer groundbreaking new possibilities for customers and employees.
metaSEC Managing Director Lukas Ziaja explains: “Digitization primarily means using the possibilities of modern information and data compression. We are concerned with process-oriented thinking and exploiting the full potential of digital possibilities. In recent years, for example, we have worked closely with security service providers throughout Germany to further develop our software solutions and adapt them to the needs of the security industry. On the one hand, we use existing data from access control, cameras or other hardware and software solutions and bundle them centrally in our visitor management.
The central administration of all channels and data represents the greatest benefit for security staff. Now it is possible to control and monitor all processes from one system. This has always been a problem, especially with the use of various devices from a wide variety of safety technology manufacturers. JAMES bundles this information in one place and can be used with a wide variety of access control solutions, for example”.
In addition to the manufacturer-independent connection and evaluation of external systems, our visitor management also combines numerous functions that are essential for the daily work of security and service personnel. The aim here, however, is not to establish a control centre at reception, but merely to give staff access to the data relevant to them.
