The catch is how to effectively manage the safety and security of your staff and assets alongside what are often highly flexible access requirements. Gallagher’s integrated security solutions combine personalized access control with building management systems and smart reporting, so you can focus on the benefits of reduced costs, more efficient use of resources and enhanced sustainability.
Safety and security
When was the last time you were in the office outside of the traditional 9-5? Flexible working hours and hot desking results in access requests at all times of the day (and night). You need to be able to trust that only approved staff members have access to the car park, storage facilities, and office space.
The Gallagher security system provides 24/7 access control of who is where, and when. Action on Access allows a receptionist to grant staff members temporary access to a specific area. Gallagher's Visitor Management Kiosk takes care of visitor access, with automatic notification to the host, when the visitor arrives.
Mobility is king when it comes to shared work environments. Gallagher’s Mobile Connect SDK allows your business app to request access at a reader and perform actions like arming or disarming. Remote issuing of credentials to mobile devices also reduces the time and cost associated with managing cards.
Having a locker solution is key to a successful activity-based work environment, where nobody has their own desk. Gallagher’s Locker Management Solution allows you to manage locker access and allocation in a way that suits your people and culture.
Full utilization of your locker resource is made easy, via short term expiry. For example, lockers can be allocated for 2 hours only, providing better availability of your locker resource.
Gallagher's smart reporting lifts the lid on the nitty gritty of resource allocation and use. You can run an audit on who's using what and when. Access to rooms, laptops, printing and other resources can be flexibly managed from one system.
Sustainable business practice
We’re all looking for better ways to do business when it comes to the environment. Lighting, air conditioning, ventilation and heating that automatically turns on and off when a space is in use or with room bookings can reduce energy use and save costs. St Peter’s School saved 14 per cent on energy site-wide using Gallagher Command Centre and BACnet.
People's Choice Credit Union is using Follow Me Printing in its modern workplace. Tracking printing costs and metrics of 650 staff through the use of card authentication at the printer has significantly reduced paper waste.
One solution to rule them all
The demand for smart, convenient technology to facilitate great workplace experiences will continue to grow. Gallagher's highly integrated access control solutions offer one system to manage all aspects of a safe, secure and sustainable workplace environment. One system that grows with you, means you're always ready for the next leap in workplace evolution.
