Griffith University upgraded their Gallagher security integration platform to Command Centre v6.10
It's not often end users express too much emotion about their security systems but Australia's Griffith University say they absolutely love their recently upgraded Gallagher security integration platform.
Griffith University has upgraded their Gallagher security integration platform (formerly Cardax FT) to Command Centre v6.10 and installers say it all went without a hitch which is impressive considering the project included an impressive 308 Gallagher field Controllers upgraded in record time - 1hr 15 mins.
When asked what they liked the most about Gallagher Command Centre v6.10, the response was a resounding "Couldn't tell you, there's so much good stuff here."
Griffith University have been using a third party system for E-mail & SMS notifications for alarm management across all their 5 campuses for several years, and have recently replaced it with the Gallagher Notifications feature.
Gallagher Technical Account Manager, Mike Margrain, received an SMS from Griffith's Gallagher system Administrator that read, "Loving Notifications. So much more powerful, flexible and seamless than our previous system."
The major driver behind changing to Notifications was the ability to email internal clients advising that their card is about to expire. "This has been one of the major client challenges over the past few years and Notifications has solved this problem and a lot more."
Several reports can be generated on a recurring schedule and automatically emailed to the intended recipient
The new Notifications feature supports the ability to notify individuals via email or text message of events, alarms or imminent expiries, as they occur within the Gallagher system. Flexible subscriptions allow individuals to subscribe to the particular events of interest to them and optionally, to schedule when they want to receive those notifications.
In addition, several commonly used reports can now be generated on a recurring schedule and automatically emailed to the intended recipients. The Notifications feature provides email or text messaging capability for distribution of information from the Gallagher system to any number of external people. Customers can choose from many ‘email to SMS' service providers globally. Some providers offer advanced features, such as linking the inbound text message with the original outbound text.
Obviously Gallagher Security is delighted with Griffith University's reception of Command Centre v6.10.
Mike Margain notes, "It's fantastic feedback to get from a customer, particularly one of this size who has something to compare it the new features to."
