Galaxy Control Systems, a provider of integrated access control and security solutions, is featuring its recently launched Cloud Concierge Access Control solution this week at their booth (#2241) at ASIS 2017. Galaxy Cloud Concierge is a complete turnkey, cloud-based, fully hosted and managed access control and monitoring solution that includes professional 24/7 management and supports industry standard access technologies. Available in three configurations, Cloud Concierge provides users and integrators alike with unrivaled versatility and efficiency.
“We’ve had a tremendous reception to our Cloud Concierge solution since its introduction earlier this year,” said Rick Caruthers, Executive Vice President, Galaxy Control Systems. “For both the user and the reseller, the advanced access control and monitoring capabilities provided by Cloud Concierge are easy to implement and operate, while accommodating a wide variety of budgets and needs.”
Galaxy Cloud Concierge is available in three configurations:
- Option one is an on-site, user-managed, cloud-based system. The customer purchases (or leases) the equipment from an authorised reseller/integrator who installs the system and provides training.
- Option two is a remote cloud-based, user-managed integrated system. Equipment is purchased (or leased) from an authorised reseller/integrator who installs the hardware and provides training. The reseller hosts the integrated system with Galaxy System tools, including the mobile apps, and the user manages the activity.
- Option three is a remote cloud-based, reseller/integrator managed integrated system. Equipment can be existing or new, and the reseller both hosts the system and manages the activity.
Cloud Concierge includes AES encryption to secure data, and multi-layered filtering/partitioning allows the end user to access only their information (cardholders, access groups, hardware, etc.), while the service provider can have full access to all customers. The Launchpoint cloud client is the user interface for the Cloud Concierge system.
High-value service offerings for integrators
Services such as Cloud Concierge present significant opportunities for integrators looking to grow their business with high-value service offerings that target access control challenges. It also offers a significant competitive advantage for monitoring centers, as they can easily add access control to their portfolio of monitored services.
“Integrators who have joined the Cloud Concierge program quickly realise that they can focus on what they do best rather than trying to become access control experts and provide end-to-end solutions themselves,” adds Mr. Caruthers. “Conversely, end users are reassured knowing that they have the support of Galaxy Control Systems and a trusted integration partner to deploy, administer and maintain their access control system so they can devote their time and energy to core business operations.”
