Integrated access control system manufacturer Inner Range has announced customers with Concept systems should now migrate swiftly to Integriti as Concept has reached End of Life.
Award-winning Integriti is compatible with 95% of Concept hardware so migrating is easy, efficient and extremely cost-effective at only a fraction of the cost of an entire system replacement.
Concept technology no longer economical
Inner Range first announced Concept was nearing End of Life in January 2019. Some Concept parts are still available to buy and Inner Range is currently continuing to provide technical support for existing customers, repairing or replacing parts from existing stock or suitable alternatives as necessary.
Concept was our flagship product, first launched in 1989, so it’s had a good innings"
However, the system’s underlying technology is no longer economical to maintain in comparison with modern platforms like Integriti. The manufacturer is now urging customers to migrate before parts become obsolete. Concept systems use Insight software. Insight follows the same End of Life timeline as Concept.
Migration path for Concept users
Tim Northwood, General Manager at Inner Range, said: “Concept was our flagship product, first launched in 1989, so it’s had a good innings and we remain very proud of its legacy. But we gave notice 18 months ago that Concept was reaching End of Life and we are renewing our call for any remaining Concept customers who have not yet migrated, to move to our Integriti system.”
“We’ll continue to provide technical support for Concept users where we can. But eventually we’ll reach a point where it’s no longer possible to source suitable parts so we want to help customers secure their systems for the long term.”
“Integriti is a brilliant product for small, medium and enterprise spaces and offers a very cost-effective migration path for our Concept customers.”
