Scan-X Security solutions will help protect high profile patrons and visitors to the National Assembly

Scan-X Security, specialists in security screening, security x-ray machines and metal detection archways, landed a deal to secure the National Assembly of Wales in order to protect high profile patrons and visitors to their main site.

The Aldridge based security firm operates globally and has invested over £250,000 over the last twelve months following year on year growth with turnover increasing by 30% in the last year.

Complete security solution

Rob Wallader, Managing Director at Scan-X Security said, "We are very proud to have been contracted to secure such a high profile site as the National Assembly of Wales. We were chosen due to the high quality of x-ray machines and metal detection archways we provide and also because our experience enables us to provide a complete solution that also makes life easy for both our client and site users. For example, in addition to installing security equipment, we also provided a tray return system to save our clients work and also put in place wheelchair access through the security screening area for those visitors who require it.

"Although we are well placed in our market and regularly supply security machinery for the likes of: government contracts, facilities management, asset protection & large scale events, we pride ourselves on delivering a personal service to all of our clients - something which is making us stand out in our market".

Nuctech 6040 x-ray machines

To secure the Welsh Assembly site, Scan-X Security installed three Nuctech 6040 x-ray machines. These are dual view machines, which take images of whatever is being screened in two different directions. Providing two views of items that are being screened gives the security operatives a better picture of what's inside and therefore a greater chance of spotting potential threats. In addition to installing x-ray machines, Scan-X also supplied three metal detection archways from leading brand Ceia, whose products you would normally see in airports.

As well as priding themselves on their extensive range of security products, the Scan-X team boast a wealth of experience in the security industry as a whole, and have supplied machines to some of the UK's largest sporting events, AGM's, facilities and conferences.

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
