Building Intelligence, global provider of cloud-based visitor, vehicle and vendor management software, SV3, has announced that they will be exhibiting at the 2019 Global Security Exchange, Sept. 8-12, at McCormick Place in Chicago. They will be showcasing a variety of new features designed to further streamline the visitor check-in process and enhance employee access management. SV3 cloud-based software SV3 now offers a completely new portal to provide access for new employees SV3 now enables employees to replace a lost or forgotten badge directly at a kiosk with the touch of a button, and automatically ensures the security of that credential by immediately deactivating any previously-issued badges. By integrating with clients’ LDAP/AD and access control, SV3 automatically verifies the individual and their access level and can print temporary or permanent badges on the spot. In addition, SV3 now offers a completely new portal to provide access for new employees, alleviating redundant paperwork and the chasing of approvals. When hiring managers enroll new employees, SV3 sends their information to all necessary systems for approvals. The new employee will then receive a temporary badge in their email, enabling immediate access to the building upon arrival where SV3 will automatically create the access control record with the appropriate levels. Visitor management system The new updates also now allow users to schedule visitors through email calendar invites. No need to sign into SV3 Visitor. Previously registered visitors will be automatically sent an invite and new visitors will receive an additional registration page if more information is required for check-in. “SV3’s new feature set provides a secure efficient process for credentialing visitors and employees who have lost or need an access card in a site visit,” said Jeffrey Friedman, CEO, Building Intelligence. SV3’s new feature set provides a secure efficient process for credentialing visitors and employees" “SV3 acts like a cost-effective staff and contractor management solution automatically verifying and deactivating badges, without touching multiple siloed systems; saving time, money and resources. We look forward to further showcasing these features and the expanding scope of visitor management to GSX attendees.” GSX 2019 GSX, formerly the ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits, brings together security professionals from a wide range of vertical markets, providing unique opportunities for networking and learning. Building Intelligence will be showcasing updates to their cloud-based software, SV3, in booth 1889 of the security exhibit.
SV3, the cloud-based visitor, vehicle and vendor management system from Building Intelligence, has received SAFETY Act Certification, the highest level of accreditation awarded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for anti-terrorism technologies, making it the only visitor and vehicle management solution to achieve this level of federal recognition. “By using technology to secure loading docks and parking garages, as well as providing a smart method for managing vehicle access to secure areas, the SV3 platform from Building Intelligence enables the protection of people and property – the very core of DHS' mission,” said the Hon. Dr. Thomas A. Cellucci, former and first Chief Commercialisation Officer of the Executive Branch of the United States. Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology Specifically, all three major components of SV3, the visitor, vehicle and vendor modules, have been awarded the SAFETYAct certification status as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT). The certification is valid until April 2020 when it will be eligible for renewal and is retroactive for sales as early as 2015. “Meeting the standards for certification under the SAFETY Act is a demanding and challenging process that not all companies are capable of achieving and requires specific demonstration of how vendors develop and maintain their technology to achieve SAFETY Act Certification,” said Akmal Ali, principal at Catalyst Partners and a former Deputy Director of the DHS Office of SAFETY Act Implementation. “SV3 not only helps fulfil that mission, but also plays an important part in assisting venue operators in their own pursuit of SAFETY Act, which is important to our country's mission of creating a stronger public-private partnership in the fight against terrorism.” Downstream liability protections "This is a major validation of our SV3 technology and our effort and commitment to our clients and business partners," said Jeffrey C. Friedman, CEO of Building Intelligence. "The SAFETY Act Certification, the highest-quality standards available, assures our current and future clients that they are able to downstream liability protections in the event of a terrorist attack.”
