Integrated security manufacturer TDSi is pleased to confirm its continued programme of Table Talks sessions for its partners and end users. TDSi began hosting these regular sessions during the Lockdown phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, to deliver technical and informational content to interested parties. TDSi’s Table Talks are free online discussion and training sessions with a Roundtable of its key technical and commercial team members. Each session features TDSi’s security experts, on hand to answer questions from attendees and to discuss relevant topics on integrated security systems, installation, and specification. System architecture and design TDSi’s Managing Director, John Davies, who chairs Table Talk commented, “The COVID-19 restrictions have made it harder than normal for us to speak directly to our installation partners and customers, so we wanted to find a way to address this and Table Talk was born.” Our friendly panel of experts are on hand to offer advice on system architecture and design" John added, “The sessions are designed to fit the needs of our audience and we welcome questions posed beforehand (and during the sessions), so we can ensure the content is tailored directly to the needs of participants, rather than us jumping on a soapbox and regaling the audience with all things TDSi. Our friendly panel of experts are on hand to offer advice on system architecture and design, to talk about the latest technology or to answer questions on specific projects and installations.” Non-contact touchless systems Table Talk is presented once a month and chaired by John, who is accompanied by varied members of TDSi’s expert panel, typically including: Head of Development Tina Baker, Product Engineer Russell Marande, Sales Director Alex Rumsey, and International Business Manager Mica Negrilic. John adds, “The COVID-19 restrictions have seen big changes for everyone in security, with greater demand for non-contact touchless systems (including proximity readers and biometrics). The team and I will be on hand to answer any questions on the options, benefits and suitability of our systems and the integration potential they offer in working with security systems from other suppliers too.”

Integrated security manufacturer TDSi is proud to announce its French office is celebrating its 20th Anniversary on 1st September 2018. Originally established as a branch of the UK-based company to service French customers, the office in Noisy-le-Grand, Paris now oversees sales and technical support operations across Europe and North Africa. TDSi’s Managing Director, John Davies commented, “TDSi has a long and distinguished presence in France with an excellent network of partners and loyal customers, but TDSi France has grown well beyond its initial scope to become a vital part of our overall business. In 20 years, the Paris office has grown to generate 25% p.a. of TDSi’s entire income and we are extremely proud of the team.” Extending TDSi’s global reach Originally established in 1998 in conjunction with Elkron (now part of ADI Global) as a distribution hub for TDSi products, the French office rapidly evolved into a far more elaborate centre for everything TDSi. Following steady sales growth, a strategic decision was made around 10 years ago to take advantage of its Francophile links to further extend TDSi’s reach into North Africa – with an even more concerted push five years later. Even if there are disruptions in trade between the UK and mainland Europe, TDSi France will be on hand to ensure reliable service for all our EU customers" The Paris-based operations continue to be a vital part of TDSi as John Davies continued, “With Brexit looming and the current level of uncertainty over what this will entail, it is very reassuring for TDSi to have a powerful and dynamic presence in the heart of the EU. Even if there are disruptions in trade between the UK and mainland Europe, TDSi France will be on hand to ensure reliable and continued service for all our EU customers, free of any potential issues.” Exhibition at Security Essen TDSi France is also a key component in the manufacturer’s continued growth within the EU and beyond, as Mica Negrilic, International Business Development Manager at TDSi and head of the Paris office added, “TDSi will be exhibiting at Security Essen in September and the French team is at the heart of preparation for our stand and presentations. As a business, we want to establish a wider footprint in Germany and Eastern Europe, which has huge potential for further growth and is already showing a keen interest in our products and services.” Mica concluded, “Whilst we proudly celebrate 20 years of success, TDSi France is very much focused on the future and the huge opportunities we have in the wider European market and beyond. These are exciting times and we look forward to the continued growth of our partnerships, customer base and business as a whole.”

Mica reflected, “The Middle East is a key export market for TDSi and has seen significant growth for us in recent years. Intersec offers our team the opportunity to talk directly to the people who buy and sell the products across the region and beyond. This gives a better understanding of the demands and needs from this important security market.” GARDiS web-based application The TDSi stand will feature its product portfolio as well as GARDiS, the company’s forthcoming web-based application that offers even greater flexibility and suitability to modern applications.

This ushers in the era of open platforms for access control. Mica concluded, “At Intersec 2016 we recorded a 30% increase in the number of visitors to our stand (a trend which continued across our appearances at a number of events worldwide throughout the year), so we are very keen to engage with our current and potential partners and customers again. If you are visiting the event in January, we would be delighted to show you our latest systems and services.” Save
