Nedap Security Management presented several key conclusions from its extensive benchmark study at ASIS Europe 2019 today. The study focuses on the access control challenges and opportunities faced by multinationals – both now and in the future. One significant finding was that almost 60% of multinationals don’t (yet) consider their access control system to be future-proof. The results of the study were presented by Martin Wijlens and Timon Padberg, global client sales managers for Nedap Security Management. As well as giving an insider view on access control for organisations operating globally, they introduced Nedap's Global Client Programme. It’s designed to help multinationals implement, maintain and update AEOS access control efficiently, and on a global level. Our benchmark study gives multinationals useful peer-to-peer insight into the status, challenges and opportunities of their access control systems" Challenges of access control systems Martin Wijlens of Nedap Security Management says: "Our benchmark study gives multinationals useful peer-to-peer insight into the status, challenges and opportunities of their access control systems. It zooms in on topics such as convenience versus danger, infrastructure and map technology.” His colleague Timon Padberg adds: “Due to increasing globalisation and constant changes, the international standardisation of security aspects such as access control is becoming increasingly important. We support multinationals with concrete insights based on market research, and also alleviate their concerns, not to mention workload and stress, through our Global Client Programme.”
Manufacturer ROCKWOOL International A.S. has chosen Nedap’s Global Client Programme to secure its offices and factories worldwide. AEOS, the physical security platform by Nedap, installed during the programme, enables ROCKWOOL to establish a truly global security policy and unified work processes. An advanced project rollout, the Global Client Programme is developed for large multinationals and offers several benefits, including standardisation across sites, shorter implementation times and cost efficiencies. Standardising company’s security measures The Global Client Programme connects all of ROCKWOOL’s factories and office premises, and standardises the company’s security measuresROCKWOOL has 28 factories across the world. The Global Client Programme connects all of these factories and ROCKWOOL’s office premises, and standardises the company’s security measures throughout the world. Fokko van der Zee, managing director at Nedap Security Management, says: “The implementation of a standardised security solution across the world is a complex process. It involves a large project spanning many years and involving many stakeholders, and demands a high level of project management. In the absence of a structured program with defined guidelines, a global security rollout is likely to be a stressful execution. That’s why we set up our carefully designed Global Client Programme.” ROCKWOOL Digital Service Lead, Matthew Thorne, agrees: “We’ve worked with Nedap over the past few years and recently became a member of their Global Client Programme. Now we’re equipped with the people and tools we needed to standardise our physical security solution. The Global Client Programme also minimises risk and guarantees compliance. It really meets our needs in every possible way.” Central security platform saves money The programme helps achieve cost savings by avoiding initial setup costs per site and having one central security platform instead of severalThe Global Client Programme is designed to ensure monitoring and control during every step of the rollout process. Timon Padberg, responsible for business development at Nedap Security Management, explains: “The repetitive nature of local site deployments allows us to work with models and templates, such as standard proposal and calculation documents. We can therefore produce a scalable process that ensures uniformity and a consistently high quality of implementation across each site.” By using the Global Client Programme, ROCKWOOL is aiming for uniformity and alignment across all sites. The programme also helps achieve cost savings by avoiding initial setup costs per site and having one central security platform instead of several. Moreover, there are significant savings on operational and maintenance costs due to shared services and economies of scale.
