Organization Type:

An Illinois based child welfare and family services Institution

Challenge:

This agency had been using a proprietary access control system of which they struggled to get consistent support.

Solution:

The agency worked with Elliott Data Systems to implement a solution that integrated photo ID software with an access control system used to manage headquarters and 4 remote locations. This new solution used non-proprietary components that lowered the cost of their access control credentials.

The system comprised of:

  • BadgePass Identity Manager: used to design ID cards and enroll users.

  • CD800 Duplex Printer: prints ID cards instantly on-site.

  • BadgePass Access Manager: access control software that creates and manages assignments of credentials and access privileges for users.

  • Allegion Multi-Technology Readers: provides keyless entry using ID cards at each door.

Results:

This system will lower operating costs, provide greater data management among multiple locations and will have dependable support to draw on when required through Elliott’s technical support team.
