After a strong start to 2018, access control specialist Nortech has once again been recognised as a certified partner of Nedap for long-range identification.
Following the presentation of the certification at this year’s Intertraffic exhibition, Nortech’s managing director Stephen Blackler commented: “Nortech is proud to be part of the Certified Partner Programme as it shows the company’s commitment and ability with Nedap’s long-range identification products as part of our vehicle access solutions.”
Having been part of the certified programme since 2010, Nortech recently visited Intertraffic 2018 in Amsterdam to support Nedap and cement its relationship with its distributors and the many contacts the company has in the traffic industry. During the show, Nedap presented its leading smart parking and vehicle identification solutions to the market, including its TRANSIT, uPASS and ANPR readers for long-range identification.
In addition to its ongoing long-range identification partnership, Nedap has recently visited Nortech at the company’s Cwmbran headquarters to give technical training on its long-range products to Nortech’s technical support team. Intensive training ensures that Nortech staff can provide in-depth support to its customers on Nedap products.
With many years’ experience in the automatic vehicle identification business, Nortech knows that offering the best quality equipment and the right equipment for the job will avoid potential problems at a later juncture.
Nortech works with Nedap to offer free tailored training courses that discuss the technologies involved and how and where to apply them plus guidance on correct installation with practical hands-on training.
Nedap’s safe, secure and efficient technology is both cost-effective and convenient and can easily be applied to parking and security applications. For these reasons and many more, the popular uPASS Target has recently been nominated as a finalist in the PSI Premier Awards 2018.
