3xLOGIC, the provider of integrated and intelligent security solutions, has announced the appointment of Alex Buckle as UK business development manager. Following the business’ highly successful launch into the European market last year, this is a significant appointment for 3xLOGIC and Buckle will be responsible for continuing to build the profile of the company in the UK.

After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University, Buckle entered the security industry in 2015 as sales executive for Dedicated Micros. He subsequently took up positions with NetVu and Arkessa before joining Vista in 2017 as its business development manager, where he remained until joining 3xLOGIC.

“So far my career has given me tremendous insight into the supply chain and the specific needs of end users, consultants and system integrators,” commented Buckle. “It’s this experience that has allowed me to develop an excellent level of commercial awareness and understanding, and I intend using these attributes to create new opportunities in line with 3xLOGIC’s strategic growth plan.”

Buckle added: “I was attracted to this position due to 3xLOGIC’s integration of CCTV and access control coupled with its business intelligence platform, allowing customers to take enormous amounts of data and turn it into actionable information. This role gives me a massive opportunity to help organisations across the UK drive operational improvement from data in new and exciting ways.”

A leading innovator in server, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things as well as cloud-based technology for over 15 years, US-based 3xLOGIC boasts a wealth of expertise in the development and integration of access control, video surveillance and video management systems. Buckle is tasked with promoting the numerous benefits of 3xLOGIC’s solutions, which provide comprehensive, cost-effective and multi-dimensional security infrastructures that are easy to manage, simple to install and can scale in line with changing needs.

Gary Rowden, 3xLOGIC’s vice-president of commercial sales, concluded: “I’m delighted that Alex has joined us. His extensive skills, knowledge and experience will help us rapidly expand our presence in the UK. We have an enviable track record in redefining what’s possible with security technology and our success in the highly competitive US market is testament to our ability to stay one step ahead of the competition.”

Computer modelling project aims to improve fire prevention

A new project will bring fire-fighters and academics together to improve fire prevention by predicting where and when fires are more likely to occur.

The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University are working with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue to develop the PREMONITION computer simulation.

The project will use computer modelling techniques to pull together geographical, demographical and behavioural data to build up a picture of an area and predict where fires and other emergencies might occur.

Some of this information is already available to fire services through online sources, or from local authority records, but due to the vast amount of data it’s often difficult to make sense of it. The simulation will combine all of the various strands of information and use it in real-time to support decision-making.

It will enable fire services to make better decisions about where to allocate resources and improve planning and fire prevention initiatives.

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue’s spokesperson Nicola Smith commented: “The research we are supporting with our academic partners is a cutting-edge exploration of behaviours during our prevention and response activities. Partnerships with well-respected organisations like the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University will place us at the forefront of modern approaches to delivering improved community safety.”

If successful, the simulation could be rolled-out for use by other fire services across the country.
