Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi has announced the integration of its powerful GARDiS access control range with Thinking Software’s RotaOne Time and Attendance platform. The new integration enables businesses and organisations to incorporate the two solutions, thereby providing a complete overview of staff movements and the security of facilities.
Reflecting on the new integration, Gwen Curran (channel partner manager for the North at TDSi) commented: “GARDiS is designed to not only deliver the most secure of integrated access control solutions, but also to be highly flexible and adaptable to the needs of customers. As a highly popular Time and Attendance solution, RotaOne is the perfect integration partner for GARDiS, enabling users of both systems to link their technology investments and enjoy the benefits of combining data and having a powerful overview of operations.”
The integration with TDSi’s GARDiS platform was a clear choice for Thinking Software, too. Paul Coombes (the company’s sales and marketing director) noted: “No systems developer can specialise in all areas of expertise, so it follows that integration is a far better approach than trying to be the best at everything. TDSi’s GARDiS represents the Best-of-Breed in access control. Working together means that we can both add additional Return on Investment and ease of management benefits for our customers.”
Integrating GARDiS with RotaOne enables businesses to mitigate risk by ensuring that staff are safe and facilities are secure. It also provides an accurate record of people movement, which is perfect for time and cost savings when running a business that employs contracted, casual and salaried staff on complex or repeating shift patterns. The integrated solution also ensures full monitoring for compliance reporting and safety purposes.
Flexibility and resilience
For added flexibility and resilience, RotaOne can be deployed remotely and hosted in the cloud (either on a private footing or securely shared) and is fully scalable from a small SME team right up to a full multinational enterprise.
Integration is backwards compatible with existing installations (running the latest updates of both platforms). Both TDSi and Thinking Software offer their solutions through fully-trained installation partners to provide a professional integration solution for customers that can be swiftly implemented.
Gwen Curran concluded: “As the world begins to adjust to the complex post-pandemic landscape, integrated systems will be at the forefront of managing social distancing and reducing the possibilities of cross-infection. By integrating two solutions that are Best-of-Breed in their respective spheres, we can help businesses to concentrate on their core functions with full peace of mind.”
