Zero-stress in-person visits and visibility
The access management solution that e-shelter security offers delivers high level security and increased efficiency to the data center. While the reception desk can offer another layer of security verification, the access management solution is more than capable of handling the entire process – allowing reception to concentrate on more pressing matters or focusing on core job responsibilities that drive the business forward. In addition, a one-stop access management solution to get guests to their destination, is customer-centric and convenient, taking the stress and delays out of an in-person visit. It also adds to a modern and efficient look that businesses want to amplify outward to clients, prospects and partners to demonstrate their forward-thinking initiatives that embraces technology.
Smart Data Center
The push and adoption of more digitized solutions by building operators makes complete business sense even if real estate-related industries as a whole are generally slow to implement these trends. Data center providers, however, do embrace these initiatives, finding ways to differentiate themselves from competitors with high quality services and efficiencies. Power, Cooling, Connectivity and Security are the foundation of a data center’s offerings and without them, a data center provider would cease to operate. Reputation, reliability, along with high availability and scalability are other key attributes that set data center operators apart from the competition. Today, even data center clients are putting pressure on operators to make meaningful changes around sustainability, efficiency, cost savings and more. These latter components are starting to give way to the Smart Data Center concept where one can operate more effectively through technology innovation and integration – both in core data operations and overhead and maintenance expenses.
Digital access management plays a pivotal role in the data center evolution – as it actually enhances the security at the facility, especially the sensitive equipment rooms inside a building. It also integrates seamlessly with existing facility, security and communication applications to deliver information to all stakeholders – reducing missed communication or information lapses and keeping everyone informed throughout the access management value chain. Keeping business running continually, whether with prospects, existing clients, partners or even maintenance workers, is imperative. Keeping those expected visitors happy and returning and their businesses moving forward is how access management can indeed play a bigger role in a data center’s operations and performance.
