Hikvision UK & Ireland is launching a new Consultant Support Programme, aimed at security specifiers and consultants. The free programme provides consultants and specifiers with access to a dedicated named point of contact, who works with technical security specialists to provide bespoke support as required. The project support can assist with anything from product selection and solution design to tender specifications.
This kicks off with a virtual live event, ‘Time to Change’, on Thursday morning, May 20. That will look at the ways BIM – Building Information Modelling – can be of benefit to security specifiers and consultants working in the built environment, allowing them to use automation to work smarter rather than harder and reducing the headaches involved with inevitable last-minute design changes. Specifiers and consultants who register with the programme will be able to access BIM files as part of a range of purpose-built tools and resources.
Hikvision Specifier Relations Manager Ross Bale says the services have been designed to meet the needs of working security specifiers and consultants. He says: “As a former security consultant, I know first-hand the challenges that consultants face and understand the support that is useful in their day-to-day roles. Consultants are being asked to produce tender packages at short notice and with limited resources, and expected to integrate multiple systems and technologies, all while keeping up to date with standards, trends, and best practices.
“We’re here to help. Our Time To Change event is about embracing the BIM approach, and helping consultants and specifiers take advantage of the technology’s potential to make their working lives easier and more efficient.”
Hikvision has also added to its range of consultant and specifier CPD courses with ‘Securing 21st Century Data Centres’. This looks at the requirements, trends and challenges of operating a data centre. It examines typical application scenarios and analyses available security options, exploring how security can add value by reducing downtime and increasing the efficiency of security staff.
Hikvision adds that its CPD courses are short sessions delivered online or in-person, and cover topics including Artificial Intelligence, Low Light Surveillance Technology, and Cyber Security for the Internet of Things.
