At IFSEC 2016, Maxxess launched new ambit and eFusion apps for management of workforce processes from security to employee engagement. New products include ambitPulse, a private managed messaging and analytics tool designed the developers say to improve employee engagement via dynamic two-way communications to track how colleagues feel about aspects of work and the workplace. ambitPulse will according to the firm enable more effective internal communication, support change initiatives and create a better connected, more secure workforce, backed by detailed reporting and clear accountability.
ambitPulse combines cloud-based messaging with measurable operational and security benefits it’s claimed. Maxxess is also extending the reach of its open-systems eFusion security platform with new eMobile solutions that equip operations and security teams to manage real-time events, verify authorisation status and validate procedures remotely via smartphones and mobile devices.
The new suite of eMobile modules for eFusion includes capabilities to:
• Verify the presence and number of staff, contractors, visitors and deliveries on site
• Manage staff transport with check-in/check-out features to account for all passengers
• Validate vehicles and drivers moving on and off-site
• Monitor the movement of personnel on and off an estate, including electronic log in
• Verify staff time and attendance at work or on remote sites
• Control manned guard tours, schedules and emergency mustering.
Lee Copland, Managing Director, Maxxess, EMEA, said: “Convergence of mobile, monitoring and distributed technologies is creating new opportunities, whether getting closer to employees or running security and routine operations more efficiently. Where once anything security-related was seen as something of a grudge purchase, the ability to mobilise and derive more value from technologies such as remote monitoring is putting security at the heart of the enterprise. This in turn offers multiple benefits, including better reporting, improved business intelligence and 24/7 accountability for people and assets, so helping to improve efficiency, increase productivity and drive more value into the business.
“ambitPulse and our eMobile solutions will have wide application, from security and operations teams to facilities, HR and senior management across all industry sectors, enabling our customers to maximise protection for people and property while reducing costs, raising return on investment and gaining competitive advantage.”
