Johnson Controls, the developer of the OpenBlue digital platforms, introduces the WorkForce Notifier plug-in. The company says that it adds real-life practical benefits to the Tyco Software House C-CURE 9000 security and event management platform.
Developed by software firm Encode Labs, a Johnson Controls’ technology partner, the plug-in sends e-mails or SMS text messages to employees and contractors to alert them they are in danger of being locked out of a site, because their access control card credentials have expired or will be expiring in the near future.
The alerts, which are sent at configurable intervals via a customisable template that can include an organisation’s logo, give the recipient an overview of the expiring dates of all their credentials, as well as notification that a specific credential needs to be updated. This could, for example, relate to a work permit or that a medical examination is due, and provides the option to attach documentation which sets out renewal procedures.
The plug-in also aids the management of multiple expiration dates on a single personnel record. It is able to do so from C-CURE 9000’s Personnel Editor, or from records fed from the databases of third-party human resource (HRM), health and safety and visitor management systems.
When expiration dates are imported from an HRM system such as SAP WorkDay, the plug-in automatically processes any changes and seamlessly enforces the new dates on the credentials; hence no need to make manual changes. Visit www.swhouse.com.
