AMAG Technology

AMAG Technology Announces Symmetry™ GUEST Visitor Management
New cloud-based visitor management system improves visitor experience, enhances security and recedes costs.

AMAG Technology is pleased to announce the release of Symmetry™ GUEST, a new web-based visitor management system that speeds the flow of visitors while improving customer service. Symmetry GUEST enhances a visitor's experience while helping organizations enforce security policies and reduce costs.

Symmetry GUEST operates on any tablet, smart phone or PC using any web browser. The mobility of GUEST is ideal for roving lobby ambassadors or self-service touch-screens to check-in visitors, contractors or visiting employees. The system issues a visitor pass electronically to the visitor's smart phone via a QR code or barcode, similar to an airline boarding pass. This allows visitors to be identified quickly by the system or directly from their phone. If utilizing GUEST self registration, visitors can check-in and print their visitor pass automatically, allowing the receptionist to focus on greeting the guest rather than soliciting paperwork.

"Symmetry GUEST offers a highly secure, yet easy to use solution to vet and manage visitors for any size organization," said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Client Services, Jeff LeBlanc. "Symmetry GUEST enhances the visitor experience, improves lobby traffic flow while enforcing security policies."

EMC

Mr. Ken Mills, Global Surveillance Strategy & Business Development, EMC, told us, "A challenge I've seen with many public safety organizations is the inability to see the holistic picture when it comes to managing data. Addressing the topic of body-worn devices cannot be done independently of other data sources. In November, I participated on a Secured Cities panel with Rodney Monroe, the recently retired Chief of Police for Charlotte, NC. Chief Monroe highlighted three key things that police departments must to do before deploying body-worn cameras.

  • Consider the long-term cost.
  • Develop a complete evidence strategy beyond body cameras; body-worn video is not the only data they will need to manage. Regardless of how they store their body-worn data, police departments must also manage data from a host of other applications like crime labs, digital evidence,surveillance, drones, in-car, license plate recognition, interview rooms, crime scene footage and more.
  • Ensure that the platform they choose is open and future ready. "By choosing an open storage platform from EMC," Monroe said, "the City of Charlotte not only saved money but we are now able to share critical data across the department."

At EMC,we strongly advise against siloed architectures as they are limiting when it comes to the transport,analysis, and value-generation of data. Forward-thinking public safety departments like the City of Charlotte are building a data platform that can collect, store, and manage all these different pools of data. The City of Charlotte implemented a Public Safety Data Lake -- a concept developed by EMC Surveillance that speaks to an open architecture that is scalable and analytics-ready. The data lake infrastructure provides a more cost-effective storage environment with the ability to seamlessly integrate new types of devices while gaining more control over the data."

Mr. Terry Gainer, Chief of Police, added, "The trend that is having the greatest impact is the emergence of new surveillance devices. Technologies such as drones, body cameras, license plate trackers, audio/video reconnaissance, and facial recognition are causing a large influx in data. This, in turn, is creating a number of challenges for public safety organizations with regard to data management and integration, evidence retrieval, and analytics.

There is also a significant push towards body-worn devices as a standard technology for police organizations, supported by the establishment and United States Federal investment in the Body-Worn Camera (BWC) Pilot-Partnership Program. One third of the 12,000 police departments in the United States are already using body cameras and new departments are deploying devices every day. Some cities and states are mandating the addition of body-worn devices. But the associated costs are significant, even factoring in the availability of Federal grants as a part of the BWC program.

Compounding these challenges are the varied legislative requirements associated with these new devices. Laws on evidence management and storage differ from state to state and on the type of crime. Data on minor traffic stops, for example, might only need to be kept for 30-45 days, while DUI data might need to be kept for 3 years or more. Data for federal crimes might need to be kept for the length of the imprisonment, or in some cases, forever. Most states have laws that require that the evidence used in a case be kept for a minimum of 7 years. Despite these inconsistencies, one thing is clear: video from body-worn cameras has a long shelf life."

Lockheed Martin IDHaystack™

Mr. John Mears, Senior Fellow, Information Technology & Security Solutions, Lockheed Martin IS&GS Civil, told us, "The idea behind IDHaystack™ is to make identification and verification services more accessible and evergreen within a secure Government community cloud construct. We were thinking, 'Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to offer an advanced multi-modal biometric system in a way accessible to many different Government customers without their having to expend significant capital to get it?' We wanted to create an evergreen biometrics engine that could support an open framework in which customers' existing unique workflows, rules, interfaces and user requirements could be accommodated as they exist or built separately to suit them. We tested these tenets with customers around the world and got positive affirmation that this is what they wanted going forward. Let me elaborate on why this idea is revolutionary."

MOBOTOUR

Mr. Dustin Laun, Co-Founder & CTO, MOBOTOUR, told us, "Allied Barton is an amazing company and we are honored to serve them. They saw the benefits of Mobotour day one as an early adopter. Often, Allied has clients that don't have large budgets, therefore other systems on the market can't be leveraged. We play very well here. Per ASIS Security magazine, we helped solve their Bank of America issues quickly. This was our first opportunity with them. From there we continued to deliver on our promises and show how reliable the product is and have continued to expand. We help them in hospitals, universities, high end office spaces, condos and other areas. All of this is achieved because of our hyper-efficient operation with very low overhead.
