An international high-fashion luxury brand has outsourced AWM360, the exclusive distributor of Kaba access control and digital security solutions to the southern Africa market, to secure its new store at Sandton City in Sandton, Johannesburg.
AWM360 is a leading supplier of technology to the Human Capital Management (HCM) workforce and HR markets.
The company’s long-time relationship with Kaba and knowledge of the specialised line of product made it an attractive proposition as an outsourced services partner.
The client is a recognised global luxury goods brand and requires the highest level of access control and security at its stores. Any service taken on board would have to have 24/7 support.
AWM360 and Kaba security represent a combined force of European skills and competency.
The specialist technical team at AWM360 introduced Kaba components and the client’s customised Kaba Exos solution, a solution that is ideal for facilities that need enhanced security, organisational efficiency, flexibility and operational convenience.
“AWM360 had to place all components in the right given place, which was executed successfully and the client’s corporate design of the store was not compromised at all. You might not see any Kaba terminals and readers while in the store, but they are there,” says Guenter Nerlich, MD, AWM360 Data Systems.
The companies also offer solution design & -planning, implementation, hardware & software support, ERP solution support and SLA services.
Kaba exos offers comprehensive access control and security features and a wide range of scalable and intelligent modules, including authorisation management, visitor management, parking and time management, as well as time and attendance and computer access control.
The offering is specifically designed to address challenges like safety and top security of sensitive documents, frequent loss or theft of valuable equipment and stock, lack of overview due to regular staff fluctuation, different user groups using the same facilities and access control.
“This system is designed for long-term use and fits within your current IT environment and features open and standardised interfaces to easily link individual subsystems for efficient transfer of data. It grows with an organisation and is a solid, protected investment,” says Nerlich.
