GuardRFID now offers interoperability between its Argus platform and Lenel’s OnGuard security management software as a member of the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program
January 14, 2011 – GuardRFID announced today that it has received factory certification of its Argus Active RFID platform from Lenel Systems International, a leading provider of electronic access control systems. As a member of the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program, GuardRFID can now offer seamless interoperability between its Argus Platform and Lenel’s OnGuard security management software, thus significantly enhancing access control and visibility within GuardRFID’s suite of RTLS (real-time location system) and security applications. GuardRFID’s TotGuard Infant Security and AllGuard RTLS and Security are mission-critical systems built upon the Argus platform, and therefore the integration certifies these systems.
“Guard RFID Solutions Inc. has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to OnGuard. We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program,” said Joshua Phillips, Director of Marketing for Lenel.
“The Lenel Factory Certification is a major milestone in our efforts to create holistic solutions for healthcare facilities,” stated Zahir Abji, President and CEO of GuardRFID Solutions, Inc. “Hospitals have traditionally deployed many disparate systems that have little or no interactions, and are therefore not able to work in collaboration with each other. As a result, there is functional overlap which can create risk for these facilities. A collaborative approach enhances the security and functionality of these systems at a high level by allowing each of them to perform only the specific tasks that they were intended for, and which they are particularly good at executing.”
