Security Access Systems Ltd is a North West based business, who are specialists in the installation, maintenance and service of all types of automated security systems, include, but not limited to; sliding gates, automatic gates, car park barriers, rising bollards, turnstiles and controlled access for the Domestic and Commercial sectors.

They are an approved Installers and maintainers for the most respected automation manufacturers in the industry and pride themselves on providing superior levels of Quality, Customer Satisfaction and value for money as well as considering the environmental impact that their business may have.

When we first began working with Security Access Systems, they were operating an adequate system, with some desktop machines, utilising a NAS Drive, as a central shared storage device; regularly backing up their system on and off-site. They did, however, find, that they were working more and more outside of their office and as such, required a solution that would enable them to access their data when on the go.

After working with the team at Security Access Systems and considering how they work and how best to design the system, we redesigned their infrastructure.

We replaced their desktop machines, with high grade, commercial specification Lenovo laptops, coupled with docking stations and dual monitors; allowing for mobility and maximising efficiency in the office, allowing for several documents to be worked on at any one time.

During this time we replaced their Microsoft Offices Licence to that of Microsoft Office 365. Allowing them to access regular updates and latest versions of Microsoft Office, while also allowing them to utilise Microsoft Exchange for their emails and syncing across devices. Incorporating Microsoft Azure for their team file sharing, allowing them to use the cloud platform, ensures that they have access to documentation, where ever they have a stable and secure internet connection. This also provides for offsite backup to be automated.
