Access control specialist TDSi has launched a new version of EXgarde, the company’s advanced integrated access management software platform. Proven in applications across the world to deliver outstanding access and integrated security systems management, EXgarde has now been upgraded to deliver a number of significant improvements in usability.
Tried and tested and with proven reliability, the core EXgarde system remains unchanged, with Version 3 bringing some key changes to the user interface, enabling information to be located and retrieved more quickly and a wide range of standard tasks to be performed in simple steps.
This new version offers unparalleled integration capabilities, providing users with a flexible and dynamic platform. Through the use of a suite of database tools, EXgarde delivers seamless integration with a wide range of proprietary and bespoke systems such as Schools Information Management Systems (SIMS), HR, Payroll, Time and Attendance and CCTV applications delivering the capability for complete building and security management and so the potential for considerable resource savings, in terms of both time and cost.
Designed to be uncluttered and with the look and feel of familiar applications, EXgarde’s new home page may be customised to suit each user’s individual requirements for example, with shortcuts to specific areas of interest, or for tasks that only they have access to. Specific images or site plans may also be easily added to the homepage, if required.
The upgrade also includes several standard Wizards to guide users through common tasks step by step (for instance adding controllers or new key holders) and the addition of more intuitive drop-down options which allow users to quickly locate commonly used information. For example, the ‘Properties’ display area shows all the properties and information associated with each item - keeping the number of mouse clicks to a minimum, saving time and improving efficiency. These intuitive operations give users much greater confidence to undertake tasks themselves.
Commenting on this new release, John Davies, TDSi’s Managing Director, said: “EXgarde has been tried and tested over six years’ successful operation in a wide range of applications. Building on the success of the current platform, we have developed Version 3 in partnership with established users to provide an easier interface, intelligent shortcuts and a comprehensive help facility.”
