PPM 2000 Receives Lenel Factory Certification Under Lenel's OpenAccess Alliance Program
EDMONTON, Alberta --(Business Wire)--
2000 today announced that it has received Lenel factory
certification and joined the Lenel
OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP). PPM's (News - Alert) Perspective
incident management software now integrates with Lenel's
OnGuard access control system so specific events in OnGuard
automatically trigger a dispatch call in Perspective, leading to faster,
more efficient emergency response and a reduction in manual data entry.
When one of the actionable alarms occurs, Perspective
automatically picks it up and starts a call, bringing in all of the
critical data and presenting it in the dispatch interface. OnGuard
events that don't require a dispatch, but still need to be documented,
can alsobe pulled over… this time straight into Perspective where they
are logged as new activity records which can, if necessary, be escalated
to incident status.
PPM 2000 has completed required factory testing at Lenel to
validate the functionality of its interface to OnGuard. "Certain events
need to be escalated for both action and documentation. By integrating
access control with incident management, users of both OnGuard and
Perspective benefit from faster incident response coupled with stronger
incident documentation, analysis and reporting," said Gidon
Lissai, director, strategic alliances, Lenel Systems. "We look forward
to PPM's continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program."
"We build a lot of custom integrations for our clients, but the
most common request we get for an out-of-the-box option is Lenel.
Everyone wants to be able to integrate their access control system with
their incident management process, including their front-end dispatching
and emergency response," states Brian McIlravey, CPP, Co-Chief Executive
Officer. "Being able to offer a factory certified integration between
Perspective and OnGuard is an important milestone for PPM, and we are
excited to share this development with our mutual clients, users of both
Perspective and OnGuard."
Perspective by PPM 2000 is an end-to-end, total solution for
reporting incidents, managing investigations and building cases. Using
Perspective, organizations can make informed decisions about security
operations and be proactive in their approach to incident reduction.
