In today’s era of technology, companies are constantly looking for new ways to stay ahead of the game and they need all of their security systems to work in synchronicity with each other to do so. When your systems and processes aren’t aligned, it can be very time-consuming to manage everything individually, especially if your business is rapidly growing, and systems that are not integrated often result in significant increases in cost and resource consumption.
Streamlining Your Security: Why Systems Integration is Important
With system integration, you will reap the benefits of increased efficiency and effectiveness while also reducing any disruption caused by having data in different places. Whether you want to align feedback with your HR system, monitor who enters and exits your building, or reduce shrink, system integration allows all components to work together and helps your company achieve all of its objectives.
What is Systems Integration?
In short, system integration is communication between different software to help minimize risk.
One example of professional system integration is when a door inside of a facility is equipped with a camera to monitor activity is also equipped with an access control system to prevent unauthorized access. If somebody does enter the area without proper access an alert will be sent to your security team. Though it is uncommon, the situation may escalate and become dangerous. In this rare case, the system begin sounding alarms and routing messages to desktops, cell phones, and mobile devices within the facility giving occupants instructions on what action needs to be taken.
Why Integrate Your Building’s Security Systems?
Technology continues to advance at a pace that few are able to keep up with and business owners can have a difficult time ensuring that their systems are always up-to-date. System integration is crucial to modern business operations and there are a number of organizational advantages that come with system integration. System integration helps fire, security, and communications systems to deliver maximum protection for commercial offices, healthcare facilities, educational facilities, and a variety of other building layouts.
The entire system works cohesively and has numerous capabilities that are simply not possible with separate, stand-alone systems managed in separate silos with little integration or reciprocal communication.
