Restore PLC is one of the leading UK companies providing a fully integrated records management service, including archive document storage, secure scanning services and confidential document shredding. Significant expansion over the last few years has seen the development of a nationwide service with storage solutions across all of mainland Britain.
Restore’s document management site in Middlesbrough was using an old biometric access control system to manage site access. However, the fingerprint recognition system was causing many problems for the users due to the age of the system, non-recognition of fingerprints and hence blocking staff access.
Restore PLC contacted Assured Fire & Security to find a solution. Assured’s Fire & Security Consultant, Lisa Ashmore, visited the Middlesbrough facility and conducted a free site survey.
Because of the age of the system, new Paxton Net2 P50 access control readers were recommended. This would replace the biometric readers with a key fob entry facility for staff, ensuring more reliable and secure access control. It would also bring the access control system in line with an existing Paxton system used on their other site – enabling staff to gain access to both sites without the need for separate fobs.
Paxton Net2 is an advanced PC based access control solution. It offers centralised administration and control of sites and tailors access privileges to groups or individuals quickly and easily using intuitive, user-friendly software.
Lisa comments: “The existing system was very old and needed updating to provide a reliable solution. Whilst the existing access control unit was fine and didn’t need replacing, the biometric fingerprint readers were causing a regular access problem for staff. Replacing them with more up to date P50 readers was a clear solution for the company without the unnecessary cost of a complete new access control system.”
Restore PLC now has an up to date access control system that works reliably and provides the security required for a storage facility.
