We love SXSW, but let’s face facts: the badges on lanyards have got to go. They’re a hassle. A hindrance. Not only that, they aren’t the most secure form of identity. No one looks at the badges all that closely when you go to a session or the tradeshow.
In any case, SXSW is supposed to be the height of interactive and tech. Do paper badges and lanyards really show the event to its best? It’s time to change the SXSW experience for the better with improved identity and access management (IAM).
Let’s pretend SXSW has invested in Brivo OnAir.
When it comes to your security installation business, what one thing can you do to create value for your business, grow your customer base, and increase customer satisfaction?
The answer is Brivo Systems.
If you’re one of our Brivo Dealers, you can speak from experience. (We hope you will!) Those who aren’t yet Brivo Dealers, read on.
As enterprises and small businesses (SMBs) increase their adoption of the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, developers have to consider what makes for a good SaaS solution. What elements will deliver the most return on an investment of time, effort, and money? Which ones will determine success?
When you’re a vendor at an event, how do you know who’s trafficking the space? More importantly, who’s engaging with your installation?
The Oscars are this weekend, causing us to wonder how cloud-based access control could impact events. Here, we look at some of the concerns that affect event management today and ponder the solutions found in products like Brivo OnAir, SAM and IDBox.
Managing a coworking space is no easy feat. Beyond the need to meet coworkers’ expectations and needs for steady Wi-Fi, conference calls, coffee, and the occasional Nerf gun war, managers have to know exactly who is in the space and when. That is, they need an access control and identity management solution.
Brivo OnAir meets both requirements. It identifies who is in the space and tracks activity. The access control solution works with traditional key cards, or it can be integrated with an API like SAM to allow for mobile credentials and social identities. In addition, Brivo OnAir offers other benefits such as live video streams, real-time notifications, and data reports.
It comes as no surprise that cloud computing has changed the way businesses operate. What may come as a surprise is how much, particularly as it relates to security, both physical and digital, and access control.
We visited with one of our clients, East Shore Athletic Club (ESAC), a few weeks ago to learn about how they’ve integrated the Brivo OnAir product into their environment and how it’s impacted them. Our conversation follows below.
“Change starts here” is ESAC’s motto. It’s found on a placard at their primary location in Charleston, South Carolina as well as their 11 other clubs up and down the seaboard. The motto holds true across all 12 locations; change does start at ESAC, both for the people who use the clubs and for the way access control is provided and managed.
While we can’t foretell whether the Seahawks or the Patriots will win Super Bowl 2015, we can look forward to more seamless and – dare we say it? – “frictionless” Super Bowls and other stadium events. Why? Because of mobile, connected devices, social identities, the cloud, and video.
Gillian Fealy, owner of Live Grit in Chicago, Illinois, describes her store as the destination for the laidback tri-athlete. The store isn’t for the diehard but the recreational, the athlete who enjoys things other than swimming, biking, and running. This athlete comes to Live Grit for the relaxed atmosphere (Fun runs and social gatherings, anyone?) and top-of-the-line gear.
Live Grit is small at the moment – they have four employees – making access control a fairly simple thing to accomplish. For the store, security and the customer experience are more pressing matters. Brivo’s flagship product Brivo OnAir helps with both and offers the ability to scale access control as the company grows.
