Adirondack Solutions Inc., a Bridgewater, N.J. software provider for colleges, is offering a dedicated button on its software configuration panel for PERSONA-powered locksets making it easier to integrate the card reader locking system into a campus run by Adirondack’s housing management software.
The PERSONA and Adirondack software are interfaced together, eliminating the need for the school to maintain separate databases for access control and campus transaction systems. Changes to data brought about by enrollment or other status changes can be communicated to all systems with greater speed.
With the integrated system, every ID card is automatically encoded with access control privileges recognized by the PERSONA lockset, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand, and all on-line systems associated with the Adirondack housing system. Campus personnel can spend less time maintaining data, while students are able to access buildings, rooms, meal plans, vending machines, POS systems and other verified systems with a single card.
“Linking our software systems provides the higher education marketplace the benefit of not only having a one-card system, but also more importantly, a single database system for issuing and maintaining the cards,” said Angelo Faenza, PERSONA general manager.
