Ithaca, NY: The CBORD Group, Inc., is pleased to announce that North Dakota State University has chosen the company as its access control technology provider. The university recently selected CBORD’s CS Access™ product to replace an existing system. A phased implementation has begun, and the system will eventually manage access to more than 200 doors.
Along with CS Access, North Dakota State also chose to implement CBORD’s CS Action and Response Management™ software. Together, these solutions not only control facility access privileges, but also integrate alarm management based on a wide variety of triggers (door prop, bad card read, etc.). The software allows users to respond rapidly to events as they occur, through proactive notification of alarm conditions via email or phone, or automatic action sequences defined by the user. The decision represents North Dakota State’s desire for integration across multiple areas of security operations, improving situational awareness and accountability on the global campus level.
“We expect the new functionality with CS Access to improve our ability to successfully manage access schedules, controllers, readers, doors, users, and monitoring,” said Vance Gerchak, NDSU Technology Coordinator. “This effort is an important step in making our campus safer and more secure for students, faculty, staff, and guests.”
“We are very pleased to work with North Dakota State to implement our integrated security solutions,” says Randy Eckels, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, The CBORD Group, Inc. “With campus security on the minds of many, it is important for universities to seek out technology that provides a ‘big picture’ view of security operations. North Dakota State has done just that, and we are excited to assist the school in enhancing the safety of its community.”
