Global investment firm, Ninety One, has offices located across Africa, the Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe. A recent refurbishment of their headquarters in London, supporting global offices in Hong Kong, New York, Pretoria, and Port Elizabeth, saw them require an efficient, centrally deployed access control system that utilizes one credential across all of their global offices.
The Gallagher solution
With the refurbishment coinciding with the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, certified Gallagher Channel Partner, SecureWais UK, recommended a contactless access control solution and Gallagher’s Mobile Connect. The unique mobile access application, which offers optional two-factor authentication, easily administered credential provisioning, and a secure, on-phone Digital ID, is ready to roll out to Ninety One’s global employees as they return to their offices.
“Our new security solution has enabled the whole team to seamlessly transition to the use of a mobile access credential and the easy deployment from one central point has been pivotal to the success of the new strategy.”
The business value
Nick Baker, Workplace Global Coordinator at Ninety One, said: “The ease with which we can deploy access credentials for any of our employees globally has provided a huge step change – particularly when we return to travel between global offices using a single credential.”
Nick also praised the suite of reports available within Gallagher’s Command Centre. The team now have access to automatic daily reports to view personnel in the building, which go straight to Head Office for any COVID-19 track and trace management. This functionality has proven vital for managing risks and protecting the health and safety of employees and visitors.
