ContinentalAccess now offers dealers/integrators new RMR potential with remote hosted services in the latest CA3000 v2.11 of Enterprise Access Control Software. ContinentalAccess, a division of Napco, is known for its enterprise class CA3000 systems, integrating access control, alarms, locking and support. Continental provides its own optimized, long-lived hardware and software. Features include mobile access support, NFC and Bluetooth LE; remote Web interface, remote control and oversight of system.
Just one of several recent additions to its enterprise package, CA3000 v2.11 features hosted managed services, where a dealer can partition just one server running CA3000 and use it for multiple clients. Then, each account can securely “remote-in” and view just their system, check status and easily and intuitively make their own routine changes such as editing users for new hires or departing employees, or changing access privileges by group, area or schedule, and more.
This remote service offering not only provides the dealer with a new RMR revenue opportunity from typical access system applications, but by requiring no onsite computer at each account, the dealer project quotations are more competitive and successful, and the client saves costs, time and overhead in the long run, reported ContinentalAccess. ContinentalAccess Vice President Scott Schramme said, “It’s a win-win for the integrator and their customers. We already have several very large well known dealers/integrators doing very well making new RMR from CA3000’s hosted/managed services, and doing so on virtually every access control system they’re installing, from two to eight doors or more. Some dealers are going a step beyond just hosting the server; they’re even offering to implement the routine system updates and changes for their commercial clients, as well.”
