BMCE Bank, one of the largest banks in Morocco with a network of 620 branches, has placed its trust in a fully integrated security solution from MAXXESS Systems, which includes systems from ASSA ABLOY Aperio and HiKvision CCTV, to create a secure and safe working environment for staff at its head office in Casablanca.
The Bank required a security management system which would allow it to achieve maximum benefit from its investment in a number of new security systems. These included the very latest IP network based access control equipment from MAXXESS to manage intricate functions with turnstiles and elevators, specialised visitor management software and an Aperio C100 wireless locking system, to provide the Bank with an aesthetically attractive solution for controlling locks on 50 glass doors. There was also a requirement to integrate a 100 camera surveillance system which incorporates a hybrid recording solution from HIKvision.
The contract to implement the integrated system was awarded to CST Sécurité, a leading Moroccan security systems integrator. “It was an interesting challenge to design a solution which ensured that the various systems worked in harmony and collectively equip security personnel with a powerful tool to protects its assets and people, as well as provide the Bank with a customised time and attendance system,” said Mr Jamal Eddine Malaal, Managing Director of CST Sécurité in Morocco.
“Our research led us to the conclusion that eFusion security management software from MAXXESS Systems should be at the heart of the solution. An additional and equally important contributing factor to the success of this project has been the close working relationship of MAXXESS, ASSA ABLOY Aperio and HIKvison. This has significantly contributed to our ability to meet our client’s demanding requirements.”
eFusion comprises of fourteen integration Apps which individually address specific security issues, but when working together, provide a sophisticated global integrated security management software solution. Clients only need to purchase the Apps required to match their current security requirements. Additional Apps can be introduced at any time in the future if and when the security system is expanded or the clients’ needs change.
“This prestigious project is certainly a landmark for us in Morocco and working closely with our partners ASSA ABLOY Aperio and HIKvision has been key to its success and will surely mark the beginning of a long term business relationship with CST Sécurité,” said Jalil Neghza, Middle East Sales Manager for MAXXESS Systems. “I am confident that the success of this project and the availability of eFusion as a true French language platform will open new doors for further projects in North Africa and other French speaking countries.”
