International total facilities management provider OCS has installed a state-of-the-art IP-based surveillance system from Axis Communications at its UK head office in Clapham, South London to create a safer environment and demonstrate its expertise in security solutions to visiting customers and prospects.
Axis Communications worked directly with OCS’ compliance services division to provide the IP surveillance system for the offices where approximately 300 OCS employees are based. The system replaced a legacy analogue system.
As a Gold Partner of Axis Communications, OCS selected a number of different Axis cameras, including static and fully functional, for both internal and external applications. The range of cameras selected illustrates the breadth of coverage and excellent image quality that Axis surveillance cameras can achieve.
Howard Austin, divisional director specialised services of OCS said: “We wanted to show our clients our proficiency in installing leading edge surveillance systems, as well as to improve safety and security at our existing office environment.
“We know that you can achieve far superior breadth of coverage using Axis megapixel cameras rather than traditional analogue cameras, plus the outstanding image quality that HD cameras provide. We wanted to prove this to potential clients in a live situation and our offices provided the perfect environment.
“Axis truly understood what we wanted to achieve with our offices acting as a showcase for customers. The result is cutting edge solution that will support us now and well into the future, but also showcase our abilities to our clients.”
Atul Rajput, regional director at Axis added: “It was a great opportunity to install this new IP-based surveillance system at OCS’ head offices as it enables us to display our full capabilities and technologies to a range of organisations. OCS is a valued partner and truly understands our products and technologies.”
The new system installed at its head office enables OCS to highlight its capabilities and expertise in delivering and managing the latest in security solution. The offices provide the perfect location to illustrate that the company uses the technology it recommends to its client base and highlights OCS’ capabilities in delivering solutions to meet clients’ surveillance goals. It will also help create a safer environment for staff and customers and will be easy to maintain system for years to come.
