Security tour management tool simplifies reporting

TDSi : 07 March, 2008  (New Product)
TDSi's eXtour security tour management tool is a new addition that fully integrates with the company's range of access control readers.
Traditional guard tour management systems have relied on specialist equipment, such as wands, to capture data during the course of a security tour; only at the end of the tour could the data be downloaded to allow it to be analysed and reported.

Using TDSi's proven eXguard PRO software, eXtour eliminates the need for such equipment, allowing each guard tour pattern to be separately configured and providing real time information and control.

The configuration of eXtour defines each designated reader within the overall access control system that is to be included in the tour as well as the defined order in which the guard's card must be presented to the readers as well as the time frame, after the start of the tour, in which the card must be presented to each reader.

If the guard presents their card to the readers in the correct order and within the specified time, the system identifies that correct procedures are being followed and reports accordingly. However, if the card is presented too early, it suggests that the guard may have missed elements of the tour and a flag is raised on the system. If it is presented too late, or not at all, it may be an indication that the guard requires assistance and, if specified, an alarm is raised.

From the security managers perspective, eXtour offers a range of features, including a comprehensive 'overview' control screen, showing in real-time, the status of all active tours, with a Tour Alarm pane, showing any alarms raised by early or late card presentation.

In addition, the system incorporates a comprehensive reporting tool that allows completed tours to be summarised and analysed. Reports may be configured and printed to provide a detailed assessment of staff productivity and provide a full audit trail if needed; the system also includes a comprehensive, in-built help system.
