Galaxy Control Systems unveils new solution
LAS VEGAS—Galaxy Control Systems, a provider of integrated access control and security solutions, at ISC West 2017 unveiled its new Galaxy Cloud Concierge, a cloud-based access control and monitoring solution.
“Security professionals—both channel and end users—are recognizing the operational and cost benefits of a hosted collaborative access control solution,” Rick Caruthers, executive vice president, Galaxy Control Systems, said in a prepared statement. “With Cloud Concierge, we’ve reduced the complexity to allow resellers to comfortably sell a cost-effective solution to their base without having to assume responsibilities associated with system monitoring and management.”
Galaxy Control Systems is offering Cloud Concierge in three configurations:
Option one is an on-site, user-managed, cloud-based system. The customer purchases (or leases) the equipment from an authorized reseller/integrator who installs the system and provides training.
Option two is a remote cloud-based, user-managed integrated system. Equipment is purchased or leased from an authorized reseller/integrator who installs the hardware and provides training. The reseller hosts the integrated system with Galaxy System tools, including the mobile apps, and the user manages the activity.
Option three is a remote cloud-based, reseller/integrator managed integrated system. Equipment can be existing or new, and the reseller both hosts the system and manages the activity.
“The value proposition of Galaxy Cloud Concierge is easily articulated to both the reseller and the end user,” Caruthers said. “For the reseller, it offers recurring revenue and for the user, it eliminates upfront investment and ongoing maintenance costs.”
Caruthers continued, “By joining the Cloud Concierge program, integrators who specialize and excel in their specific areas can focus on what they do best rather than trying to provide an end-to-end solution themselves. Best of all, by working with trusted partners to deploy, administer and maintain systems, end users can devote their time and energy to their core business and operations.”
