Charles Johnson Presents Campus Safety Security Solutions at ASCUE Education Conference

Open Options’ Southeast Regional Sales Manager Charles Johnson has been invited to share innovative campus security solutions to educators and administrators representing all areas of North America at the Association Supporting Computer Users in Education (ASCUE) conference to be held June 14-18, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

ASCUE is an international community of individuals committed to the innovation, implementation, and furtherance of technology trends, equipment, and practices within higher education. ASCUE is a major catalyst for technology innovation and, as such, provides leadership and opportunities for collaboration to members.

“I’m excited to share our many campus security solutions with a key group of educators and IT administrators who understand the importance of technology in safety,” said Johnson. “There are a variety of safety concerns that are unique to the campus environment and Open Options has a great deal of experience in successfully providing access control to end users in higher education.”

At ASCUE, Johnson will discuss Open Options’ flagship product — DNA Fusion access control software — and its suite of supporting applications including Fusion Mobile, Fusion Web, and Fusion ID. Together these applications with hardware and badges can provide a campus-wide solution that includes building access, dorm security, and student safety.

Johnson was invited to the conference by existing Open Options Customer and ASCUE member Hollis Townsend with Young Harris College. Townsend will also give a presentation at the ASCUE conference on how Young Harris College has transitioned from a proprietary access control solution to Open Options and DNA Fusion — an open architecture solution.

“There are so many benefits to an open architecture access control system like Open Options and DNA Fusion in the education environment,” said Johnson. “Access control technology, for example, can help law enforcement to lock down a door, building, or campus while at the same time allow for a first responder to have access to the area that might be locked down. These issues are so relevant to today’s campus safety threats and we are grateful for the opportunity to share this valuable information with this select group.”
