Security Integration offered with end-to-end Tech from Quanika and Axis Communications

A vendor partnership between Quanika and Axis Communications in the United States will open an easier path to off-the-shelf systems integration for systems integrators, dealers and their customers.

The end-to-end offering, supported from Quanika’s new office in Florida, will enable consultants and systems integrators using Axis video, access, and audio hardware to create seamless management solutions on projects of all sizes.

Software vendor Quanika provides end-to-end solutions for a wide range of applications, from small- and medium-scale projects, up to enterprise level.

“The company is predicting growth in demand for unified management solutions that encompass security, safety, building management and databases allowing integration with corporate systems for human resources, workflow scheduling, and visitor management. These solutions - which are now straightforward to implement, maintain, and extend - are helping users to benefit from data intelligence providing insight on all aspects of activity on their premises,” said Leo Coo, general manager at Quanika. “As building use and occupancy patterns change, the ability of companies to make decisions based on granular data from access, video and other systems will become ever more important.”

Over the last 18 months, Quanika has been addressing these and other common challenges solved by systems integration, strengthening its partnership with the world’s most-trusted video and access control brand, Axis Communications. The tech collaboration, under which Quanika has joined the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program, has proven effective in Europe, opening up easier project delivery paths and resulting in major implementations in sectors including healthcare, logistics, manufacturing and mixed-use commercial developments.

“There’s a pressing market need for easy, yet comprehensive systems integration and a modularized approach addresses this,” said Bruce Stewart, business development manager, Axis Door Solutions. “Quanika’s off-the-shelf integration with Axis hardware, site-specific devices and other third-party VMS platforms makes seamless integration easier for users. We are eager to welcome our partner, Quanika, to the Americas and are pleased to have their solutions available to our partners and end customers.”

Quanika Compact and Enterprise access control software primarily benefits users looking to leverage the power of Axis Communications’ AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller and A1601 Network Door Controller for unlimited doors and users, and integrate AXIS Camera Station as well as Milestone VMS.

Thanks to reduced cost and complexity, Quanika Compact is a practical choice for small- to medium-applications in healthcare, retail, manufacturing, logistics and similar locations, giving users the ability to tie together and flexibly manage multiple sites.

Quanika Enterprise is designed for large scale facilities and organizations that need unlimited cardholders and enterprise level functionality without the price tag, including multi-purpose buildings, hotels, transportation hubs, hospitals, and universities, giving organizations complete control and situational awareness across their entire estates globally.
