New Product: AIM - Advanced Identity Manager

New Product: AIM - Advanced Identity Manager

AIM (Advanced Identity Manager) is an innovative software platform for consolidated identity management which is being marketed internationally on a project-related basis by Advancis.

Several independent access control systems from different manufacturers can be synchronised easily, securely and across locations using the Advanced Identity Manager.  AIM acts as a superordinate “information broker” between the individual access control systems and thus enables cross-system data exchange. With AIM, each employee ideally receives only one access control card (badge) and can use this to pass through all areas that have been activated for him, regardless of which access control system or location he or she has to verify himself against.

AIM enables the continued use of existing access solutions without having to give up the advantages of standardised processes and central data maintenance.
