Johnson Controls is launching the Workforce notifier plug-in solution, which adds significant real-life practical benefits to the Tyco Software House C-Cure 9000 security and event management platform.
Developed by Encode Labs, a Johnson Controls’ technology partner, the Workforce Notifier plug-in sends e-mails or SMS text messages to employees and contractors to alert them they are in danger of being locked out of a site because their access control card credentials have expired or will be expiring in the near future.
The alerts, which are sent at configurable intervals via a customisable template that can include an organisation’s logo, provide the recipient with an overview of the expiring dates of all their credentials, as well as notification that a specific credential urgently needs to be updated. This could, for example, relate to a work permit or that a medical examination is due, and provides the option to attach documentation which sets out renewal procedures.
Management of multiple expiration dates
Workforce Notifier also facilitates the management of multiple expiration dates on a single personnel record. It is able to do so directly from C-Cure 9000’s Personnel Editor, or from records fed from the databases of third-party human resource (HRM), Health and Safety and visitor management systems.
When expiration dates are imported from an HRM system such as SAP Workday, the plug-in automatically processes any changes and seamlessly enforces the new dates on the existing credentials, removing the need to make manual changes.
