The versatility of the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal to be incorporated into site specific requirements with access control software integration has earned the business of a broad range of construction and industrial customers across the United States and around the world.
Historically MAC Portals have been built using turnstiles provided by a number of turnstile manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada. Taking the site specific needs of customers into consideration MSSI has used turnstiles offered by Boon Edam, Alvarado, and Controlled Access Turnstiles. According to David Johnson, International sales for MSSI, “more often than not we have customers that come to us with site specific needs and an idea of the type of turnstiles and access control they want in their MAC Portal. We are glad to work with multiple turnstile manufacturers to do whatever it takes to provide the right product for the right customer. After a customer comes to us looking for a specific type of high security turnstile we reach out to our turnstile manufacturers to help land the sale”, commented Mr. Johnson.
By partnering with different high security turnstile vendors such as Boon Edam, Alvarado, and Controlled Access Turnstiles, MSSI is able to stay competitive and offer a wider range of products to meet the ever changing needs of their customers. “The ability to meet the customer’s needs by making them part of the design process is what, I feel, sets us apart from the competition”, added Mr. Johnson. “By taking their specifications in mind, implementing them into the design process we give the customer a feeling of ownership in the product, and make the entire sales process as simple as possible from design to installation."
Perimeter security systems and perimeter fence security with integrated access control software are becoming a necessity, if not a requirement, on many major industrial construction sites. In order to meet the demand for perimeter security solutions numerous access control software security systems have become available through a wide range of security companies. MSSI has worked with a wide range of access control companies, software, and hardware integrators to meet the demands of customers with site specific needs.
A number of access control software solutions have been implemented for security systems like the Patented MAC Portal. Once integrated with access control hardware and software the MAC Portal can be dropped into any perimeter fence security location and is fully functional. Built with site specific security software and access control the MAC security Portal is a versatile solution that can operate as a standalone unit or can be tied into an existing security database at the site.
Access control software is available through companies like Lenel Systems International, Softwarehouse, and S2 Security. Customers can find the right software to integrate into their MAC Portal as part of their perimeter fence security system by shopping the various access control providers around the world. Co-President of MSSI, Robert Slagel notes that” The MAC Portal can come integrated with the any security software necessary to meet the site specific needs of any industrial construction site.” He continued, “Having the capability to use security software such as Integra32, Entrapass, Lenel and C-Cure our customers are given the opportunity to decide what software would work best for them.”
