Pitney Bowes India Introduces LobbyTracT - a High Security Visitor Management System for Corporates and Offices
New Delhi, Delhi, India, Wednesday, April 11, 2012 -- (Business Wire India) -- Pitney Bowes India, a part of Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), the global technology company launched LobbyTracT visitor management solutions. These innovative security solutions are designed to enhance the security set-up through the first level of control and management, essential for protecting critical assets and infrastructure. LobbyTracT visitor management solutions offer an effective, easy to manage option to help with visitor management, tracking, regulating and enforcing security across all critical installations, offices, buildings, government offices, etc.
This new suite of Visitor Management Solutions is designed to meet the diverse security needs of public and private organizations and has been delivered through Pitney Bowes' Solutions Factory, a dedicated team of developers leveraging Pitney Bowes' patented technologies to customise solutions for the specific needs of local clients under the Growth Markets region.
According to Mr. KM Nanaiah Managing Director - Pitney Bowes India, "Organizations are constantly faced with the challenge of managing visitor entry into their facility. Providing selective access to visitors even on an ad hoc basis and restricting access only to approved areas is becoming even more complex to administer. Given the need to enhance security, reduce interceptions in work place and potential security breaches, the need for a technology-based solution that would allow movement of visitors to be managed and regulated - especially in critical areas of the building or facility is quite evident. Today, more and more organisations see the need to manage visitor activity. With the launch of LobbyTracT Visitor Management Solutions, organisations can address these concerns without having to make structural changes in order to implement a comprehensive visitor management system ".
The security appliances market in H1 2010 was $61 mn and the market is growing a CAGR of 18% since 2007 and is estimated to reach $180 mn by 2012. This growth has been fuelled by increased spending on security infrastructure and solutions especially by verticals like IT/ITeS, government and BFSI. The trend in the market is now towards integrated security solutions rather than standalone applications. (Source: IDC India: Customer Satisfaction Audit 2011).
LobbyTracT offers customized Visitor Management Solutions that streamline the process of visitor management and empower organizations to control access to their facilities. Visitor information is accurately and quickly captured for easy tracking while maintaining confidentiality, reducing the risks of security breaches.
Said Mr. Ranvir Singh, Vice President, Solutions Factory - Pitney Bowes Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa & Latin America, "Managing the access of unauthorized personnel into a facility continues to be a major concern for companies worldwide. LobbyTracT Visitor Management Solutions are customized to manage visitor activity and meet the needs of various types of organizations, such as government agencies, hospitals, corporations and schools. These organisations are able to quickly and effectively implement the solutions to monitor and track visitor activity, enhance overall security as well as their corporate image."
