Devimo migrates to Sky-Walker3

Devimo Consult specialises in the management of shopping centres and retail parks, and assists their owners with all complex aspects of property management in order to maximise the value of the assets. Devimo Consult manages more than 1400 sites, one of the largest being ‘The W Shopping’ in Woluwe (Belgium).

Here, the Sky-Walker Integration Platform is used to monitor and control security systems as well as technical installations, such as elevators, heating, air conditioning and lighting systems. Furthermore, Sky-Walker helps manage the security aspect of the shopping centre, allowing a reduction of guard services and providing a follow-up of guard missions. For instance, with Sky-Walker it is possible to track guards during their security control, making sure the complete area is covered. 

Benefits for 'the W Shopping'

Currently, Entelec's Project Engineers in Belgium are working on migrating the complete system to the latest version of Sky-Walker. The reason for this migration was an update of the Shopping Centre's entire computer system to Windows 7.

The Sky-Walker migration will offer the shopping centre several benefits, inculding

  • A modern interface
  • Service oriented architecture environment
  • Extended reporting possibilites
  • Seperate operational and configuration client

DIEPENBEEK - In the early 90's Miet and her husband started Entelec Control Systems, a software company that specialises in the design and implementation of integration platforms which efficiently manage multiple security, safety and building systems.

 23 years later we have offices in England, The Netherlands and France. Germany is next, followed by The United States.” Miet says. 

 “With our solutions implemented on a worldwide basis, we know what hard work is. I do not have the impression that clients treat me less seriously because I am a woman. I have conducted a lot of business in the Middle East which is a male dominated culture. However even though I closed a lot of contracts in Abu Dhabi, it was difficult in the early stages to find the right approach. I was dealing with men who were initially surprised to negotiate with a confident woman in charge. But I believe that was the little extra that persuaded them to sign the contract.”

 However Miet advises that “Unfortunately there are not that many women working in this particular IT sector which is a pity. I believe women are capable of providing extra value in this business. But I believe women must improve their negotiating skills, especially with regard to their salary. Women should be confident in their own value and not compromise so easily on salary levels.”

Proud member of 'Fondation Louis Vuitton'

We are pleased to announce that Entelec France is one of the first members of the 'Fondation Louis Vuitton' in Paris. Landed as a cloud in the green Bois de Boulogne, the Louis Vuitton Foundation is already the second most visited site in Paris, next to the Eiffel Tower.

Fondation Louis Vuitton_interieur

The incredible and extraordinary architectural adventure, through an exhibition devoted to the building, confirms this highly technical and innovating project. That’s why the Frank Gehry building completely suits the innovating and highly technical image of Entelec.

Franck Gehry, one of the most talented architects of his generation was one of the pioneers of the application of software in construction. Like Entelec, this example of non-standard architecture, focuses the role of digital tools and the importance of Research and development. That’s why we are very enthusiastic about this membership.

Are you interested in visiting the “Fondation Louis Vuitton”? Contact us and we will share with you the dynamic and vibrant journey through the building, full of detours and discoveries. You will have the change to plunge into the creative and innovating world of Frank Gehry.

Frank Gehry was born in Toronto in 1929. He received his Bachelor degree of Architecture in 1954 at University of Southern California. His agency was created in 1962 and he was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1989. He was a visiting professor at Yale and Harvard.

3 tips to increase revenue & heighten your security

3 tips to increase revenue & heighten your security

Are you accumulating growing amounts of safety & security data in your database(s)? Without the right tools, data is only facts and numbers. Extracting real value from this data however is a must for today’s modern business. 

The goal is to analyse your data from different perspectives in order to create useful information. You use this information to increase revenue, cut costs or ideally - both. Here are three tips to do so, as well as heighten your security using Sky-Walker3. 

 

Start with dashboards

Get an at-a-glance overview of various elements with Sky-Walker dashboards. Summaries, trends and comparisons are easily visualized with pie charts or diagrams. From here, you are able to get into the more detailed statistics. And the best part is: What you see is fully customizable to your business’ KPIs. 

 

Optimise manpower

Connect incidents to date & time of occurrence and (re)locate your staff accordingly. Based on incoming events or crowd management, for example, guards are present where and when they are required. This way, you see the situation evolve and are able to work towards the best possible solution. And adjust when needed.

 

Get the most out of system maintenance 

Is the frequency of your maintenance interventions customized to your needs? Is your actual systems’ uptime lower than agreed? Based on Sky-Walker’s generated data, you are able to keep track of this information and therefore make your systems last longer.

One of our most recent cases included implementing a “bonus-malus” in order to eliminate unnecessary maintenance costs. This way, you either reward or penalize your service providers based on their own service-level agreement.


There’s so much more you can do with your data! Would you like more information? More details? Or just a good conversation? Don’t hesitate and contact us today

First large-scale Sky-Walker3 migration project

First large-scale Sky-Walker3 migration project

One of our most prestigious multisite projects is now fully running on the new Sky-Walker3 Integration Platform. The transfer from the previous generation was initially required in order to meet the new Microsoft Windows IT policies.

However, this opportunity created a few especially profitable improvements, such as:
- Service oriented architecture environment
- Extended workflow management
- Advanced dashboards & statistics
- Fully integrated IP Matrix
- Inclusion of vectorial floor plans, automatically scaled to monitors and screens

The earlier mentioned compliancy with very strict IT policies weren't to be taken for granted. The migration therefore took more time than usual.

Although now up and running, we are still expanding components and functionalities. Future project features include:
- Native plan zooming
- LDAP integration

Because of obvious security reasons, we unfortunately cannot reveal the client's identity. We would still via this way like to thank them for their patience and cooperation.
