Sport Manitoba Installs Brivo ACS OnSite for Security and Flexibility of Access

December 12, 2011


Brivo Systems, a provider of Software as a Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) applications for security management, claimed that its Brivo ACS OnSite is going to help Winnipeg-based Sport Manitoba manage an entire multi-use facility. Brivo is supposed to enable Sport Manitoba enjoy security and flexibility of access.

According to Brivo, its ACS (News - Alert) OnSite is a cost-effective access control solution that provides reliable, real-time access control of one’s facility. Utilizing the scalable ACS5000 control panel, ACS OnSite lets users store security data on site at their facility, without needing a dedicated PC and they can also administer the entire system using a standard Web browser.

Sport Manitoba is the planning, programming and funding agency for the development of amateur sport in Manitoba and it has 65 separate offices each representing a sport, the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, a Sport Medicine Centre, Sport Performance facility, as well as a conference center and meetings rooms. This is a unique facility and the security needs are also unique and challenging. The multi-use facility is said to have a wide range of access management needs and all the 65 sports offices should be furnished with 24/7 access and public access should be given to the Hall of Fame space during business hours whereas the medical and performance centers require separate entrances, schedules, and provisions for medical privacy.

Brivo is stated to have satisfied the requirements of Sport Manitoba which was looking for a system that would enable it to be very secure, very much in control, but also offer a high degree of flexibility.

Officials with Sport Manitoba acknowledged that they are very pleased how this Brivo system performs, it works extremely well. They have the peace of mind that their building is secure, but they have the access 150+ employees, their coaches, their volunteers, and contract staff need so that they are operating efficiently and effectively.
