Vanderbilt has announced the completion of its purchase of Access Control Technology (ACT). The ACT brand will be added to the Vanderbilt portfolio, and includes ACTpro, ACTenterprise and ACT365. Vanderbilt will capitalize on ACT’s market share in Ireland and the UK in addition to introducing the products to North American customers and partners.
ACT’s ACT365, is an integrated, cloud-based access control and video management software solution that brings additional depth to Vanderbilt’s product line. The software-as-a-service model brings a recurring revenue model to Vanderbilt and its channel partners. ACT365 provides stakeholders with the ability to manage system administration and management from anywhere, at any time and on any device.
“The ACT business is a strategic fit with the Vanderbilt brand, capitalising on its strong, profitable business in the UK and Ireland,” said Joe Grillo (pictured), CEO at Vanderbilt. “The addition of an integrated access control and video platform is a logical step in the direction of growing our business on an international scale in the areas of access control, video and intrusion. Hosted, cloud-based systems are gaining in popularity in the security arena, becoming the logical way forward in future-proofing a facility’s security posture.”
