Mitie names Nedap as strategic partner for access control solutions in UK

Mitie Fire & Security Systems has announced Nedap Security Management as a ‘partner of choice’ for access control solutions here in the UK. This new strategic partnership builds on an already close business relationship developed between the two organisations while working for clients in a range of sectors from large automotive manufacturing through to High Street retail outlets.

Chris Watts, director of Mitie Fire & Security Systems, explained: “Mitie’s relationship with Nedap has gone from strength to strength over the past couple of years with some important new contract wins. Nedap has a collaborative partnering approach and works proactively with our sales and operational teams to ensure we have the knowledge and expertise to support our customers and prospects.”

Mitie is one of the UK’s foremost integrators of technology-based security solutions and end-to-end managed services. The business provides highly complex security solutions for national and multinational organisations and appreciates the depth of industry insight and technical support offered by Nedap in addition to the flexibility, scalability and wide-ranging functionality of Nedap’s AEOS access control system.

Nedap believes that it “stands apart” from many other access control suppliers with its people-first approach. The company feels that, fundamentally, security isn’t just about technology. It’s also about people and how they live their daily lives. Nedap aims for its access control to free people’s minds from security and help them live life to its full potential. The company refers to this belief as ‘Security for Life’.

This fastidious approach to ensuring an optimum end user experience is reflected in Nedap’s approach to partnerships. Mark Vickers, channel partner manager at Nedap, stated: “Mitie fully committed to the Nedap channel partner programme and, as an Advanced Partner, has shown the exact qualities we strive to achieve. This gives us confidence that our end user clients’ requirements are always being met and, more often than not, exceeded.”
