Traka integrates with Gallagher to create lone central management platform

Traka has integrated with global technology specialist Gallagher’s powerful Command Centre system to enable end users to operate from one central platform when maintaining critical key and equipment management.

The seamless integration with Gallagher Command Centre ensures complete data integrity with Traka, allowing end users to create a system to benefit from key efficiencies. This includes granting access levels and receiving Traka events and alarms on an individual and group level in real-time.

End users can benefit from a single credential operation for both door access and keys and equipment managed by Traka, which can be controlled by time and day on an automatic basis, with instant audit control reporting as and when required.

Steve Bell, Gallagher’s CTO, stated: “Gallagher Command Centre is powerful software that’s fully-scaleable and supported by continuous investment in R&D. Traka’s a natural integration partner for us. This integration enhances complete site control, centralised site visibility and real-time monitoring, ensuring situational awareness for all assets on both local and remote sites both safely and securely.”

Traka software has been designed to support intelligent key and equipment management control with a significant number of benefits and additional functionality. This includes varying staff access to selected items and providing curfew functionality to ensure keys are checked out and returned in specific, defined time allocations.

The newest updates to Traka now presented to Gallagher Command Centre users include dedicated fault logging, whereby issues with keys and assets can be reported with a capability to ‘lock-in’ the asset until its fixed to reduce downtime and disruption.

Kyle Arterton, integration manager at Traka, informed Risk Xtra: “This is a truly exciting integration for Traka, whereby together we’re delivering a significant future-proof technology that paves the way for users to benefit from one complete building control system. Gallagher Command Centre and Traka can create an environment with improved efficiency, decreased downtime and significantly reduced administrative overheads.”
