Access control for the Flemish Government’s sites across Belgium and other European countries will be handled by Nedap’s AEOS. The institution has awarded a 6-year framework contract, beginning in September 2020, to Nedap channel partner G4S. This will involve G4S replacing the technology for more than 4,000 doors with AEOS. The new AEOS system will accommodate up to 50 software users and will feature various integrations, including visitor management, automatic number plate recognition, mobile readers and QR code readers.
The agreement with G4S replaces another supplier which had served consecutive framework contracts and had technology installed on more than 2,000 doors. The Flemish Government was looking for an open system that would provide the freedom to select which technology it integrates and which installers it works with. The Government also wanted to streamline its systems and processes. It currently has a wide mix of access control systems at its premises in various locations and will use AEOS to introduce more standardisation.
“We’re looking forward to working with G4S and Nedap on this project,” said the Flemish Government’s Tom van de More. “The detailed conversations they conducted during the tender process reassured us that we’ll receive a high-quality system and service. AEOS has the flexibility to adapt to our needs at each location, however intricate the demands, while standardising our processes nationally and internationally.”
