Ingersoll Rand and CBORD Showcase Partnership

Security Technologies was the Platinum Sponsor of the 31st CBORD Users Group Conference in Orlando, Fla. The more than 500 representatives from colleges, universities and hospitals in attendance were offered two seminars on Door Security from Security Technologies and two seminars on our Schlage AD-Series lock platform from CBORD.

As part of the partnership between our companies, our AD-Series lock has been integrated into CBORD’s campus card solutions. This product integration was on full display in the Technology Pavilion, where Security Technologies was placed side-by-side with CBORD, allowing employees from both companies to support each other in answering attendees' questions.

At the conference, we received commitments for three new installs for a total of more than 2,500 units.

"Although CBORD has many alliances, we have a true partnership," says Beverly Vigue, vice president, Education Market for Security Technologies. "Their support of our state-of-the-art technology around the AD platform is unparalleled in both sales and software development support."

An example of this support is a phone app written by CBORD that allows a student to notify his or her dorm-room lock via a text message that they lost their keycard. Once the lock receives a command from CBORD’s CS Access, the student can enter a pin number to unlock the door. This new application was launched at the User Group Conference.

“The presence of Ingersoll Rand at the CBORD User Group Conference is extremely important to our user base," says Cindy McCall, vice president of Marketing for CBORD. "Our customers appreciate face-to-face interaction with our partners during the conference. And with Ingersoll Rand being one of our largest security partners, it’s even more important they get the opportunity to directly interact and see the Ingersoll Rand solutions up close. The AD-Series has been front and center in our marketing efforts since its launch and our clients were excited to speak directly with Ingersoll Rand representatives. We greatly appreciate the sponsorship support from Ingersoll Rand."
