alfrednet designs and delivers intelligent security solutions offering reliable security management for small through to large, multi-site applications. Our main focus is to deliver flexible, scalable and open-architecture solutions. alfrednet's core business is systems integration.
Systems integration does not mean delivering a platform from a specific vendor that can connect to all systems provided by the same vendor. Meanwhile, integration does not mean fitting couple of systems into a building. For alfrednet, system integration means hardware knowledge, application knowledge, software development, the ability to 'play' with multiple pieces and 'glue' them using 'custom developed integration layers' in order to deliver a fully functional solution 100% customized for user operational requirements. And more important, we help our customers to define the needs, for short, medium and long term, and design the solution in such a manner to easily, efficiently and cost-effectively assimilate client's small, medium and even complex changes within organizational and operational structure.
There are different scenarios available while we are being selected to deliver: adapt to existing infrastructure (existing systems) or delivering a complete solution. Both scenarios can generate additional scripts.
Our security & intelligence solutions portfolio is created in such a manner to cover and support a variety of scenarios. In addition, alfrednet has the capability to deal with any existing solution through its partnerships with multiple world leading vendors. Delivering a solution always depend on several factors such as client's operational needs and budget. These are two main elements that define the technical architecture. Therefore, at alfrednet, we are capable to deliver brick-by-brick (phased implementation) as well as complete solutions.
This is the reason why we list a part of solutions we provide, so that our clients to know that yes, we can deliver video surveillance only, or to add after intrusion, access control, fire, and any other necessary system, and collect their alarms into the video platform, for example, or deliver the access control and bring video to it, or deliver both subsystems, but limited in functionalities based on client's requirements and integrate both using an integration software platform and add to it custom developed applications, third party applications and so on.
All we deliver has something in common: IT and networking. It's all about client to understand the benefits and ROI, to understand the value. In most cases, initial investment might be higher, but compared with the savings and operations improvements gained after investing a bit more in the right solution implemented by the right partner, turns to be cheaper overall. So the right question is: are you sure you are saving?
