November 2018 saw the launch of the Argus TrueID partner program to markets in the United Kingdom and Europe. The launch event and gala dinner were held in Manchester, with over 40 leading security integrators taking part.
The event showcased Argus’ best of breed technology, giving the attendees practical examples of how biometrics can be used to meet client needs across a range of industries. The focus was on showing that by placing identity at the centre of an organisation, there’s an opportunity for Argus’s technology to reduce risk, improve business processes, deliver cost savings, and enhance the user experience.
On arrival, attendees were given a practical example of the Argus technology in action, as they were biometrically enrolled using a pre-defined identification pin number via one of the two interactive True ID biometric terminals. The True ID Terminal workflow then welcomed each attendee personally via the 7” interactive touch screen following identification, directing each guest to join the first presentation session of the day.
The official proceedings started with a range of sessions covering the Argus program and the benefits it brings our partners. The day sessions also covered the biometric opportunity, showing potential partners the role the technology can play in solving a range of business challenges where certainty of identity is required, including for markets such as Corrections, Banking and Finance, and Data Centres.
The session concluded with a gala dinner, where partner certificates were presented to new channel members Reliance High Tech and Hunter Group. The night included a charity raffle in support of the We Love Manchester Emergency fund, established to support the victims and their families from the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.
Richard McClellan, Argus TrueID Regional Director – Europe, was excited by the reaction of the attendees. “The room had an incredibly upbeat feel to it, I could sense that all the attendees could see the potential that biometrics solutions can bring to a range of verticals and industries” McClellan commented. “For Argus, it was an exciting opportunity to introduce our biometric technology in practical way, giving the attendees a chance to interact with Argus TrueID platform. The feedback on this has been incredibly positive, and I’m looking forward to working with our partner channel to deliver solutions that solve a range of business challenges”
