FARPOINTE DATA, INC. ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF SECURITY TECHNOLOGIES GROUP AS AN EMEA MASTER DISTRIBUTOR

 

Master Distributor appointment will allow greater access to, and support for,  the extensive range of 125Khz Proximity and 13.56Mhz Smart Card readers and credentials provided by Farpointe Data, Inc..

 

READING, Berkshire "June 11, 2009 — Farpointe Data, Inc. announced today the appointment of specialist access control distributor, Security Technologies Group (STG), as a Master Distributor for their complete range of readers and credentials throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

 

"Security Technologies Group’s commitment to supplying quality products backed up by superior technical support were just some of the reasons behind our decision, however their Card Management service was the overall driving factor” said Scott Pearson, Sales Director for Farpointe Data, Inc.  "We have seen, all too often in the past, customers struggling to reorder additional cards and tags (credentials) for their systems, with the original suppliers being of little assistance.  Within their advanced Card Management software, STG are able to search via multiple criteria, in order to identify the correct technology, card format, facility code, and numbering sequence thus eliminating this headache for customers” noted Pearson.

 

This collaboration will combine Farpointe’s industry leading solutions with STG’s technical knowhow, delivery and value added capabilities which will all go to enhance the experience for their joint customers.

 

"This partnership is a natural step for STG as we have been seeking an alternative to the existing suppliers of RFID readers and credentials for some time.  Our criterion was not merely price but security, quality and value for money.  Farpointe’s products adhere to our ethos of supplying quality and value for money”, said Denis Kane, Director of Security Technologies Group.  "We recognize that a single call-out for a warranty replacement can destroy margins and customer relationships, therefore we select products designed to avoid this situation” noted Kane.
