11 Times Square Leads in Technology & Design with Fastlane® Plus
SJP Properties aimed to build an elegant and high-tech building in the heart of New York City. Eleven Times Square is that tower and SJP Properties made security an important part of the plan. Because Fastlane is the ultimate combination of elegance and technology, Fastlane Plus was a clear choice. The building installed 9 lanes, placing 3 at each elevator bank.
To further distinguish the property from competitive office towers in Manhattan, SJP Properties ordered custom pedestals which have a non-directional finish and other styling to complement the lobby aesthetics. Furthermore, they also integrated ThyssenKrupp elevator destination displays in the pedestal tops to increase convenience, speed, and security for tenants.
New Web Site & Visual Identity
We are happy to unveil our new visual identity which includes a new logo, a new look for this eNewsletter, and a new web site. Smarter Security is undergoing a transformation from the being the leading supplier of optical turnstiles to becoming a more important player in the physical security industry. This visual update signals this change and helps better reflect the company today.
The new web site illustrates both our new look and our business approach. We support our customers who want to customize their turnstiles so we have a Custom Design area that provides ideas. We’ve listened to architects and engineers and now offer A&E specs and CAD drawings easily and quickly available online without login. Take a look around and be sure to visit our Media Gallery.
Visit Us at Upcoming Events
Smarter Security will be exhibiting at several events in the next few months. We invite you to see our new look in person and demonstrate our Fastlane products and perimeter security solutions at any of these locations.
ISC West 2012 Booths #13101 and 12101 March 28-30, Las Vegas
Optical turnstiles are often part of a larger construction project and we typically receive plenty of notice to supply the lanes in time. Occasionally, we have requests for orders in less than six weeks. While we have sometimes met this need before, we’ve responded to this segment of the market by instituting a Quick Ship program to predictably deliver Fastlane turnstiles faster than ever.
Customers who order standard models with no customization will be able to receive their lanes within 2 weeks. In an initial trial phase, Quick Ship will only be available for GlassGate 150. Additional models will roll into the program starting with Fastlane Plus in April. There is no extra charge for this faster service. Ask your sales rep about it if this might help your business.
We Moved – Upgraded Headquarters
Another big change to our business is we moved our corporate headquarters. The move is just a few miles up the road, but the difference in the space is a bigger change that helps Smarter Security be a winning business partner for our customers. The new office provides nearly twice the space to accommodate headcount growth and enable new capabilities.
We now have additional meeting and training rooms as well as a new demo room to help showcase our Fastlane turnstiles. Increased and more functional space for inventory and technical operations also will allow Smarter Security to provide superior customer service cost-efficiently. Please note our new address and come visit us sometime at: 110 Wild Basin Road, Austin, TX 78746. Phone numbers are unchanged.
