Today, Financial Institutions are under increased scrutiny to save money, protect their employees and customers, and improve function in this fast changing technical environment. IntraWorks takes a proactive approach to these issues by studying new industry trends in financial institutions facilities and applying electronic building system technology to help save money, reduce risk, and improve function. Additionally, IntraWorks uses a comprehensive approach to financial institutions by considering ALL the electronic building systems when planning the next upgrade, move, add or change. IntraWorks offers a comprehensive line of ATM and in-teller machines to add functionality to the branch. These newer machines function to automate transactions normally only available with a live person. This frees up time for other tellers to sell new products and services. Lastly, IntraWorks offers constant commissioning and predictive maintenance in order to save building life cycle, costs. (Up to 10x according to the Department of Energy – O&M Best Practices)
Financial Institutions are targets to both insider and outsider threats to include theft of cash, asset, merchandise, and financial data, robbery, workplace violence, active shooter and vandalism. Branch and office managers are charged with the protection and safety of large groups of people to include the public along with their employees. By use of integrated CCTV, access control, automated vault access, and intrusion systems, IntraWorks can help to reduce the likelihood of injury to the branch occupants and provide valuable investigative information if an incident takes place. Video and Audio analytics can detect theft of cash, burglary, robbery, workplace violence, count how many people stand in line, and even detect the sound of a gun being fired. Special purpose radios or communicators can also add security and function by keeping staff informed up to the minute of any emergencies, requests, orders, or special needs. Teller line integration can safe tellers valuable time and improve accuracy.
Financial Institutions utilize a lot of energy and resources to provide a pleasant environment for its customers and employees. IntraWorkscan provide systems that save energy costs and make the building more comfortable to work or visit. By use of advanced climate controls, energymanagement, lighting control, daylight harvesting systems, sub-metering, and constant commissioning, our financial institution solutions can help to savein overall energy life cycle costs. IntraWorks can provide a dashboard for facility managers of energy management usage for all the branches in one simpleand easy to use interface.
Financial Institutions are held to tight safety standards for the protection of employees and customers by authorities having jurisdiction. IntraWorks can provide systems that avoid injury and save lives in an emergency. By use of robbery notification systems and panic buttons, fire detection and evacuation, critical systems monitoring, paging, and CCTV systems, emergencies are detected early and building occupants are evacuated or redirected rapidly and authorities are called to help. Bullet resistant glass and door releases can assist in the protection of branch employees and customers. Lastly,drive up systems not only add convenience for customers, but also provide protection for branch workers in less safe areas and times of the day.
By truly integrating Security, Energy, and Safety Systems together, a store becomes more intelligent and efficient. Customers and employees are more comfortable, informed, and work more effectively. Integrating systems is a plus sum situation whereby the effectiveness of each system is augmented by becoming connected to other systems. For example: Branches and Offices that use the security system to sense occupancy or provide remote control functions can reduce electric and HVAC costs when occupants are not present. Fire Systems that use the HVAC system to evacuate smoke can save lives in a burning building. Robbery and Intercom/Communication systems that utilize CCTV verification are more effective. When all of these systems are connected and the information becomes available to authorized persons on their smart phone, computer, or tablet, the efficiency and effectiveness are unmatched by any individual system. Simply put… Intelligent buildings work better and use less energy.
