Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies / Salamander Technologies Provide Single ID Card Joint Accountability/Access Control

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of security and safety solutions and manufacturer of contactless smart credentials and readers, and Salamander Technologies, the nation’s leading supplier of tracking solutions and field-based incident management tools, announced today that people who use a smart card to gain access into a building can now use that same ID card for accountability purposes outside the building. The dual-purposed aptiQ™ smart card can incorporate Salamander’s interTRAX® suite of accountability solutions, resulting in a multi-function ID that fulfills daily access control and other smart card-based tasks within the building, as well as personnel tracking outside the building during planned events, natural disasters or emergencies.

“This new integration is a smart solution for organizations wanting to improve their ROI,” emphasizes Russ Miller, Salamander Technologies president. “Groups already using Ingersoll Rand’s aptiQ smart cards can now extend its functionality to include our accountability solution. Those just starting an identification program can get an ID with both solutions built in from the start.”

“Computerized incident management, site security and personnel accountability have become major responsibilities for corporate management, not just first responders and government agencies,” adds Raj Venkat, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies vice president, marketing. “Using MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 technology and an open architecture, the aptiQ smart card provides a higher level of security and a way to increase the security of access control solution today while providing a pathway to other smart credential applications, such as incorporating Salamander’s interTRAX suite of accountability solutions.”

Salamander Technologies pioneered the concept of electronic tracking and accountability in early 2001. Their solution set the standard in the industry and is used by more than 5,000 agencies nationwide. The company’s pedigree lies in its ability to create high-capacity ID cards and site passes and then use those cards to track anyone at the site of an incident including first responders, mutual aid, victims, evacuees, visitors and others. The company’s “Data-in-the-Tag™” advantage uses PDF 417 barcodes, RFID and smart card technologies to increase site security, health and safety, time savings, and federal reimbursements.

Both Salamander Technologies and Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies are suppliers to the Identification Systems Group, a nationwide network of local experts in identification, security and card personalization. Each company works together to provide seamless nationwide support and collaboration in the identification and card issuance industry.
