The AMAG Story
Symmetry secures customers large and small in most verticals globally.
AMAG’s [Javelin Smart] card readers provided a simple, yet reliable solution to DPD’s needs that not only enhanced their security capabilities but unified their processes to create a more efficient and user-friendly work environment for personnel.
The unique flexibility offered by Symmetry ultimately allowed us to customize the security of each building to our client’s needs, creating a streamlined and effective solution. The performance of the Symmetry system has been excellent, and Konar is extremely happy with the choices we made for their property.
Based on my professional assessment of the systems [JN Bank] was using presently, AMAG’s Symmetry System was the clear solution. Symmetry was the most unified, seamless platform that satisfied the various needs.
We have such a great relationship with AMAG that it made perfect sense to migrate our video systems to Symmetry CompleteView Video Management. CompleteView was easy to install, maintain and manage, and it integrated with Symmetry Access Control.
