Adirondack Adds PERSONA Button to Configuration Panel

December 19, 2008 — Adirondack Solutions, Inc. now features a dedicated button on its software configuration panel for PERSONA-powered locksets, making it easier than ever to integrate the card reader locking system into a campus run by Adirondack’s housing management software.

This configuration update makes PERSONA, an ASSA ABLOY Group technology, the only locking system to be featured on the Adirondack software setup panel. PERSONA powered locksets are offered by ASSA ABLOY Group brands CORBIN RUSSWIN, SARGENT and VingCard.

The PERSONA and Adirondack software are interfaced together, eliminating the need for school to maintain separate databases for access control and campus transaction systems. Changes to data brought about by enrollment or other status changes can be easily communicated to all systems with greater speed.

With an integrated system, every ID card is automatically encoded with access control privileges recognized by the PERSONA lockset and all on-line systems associated with the Adirondack system. The compatible software platform provides convenience for both campus administrators and students; campus personnel spend less time maintaining data, while students are able to access buildings, rooms, meal plans, vending machines, POS systems and other verified systems with a single card.

“Linking our software systems provides the higher education marketplace the benefit of not only having a one-card system, but also more importantly, a single database system for issuing and maintaining the cards,” said Angelo Faenza, PERSONA General Manager. “Our stand alone locking solution coupled with the Adirondack system will simplify life for campus administrators and students.”
