Brivo Systems LLC, leader in cloud applications for security management, today announced that the Bridgestone Golf headquarters in Covington, GA, has deployed the Brivo ACS WebService® cloud-based solution to improve safety and security. Southeastern Security Professionals, LLC. (SSP), based in Suwanee, GA, is the dealer and installer for this project.

“We had outgrown our former access control system, and we tried to control access through our existing alarm system—that didn’t work out so well,” recalled Suzanne Zimmerman, Human Resources Manager, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. “The system was unreliable and difficult to operate.”

Chao Chen of SSP introduced Zimmerman to the Brivo ACS WebService solution. “We watched a demo of the system, and I loved it. The demo was a big selling point. We like how user friendly the Brivo system is and the fact that there is no software. Everything is in the cloud. When I think back to the issues we had with our old access control system—the software updates and computer glitches—we cut all that out now.”

Bridgestone Golf has installed Brivo for a mix of external and internal doors in the administrative offices, manufacturing facility, and test center. All employees and contractors for the campus are managed in about 12 different groups, providing specific privileges for each group in terms of day, time, and place of access. Along with Zimmerman, two other staff also administer the system. “I like how we can tailor the privileges for each administrator,” Zimmerman noted.

Bridgestone Golf utilizes the system’s reporting function to monitor access patterns in all their buildings. “In addition to an excellent line-up of standard reports, Brivo allows us to tailor reports to our specific needs,” Zimmerman explained.

“We’re completely satisfied with Brivo. In the limited time I spend on the system, I get everything I need from it. With the old system, I wouldn’t dare change anything. The Brivo system is everything I hoped it would be,” Zimmerman concluded.
