Customers & Partners – The Bottom Line: Addressing the C-Suite

WE ADD VALUE TO YOUR BOTTOM LINE.

We understand that the executive team must balance the budget, as well as the security needs of the company. That’s why we will help you address your security needs in the most cost-effective manner– not just at the point of sale, but over the entire lifetime of your portal deployment.

YOUR TRUE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

CAPEX

▸ Moderate portal cost in order to deliver robust, high quality equipment with long product life, and minimal unexpected repairs and maintenance
▸ Low installation costs
▸ No costly construction of “pits” in the floor – very important to include the demolition and construction costs in to the actual portal cost when comparing competitive products. Additionally, cost associated with productivity loss, especially in high traffic corridors, due to long installation must be accounted for as well.
▸ No other major facility modifications
▸ Portals are form, fit and function tested at the factory ensuring portals are “plug and play” during installation
▸ Long portal operating lifetime due to high quality components and modular design means that portals need to be replaced at far longer intervals than competitor’s products

OPEX

▸ 24/7 Technical Support direct from AACS (for direct sales accounts) via phone or internet support portal
▸ Cycle DATA can be downloaded from the Main Control and emailed to AACS for troubleshooting assistance
▸ Support is available via phone
▸ Support is available via internet
▸ Control Console provides security personnel with real time info
▸ Console provides real-time health monitoring to predict potential failures enabling scheduling of repairs instead of emergency repairs
▸ Minimizes costs associated with posting of guard(s) at portals during down-time
▸ Enables ordering of components ahead of time to further minimize downtime
▸ Alerts security personnel of attempted security breaches
▸ Monitors up to 8 portals at a time per console
▸ Wear components are designed to be easily and quickly replaced
▸ 100% US made with US parts
▸ Spare/replacement parts are readily available and can be stored at customer’s facility
▸ For the rare failure of non-wear items, limited downtime, parts are shipped to your location within 24 hours
▸ No long shipping times from overseas suppliers and no waiting times for parts to clear customs
▸ Standard maintenance easily performed by trained onsite personnel (no need for qualified service technician)
▸ High quality and reliability means very high mean time between failures
▸ High quality, precision-made and robust components manufactured in the U.S.
▸ Very low failure rate, 1 failure for every 346,000 cycles
▸ Cabins are made from U.S. steel
▸ Parts are the best quality available and manufactured in the U.S.
▸ Portals are designed with the technician in mind
▸ Designed by technicians for ease of repairs – use of highly modular system design enables simple and fast repairs
▸ Lube points are readily accessible
▸ Simple to assemble
▸ Easy to inspect
▸ Simple and fast to install
▸ Portals enable simple updates, upgrades and future-proofing
▸ Modular design enables long-term future proofing, updates and upgrades
▸ Accepts all sensors that have normally open or closed contacts
▸ Spare contact points to add additional sensors
▸ New technology and upgrades can be added with minimal programming changes

THE TRUE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

▸ Rapid return on investment
▸ Physically posting a Security Officer at an entrance 24/7 can cost over $100,000 per year per location and is a recurring annual expense
▸ Human guards are susceptible to outside influences, high error rates in high stress (high traffic) situations and cannot maintain high throughput and high vigilance
▸ Purchasing an AACS security portal is a one time expense with very low maintenance and operating expenses
▸ Using the AACS Console represents a force multiplier enabling human oversight to focus on only problematic access or portal issues thus increasing overall efficiency of security protocols while reducing capital expenditures
▸ Long operating life
▸ AACS portals are not designed to be cheap, but are designed to be robust and reliable to lower total cost of ownership
▸ Portals are designed to be easily refurbished to like-new condition to extend operating life far beyond competitor’s products
▸ Very low total cost of ownership per year

How to calculate:

CAPEX = Cost of portal + cost of installation + (if applicable) cost of on-site security officer during install

OPEX per cycle = (Average cost of maintenance per year/ number of portal cycles per year) + (Average cost of repair/ number of cycles between failures)

EPL = Expected portal lifetime in years

YEARLY TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP = CAPEX/ EPL + (OPEX x Cycles per YEAR)
