VI Connect

Vanderbilt VI Connect integrates Vanderbilt’s Security Management System (SMS) with third-party applications by automating business workflows between disparate systems. Designed for enterprise and higher education facilities, VI Connect dramatically reduces the time it takes to update records in multiple systems, and allows users to automate management of door access, One Card transactions, event management and privilege control systems.

VI Connect helps to reduce the workload of system administrators and eliminates the need to manually input data into multiple systems. The system allows for real-time, detailed management of student or employee records such as university or office affiliation, dormitory assignment or course enrollment. Privileges based on this data help to determine an employee or student’s access control permissions, which are automatically assigned in the SMS.

Access Control Trends in the Education Sector

Vanderbilt end users, technology partners and integrators will participate in the SIA Education@ISC panel, “Access Control Trends in the Education Sector,” from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, April 7, in Room 307 in the Sands Expo Center. Moderated by Martha Entwistle, Editor of Security Systems News, the session will explore trends in access control in an educational setting, how integration plays a key role and ways in which universities can utilize their access control systems in an emergency situation. Representatives from the College of Saint Rose and Ripon College will be on hand to discuss the threats today’s universities face and how these threats can be mitigated through advances in access control technology.
