The GSX - Global Security Exchange event took place in Dallas, Texas this year, and acre security was lucky enough to be in attendance. It was an incredible experience for our team to meet leaders in the security industry, as well as some existing clients. From the event, we've managed to learn a lot about the industry and our acre security Visitor Management System.  

In this blog post, we had a conversation with Colm Kehoe, Business Lead for Visitor Management at acre security. He shared with us the key highlights of the event, encompassing the positive aspects, the challenges faced, and the unexpected surprises encountered.

The Good

One of the best parts of attending the GSX event was getting to meet leaders in the security industry. We were fortunate to connect with these leaders and introduce them to our cutting-edge acre security Visitor Management System, fostering new relationships along the way. It was fantastic being able to showcase our products to those who can benefit most from it.  

Another highlight of the event was the opportunity to meet with some of our existing clients. We had the chance to engage in face-to-face conversations and gather valuable feedback on our product. The positive comments we received about our system were truly invaluable, as they reinforced our confidence in our work. It was a great feeling to witness the impact our product had on our clients and to have those meaningful conversations that deepened our understanding of their needs and expectations.

The Unexpected

Despite the undeniable benefits of embracing cloud-based systems to improve cost efficiency, scalability, and flexibility, there is still some hesitation among businesses. It's incredible to see how some companies fear the move to cloud-based solutions. Security plays a significant role in businesses, and it's essential to keep records organized and secure.  

Visitor Management offers exactly that, and we believe that companies should make the move to cloud-based solutions. However, it's understandable that some may have concerns and hesitations. We heard a lot about this at the GSX event and found it to be a significant challenge in the industry. 

"It's astonishing that some companies are still hesitating to embrace the cloud, given the undeniable benefits it offers in terms of scalability, flexibility, and cost-efficiency."
