The airport ecosystem is intricate, involving various stakeholders such as passengers, airlines, government bodies, and third-party service providers. As the number of stakeholders increases, so does the potential for security risks. In response, airports are intensifying security measures, with a specific focus on mitigating insider threats. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has implemented stringent rules, necessitating comprehensive background checks and efficient badge management. Non-compliance with TSA standards can lead to significant fines for airports.
Effectively managing hundreds to thousands of employees accessing sensitive areas daily presents a substantial challenge. Thorough background checks are imperative, but the process is often intricate, particularly for smaller airports. While advanced Identity Management Systems (IDMS) exist, they can be overly complex and expensive for smaller airports. Consequently, many smaller airports resort to a combination of systems, with some still utilizing outdated pen-and-paper methods.
Acknowledging the need for a well-balanced solution that is both user-friendly and cost-effective for smaller airports, Maxxess Systems’ premier product, eFusion, seamlessly integrates to offer a comprehensive Airport Badging Solution. This turnkey approach not only simplifies but also automates background checks, reducing the likelihood of human errors associated with manual processing, all while avoiding the complexities associated with larger Identity Management Systems (IDMS). As part of the unified platform by Maxxess Systems, eFusion directly interfaces with airport’s physical access control system, effectively streamlining the entire badging process.
This innovative solution not only tackles the challenges of manual paper-based record management but also seamlessly integrates with other badging solutions and Identity Management Systems. Leveraging Maxxess Systems’ airport badging integration enables airports to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of their badging processes.
The manual handling of paper-based records introduces challenges, making airports vulnerable to unexpected audits or requests for credential updates. Human errors, such as misplacing a badge, can trigger the cancellation and reissuance of the entire badge inventory, adhering to TSA regulations.
This solution automates the generation of reports and offers intelligent notifications, promptly alerting relevant team members to expiring authorizations, necessary access control updates, or overdue badge returns. Through an intuitive portal, managers can effortlessly monitor badge issuance and status, eliminating the need for constant calls to the badging office. Streamlining the process, automated billing reports provide valuable insights into issued, returned, and expiring badges.
