FIREFLY SYSTEM MONITORING

  • The Monitoring Tool allows the system user to visually identify the status of all Controllers, Master Controllers, Schedulers, Databases and Readers comprising the FireFly network.


WEB BASED SOLUTION

The FireFly System Solution encapsulates the latest technology in web based software. The primary goals of the FireFly Web based Solution are to improve system user functionality, reduce costs and to streamline systems and processes.


Benefits of the FireFly Web based System Solution:

  • Cross Platform Compatibility – The FireFly Web based Solution is far more compatible across various platforms. The minimum user requirement would be a browser.
  • Manageability - The FireFly System Solution need only be installed on the Firefly master Controller placing minimal requirements on the end user workstation. This makes maintaining and updating the system much simpler. Any updates can be deployed via the web server with ease.
  • Highly deployable – due to cross platform support and manageability deploying the application to the end user is much easier. This has added advantages where bandwidth is limited and the system and data is remote to the user. This allows the client to widen system access, streamline processes and allow more end user system access.
  • Secure Live Data – The FireFly System Solution consolidates processes reducing the need to move data. Firefly also provides an added layer of security by removing the need for the user to have access to the data and back end servers.
  • Reduced Costs – the FireFly Web Based Solution dramatically reduces client costs in terms of support, maintenance, lower requirements on the end user system and simplified architecture.
  • Eliminates Environmental conflicts – The FireFly System Solution is not dependent on any user hardware, OS settings or server restrictions.
  • Data Integrity – Pre-scheduled Backup ensures that the Firefly system solution can be restored.
  • User Access – The FireFly Web based Solution eliminates restrictions on the number of simultaneous system log-ins. Only one user may update a specific data field once access has been granted.


The modern advanced Web based design of the FireFly system opens up to the future and resolves current and future requirements. It is the only system of its kind that provides full web functionality down to the reader, door and turnstile level.

  • It is the industry recommended technology for all new systems.
  • Data is not manipulated and updated at a workstation in a browser environment. The workstation operates as a terminal. The integrity of data is maintained and is not dependent on workstation malfunctions, the loss of power during an update or an operator aborting.
  • Software versions are not distributed to, domiciled and maintained at workstations.
  • Browser access enhances support and assistance.
  • Information is available in the palm of the user’s hand. A simple query resolves:
  • What is the number of no shows for today?
  • Where can I find a replacement to meet production targets?
  • How many overtime hours was worked month to date?
  • What is the leave schedule for my team?
  • When are medical checks due?
  • Is the licence of the operator valid?
