The new WinGuard Android App

The new WinGuard Android App (version 2.0) is now available in the Play Store. The most important new features are the secure encryption of all connections via TLS (as of ASIPServer 8.4.8.2) as well as the logging of fault reports to improve analysis and faster troubleshooting. The WinGuard App, which is of course also available for iOS, is particularly helpful in the current situation as it facilitates working from home or from remote workstations.

Review 2020

The year 2020 has not been an easy one, but fortunately Advancis as an IT company were able to adapt to the changed conditions very quickly.

Now, at the end of the year, we can look back on numerous successes and would like to thank all our partners and customers for our trustful collaboration.

Award for Advancis trainee

We congratulate Jan Zwirner on passing his final exams and being awarded the federal state of Hesse’s best trainee in the profession of IT Specialist for system integration.

Mrs. Kirsten Schoder-Steinmüller (President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Offenbach am Main) and Mr. Markus Weinbrenner (General Manager of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Offenbach am Main) visited Advancis in Langen and presented the certificate to the happy graduate. Jan is one of three trainees who achieved the best results in their respective professions throughout Hesse.

The people responsible for the trainees at Advancis are proud with the performance of Jan Zwirner, who is now permanently employed at the company: “Jan fits perfectly into the Advancis family and we look forward to accompanying him on his further career path, continuing to challenge and support him. For us, the training of young people is an important element in recruiting skilled workers,” says Andre Meiswinkel (COO of Advancis). In the past, three Advancis trainees have already been honored as the best graduates in their professions. A total of 20 young people have successfully completed their training in the company, which was founded in 1994. Advancis currently employs eight trainees.

Especially in times of a shortage of skilled workers, training is an ideal tool for attracting qualified employees in the long term. Within the scope of the training, we not only impart technical knowledge, but in particular also our corporate values. We are looking forward to new applications for the 2021 training year – for more information on the training professions and further job offers, please visit our career section.

 

New demo panel for the Advancis showroom

Our Premium Technology Partner Commend/Schneider Intercom provided us with touch screen intercom stations of the Concerto series as well as with intercom stations for the industrial and elevator emergency call sector for our showroom. Together with our Regional Sales Manager Rainer Holsteg, Dirk Gottwald (Key Account Manager) from Schneider Intercom and Reinhard Tranninger (Segment Manager Industry) from Commend had a look at the completed demo panels in our showroom beginning of November. Here, our partners and customers can now experience live how a highly available intercom system with powerful call stations can be integrated directly into the WinGuard PSIM platform. Intelligent functions for data, video and audio are enabled via a bidirectional IP interface. We would like to thank Commend/Schneider Intercom for the joint realisation of the demo panel and look forward to our further collaboration.

Virtual Show: Wiley Industry Days

Be part of the Wiley Industry Days from 16-19 November 2020: a virtual trade show and congress providing a meeting place for the automation, machine vision and security industry.

Visit us at our online stand and learn how the vendor-neutral PSIM platform WinGuard simplifies event processing in the control centre.

The Advancis team will show you how this works in practice with WinGuard in the “Safety & Security” hall. Register here free of charge for the virtual show. We look forward to many interesting discussions.
