OLS wins contract with freight transporter

August 21, 2023


OLS, a specialist cloud-based access control company located within Doncaster has secured a new contract with a freight supplier.

The freight transporter, which has around 8,000 employees, has tasked OLS with the upgrade of its access control systems across 11 sites in the UK.

Using ACT365 to complete the upgrade, OLS will future proof the freight transporter’s access control by migrating its infrastructure from the 11 different onsite locations to one single centralised system in the cloud.

This new cloud-based access control system will enable the management of access control from anywhere at any time, via an Internet connected account.

OLS solution has multiple benefits

Taking approximately four months to deploy across the whole business, this cloud-based access control will replace the freight transporter’s current onsite infrastructure that has been in place for over eight years, by aligning it to one single access control solution. 

Cloud-based access control provides the freight transporter with benefits that include streamlined, fully scalable systems where data is always available, access control is more secure, and changes can be made easily as and when the business needs.

The freight transporter’s 3-year, over £350,000 contract with OLS includes ongoing support and maintenance. Future ongoing costs will be saved with this system, as there is no longer a need for onsite servers and network heavy hardware at each of the 11 locations, and no need for their ongoing maintenance.

Ollie Law, Managing Director of OLS Ltd said, “We’re so pleased to have won this contract thanks to our vast experience in migrating access control to the cloud and our wealth of knowledge in seamlessly integrating these systems with existing software.

“The freight transporter had their existing system in place since 2014 so was eager to make the right decision in future-proofing their business. They felt OLS was the right decision as we displayed extensive cloud experience, references and an offering that provided a flexible, strategic approach to a full cloud migration. We’re delighted they have chosen OLS as their cloud-based security provider and look forward to a successful partnership moving forwards.”
