TDSi has introduced a new software migration programme from its venerable EXgarde platform to the latest version of its GARDiS browser-based platform.

The software migration programme supports the ‘End of Life’ classification for its EXgarde Software Platform from 1 May 2024 and ensures all its customers have access to the latest TDSi Access Control Software.

“Since its introduction in 2001 EXgarde has developed into the workhorse of thousands of TDSi Access Control Systems around the world,” said John Davies, Managing Director, TDSi

“However, due to advancements in modern computing technology and user requirements, we have identified that the EXgarde Software Platform is no longer equipped to continue to deliver the cutting-edge capabilities, seamless integrations and service levels that our customers expect.

“Therefore, it will be classed as ‘End of Life’ from 1st May 2024 and will cease to be available for new installations from that date.”

Providing support for three years

Tina Baker, Development Manager, said: “We would like to reassure customers that whilst new features won’t be actively developed, we are committed to providing support for our EXgarde Software platform for three years (until 1 May 2027) and all existing installations will continue to function as normal, providing reassurance and ample time to transition and migrate to our new browser-based GARDiS Access Control Software.”

The GARDiS migration process enables EXgarde Software users to change over to TDSi’s latest flagship GARDiS Software platform, often without the need to replace any existing hardware.

To ensure a smooth transition for its customers, the TDSi Team can manage the software migration timeline through a process-driven, gated workflow if required.  

“Whilst this is the perfect opportunity to embrace the performance, flexibility and scalability as well as physical security provided by our latest GARDiS software solution, we also understand that changes such as this can be challenging,” added Davies.

“The TDSi team is available to provide support at every step of the way – please do not hesitate to reach out to our team who will be very happy to help.”
