86.9% of the top 23 UK construction companies have installed biometric manufacturers, ievo Ltd’s products to add an advanced solution to their access control systems.

As we await the latest Top 100 Construction Companies report from The Construction Index, who annually analyse and list the top 100 of the UK’s leading contractors, based on company turnover and profit, we looked into the past 5 years of how the market has been shaped.

Of the top 23 companies, who have been consistently included in the top 30 companies for the past 5 years, 20 have all installed, either directly or via security providers, ievo systems.

ievo Ltd Managing Director Shaun Oakes said: “We are delighted to discover that a portion of our construction customers, whether directly or indirectly, form a large part of the top 30 of the UK’s leading contractors. It shows the strength of both ievo products and the ievo Ltd brand. We are looking forward to build upon this installation base as we expose ourselves to new markets and attract new and exciting partners.”

The ievo range offers biometric security via fingerprint recognition readers, allowing the user to gain access to secure sites and, or record reliable and accurate time and attendance data, to help manage large workforces and keep tight security measures.

Using advanced multispectral imaging to help combat levels of dust, moisture and surface debris found on the finger, ievo Ltd’s flagship biometric reader, the ievo ultimate™, provides a robust solution that can accommodate some of the harsh environments found within the construction industry. With IP65 and vandal resistance, it is the ‘go to’ product for those looking for an ideal access control system, or improving a current infrastructure, with biometric devices that are proven to save money and safeguard health and safety requirements.

Rod Jones Sales & Marketing Manager at DataScope Systems Limited stated: “As the leading provider of access control and fatigue management systems to the construction, rail and civil engineering sectors ievo are the obvious choice for DataScope due to the multiple integration options into access control platforms. To know that you have a product of this nature, which is both reliable and trusted by so many companies speaks volumes for the quality of ievo.”

ievo Ltd was introduced to the security market back in 2010, and has since been changing the way that businesses and wider markets look at biometric security. Offering reliable products that are simple to use, from both an installation and end user view, ievo have been working with a number of key partners to be able to provide the most efficient and integratable system available on the market.

“Acetech Security use the ievo ultimate product exclusively on all our customers’ construction sites, it integrates seamlessly with our Paxton and BreeCS construction site software, allowing our clients to have an in-depth reporting on health and safety, fire roll call, carbon footprint data and much more. We have installed multiple ievo ultimate on the Battersea Power Station and One Tower Bridge projects to name a few.” said Alex Clark Managing Director at Acetech Security Ltd, who actively work with ievo.

Working with this many of the top 50 construction companies only paths the way for ievo Ltd to grow, already highlighted as one of the top 16 companies to watch in 2016 by the NEL Fund, ievo have worked hard to establish themselves within the security market as a leading design and manufacturer of biometric solutions.
