Orion ECI announce that Tom Elliott has been promoted to the newly created position of Vice President, Enterprise Sales. Most recently, Tom held the position of Director of Global Business Development and previously held the title of National Sales Manager. Traditionally known as a converged entry technology company, Orion has significantly expanded its product offerings to meet evolving client needs. Specifically, the company has expanded beyond traditional entrance control products speedgates, optical turnstiles, and full height turnstiles into security tailgating with DoorGuard™ and occupancy sensor solutions under the Constellation™ brand.
Orion ECI and Tansa Global have entered into a strategic partnership to expand the global reach for both companies. This new business relationship was featured at the 2022 Intersec Show in Dubai. Full Height Turnstiles are a specialty for Tansa Global but lead times and geographical distance were challenging as the company looked to increase sales within the US Market.
Orion Entrance Control has partnered with Tansa Global to bring to market world-class Full Height turnstiles powered by Infinity™ software to provide real-time occupant counting data at entryways, perimeters, lobbies and elsewhere. Tansa Global full height turnstiles secure many of the world’s important icons and venues including the host stadiums of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Orion Entrance Control appointed Pierre Bourgeix as an embedded consultant. Bourgeix brings over 30 years of security experience through his work at The Rand Corporation, U.S. State Department, ADT/Tyco Security, HySecurity, Wallace International, SecureState, and BoonEdam. With Bourgeix’s expertise, Orion looks to expand its influence nationally and internationally. Bourgeix’s competencies center around physical and cybersecurity governance.
Orion Entrance Control announced the release of Constellation, a small, discreet unit that utilizes state-of-the-art, close-range radar-based sensors that provide accurate, anonymous occupancy and wellness data in real-time. Xandar Kardian was the first to commercially deploy digital radar signal processing in large, complex environments like international airports. Orion’s Constellation makes that technology accessible to organizations of all sizes. Besides being lightweight, Constellation uses minimal power and comes fully-assembled, making it easy to install and deploy.
