We have been working with DPG Media – then De Persgroep – since 2011. In principle, access control for the printing plants in Amsterdam and Rotterdam was arranged by Nsecure. The services have been expanded over the years and it has grown into a close partnership. For example, Nsecure currently provides access control and video surveillance for all DPG locations. After the successful migration of the offices in the Netherlands, the knowledge and expertise of Nsecure was once again called upon with the construction of a brand new head office in Antwerp. DPG Media also wanted one access control system for all locations in Belgium. “Thanks to the close partnership, Nsecure has been able to completely relieve us of our worries by offering a uniform security policy. This uniformity has ensured that staff experience fewer inconveniences and there is no longer any fragmentation of access policy, which offers facility managers a better overview of the processes," says Kris de Bisschop, Facility Manager DPG Media location Antwerp.

Access control and video management built from the very first brick: DPG Media location Antwerp

The beautiful new office of DPG Media is located on Mediaplein in Antwerp. While the first building blocks of the building were being laid, Nsecure looked at the safety plan for the new location. In the same period, in addition to the usual challenges that are typical of an extensive new construction project, there were also the necessary challenges due to the measures regarding corona. The latter required a lot of flexibility and creativity from Nsecure and all its suppliers. Nino Bellaard, Business Developer Finance & Health at Nsecure: “Fortunately, thanks to our advanced solutions, we are able to provide many of our services remotely, such as testing security solutions and resolving malfunctions. This allowed us to maintain and guarantee the quality of our services, despite the lockdown and strict guidelines regarding entering Belgium."

Uniform access system for DPG Media location Vilvoorde

The location in Vilvoorde – the entertainment building of DPG Media – was renovated in the same period. At this location, different access systems were used, which created a confusing situation for both employees and management. The renovation was used to switch to the same access systems at this location as at other locations, which has resulted in a BeNe-transcending access and security policy for DPG Media.

What have our services achieved?

Despite the tight construction schedule, the challenges surrounding the corona measures and high time pressure, Nsecure has managed to deliver a tailor-made access control system to DPG Media, with which all employees can move safely between the different DPG Media locations with a uniform access pass. .

“The collaboration with Nsecure was professional. There was very transparent communication about the timing and implementation, which made the transition very smooth for us,” says Stijn van den Acker, Facility Manager DPG Media location Vilvoorde.
