The ORANO (AREVA) Case
Paris headquartered AREVA is a multinational nuclear materials development and waste management company whose activities encompass mining, conversion-enrichment, used fuel recycling, nuclear logistics, dismantling and engineering. The group has over 16,000 employees across its 13 office globally. Its mining and conversion-enrichment activities place it in the top three worldwide.
AREVA’s facilities management and security team sought a highly secured, scalable and comprehensive solution for Visitor and Physical Security Management.
AREVA needed a highly secured and customised Visitor Management Software to manage visitors, suppliers and contractors across its 17 sites in France. To meet nuclear industry’s higher security standards AREVA wanted to install the software on their private server and manage it centrally.
Further, AREVA’s security team was also looking to upgrade their Physical Security software and was in search for a solution which met their sector-specific requirements.
After an extensive and careful evaluation of the global visitor management software market, AREVA decided to implement Hamilton Visitor at their sites across France because of its smart, secure features and for meeting their industry-specific requirements. The security team chose Hamilton Security – Physical Security Software as their new upgraded software after being impressed by its enhanced incident reporting features.
Being in a niche industry AREVA was looking for highly secured, customisable and scalable solutions – Visitor Management and Physical Security Software. Their search ended with Hamilton Visitor and Hamilton Security. The product team at Hamilton Apps assisted AREVA staff with the installation of Hamilton Visitor on their personal server with ease. Hamilton Visitor’s unmatched features and the personalisation made the adoption quicker across their sites.
AREVA wanted to create a central control system at their headquarters in Paris to manage visitor and security departments. With Hamilton Visitor’s customised solution AREVA was able to give specified access to each individual category of visitors – employees, contractors, guests and auditors.
The solutions were further customised to meet the unique requirement of AREVA keeping in mind their customised workflow and security concerns of operating nuclear plants.
Moreover, Hamilton Security software was installed on their private server to be used for reporting of on-site security incidents by the security and facility management teams. Extensive training and support were provided to make AREVA’s staff familiar with software’s range of smart and easy-to-use features.
Areva’s 4,000 employees and 1,000 subcontractors at their 17 sites in France use Hamilton Visitor and Hamilton Security software every day to work more efficiently. The solutions have not only helped the staff strengthen their site security but also helped to save on resources.
