RedCrater has expertise in an extensive set of programming languages (C++, C#.Net, ASP.Net, and Java), databases (SQL Server and MySQL) and operating systems (Windows and Linux). We adopt agile development practices so that we can be flexible to meet changing customer requirements and to produce software efficiently. We specialise both in tailoring our partners’ products to meet client needs as well as building complete custom designed solutions.

Smart Card Development Services

Through RedCrater’s expertise in Smart Card technology we can build custom solutions to meet specific business needs. This can be as simple as converting legacy systems which use barcode or magstripe technology across to Smart Cards, and can be as extensive as developing highly specialised applications to meet complex business requirements.

In combination with our deployment expertise and understanding of existing applications, RedCrater uses its development capabilities to streamline application usage and card management. For example, RedCrater has experience in building solutions which load multiple Smart Card applications through the one transaction, often covertly without a person even knowing new applications are loaded onto the card. This ensures organisations obtain optimal return on their investment in Smart Card applications and technology.

RedCrater has expertise in the two most common Smart Card technologies; iClass and Mifare. Both of these technologies provide excellent support for different applications, and there is a variety of third party products and applications which use these technologies. RedCrater is a one-stop shop for solutions based on these technology platforms. Our partnerships with iClass and Mifare vendors enable us to supply, deploy and support value adding Smart Card solutions.

Security Software Customisation

Linking corporate software applications to access control can provide significant cost savings and improve an organisation’s personnel management practices. For example, linking an HR system with the access control platform avoids the need for duplicate data entry and allows physical access rights to be based on personnel information. RedCrater has expertise both in leading access control platforms and corporate directories. We can develop integration modules either as extensions to identity management platforms or as a complete custom design solution.

While access control systems are feature rich, business requirements are often beyond that which are natively supported by these platforms. For example, a site may require specialised access control logic, support for related technology (biometric readers, DVR systems, building management) or a tailored user interface. Using our knowledge of both access control platforms and related technology we can provide a customised access control system to meet business and functional requirements.
