New Member Highlight,
NACCU New Member Highlight:

In this latest installment of our New Member Highlight, we catch up with David Brown from new NACCU member ACDI.

Talk about the history of your company.

Founded in 1994, Access Control Devices, Inc. (ACDI) got its start as a leading manufacturer of coin-op machines. After introducing EX technology to print management and cultivating its first OEM partnership, ACDI added PaperCut to the portfolio in 2011. Our company has since grown to become the largest authorized solution center for PaperCut in the world, providing a complete package of services, including sales and technical support, training, compatible hardware, and remote and onsite installations. Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2024, ACDI continues to strive for excellence with the vision of being the world leader in delivering business solutions and services. 

What does your company do?

Since 1994, office equipment suppliers have trusted ACDI to provide industry-leading capture, print management, electric vehicle (EV) charging, and cost-recovery solutions to streamline office technology and the document lifecycle. From hardware payment solutions, proximity card readers, and EV charging stations to digital workflow automation, fleet management, and analytics software, our extensive portfolio pairs seamlessly with our industry-leading project coordination, installation, marketing, and sales experience. These solutions drive efficiency and productivity for thousands of organizations across education, healthcare, government, and beyond through global channel distribution and development partnerships with the most prominent copier and printer manufacturers. 

What products and services do you provide specifically to campus card operations?

        As part of our portfolio of leading solutions and services, PaperCut and ELATEC provide a variety of benefits to campus card operations, including security, sustainability, convenience, and time and cost savings. ELATEC offers a combination of service, software, and products that is optimally coordinated to provide a complete, unparalleled RFID package.

Backed by ACDI’s award-winning support, these products work hand-in-hand to provide top of the class in easy-to-use and cost-effective printing solutions. 

        Is there a new product of service you want to tell us about?

        Even though we are a 20 year old company, iLOQ is the new product. We launched in the USA in March of 2023, and are the most sustainable smart access solution available.

        What are you hoping to gain from your NACCU membership?

        ACDI and ELATEC have joined NACCU with the intention of creating awareness among campus card users about the benefits of pairing Papercut print management solutions with ELATEC’s industry leading authentication technology. With campus technology evolving rapidly and administrators constantly on the lookout for solutions that add value and reduce cost, ACDI and ELATEC offer a wide range of solutions for administrators to not only meet the demands of today but also plan for the needs of tomorrow.
