When Rory of Communitec came across the impeccable line of Invixium biometric access control devices, he knew that he had struck gold. With over 10 years of experience in IT and creative technologies, Communitec is dedicated to providing bespoke technology solutions to homes, corporates, and professional clients. Based in London, Rory had heard of Invixium through our UK and European distributor RGB Communications. We were over the moon when we signed a partnership with RGB earlier this year thanks to the reputable and trustworthy name they’ve built within the custom install market. It was no wonder why Rory looked to them first when he went searching for the latest in biometric access control.
Rory was later approached by BXR Gym management when they wanted to install a high-quality security system for their gym. Right away Rory knew that Invixium would be the perfect solution for the job.
BXR Gym is the world’s first boutique boxing-themed gym with a focus on creating exercise programs that incorporate boxing and high intensity workouts. Having upwards of 400 clients coming through the door every day, BXR Gym is on a mission to become THE gym for top-flight boxers. With the backing of heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua and elite members like Victoria’s Secret models Sara Sampaio and Maryna Linchuk, BXR could only accept the most prestigious brands in their respective class to complement the decor.
Finding the Right Solution
Given that BXR wanted to be at the cutting-edge of the industry, they wanted to rid themselves of antiquated access solutions like keys, fobs, and scanners. Instead they looked to Communitec to provide them with a modern biometric access solution that would not only match their rugged and intense branding, but would also effortlessly automate patron access control.
Rory had earlier seen a biometric access device when his local gym implemented a biometric access control system for gym-goers. It was almost serendipitous when RGB presented him with the Invixium line of products a few days afterwards. That’s when Rory knew that he just had to jump on this new technology.
Getting Over the Hurdles
Although Invixium strives to make installments as easy and painless as possible, we’ll be honest and say that there were a few road bumps installing our device at BXR fitness center. Despite the hurdles, we were determined to make sure that the Invixium Customer Support Team pulled out all the stops to stabilize the install and get it up and running. Special thanks to Communitec and the BXR team for giving us a chance to show them what we’re capable of.
“Our decision to go with Invixium was largely because they were RGB certified. We knew that RGB doesn’t take the decision of the brands that they carry lightly and they always ensure that we have the right support to be successful. Thankfully that’s exactly what we got from Invixium. I wanted to persevere and make sure I didn’t jump ship too quickly because I like what Invixium is doing. They’re making devices user-friendly enough that someone who hasn’t really worked with biometrics before can make it work.” – Rory, Founder & CEO of Communitec
Cutting-Edge Technology for Top-Flight Athletes
Now that the system is up and running, BXR patrons enjoy easy in-and-out access of the facility without having to check-in at the front desk. Thanks to IXM WEB’s intuitive design, BXR employees can now enroll patrons themselves, saving time on requesting a manager to verify memberships every time a new client signs up.
