Product Manager of Access Control, DMP
Someone approached me the other day and asked if DMP was going to continue supporting Entré Central Station. I want to take a few minutes to talk about that.
Several years ago when DMP brought out the Entré Access and Security Management Software, we had a version of it called “Central Station” and although we don’t continue to sell that version of the software, many dealers still use it very successfully. So occasionally that question arises. The answer is absolutely YES!
Whether you’re a Lite, Business, Enterprise, Central Station or NOC customer or user, we will continue to support the Entré suite of software. It remains a very important piece of our software offering.
DMP will continue to provide features, improvements and enhancements to the entire Entré suite of software. Every new release includes new features for each Entré product that are applied to all of those products, unless specifically stated. Below you can take a look at some of the recent software updates for Entré and what features they included:
