Common Sail’s StoryPoint Senior Living Communities are Anything but Common
General Contractor: Common Sail Investment Group
StoryPoint Senior Living is part of Common Sail Investment Group (CSIG), which successfully operates Independence Village and StoryPoint senior living communities. These communities provide continuing care where residents can move from independent living to enhanced living, to assisted living and, in some locations, to memory care if needed. These choices allow individuals who are leaving a single-family dwelling to consider the living option that best suits them and follow the care path for the remainder of their life.
Originally, these new builds were slated to use Allegion’s free Engage software for access control, however CSIG ultimately wanted a more robust platform that Engage could not provide. While Engage in small systems is quite appropriate, a more enterprise approach is more successful for multi-property owners.
CSIG contacted Allegion and they recommended AccessNsite to take over the access control for these communities. At that time, CSIG already had four properties with 500 plus devices that were being managed using Allegion Schlage products.
AccessNsite Vice President – Enterprise Systems Brian Ashley says, “We offered to migrate those devices to AccessNsite with one centralized server and their data center for enterprise level access. AccessNsite’s virtualized server means that CSIG has direct access to that server, which connects to the entire database. At any time, an official at CSIG can manipulate the AccessNsite software and the results are immediate.
