Fortecho delivers this and, to date, I have seen nothing that matches the functionality and performance.”Mike Fox, Technical Security ManagerThe National Gallery, London“Being a charity, we seek cost-effective ways of ensuring the security of the works of art we have on display. We piloted the Fortecho system in our Fine Rooms, and realising its potential, soon expanded the system to cover our loan exhibition galleries. The system is flexible and its effectiveness has allowed us to reduce staff costs in the galleries. I highly recommend it.”Dave Vobes, Head of SecurityRoyal Academy of Arts“As the most visited monument in Spain with hundreds of priceless artefacts on display, we must be able to monitor environmental conditions and the security of our objects without damaging the building. The Fortecho system is excellent because it lets us centrally manage multiple sites, while getting detailed information on what is happening to our artefacts within a few millimetres of their location.”Xavi EdoSagrada Familia“A large part of our strategy is to ensure optimum gallery conditions for both viewers and artworks, while also controlling costs. Fortecho is an enormous help in achieving this. The system is invisible, effective and integrates seamlessly with our security infrastructure.”Andrés Perez, Head of Security & OperationsThyssen-Bornemisza Museum“Fortecho is the best system on the market for preventing art theft and its tragic consequences.”Charles Hill, Art DetectiveHill Art Risk“The powerful Fortecho software combined with active RFID tags has provided another important layer in the security array of the National Gallery. Contrary to popular belief, major works of art do not hang forever in the same galleries. Because of this, a mobile, flexible and non-intrusive approach to object alarms is essential. Fortecho delivers this and, to date, I have seen nothing that matches the functionality and performance.”Mike Fox, Technical Security ManagerThe National Gallery
