The renowned AVIS blood donation center can count on around 1.2 million blood donors at 3000 sites across Italy every year, with a total of 25,000 donors visiting the Milan donation center annually.

Challenges: Detering Troublemakers, Protecting Donors

In the past, the AVIS blood donation center in Milan has been subject to several thefts and burglaries. The intruders targeted medical equipment, computers, cash, and the personal belongings of employees. In addition to access control and protection against theft, the organization wanted to deter against vandalism. Another aim was for medical staff to be able to keep an eye on donors outside the examination area, as some donors can have a critical reaction after giving blood

AVIS Milano has been using MOBOTIX video technology since 2016. The organization opted for the technology for three reasons: The excellent image quality, the ability to manage all important areas from a single networked server, and the high level of cybersecurity when dealing with sensitive data.

Conclusion: The Best Technology for the Best Care

“The donors are prepared to give ‘a piece of their life’. The least we can do is offer them a five-star reception and care with the help of the MOBOTIX system — especially when it comes to matters of health and safety,” says Sergio Casartelli, General Manager of AVIS Milano.
