Buying a Turnstile is like Buying a Car

Mercedes car dealership with silver and white carsBuying a turnstile is a lot like buying a car; they both are highly customizable and require a lot of thought prior to purchasing. For instance, cars have many options and trim levels to choose from that can change prices substantially. Car buyers weigh the costs and benefits of additional options, only adding the ones they consider worthwhile. These added options ultimately determine the final price of the car; the more options and customizations you choose, the higher the price. The same is true for turnstile pricing. Anything from cabinet finish to functionality can change the price of a turnstile. Just like a car buyer working with a salesman, turnstile buyers work with access control specialists to determine which turnstile products and options best fit their needs.
