The keys to your business give people access to more than your building - it provides them access to your equipment, supplies, inventory, electronics and customer information.
In the wrong hands your keys can be a serious security issue, providing criminals with dangerous access to your assets, put your business and employees in danger, and cost you financially.
Despite the risks, it’s common that keys are misplaced, left unattended, are removed by terminated employees and are stolen.
While some business owners take precautions by marking keys with ‘do not copy’ to prevent legitimate locksmiths from making copies without their knowledge or changing the locks when keys go missing, this can be costly and criminals can still manage to get illegal copies or pick locks.
What’s the solution?
While electronic locks with number pads and passcodes can ease the stresses associated with misplaced and stolen keys, you still have to worry about codes ending up in the wrong hands.
That’s not to mention dealing with the frustrations of changing the passwords, updating employees and assisting team members who just can’t seem to remember the code no matter how many times you give it to them.
Luckily, there is a better solution that will give employees easy access to your business - while also preventing unauthorized individuals from entering the property and making it easy for you to deactivate access if the need arises.
This solution is managed access control, or keyless entry, and is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways for you to increase security and ensure criminals do not gain access to your business.
Through the use of electronic locks, access cards/badges/fobs and top of the line readers, you will be able to ensure only authorized individuals have access to your place of business, as well as the ability to track who goes where and when.
