Steve Pearce, Operations Manager at Motor Range Liverpool, said:

 “The Keytracker System has proved invaluable to us, since we have had the system in place we are able to track the whereabouts of every key on site and only authorised users can access the cabinet and retrieve the key that is securely locked in place, this control has meant that since having the system not a single key has been misplaced or lost.”

“We have also seen some fantastic operational benefits to having the system too, our team take more accountability to ensure the keys are returned, the system has had a favourable impact on insurance premiums and countless man-hours have been saved looking for lost or misplaced keys”

Keys Are Always Telling a Story About When They Were Used, by Whom & For How Long

This is an example of some of the advantages gained by Motor dealers using Keytracker to save time and increase security:

Ensure keys are always secure, exactly where they should be, or in the safe hands of a known authorised employee. The anti-tamper seals ensure no individual key theft, even when off-site. Ensure the keys are always available to all, not tucked away or unavailable. Instant reports show which cars were most viewed or demonstrated. How long successful sales staff took on demonstrations. Which cars were used by which staff & when. Pre-booking ensures availability to others until required. It can be linked to the website showing cars for sale the second they are plugged into the sales cabinet and “sold” as soon as they are plugged into the valeting cabinet. Vehicle reports show how many times a vehicle was accessed, when and by whom.

Site position reports show the site layout and frequency of demonstrations. Numbered vehicle mirror hangers, matching numbered key positions, numbered Keytracker pegs and a tamperproof seal make obtaining keys fast, secure and efficient. User reports show which any individual accessed vehicles, when & for how long. The parking bay report shows where that vehicle is parked. Car blocking reports show which other vehicles also need moving. Workshop reports show how long different technicians took to work on vehicles.

Pre-delivery inspection centre reports show days on-site. Aged & site analysis can assist with marketing decisions. Secure cabinets with fast access to authorised staff can be self-closing, self-locking with additional security and alarms.
