Benefits of Key Management

Not only does key management come with lots of components, but it has a number of benefits for business.

Loss Prevention

Human error is always possible with any keys or assets, but with the use of RFiD systems, keys can be tracked at all times, aiding loss prevention.

Accountability & Traceability

RFiD systems or cloud-based software gives complete accountability and traceability with real time data on your keys. If you have keys being accessed all day, why not consider this type of system to maximise security of your keys and assets in real time.

Improved Accessibility

With software available for intelligent lockers and RFiD systems, as well as access permissions built into mechanical systems, it is easier to grant access to those who need it and keep a track of who can remove your keys at all times.

Efficient Workflow

Having ease of access to keys can improve the efficiency of your business. No longer needing to rummage through keys to find the one you need, Keytracker systems make it easier to find what you need at any given time. This maximises your workflow and improves productivity across the business.
