Why do I need a key management system?


Most businesses have a complex but essential system of keys. These keys provide employees with access to a variety of restricted areas and important company assets. These include vehicles, products and heavy machinery. Incorrect key storage and management could result in key misplacement, inconvenience, unauthorised entry and untraceable theft or damage.

An intelligent key management solution allows your business to safely track and store all company keys. Your business is able to spare the costs and administration of replacing frequently misplaced keys, hiring locksmiths or replacing stolen or damaged goods. More importantly, you can ensure that only authorised personnel have access to sensitive areas or hazardous machinery. This results in fewer opportunities for damage or injury.
