5 WAYS ACCESS CONTROL WILL IMPROVE YOUR BUSINESS

Access control systems can be an incredibly useful tool for a business. In today’s age, technology advancements allow businesses advanced doorway access systems that greatly boost efficiency and workflow while also providing unrivaled security. Here are 5 benefits to upgrading your facility: 

YOU CAN CREATE A CLEARANCE SYSTEM

Most business owners don’t always want all their employees to have free access to every area of the building. Access control systems provide an excellent solution to this by allowing a business owner to create a master key system that works as a clearance system. This master key system will give you the master key that provides you with access to every area of the building while the employees will only have access to the parts that you want them to get in. This system can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.

YOU CAN SIMPLIFY EMPLOYEE TURNOVER

If an employee leaves the company and has a key, this can be problematic to a company with traditional lock-and-key security. Even if the employee turns in his or her key, it’s still incredibly simple to make many copies of this key beforehand, meaning that the company can potentially get robbed if the locks aren’t changed or rekeyed. This isn’t a problem with access control systems as the key cards are nearly impossible to duplicate and you can restrict the card’s access so that it won’t work anyway.

YOU WON’T HAVE TO WORRY WHEN A KEYCARD IS LOST

Tying into the previous point, you won’t have to worry about if a keycard is lost either. You can just restrict access to the keycard that was lost and issue a new one to the employee who lost it.

YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR SECURITY FROM YOUR OWN HOME

Let’s say there’s an emergency and an employee needs to get inside your building, yet he or she doesn’t have a key to get inside and you’re not around. In most cases, you’d have to drop what you’re doing and go back to your business. However, with our access control systems, you can simply unlock the doors and grant access inside the building just by using your smartphone. It takes convenience to a whole new level!

YOU’LL BE ABLE TO SEE WHO’S ENTERING YOUR BUSINESS AND WHEN

Most access control systems come with a log that allows you to see who’s been entering what areas of your building along with what time they did so. This can help you determine who was in what area in case something is stolen or you have another similar problem.
