Abloy UK has launched a new video asking the question, “when is a key more than just a key?”

The video centres on how much time, money and energy is wasted by companies who have contractors travelling between sites only to find they don’t have the correct key to access assets. It also looks at the implications that lost keys can have, including the negative impact on operational efficiency and possible disruption to critical services.

Outlining one solution, Abloy explains how with this system service jobs can easily be assigned, and audit trails can be tracked while contractors are on the move. What’s more, service job costs can be verified meaning spend can be effectively controlled. Access to multiple sites and equipment can be validated and controlled, with anomalies reported in real time for enhanced security. Access rights can even be updated securely via a smartphone, utilising highly encrypted Bluetooth technology.

All this means aborted journeys can be substantially reduced, improving operational efficiency and reducing costs, while offering a return on investment and contributing to corporate sustainability targets.
