New Hires

Do you have many employees joining your company? Can you quickly scale your existing access control solution to incorporate these new people, or is it a slow process to create new keys or cards so they can easily come and go? If the second statement rings true, this not only slows down your day-to-day operations, but it will also affect your employee morale when they don't feel as though they’re fully onboarded until many months later. Access control, however, can empower new employees with the ability to enter your office space on their first week.

Tech Breakdown

Are you experiencing issues with employees getting locked out due to faulty fobs or cards? Not only do you lose valuable billing time while they find a way to get in, but your IT department gets brought into it instead of using their time on business-specific tasks.

Revoking Access

There are a lot of reasons you may want to revoke access down the line. In some cases, employees lose keys and open you up to added vulnerabilities. Other times, you just want an easy way to remove former employees.

With individual fobs and keycards, it’s easy to keep track of who can come and go at any time. Secure your space with a solution that lets you sign in and remove any member of your organization within a matter of minutes.

Tiered Access

Your business may require employees to only access certain areas or come in at certain times. Secure your property by ensuring only necessary people get in instead of relying on one-size-fits-all solutions.

How can you handle employees with different role-based access? Employing different cards or fobs for each room or area becomes onerous. Having personalized accounts can help.
