Automated key control systems provide several benefits that don't come with manual key control processes, including overdue key alerts. These notifications let system administrators know when employees don't return keys on time. Here are three ways these alerts can help your business.
You Know Where to Start Looking for Missing Keys
Overdue key alerts notify you when a key has not been returned to the key system on time, so you'll know exactly which key is missing and which employee last checked it out (rather than hunting down the key with no clues).
You Can Hold Employees Accountable
An electronic key control system keeps a record of every time an employee checks out a key, enforcing accountability from the get-go. As an added level of accountability, the overdue key alert will let you know the moment a key has been out for too long. This reduces the likelihood that the user will have time to use the key maliciously.
