By now, apartment complex managers and owners should know about the safety that electronic key control systems can provide. However, many may not be aware of the additional aid they can deliver for day-to-day business operations.
We've listed a few benefits below to demonstrate how electronic key control can help your property on a daily basis.
Installing an electronic key control system will make employees more accountable for their actions. Each person must log in to the system with a password, proximity card or fingerprint in order to access a key. The name of the person accessing the key is then stored electronically along with the date and time the key was taken. If a key is lost, you will quickly discover the person responsible.
Accurate record keeping is often an overlooked benefit of electronic key control. When employees check out a key, the time and date as well as the purpose for using the key are recorded. This creates a verifiable audit trail for you to reference in case of a mishap.
One of the greatest advantages of having a key control system is the increased simplicity. When the complexity of finding the right key is removed, workers will be able to save time and move on to their next job more quickly.
