The obvious reason that business owners often seek access control systems is to keep the “bad guys” out, and protect against intrusion, burglary, and theft. But when fully utilized, access control systems can provide a much larger number of benefits to business owners, employees, and management.
Even some of the smallest standalone access control solutions come with a web based management system. These platforms allow managers to see when doors were opened with what codes (or key fobs) and for how long. This information gives insight to when employees come and go from the office, or specific areas in an office. This can help with hourly reporting, and loss prevention.
Happier Employees= More Productive Employees
When coming into the office is as easy as swiping a key card instead of fumbling with a ring full of different keys, struggling to enter the building, it often puts people in a better mood, right off the bat. A smooth start to the day often leads to a better, more productive day in general.
Peace of Mind for Owners and Operators
While owners are away from the office, access systems with remote capabilities can bring peace of mind, knowing they can see who is coming and going, and even change access capabilities for certain people.
