If you haven’t updated the access control infrastructure of your business in some time, it is important to consider installing a new access control system that can keep up with your customer, visitor, and employee flow. This is the best way to ensure that your business is utilizing modern technology to the best of its abilities to create a strong layered security infrastructure. Here is a guide from UTS Group on the top 5 reasons to update your access control.
Your Brand is Growing Fast
If you find yourself expanding your team – Congratulations! – but your access control system may not be suiting your needs as well as it should. It is likely that for each new employee you hire you will need to contact external services to obtain their new keys and credentials. This means that it is a perfect time to make a switch to an advanced, electronic access control system.
Your company has experienced a break-in
If your business experiences the unfortunate event of a break-in or burglary, you may be scrambling to figure out how it may have happened. You don’t know if you have had a past employee who held onto their key, or if a stranger used an existing employee's credentials to enter your property. It can be very difficult to find the source of the burglary, as that can be a time-consuming process. Time that could be used to actively protect your property. Instead, make sure to update your access control system as soon as possible to at least give yourself the peace of mind that your business is protected.
You have a million keys
If your business key-ring looks like something out of a fantasy novel, it is time to update your access control system to a more convenient option.
Your company has an out of date access control system
If your company has had the same key card or fob system in place for over a decade, you should consider updating it. Key cards aren’t the most secure system, especially older models, which can be hacked. We recommend upgrading your access control system if this is the only measure of access control that your business has in place.
If you want your business to seem technologically forward-thinking
If you want to generate a sense of technological innovation around your company, it is essential to be up to date with the latest technology. From an access control standpoint, this process can be summed up in two words: keyless entry.
