KeyMate’s primary purpose is to help manage locks and keys. But since its creation in 1995, KeyMate (then known as SmartKey) has developped into a powerul security management tool used by organizations around the globe.
KeyMate and Multiple Outlets
In organizations with multiple outlets, branch offices or retail chain stores, KeyMate is an invaluable tool which helps you manage who has access to which location. When staff turnover is high, managing alarm codes and key copies becomes cumbersome. KeyMate eliminates the workload and allows head office to efficiently control what is happening in its outlets… in real-time.
KeyMate and Retail Chain Stores
Managing hundreds or even thousands of stores is not a simple task. Having to worry about locks and keys and even alarm codes for these stores is overwhelming. With many retail stores having a high turnover of employees, alarm codes change weekly and locks & keys almost as often. A simple mobile web interface allows store managers to update alarm codes via their mobile phones and transmit them to KeyMate thus allowing management at head office to be aware of every change. KeyMate pride’s itself on making it easy to be able to efficiently manage who has or had access to a location.
KeyMate for a Conglomerate
KeyMate’s Web enabled version allows large organizations with branch offices accross a country or globe to access the information easily. It allows head office to control and monitor the management of its valuable assets across the globe.
Locks and Keys Management
KeyMate allows an organization to manage who has a copy of which key to which door at which location in which building. By allowing you to identify buildings, locations, locks, and keys, KeyMate allows you to assign keys to locks and users which in turn allows you to control who has access to which location. Should a lock need to be changed, KeyMate will produce a list of all individuals who have a copy of a key to the lock in question. When assigning keys to individuals, KeyMate will allow you to print a key assignment contract or receipt which the user will sign when receiving a key. Knowing who has access to what location, or how many people can open this door, or how many doors this key can open is made easy with KeyMate.
