5 Benefits of Access Control for Your Business

Date: 20 November 2019

Once upon a time, a big bunch of keys was a sign of authority in the workplace! The more metal a person carried, the more doors they were allowed to unlock.

But busy, important people don't waste time searching for the right key any more...
Here are 5 brilliant benefits of access control for your business:

Access Control For Business

1 - Convenience

A big set of keys are a pain to remember and a nuisance to carry around. Door entry systems in modern access control systems use:

  • Key fobs
  • Number pads
  • Wristbands
  • Plastic cards that can double as photo ID
  • Even biometric data like iris recognition!

They're all convenient to use and personally linked to each member of staff.

This means they're less likely to be lost or shared. In the event of a lost fob, you simply update the system to void it, no more changing locks!

2 - Flexibility

Each business and building has its own unique needs. Modern access control systems are easily programmed to reflect these.

A common example is where all staff can enter the building but only the admin team can get into the reception offices. Great for GDPR protection!

In a school setting, you might want to restrict access to the science block or disabled lifts. Maybe you don't want your teachers working before 8am but you do need to let the cleaning team in. All of this is available at the click of a button!

3 - Accountability

Systems can be integrated with your time and attendance records. Work hours are automatically logged for each member of staff to make payroll a breeze. Care and Nursing Home Managers will love how quickly they can check for minimum staff levels or skill mix. Less time checking means more time to fix!

Linked to a suitable fire alarm system you can produce an instant list of people on site in an emergency. No more poring over squiggled names and hoping everyone used the signing-in book!

4 - Lines of defence

Access control can start from the car park and continue into every area of your business. Automatic gates or bollards stop unauthorised car parking.

Visitors can be greeted and checked before being allowed in. So you're keeping your business secure and your people safe from intruders.

Multiple lines of defence show how seriously you take safeguarding. Staff and authorised visitors will be happier knowing they're protected.

5 - Peace of mind for the Responsible Person

Discretionary Access Control lets the right people in and keeps the wrong people out. Modern access control does even more! It adds to your business, keeping things running smoothly day to day.

And, if the worst happens, it helps you safeguard your people and property. The Responsible Person for health and safety in your company will sleep much easier at night!
