When an employee leaves your organization and fails to return his keys, you may have to get all the locks replaced. Compare that to having an electronic access control system where a simple click of the mouse will deny that person access to the building. You will also avoid the common problem of lost or stolen keys. Now, that will save you money!
Not everyone in your organization should have access to every area. With an access control system, you can program different levels of restricted access. Simply give your employees access to different areas according to their status and security clearance.
You will also have the ability to manage certain situations better. For example, an event could unfold that calls for a security lockdown or a security lockout. You can prepare for these situations by programming a scenario where only people with the highest level of security clearance can enter or exit the building.
Your access control system allows you to easily run a report on individual card holders, access areas or a number of other variables. Some companies use these reports for their time-and–attendance.
