Pip Courcoux, Sales and Product Manager at CLIQ Systems, and Steve Wintle, Head of CNI at Abloy UK, will be hosting an interactive webinar at 10am on Thursday, the 24th of May, answering the question ‘When is a key more than just a key?’ The webinar will approach topics such as security integration and will discuss how organisation can maintain strict standards required for security, while enhancing operational efficiencies.
“Technology has come a long way since the invention of the key, and systems such as CLIQ now offer a wide scope of benefits to organisations, including increased operational efficiencies and cost savings, in addition to high security,” explained Pip Courcoux.
“Keys are no longer ‘just keys’ in the traditional sense, they have become technologically connected devices. This opens up a realm of opportunities, including integration with existing Enterprise Resource Planning, H & S, Competence, Permit to Work, Telemetry and SCADA systems. In the critical infrastructure space, the hybrid between mechanical and electronic technologies is ‘key’ to its success, improving planning and control processes,” he added.
Pip further explained the benefits of using this technology, mentioning the secure access to an online management application from anywhere in the world that allows its users to change key access permissions, profiles, validity and schedules.
“Keys can be validated daily, weekly or monthly keeping them continuously secure, and audit trails are generated. What’s more, physical security can be integrated with existing telemetry systems to help control and manage operations,” Pip continued.
