Benefits of Access Control Systems for Businesses

Access control systems have been a staple in offices and buildings for years. When you consider their benefits, it’s a no-brainer!

Still, some are hesitant to add them- citing time, costs, or even the disruption of routine. While we understand, we here at ProLink Communications are here to tell you that the benefits vastly outweigh any drawbacks. Below we’ll walk you through those benefits!

Ease of Access

One of the common resistances people have with access control systems is that they already gave all of their employee’s keys. To that, we ask, have any of the following situations happened to you?

  • Your opener calls out.
  • Your employees lost their keys.
  • An employee who has a key to unlock doesn’t show up.
  • An employee has to or wants to come in early or stay late.
  • Keys get locked inside, and a locksmith needs to be called.

You’ve likely answered yes to at least one of those. In all of those situations, the key is an issue-someone with a key loses it, doesn’t show up to unlock the doors for the others, or someone (likely you), has to stay late to lock up after an employee; or risk leaving your key with them. You can irradicate these issues by replacing the traditional lock and key with access control systems! In most cases, a lost fob, card, or forgotten pin can quickly be reset or remade right in your office.

Restricted Areas

If your business has multiple buildings or restricted areas, it can be difficult to keep track of who has what key. Installing an access control system allows you to put parameters on the system and the cards, fobs, or pins used, ensuring that only the authorized employees for an area have access.

As a bonus, access control systems are a great way to track who is coming in and out of an area.

Protect Employees and Business

The overall benefit is that access control systems protect your employees and your business. As we’ve mentioned, with access control systems, you can log who comes in and out of your building as a whole, and specific rooms. Access control systems also ensure that nobody can duplicate a key for nefarious reasons. Simply deactivate a former employee’s pin, fob, or card.
