Access Control systems – why it’s time to change your view

Nick Whiteley of hfx discusses how modern access control systems offer more than just security. New cloud based technology systems integrated with HR applications can help companies better manage staff time, wellbeing and compliance.

Today’s access control systems do more than just control access to a company’s premises. They can also provide a wealth of information about a building or area occupancy data which highlights the parts of a building that are being used and when. This information is useful not only to manage heating and lighting use, but also help to secure areas and staff. Lone worker safety, hazardous areas or offices where sensitive information is kept can all be managed easily.

Flexible working has also become increasingly popular as organisations face the challenge of remaining agile in a competitive market. A flexible workforce is a great goal, but how can this managed in practice? Providing staff with the ability to work flexibly can pose a security nightmare, tracking who is in the building and where they are, can be key to compliance. Smart access solutions are the answer.

Security first and foremost
Of course, security is one of the main reasons why an organisation implements an access system. Dartmoor National Park is one example where staff are using hfx’s proximity card to enter the office locations, which has improved security of buildings for staff and property. Staff have found the new system easy to use and appreciate that the buildings are secure for deliveries and visitors...
