The State of Physical Access Control in EMEA Businesses – 2020 Report

As well as being fragile and vulnerable to damage, electronic items are often costly to replace and can cost a business dearly if they’re not in full working order.

Many businesses rely on the use of technology on a daily basis and with this in mind, protecting such items is of the utmost importance. Simply buying cases for your work laptops may seem like an easy, cost-effective way of securing them, but this approach could cost you a fortune further down the line.

An electronic locker acts as a safe holding space for valuable items when they’re not in use, ensuring that when they are needed, they’re ready to go.

Depending on your requirements and the nature of your business, these units can be accessed via pin code, finger recognition or using an access control card – whatever works best for you.

Still not convinced? Below are just a few reasons why an electronic locker system could be a sound investment for your business.

1. Charging facilities

As well as ensuring your electronics stay in one piece, these lockers can have charging ports built-in. So, with your tablet computers safely stowed and charging overnight, you can rest assured that they’ll be ready to use for the busy day ahead.

2. Tracking technology

In the event that an item goes missing or is damaged, these facilities enable you to track who last accessed the locker and when. Knowing who is accountable for the problem allows you to get to the root of the issue quickly and efficiently. As well as ensuring disruption to the business is kept to a minimum, this should also spur your staff members to take more responsibility for the safety of these items.

3. Versatility

One of the great things about electronic lockers is that they lend themselves to almost any business. Whether you run a student library that lends out laptops or you manage a shop that utilises tablets, a locker system is bound to keep these items safe, ensuring your business continues to boom.

4. Reduction in loss or damage

Due to the way in which these lockers are secured, access is virtually impossible for anyone who has not been programmed into the system. With this in mind, stowing your valuables in a secure locker at the end of the day can give you peace of mind that your items will be safe in the event of an intrusion.

5. Sleek design

In contrast to manual lockers, these high-tech facilities are a lot sleeker and more professional looking. Further to this, in eradicating the need for keys, you can be sure that your electronic equipment is accessible whenever you want it, guaranteeing a streamlined experience for both you, your staff and your customers.
