Whitepaper: Boosting efficiency and streamlining security with an integrated access control solution

IFSEC 2019

WATCH: How Traka key management solutions find operational efficiencies

Solving key management challenges in the prison sector, access control integrations and becoming a one-stop shop were among the talking points in the interview below with Steve Bumphrey, UK sales director, Traka.

He also discussed the benefits of becoming an ASSA ABLOY company in April 2012 and a problem-solving ethos that makes customers more process-efficient – and in turn customers can pass on consequent savings to their customers.

Traka systems help customers secure, manage and audit critical keys and assets like electronic devices, equipment and more.

For more in-depth insights on Traka key management systems, read the interview we did with Steve Bumphrey in the run-up to IFSEC 2019.

The interview was filmed at IFSEC 2019, ExCeL London, in June. “The Traka stand created a real buzz at IFSEC 2019,” said Bumphrey. “Our new proposition as a global solutions provider enabled us to display powerful R&D capability, with TrakaWEB being a prime example of presenting a connected future with management tools for the protection of essential assets.

“Visitors to the stand were really enthusiastic about how Traka is helping to drive integration, without compromising quality.  The feedback and number of sectors showing interest highlighted our ability to offer bespoke solutions to suit individual market requirements.  We are looking forward to continuing discussions and further demonstrating Traka’s impressive management solutions.”

On the stand, Traka also held live displays of its latest system offerings, including specialist modular lockers.  Bespoke in design and created to manage different types of equipment such as body-worn cameras, which are increasingly being adopted by a number of sectors and often required to be instantly available for use in fast moving situations.

Traka’s dedicated integration zone showcased the ability to meet individual customer requirements and demonstrated asset return assurance in a seamless access control process.

Traka demonstrated its innovative key management portfolio, including scalable L-Touch, S-Touch and M-Touch solutions, to offer simple ways to control keys and manage different facilities, including full and compliant audit trail capability of keys and users.

Steve concluded: “IFSEC was a great success for Traka, as an opportunity to present our latest product and services solutions, and our expertise as a team; both from a technical and market-led sales perspective.  The next stage is to deliver on our conversations with end users and prove we really are ‘local when you need us and global when it counts.”
