Cut Fuel Costs and Eliminate Wasted Energy
Making business more sustainable is a growing challenge for us all, and made even tougher for any business with dispersed sites or a mobile workforce. Mileage mounts up when workers return to base to collect keys or update their access rights. Car and van use eats into budgets and produces harmful carbon emissions. Despite advances in engine efficiency, mobile workers use more fuel and increase a company’s carbon footprint. Business will be more sustainable quickly if the mileage they travel is reduced. Yet reducing miles while maintaining security is not easy, if you rely on mechanical keys to lock remote sites. A Cliq Connect system from Assa Abloy eliminates the need for workers to return to headquarters to collect or return a mechanical key. Everyone carries their own programmable Cliq key and keeps its access rights up-to-date on the move with just a smartphone. This means fewer miles are driven and less money is wasted on unnecessary fuel so the system makes an immediate operational impact. The wire-free locking system is based on multiple mechatronic cylinder formats and programmable electronic keys. A key-holder no longer updates their access rights physically in person by returning to base, nor even moves to the nearest programming device – all they need is the Cliq Connect app and a Bluetooth connection. The app pairs a programmable key, via an encrypted connection, with the Cliq Web Manager. A system administrator can access the application – from anywhere – to update a key-holder’s access rights or key validity. The system is easily managed through the secure cloud-based software that is interfaced with the app.
