Key and Asset Management Technology at GSX 2019
Morse Watchmans showcased its KeyWatcher Touch, AssetWatcher, and KeyWatcher fleet key and asset management solutions at GSX 2019 this week.
“We are excited to show GSX 2019 attendees how key management and asset control can help them to create a state-of-the-art security system for their organization,” said Fernando Pires, CEO, Morse Watchmans. “We continue to be completely focused on providing innovative solutions for our customers to help them achieve their business goals, reduce costs, and secure their enterprise.”
Morse Watchmans’ KeyWatcher Touch key management system features a 7” touchscreen with an easy-to-use interface and patented SmartKey system with KeyAnywhere technology to make it simple to remove and return a key to any key cabinet in an enterprise.
New features to KeyWatcher Touch include remote functions added to the TrueTouch Software that supports multiple user logins for key returns and removals. A new “Key Group Associations” feature allows users more specific key access to be configured directly through the access control system. This feature makes it easier for users to cover special situations, such as when an employee is out of the office that day, or if they fit the criteria for a specific profile, but temporarily need some additional keys.
AssetWatcher is a flexible, scalable, and highly capable RFID-enabled locker system.
It can support more than 10,000 users on a single system and is configurable in three modes. AssetWatcher’s RFID technology allows users to easily track who is removing or replacing an asset, as well as when and where in the system the asset has been taken from or placed. Available in 10, 22, or 34-locker configurations, each system is designed to be freestanding and can be mounted to the wall or the floor.
A number of modes allow AssetWatcher to accommodate a wide variety of uses. Classic Mode allows assets to be returned either to any open locker or to be assigned to a specific locker. Personal Mode allows assets to be added to the system for tracking, with permissions based on lockers rather than assets. Leased Mode allows users to “lease” a locker temporarily. Owner Mode assigns individuals with a specific locker, which may or may not be shared with other users to accommodate shared or specific assets that may be used by one or more persons.
KeyWatcher Fleet is the first key security system that puts users in command of vehicle distribution, comprehensive utilization, right-sizing of a fleet, and more. The software allows fleet managers to create user role-based “Pools”, or groups of vehicles, to assign each vehicle accordingly.
A convenient dashboard displays real-time status, bookings summary, vehicle use and many other data points to instantly provide the pulse of the fleet.
Built on the KeyWatcher Touch hardware, KeyWatcher Fleet uses the same 16, 8, and 6-key modules, along with the same card and locker modules. Unique PIN codes ensure only authorized individuals can access keys, or users can add an optional card or fingerprint reader for even stronger key security, allowing users to manage thousands of keys and users with a single system or network.
