Australia’s biggest property group’s key management was extremely inefficient. Not an ideal situation for any organisation – but especially one that needs to secure a huge volume of keys across an expansive property portfolio.

Although the impact of this inefficiency spread far and wide, the biggest cost was undeniable: people’s time.

Employees and contractors were wasting hours travelling (just to collect and return keys from a central location).

Security personnel were escorting people from site to site to keep keys from going astray. And admin staff were constantly on the phone chasing up missing keys. That’s not to mention the double-handling when it came to providing building access, maintenance and cleaning services.

And with no way to monitor who had what keys, or when, the threat of a security risk was simply too high.
