ASSA ABLOY releases white paper on key management for void properties

  • 10 Aug 2018

ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has released its latest white paper on key management and control for void properties in the social housing sector.

Entitled ‘Key management and control for void properties’, the white paper outlines how ASSA CLIQ® Remote can streamline operations, reduce the risk of lost or copied keys being compromised, cut costs, and improve an organisation’s sustainability credentials.

With time spent by local authorities physically handing over keys to maintenance staff and contractors at an all-time high and causing workflow delays, increased risk of loss of keys, and considerable delays, the white paper aims to offer a solution. All of these issues can potentially lead to large costs for councils and housing associations so ASSA ABLOY is taking a look at the impact that effective key management and control can have on improving operational efficiencies for void properties, as well as ensuring budgets are used more efficiently.

ASSA CLIQ® Remote is a simple-to-use but highly intelligent electro-mechanical locking system that allows only those with the necessary authority to access a building. It enables owners to have complete control over who can access a property, with members of staff allocated a single key, and entry permissions that can be altered remotely or set for only a certain length of time.

The guide’s author, Simon Wilson, National Sales Manager for ASSA CLIQ® Remote, said: “In the social housing sector, the pressure to re-let houses as quickly as possible and work to tight budgets should not be underestimated. Nevertheless, properties will inevitably stand empty between tenancies, while staff and contractors carry out the necessary repairs and maintenance.

“As a result, the need for an efficient and effective key management process is really important. Our latest guide discusses this in more detail, while demonstrating the benefits of adopting ASSA CLIQ® Remote. It has proven to help save local authorities and housing associations considerable amounts of time and money.”
