When I came to work at Brookfield Apartments, they already had KeyTrak in place. I was a bit skeptical, because I’d never heard of it or even used an automated key control system before. The thought was a little overwhelming. After just the first day, however, I was loving it. Being able to electronically keep track of all our keys has been a lifesaver.
There’s so much more you can do with KeyTrak than you can with a basic key cabinet. The fingerprint scanner makes logging in quick and easy, and it ensures that only you can sign in under your name. That way, when you need to pull a report, you can see who took out what key and when. We have a report that runs at 10 p.m. every night and sends an email to the property manager, so we always know which keys have been checked out and not returned every day. Since each person’s name is attached to every key they remove, it’s easy to track them down as opposed to asking the entire office staff.
I would encourage any property to look into KeyTrak, because it’s a surefire way to guarantee everyone takes responsibility. KeyTrak is a godsend.
