They are very pleased with the installed system especially as it has already led to one member of staff being caught with his hand in the till to the tune of $1,000. They have suspected the theft occurrences hadbeen going on for some time but were unable to identify the culprit with their manual key management process. Last week they were able to check the software report to pinpoint the culprit

CIC’s key management system is being used for one of our major tenants where key security is of utmost importance. This system is also utilised to issue keys to contractors on site and has proven to be an excellent way of issuing and controlling restricted access keys. In my experience, the CIC key control system is an ideal way to control key monitoring for the building management industry.

School Principals are now business managers, controlling their own budgets as well as being the boss of everyone, including students, parents, teachers and the community. They are responsible for making sure that the school runs smoothly. This includes the security of the school and they can be called 24/7 regarding matters of school security.

The Problem

  • Contractors, such as cleaners, do not understand the real cost of a lost key
  • Insurance costs to cover you for keys and the excess cost is prohibitive
  • Papertrail is not accurate and often not completed accurately making it an unusable document
  • Time is wasted daily investigating lost keys, reporting and determining who was responsible
  • OH&S issues are a major concern with the new work health laws and licenses must be checked to make sure a qualified person is using a vehicle or forklift
  • Accomadation blocks for students are not managed to ensure the safety of residents.

Lock-and-Key Systems: In many cases, a conventional lock-and-key system is still the best option. Many schools readily admit that dozens of keys or more are floating around, lost, stolen or unaccounted for. If many keys have to be accounted for, checked out, and tracked, and this is spiralling out of control, look into a key management system that tightens control, or electronically establishes an audit trail showing who last checked a key out.

The biggest problem is that teachers and school staff don’t understand the value of a key nor do they understand the cost associated with a lost key. It is the norm, rather than the exception, that secondary schools are having to rekey costing anywhere from $25,000 - $30,000. The school must also cover the cost of “lost” expensive equipment such as computers and cars. Schools have a responsibility to secure student and financial information but without control of keys this is also compromised due to poor management and record keeping of keys.

Key security issues have become a top priority for most organisations and hospitals are no exception. Security in hospitals is a high priority with staff managing multiple keys that need to be controlled and monitored 24 hours a day. CIC Technology has addressed the unique security needs of health care facilities in hospitals such as Royal Womens and Childrens Hospital and John James Hospital, Canberra.

Management must: control movement of keys, ensure that anyone taking a key is entitled to do so, ensure reports on stock can be done monthly.

“Casinos focus on security. Large amounts of cash flow move through a casino, tempting people to cheat the system. Security today consists of physical security measures that are controlled by administrators to prevent stealing by employees and provide a very tight legal audit trail”
