Jonathan Rose Companies’ Great Lakes Region office often receives executives who are travelling from its other seven locations and was seeking a way to grant them access regardless of when they arrive. A key card-based solution was ruled out because it would require someone to physically be on-site to deliver the keys as executives arrive, and keypads were not an option because they offer little security.
In addition, J. Rose’s New York City office was already using a key card access control system and finding the management of key cards to be an administrative burden. COO Mike Daly explains “Each week at least one person leaves their key card at home. Sometimes they borrow someone else’s, which compromises security. And, each time a key card gets lost, someone must take the time to remove it from the system and issue a new one, which is both a hassle and an expense.”
J. Rose explored VIZpin Smartphone Access Control and found that it is significantly less expensive to install than key card solutions. In addition, they were pleased to discover that VIZpin’s PLUS service offers the flexibility to grant or revoke access anytime, from anywhere, without having to issue a physical credential.
