In July 2017, the PSMI headquarters building was undergoing a renovation and expansion project, which included a new lunchroom. While the company had for some time been considering updating the traditional lock and key access installed when the headquarters first opened more than a decade before, the realization they now needed a secure way to provide access to the lunchroom for approximately 100+ employees jumpstarted the process of identifying a solution.
PSMI was impressed by the VIZpin cloud-based system and decided to have readers installed not only at the lunchroom, but the server room, main entrance and shipping door as well. VIZpin’s smartphone-based solution eliminated the worry of not knowing who had keys and the possibility that keys were being duplicated or retained by former employees and consultants. The solution also eliminated concerns about having doors unlocked for a growing number of employees coming and going during regular hours and the increased potential for doors to be left unlocked at day’s end.
