Managing access control for 23 offices all from one place with SALTO KSRead how Wilink, specialist in financial solutions with their headquarters in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium found the electronic access control solution for their 23 offices.
Wilink is the product of three merging companies. The estate agent in financial solutions (credits, real estate, investments, banking solutions, insurances and retirement funds) is determined to ensure and protect their client’s financial status throughout their lifetime. This asks for a discrete approach for all 23 offices. This is why facility manager Frederic Beyens decided they were in need of a modern access control solution.
Wilink needed a system that allowed office managers to control who gets access when to one of their 23 offices with minimal effort. When Wilink’s clients entered the building they used to automatically get access to the several offices. This was a big privacy issue.
“The overarching facility management of all 23 offices is now controlled from a central place. That is why we needed to invest in a user-friendly access control system that made our lives easier”
In the summer of 2017 we replaced all our mechanical locks inside the building with SALTO KS wireless electronic locks. This solved our problem with clients that automatically had access to our offices when they got into the building. Now the office managers just click a button and create a user profile for a new client and determine when and to what location they are allowed access.
Frederic Beyens (facility manager at Wilink) decided in favour of real-time access solution SALTO KS Keys as a Service (formerly Clay by SALTO) since it fulfilled all his requirements, such as:
- 24/7 tracking of door/lock events
- Access management for multiple locations
- Easy to manage system
- Possibility to combine with an alarm system
- Mobile access management
- Ability to secure in case credentials get lost
- Fine tuning of access rights
“The 24/7 event view is extremely helpful when there are 23 offices to maintain.”
Noticeable improvement in security
“The main requirement for Wilink was to be able to control access for multiple locations in a user-friendly way. With SALTO KS the days that clients just randomly would walk into the office are overdue to SALTO KS’s high-security standard. We now have a reliable cloud-based access control system we can manage ourselves with just a click of the mouse or a touch of the hand, which is exactly what we were looking for. “ Frederic Beyens
Wilink aims to manage a total of 23 offices equipped with SALTO KS by the end of 2019.
