Improved control with electronic keys

Issue 5 2023 Retail (Industry), Access Control & Identity Management, Products & Solutions

Securing your shop and stock in a retail environment while ensuring a seamless shopping experience for customers can be a challenging task. Traditional keys pose numerous security concerns, such as anonymity, potential loss or theft, and the inability to determine which key was used. Consequently, distributing various keys to store employees often inconveniences customers with long waiting times. However, an innovative solution has emerged – electronic access systems.

By adopting an electronic access system, retailers can equip all employees with a Yebotech Key to enhance their ability to assist customers more effectively, leading to increased sales. This solution eliminates the need to wait for physical keys and streamlines the workflow.

The system’s functionality revolves around a management software that allows customised configurations for the electronic keys. Store managers can define parameters such as time restrictions, assigning keys to specific assistants, and more. Every action within the system is audited, ensuring accountability for all key holders. The user-friendly management website enables easy modification of key and user access rights, while providing a comprehensive overview of key and lock usage. This auditability empowers store managers to focus on their responsibilities, knowing that the key holders are accountable for their actions.

YeboTech’s rugged digital locks eliminate the need for batteries or wiring. With a wide range of lock options available, from cam locks for stores to weather-resistant padlocks, these locks can be deployed both inside and outside the store, all controlled under a unified system. Moreover, the locks can serve as proof-of-presence, enabling the establishment of checkpoint routes and generating notifications for missed checkpoints.

YeboTech offers a secure, convenient, and auditable solution for securing your shop and all stock in the retail environments. By using this solution, retailers can empower their employees, reduce stock shrinkage, streamline operations, and maintain comprehensive control over key and lock usage, along with the added flexibility of serving as proof-of-presence.
