Intelligent key management fro BG Group.

Deister Electronics (UK) : 04 May, 2007  (Application Story)
Energy supplier opts for proxSafe electronic key management at Reading site to secure and control key issue, distribution and control.
When there are large numbers of employees working on multiple sites all around the world, mislaid or lost keys can quickly result in an organisation incurring considerable additional costs through lost man hours. BG Group, the global energy supplier with operations in over 25 countries across 5 world continents, has acted to safeguard their keys at the site in Thames Valley Park, Reading, purchasing a deister electronic proxSafe Key Management System. The proxSafe system is an intelligent key management system. It can secure large numbers of keys out of view in a stylish aluminium key cabinet, providing a cost-effective access control solution to doors which are still secured by a conventional lock and key. Smart RFID keyTags are at the heart of the system, which are secured in the cabinet using proxCylinders, a combination of a proximity reader and a mechanical lock.

Darren Harrold, Director of deister electronic UK, sees installations with such international organisations as being very important to the company's on-going growth and development, saying: "I believe that BG Group Plc will find proxSafe a very efficient and cost effective way of controlling key usage, and I hope that installations at other sites will follow in due course." proxSafe offers a number of configuration possibilities ranging from a stand-alone installation, becoming operational without any need for a personal computer, to being integrated within an organisation's I.T. network. Importantly for the management of users and keys, the proxSafe commander software allows assignment of keys to users, as well as providing detailed calendar and reporting functions.

An organisation's small but valuable items, such as mobile telephones, PDAs and digital cameras, can also be securely managed using proxSafe, and deister electronic offers a number of modular cabinet designs to provide such application flexibility.
