Shopping centres, supermarkets and retailers of all kinds have always had to be able to adapt to customer demand and ever-changing environments. With eCLIQ® technology, Mul-T-Lock aims to make security one less thing for facilities and store managers to think about.
Many supermarkets and shopping centres are currently seeing an increase in deliveries and cleaning processes due to COVID-19 demands, which in turn is increasing the amount of people requiring around-the-clock access to each store. Each visit requires at least one additional member of staff to grant entry and supervise, resulting in increased overheads.
As well as this additional pressure, managing the number and whereabouts of staff and customers in any given store is paramount – now more than ever – and security should always remain a top priority.
Working on a modular system, Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ® access control locks are quick and easy to install in place of mechanical cylinders. Retrofittable to doors, cabinets and gates, and requiring no cabling, the system offers a low cost and low maintenance solution for all types of supermarkets.
With eCLIQ® technology, store managers have the ability to schedule unique permissions and even time-limited access for individual keys, providing a tailored solution for members of staff who are coming and going at various times of the day. The system also enables managers to grant limited access to contractors and delivery drivers within certain times and areas.
As well as this, eCLIQ®’s audit trail capabilities provide facilities managers with comprehensive data illustrating who accesses which lock and when. This ensures administrators can allow access remotely, without the need for a physical supervisor to be there for the duration of the works.
If a key is lost or a member of staff leaves, access can also be revoked remotely, which is particularly useful for supermarkets that suffer from a high staff turnover or those that employ seasonal staff for busier times of the year.
This not only offers enhanced security, but also significantly reduces whole life costing, as it removes the need to replace physical locks. Plus, keys can be validated daily, weekly or monthly to keep them continuously secure.
eCLIQ® cylinders are suitable for a number of different applications, from cabinets housing restricted items to cold storage areas. In fact, just one key can access doors, cabinets, cupboards, elevators, machines and many other locking devices.
There is also a varied range of compatible padlocks available, such as Mul-T-Lock’s NEG10, Diamond Hasplock and ArmaDLock, which are designed for all weather conditions – making them ideal for applications such as perimeter gates.
