10 Businesses That Benefit From Gate Card Readers

Jul 27th 2015 at 12:38 AM

There are many businesses that could benefit from gate card readers. In fact, there are 10 specific situations where they are an ideal choice for a business.

Gate card readers help secure a business’ property by only allowing individuals who are issued a special cards to enter the property. Employees are issued a card that is swiped at the gate. If the card is valid, the gate will open. This card is usually used to get both in and out of the area. The following are 10 business situations where a gate card reader could be beneficial.

If a business stores a lot of expensive materials, like copper, or equipment that could easily be stolen, like hand tools, then a gate card reader could provide some needed security. This is also true for a business that is creating new products or trying to protect trade secrets and wants to keep out anyone who is not authorized.

Some businesses are located in high crime areas. When personal safety is a concern, employees shouldn’t be walking out in to an open parking area. One secured by a reader offers a peace of mind. It is also helpful for businesses located in areas where there are issues with the public taking its private parking spots. A secured gate will prevent anyone but authorized personnel from parking.

For some companies, traffic in and out can get a little crazy. Without having a security guard to stop each and every vehicle, it is hard to properly monitor the comings and goings. A reader can easily do this for a business, though. Additionally, tracking deliveries, including the time, can also be made easier when every vehicle in and out is monitored.

A high employee turnover can cause security nightmares. With a reader system, though, employees are easily added or removed, so this is no problem. Furthermore, there are no more worries about employees who need to get in and out of the gate when they work over or outside business hours because the system is flexible.

It can get expensive to employ full time security guards to sit at the gates and let people in and out. A reader allows a business to free up these guards or to hire fewer guards since it doesn’t have to be monitored at the gate. Also for some businesses, where a security guard may not be feasible, the reader easily allows employees to come and go while keeping things secure.

Gate card readers can be beneficial for a variety of business situations. They offer a way to secure the property while also protecting employees and monitoring who comes and goes. Visit this website to learn more about gate card readers in Austin.
