Keys left in vehicles? Traka21 takes control

Wards of Olney are Buckinghamshire’s largest Independent Removal and Storage Company, also operating in Milton Keynes, Bedford & Northampton, UK. Wards is an established name in both commercial and residential removals, undertaking work for many large organisations such as the NHS, ranging from small office removals to large clinics, to helping families to move house in a stress free a way.

Key control of fleet vehicles has always been a headache for Wards. On some occasions, members of staff were leaving keys hidden in the vehicle, resulting in considerable amounts of time being lost searching for keys and missed appointments. Wards needed a system to account for all their keys. In addition to these requirements, Wards also needed control over who could access their exterior storage containers.

Traka21’s innovative plug and play system provides the very latest in intelligent key management. Simple, efficient and cost effective, Traka21 helps trace and account for every key or keyset, which is individually locked in place, ensuring that critical business operations are never jeopardised. Since the introduction of Traka21, Wards has seen a dramatic improvement in efficiency around managing and controlling their keys. Drivers are no longer searching for keys and have become more accountable for keys they are using.

We have found Traka21 to be a great tool for our business. With Traka21, we can keep tabs on who had what and when, and it also helps us in accounting for what hours they have worked. We have a number of outside storage containers which all have individual keys, so with Traka21, we can now control who has access to these. I think Traka21 is a great solution for any small to medium sized business.
