Ievo integrates with Keytracker

Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear (UK)

A new integration of cutting edge biometric recognition technology and key management systems is offering the very highest levels of security for organisations managing large number of priority keys. The system is the result of co-operation between Ievo Ltd, the Newcastle-based manufacturer of biometric recognition systems, and Keytracker Ltd, the Midlands manufacturer of key management systems.

Andy Smith, General Manager of Keytracker, explained, “We’ve developed our restricted key access systems for a huge variety of sectors ranging from the construction, engineering, property, education and health sectors to the automobile retail trade – anywhere where access to vehicles, plant or different areas is controlled by physical keys. By combining these systems with Ievo’s biometric recognition technology and the corresponding software, we have created an ultra-secure solution that ensures and tracks the release of specific keys to specific people.”

The resultant restricted key access system incorporates state-of-the-art hardware with easy to operate administration software restricting access to only those keys the user is authorised to use. The integration of the Ievo Ultimate finger print readers ensure that the potential for fraudulent access via stolen swipe cards or pin codes is completely removed whilst the registration process has been integrated into the existing software allowing direct and simple user control and saving both the end user and installer time and money.”

“We’re already talking to potential clients within healthcare, where areas like drug storage must be kept under strict control, logistics and construction where only licensed personnel are allowed access to specific vehicles and plant, but the possibilities are endless.”

Richard Forsyth, UK Sales Manager of Ievo Ltd, added, “We’re delighted to be working with Keytracker to provide the ultimate in key access security systems. By the addition of our biometric recognition system, we’ve created an additional level of security to accessing keys for a variety of purposes. Operators can now very easily establish access to specific keys and the track this for external security and internal administrative purposes.”
