It’s likely that daily tasks critical to your business’ success require staff use of expensive devices and equipment. If these items are not readily available, staff can’t perform their jobs, customers’ needs aren’t met, safety obligations can’t be fulfilled and efficiency is drastically compromised.

Read on for six key factors for success with Traka’s Asset Management solutions, intelligent locker systems and Traka Web management software.

1.)  Authorized and controlled access of equipment

When it comes to accessing your equipment assets, you want to not only authorize, but control the status of the equipment from the moment it gets checked out to the moment it is returned.  Traka’s intelligent locker system provides an intuitive and powerful way to manage, track and report usage using the administration software, Traka Web.

Traka has software options to help manage and audit your retailer security needs at every level. Traka Web and Traka Touch are streamlined and intuitive software tools with innovative features, such as:

  • Easy access to multiple items quickly and efficiently
  • Reports on activity, status, utilization, exceptions, and permissions
  • Authentication via PIN, access badge or biometrics
  • Integration with existing access control, HR databases or third-party systems

 

2.)  Traceable assets leading to fewer losses and theft

Once an asset is removed from the storage space or locker, it can be difficult to track what happens to it along its journey. This is particularly frustrating, if there is theft or misplacement involved.  The key to increased accountability is traceability. 

Traka Web software traces and audits the complete history of all assets, locker and user transactions. Additionally, our Traka Web software generates notifications allowing you to track specific asset movements or when equipment is past due. This puts more responsibility and accountability upon the person who checked the item out, leveraging trust and constant contact between you, the user, and the asset.     

3.)  Lower operating costs with less time spent searching for assets

As an administrator, you have a million and one tasks to complete and oversee for your business or company. One of the last things you want to worry about is searching for a lost or stolen asset.  It’s costly, time-consuming and bothersome. In the retail industry alone, it can cost up to $200 per door to rekey.  

With the Traka asset management lockers, you get real-time activity, notes logging, item booking, and custom notifications on the status of your asset(s). 

4.)  Complete staff accountability

Protecting your assets internally is essential to a company culture of mutual respect and accountability within your business. Traka’s secured storage solutions allow you to centrally manage users on any authorized device on your network. This brings users and items side by side, making it easy to grant access to multiple items quickly and efficiently without the hassle of wondering who has what and when.  

5.)  RFID tagging enables per-device tracking

When users know that they are fully accountable for the assets they use, they become more responsible users.

With Traka’s Intelligent Asset Storage, each individual is uniquely identified within the Traka system via PIN, access card or biometrics, and only has access to authorized assets. This gives you complete visibility over exactly who removed an item, and the time it was issued and returned. All user activity is recorded, giving powerful admin control and reporting.

Through Traka’s deep integrations, your assets will become tools that drive your processes. Restrict a user from exiting a facility until his/her asset has been safely returned, or change access permissions for entire departments through your existing HR database.

6.) Easy integration with 3rd party systems

No need to worry about overlap or incompatibility with your administration system. You can customize and integrate Traka Web software easily. It’s fast to configure, which can greatly reduce administration overhead and benefit the processes critical to your daily operation.  

When you integrate a scalable Traka solution, you have the capability to automate the process of logging each user’s interaction with your keys and equipment, and efficiently audit and monitor systems to keep your records reliable and tamper-proof. This allows your business to consistently keep your employees accountable, and removes the need for constant human oversight.

Our team at Traka is focused on helping you secure your business against external and internal threats while decreasing high administrative costs, providing you a fast return on your investment, and a lasting improvement to your bottom line.
