Access Control Systems Offer Businesses More than Security
There’s no doubt that a modern access control system serves as an indispensable security tool for businesses in and around the Memphis, TN area. They ensure that the correct people enter and exit a building or area. But did you know that the latest access control technologies feature several additional operational tools that are often overlooked?
The Not so Obvious Benefits of Access Control Systems
Access control systems can increase a company’s operational efficiencies and lower its costs, while also reducing its carbon footprint. Here’s how:
Increase Operational Efficiencies
Most businesses require payroll systems, and modern access control systems can supply data in a format that is compatible with payroll packages. This allows the tiring and error-prone process of entering staff attendance data manually to be completely eliminated. Even in moderately sized businesses, this improvement in payroll efficiency can create useful savings in the payroll department. For larger businesses, the savings can be significant. As the economy continues to face serious challenges and uncertainties, businesses can really benefit from this opportunity to save on payroll expenses.
Access control systems can even manage parking by controlling entry and exit of cars, and they can detect if a parking floor is already full or has a vacancy.

Today, many businesses are using access control systems to control printing and photocopying. Prior to copying or printing a document, the pass holder has to present his or her pass to the machine. This eliminates unauthorized usage of company equipment, and it easily records the volume of copying and printing carried out by individual users. This gives all users an incentive to print only what is necessary, thus reducing expenses and benefitting the environment.
Reduce Carbon Footprint
In today’s business world, exhibiting environmental responsibility has become a priority—after all, consumers are largely becoming more environmentally conscious. Access control systems monitor and track how many people are allowed in various rooms or areas. It’s fairly simple to configure the building management system so that it automatically turns off unnecessary lighting and reduces the heating in unoccupied areas. This helps businesses save on energy costs, and it puts them in a prime position to showcase its eco-friendly initiative to prospective consumers.
Modern access control systems help deter crime and ensure that the right people have entry to different areas of a business. They can also help a company increase its operational efficiencies and lower its costs, while also reducing its carbon footprint. Call us or contact us online for access control system installation.
