PROTEC2 CLIQ locking from ABLOY was the only solution which met every criterion. Wireless cylinders are installed at all ZeFil’s dispersed operating sites and more than 30 programmable CLIQ keys are distributed to employees and service providers. Each person carries their own key programmed with personalised access permissions. Key-holders could choose between classic updating of key access rights via a programming device in central Toulouse, or CLIQ Connect keys updated via an app on the user’s smartphone. Deployment took place very quickly and user adoption was almost immediate. The time saved is huge for everyone who needs to access ZeFil sites.
For CLIQ Connect key-holders, travel time previously wasted getting the right mechanical key is now spent on-site, working towards optimum network operation. Good project management, prior to implementation, was another key factor to success. ZeFil worked closely with technical consultants at ASSA ABLOY to identify access points and the required user profile types. All ZeFil access rights must be updated every 24 hours, which ensures a high level of security for the fibre network.
