Protect Your Business With Biometric Access Control

When you’re searching for top-rated security for your Tulsa business, don’t underestimate the advantages of a biometric access control system. While at first biometrics may appear to be more robust or costly than you need, this type of access control has proven to be an invaluable resource for many businesses and is now more accessible and cost-effective than ever before.

Biometrics offer a superior combination of strength, affordability, convenience, and ease of use,” Kantech, one of our top access control providers, noted.

Why should you consider biometric access control for your business?

Numerous cost-saving benefits. While biometrics can be used in conjunction with card readers for added security, they can also eliminate the need for ID/access cards and keys. These physical credentials can be costly to replace over time with workforce turnover and if different access cards are required for different sites or levels, such as in a hospital or on a large campus. No longer would you need to hire a locksmith to change all the locks when an employee with access to sensitive areas or information was terminated. Just delete their biometric data.

The amount of money companies lose every year to employee time theft is shocking. It’s been estimated that the average employee steals about 4 hours every week. Time theft through “buddy punching” is also a huge problem along with other forms of employee fraud. Biometrics can help to easily eliminate these time and attendance thefts and provide more accurate time management, reducing payroll costs.

As the technology for biometric systems increased and their popularity increased, the cost of these security systems decreased, making them much more cost-effective for the average commercial consumer. Biometric systems have also become easier to install and are very scalable and versatile, making them an economical choice for many businesses.

Increased security. Of course, the most obvious benefit to biometric systems is the increased security they provide. Passcodes, keys, and access cards can be lost, duplicated, stolen, or shared whereas biometrics are accurate and reliable.

With biometrics, you can know exactly who has entered your business or a particular area and the specific time they entered. This greatly increases employee accountability and allows you to easily monitor employee activity from afar. This biometric technology offers a level of added strength to security systems that businesses need in today’s world. The increased security that these systems provide, especially in relation to their affordability, makes them a clear and easy choice for many companies.

Convenient, ease to use, and flexible.  Convenience has become second-nature in our world today. With biometrics, you no longer have to remember keys or passcodes for access, which can be time-consuming and tedious especially in multi-level buildings or on campuses, not to mention if these passcodes or keys need changed to update security.

These advanced security systems are very versatile. They can be used in a variety of industries and for many different applications including database access, payments, banking, physical access control, POS systems, and time and attendance. These systems are easy to use and are easy to maintain and expand. They easily integrate with other access control systems.
