There are few things worse than your business alarm going off a 1am in the morning. In these situations,the staff member with the key,known as the key holder,has to go to the business property and let the police or other persons in. The fact that most of these alarms are false alarms will only add to your frustration and annoyance.
When you use a keyholding company,they will dispatch someone to the property instead. This means that you can stay in bed when there is a midnight alarm,regardless of whether it is a false one or not. The service will also make sure that the property is fully secure.
If you have a member of staff holding the keys and they live somewhere that is not close to your business property,the reaction time of the security company will be compromised. While you can give the key to the staff member who lives nearest to the business,they might not always be the employees that you want to choose,or who will even take it. The ideal solution is to use a keyholding service.
In such instances the reaction time will be better with a service because they are often located close to business hubs or have mobile patrols. If your property is in an industrial estate,the service may have an office on the same estate. If your business is in the middle of town,the service may have an office there where your keys could be kept. It is important to note that you need to check where your keys will be held before you employ the service to get the benefit of fastest reaction times.
The safety of your staff is important and this is something you need to think about when appointing someone as the keyholder. The keyholder could be in danger when they attend the site after the alarm call. This is true even if the security company is already there.
When you work with a keyholding provider,they will have trained professionals going to your premises. They will be trained to stay safe in these instances and that is something you or your staff will be lacking. The training of the keyholding employee will also help them assess and remedy any other problems that could occur at your property.
Having Spare Keys
Most people do not think about the importance of having spare keys for their premises. This is actually very important because you never know when you might need some. A keyholding service will always have a copy of your keys that you can obtain a moment’s notice.
As you can see keyholding services offer many benefits that you need to know about. These benefits include convenience and better reaction time. They also keep your staff safe and will make sure you always have a spare key if you need one.
