Can any staff member walk up and take keys off a pegboard? Or do you have a staff member responsible for handing out keys?
If so it’s time to start thinking about modern key management solutions.
Ensure your keys are only accessed by authorised individuals, for the times when they’re authorised to take the keys and for the vehicles they are authorised and licenced to use. Secure storage and access.

There is much more to key management then just ensuring you have the keys available. Best practice key management ensures your keys are only accessed when authorised, by the authorised individual, and ensures they are appropriately licenced to use the vehicle they are accessing the keys for.
Traditionally, fleets have managed their keys through pinboards, mail slots or drawers full of keys, all managed and watched by a dedicated staff member. But there is a better way. Modern electronic key cabinets allow much greater control over access to your keys – and all without requiring a on-premise staff member to manage access across the day. And even more exciting is the evolution of keyless vehicle access, removing the need for centralised fleet key management solutions, instead providing access to your fleet vehicles using your phone, staff card, or RFID tag.
By removing the staffing requirements of manning a key room, organisations can instead invest in the optimisation of their fleets. With the greater control and accountability that comes with a key management solution, vehicles are also more secure and less likely to be taken without apporpriate oversight.
This oversight extends to the appropriate licencing of individuals accessing the keys for a vehicle. With the integration of a pool booking solution, the wider management of authorisation, licencing, timing and vehicle allocation is able to managed, improving the overall operation and utilisation of your fleet, and ensuring your have control over all your fleets movements.
