Making Things Easy For Yourself
There is nothing worse than your business alarm going off a 1am in the morning. In these situations,the person with the key,known as the key holder,will need to go to the business property and let the security company or other persons in. The fact that most of these alerts are false alarms will only add to your frustration and annoyance.
When you utilise a keyholding service,they will send someone to the property instead. This means that you can stay in bed when there is a midnight alarm,whether it is a false one or not. The service will also ensure that the property is fully secure.
The Reaction Time
If you have a member of staff holding the keys and they do not live very close to your business property,the reaction time of the security company will be compromised. Of course you can give the key to the staff member who lives nearest to the business,they might not always be a person 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 centre of town,the service may have an office there where your keys could be kept. It is vital to note that you need to find out where your keys will be held before you hire the service to get the benefit of fastest reaction times.
Keeping Your Staff Safe
The safety of your staff is vital and this is something you need to think about when appointing someone as a keyholder. The keyholder could be in danger when they visit the premises 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 business. 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 issues that could occur at your property.
Always Having Access To A Key
Most people do not think about the importance of having spare keys for their business. This is actually very important because you never know when you might need them. A keyholding service will always have a set of your keys that you can obtain a moment’s notice.
As you can see keyholding services offer a lot of benefits that you need to know about. These benefits include convenience and better reaction time. They also keep your staff safe and will ensure you always have a spare key if you need one.
