New hardware is great, but it’s the software that can make the biggest difference in the day-to-day life of your business

3 Ways Access Control Helps Day-to-Day Business Operations

When we talk about the benefits of access control for businesses, it’s often the hardware side that gets the limelight. That makes a certain amount of sense; the hardware is the flashier, easier to grasp piece of the access control equation.

It’s important to remember, however, that it’s the software behind the hardware that keeps these systems humming and provides the biggest benefit. It’s the software that knits the system together, and integrating it with other commercial automation systems is how you get the biggest benefits from these technological upgrades. That’s why we wanted to highlight three ways that improved access control software makes day-to-day operations easier for businesses in The Woodlands region of Texas.

Whether you handle much of the IT and security for your business yourself or have someone else handle it for you, you don’t want someone to be bound to a desk all day. If you’re handling these systems yourself, you have other things you need to do to keep your business humming, and you want your IT staff to have that same freedom and flexibility.

Newer access control systems free you or others from being bound to a computer terminal all day. Many systems give you control over your system from your phone, which helps you keep tabs on everything that’s happening without needing to stay in one spot.

That sort of flexibility also extends to the configuration of your system itself, including the hardware. The right software lets your control your locks from the same platform. These systems also let you integrate multiple databases under one platform, which improves your workflow and minimizes the chance of errors.


Another way a revamped access control system can help is by letting you tailor your system to your business’ specific needs. You can easily create different access protocols for different levels within your organization’s hierarchy or for specific users. Maybe employees with keycards can only access certain areas, or perhaps you have a contractor who needs temporary access to some areas but not others. Whatever the situation is, you can easily adapt and find a solution, then implement it quickly to get back to other tasks.


It’s important to keep track of who’s coming and going within your business. You want to make sure employees aren’t entering spaces they aren’t supposed to, and you can track the foot traffic within your business to make efficiency improvements. With the right software, you can quickly and easily see who has entered which spaces, what time they entered, when they left, and so on. All of this information is useful data and helps you improve the efficiency of your workforce.
