Traka timetables key management in education sector at AUCSO’s Annual Conference

Traka attended the Association of University Chief Security Officers’ (AUCSO) 2019 Annual Conference to present its latest automated intelligent key and asset management systems designed to ensure the safety of students, staff and contractors across university campuses.

The AUCSO Annual Conference was held on 2-4 April at Aston University in Birmingham to showcase the latest innovations and Best Practice relating to security management within universities, colleges and institutions of higher and further education.

Traka’s key management system was on display to present simple ways in which to control keys and manage campus facilities, including full and compliant audit trail capability of keys and users.

Live demonstrations of Traka’s intelligent S-Series electronic key cabinet highlighted its ability to allow only authorised users to access buildings, facilities, secure areas and equipment.

Wayne Kynaston, Traka’s UK sales manager, observed: “Good security on campus not only helps to prevent crime, but also contributes towards a positive image for any higher educational facility. It’s the responsibility of all to create a safe and welcoming environment for students, staff and visitors.”

Kynaston added: “Traka has proven experience in delivering tailored key and asset management systems with full audit trail capability that can instantly integrate into the day-to-day life of security teams. AUCSO’s Annual Conference was the perfect opportunity to demonstrate our true capability directly to key buyers and influencers and discuss individual requirements to ensure compliance with current regulations.”

Visitors to Traka’s stand witnessed how the company’s innovative modular lockers can manage specialist equipment such as body-worn cameras now increasingly being adopted by staff across the education sector.

In conclusion, Kynaston informed Risk Xtra: “The use of body-worn camera technology within the education sector is fast becoming a common solution to act as a deterrent and improve accountability and transparency. For them to operate at their optimum capability, they must be ready for use by authorised personnel. We were able to show how our solutions can make an instant difference to image storage and availability.”
