Enhanced data analytics unleash power of electronic access control

CLIQ IS a wireless access control system developed by ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions that’s based on programmable electronic and electromechanical keys, cylinders and padlocks. The system can be managed securely from anywhere with an Internet connection via the CLIQ Web Manager (CWM).

Could the data your access control system generates reveal priceless business insights? In many businesses today, the answer is a very definite ‘Yes’. The problem is how to analyse that data quickly and accurately in order to realise demonstrably valuable business benefits.

A new reporting and analytics tool for CLIQ access control systems enables security and facility managers to extract, visualise and analyse the necessary data from their own premises.

The CWM tool renders all system data easy to understand and export for sharing with staff and stakeholders across the business. If data really is the “new oil of the digital economy” then this tool helps CLIQ wireless access control customers tap it efficiently.

The new CWM tool streamlines decision-making, informing it with data drawn from the security system. It also frees security managers from their desk. All of the tool’s data and functionality are available inside the Amazon QuickSight app for Apple and Android systems. Any authorised individual within the organisation can access its valuable insights from anywhere in the world.

Visual dashboards for faster analysis

This new tool assists an access control system to do more than just keep people and assets safe. Data that the system generates every day can actively contribute towards business success.

A clear visual layout helps managers to spot relevant data – and any anomalies – at a glance. The bespoke dashboard offers a rapid system overview to help identify the most used keys, view heat maps and cold maps of lock usage and spot keys whose access has been denied most often. Drilling down to a more granular single lock or key level helps managers identify who’s using which openings and when and to decide whether staff or contractors have the appropriate access rights. Such tasks become simpler and even instant.

At a glance, the tool helps security managers track relevant business activity. They will spot critical patterns in weekly or monthly access use to help plan maintenance schedules more efficiently, for example, with many more bespoke insights available into what’s happening on-site.

The new reporting and analytics tool is available as a simple subscription add-on to new or current CWM users. CWM already enables a wide range of security workflows, including real-time access management. It can integrate access management with existing business process software to build a single interface which controls everything. The reporting and analytics tool can help businesses make smarter, better and data-informed decisions.
