CLIQ®: hassle-free access and workflow management
No two companies manage security workflows in the same way. Some need processes to grant security managers in different time-zones, and speaking different languages, their own tailored access administration permissions. Others need system access for multiple administrators at the same time. Still others have separate administration needs for different user groups, such as in-house staff and third-party contractors. The new CLIQ® Web Manager makes managing all these—and more—as easy as possible.
CLIQ® from ASSA ABLOY is a security locking system with high-end microelectronics powering programmable keys and cylinders. The system offers a variety of combinations of mechanical and electronic systems to match different security and access needs. Available on the global market place, it provides flexible access and key management solutions for all kinds of locking applications, especially for critical infrastructure with a wide geographical spread of properties.
It is a wire-free system, and each key can be programmed and updated individually to allow access to specific areas at specific times and dates, accommodating constantly changing access requirements and ensuring maximum flexibility. Power is provided by a battery inside the programmable CLIQ® key.
The new CLIQ® Web Manager software is built to serve a wide range of workflows. It allows administrators to create individual schedules for users, doors or audit trails. The revalidation function eliminates the risks of lost or stolen keys: a CLIQ® system can be set to require key revalidation when required, making it safe and easy to issue time-limited access to contractors or visitors.
In addition, with different user roles, work can be divided between security administration staff. For example, one user role can be defined as “handing out keys at reception”, while another user can be made responsible for changing access rights on cylinders in the field. The CLIQ® Remote Programming Device is invaluable in assisting companies to manage these often complex workflows.
Administrators operate the CLIQ® Web Manager over an Intranet or the Internet, using a standard web browser. No software installation is required, which allows for territorial independence and reduces project IT costs.
The CLIQ® Web Manager will benefit large companies with complex CLIQ® installations, in particular. Multinationals with multiple administrators for different territories or organizational units can grant all of them simultaneous system access, for example. Granting tailored access to local staff with local knowledge and local responsibilities is straightforward. The software is also available in several languages, ideal for multinationals with a multilingual staff roster.
For easy management, ASSA ABLOY offers software as a service hosting, or network-compatible client/server design. And ASSA ABLOY customer service is available around the clock, every day of the year.
