Singapore, February 2018.
Keyless smart locks have become a trendy topic worldwide as they bring convenience and cost savings for users. Smartphone applications are replacing mechanical locks in many usage aspects. While there are many choices in the market currently for consumers, the same cannot be said for industrial-grade smart locks and system for businesses.
For many companies especially in telecommunications, employees who needs access to remote sites/assets must get the necessary permissions, before collecting the keys from a general office or storage center. Collecting the keys on a normal day with hectic traffic usually takes 5 to 6 hours, to and fro. The overall process happens at least once a week for numerous sites. Site managers are troubled as they seldom know exactly what is going on with the companies’ assets.
As the leader in the Tower Provider market in Indonesia, Protelindo will be using Willowmore’s smart locks and access management control system (ACMS) to improve asset security and workflow efficiency. The ACMS system comprises a backend workflow platform uniquely developed and secured by ST Engineering. Protelindo’s engineers can now request for site access permission via the app or be allocated jobs by site managers allowing them to proceed directly to service or restore cell sites. This in turn saves hours of time and gallons of fuel wasted in Jakarta’s traffic just for keys collection. This will greatly enhance Protelindo’s reputation as the market leader as this will mean consumers will experience lower downtime due to faster restoration in communication sites. Protelindo will also have access to Willowmore’s data analytics system that will help improve field service efficiency and costs.
