Convention Centre Dublin chooses Locken too

11/04/2015 - 00:00

Following in the footsteps of Paris expo Porte de Versailles, Marseille Chanot, Torre Picasso Madrid and NEC Birmingham, Convention Centre Dublin has chosen Locken for management of its 350 access points.

"The Locken access control solution means we can offer our customers tailored access authorisation allowing them to access their own dedicated area in the time slot they have reserved," explains Philip Hartigan, head of security at Convention Centre Dublin. 

"We now use the Locken electronic key to handle 6,500 door openings every month. This system is an effective way of controlling and restricting access to the different areas. It means our security officers, who used to spend their time opening controlled access points, returning keys and checking the key register, can be reassigned to other duties."

Exhibition and conference centres have multiple access points, hundreds of employees and contractors, and thousands of visitors coming through their doors on a daily basis. That is why access management is such a big deal – security managers have the difficult task of improving the flow of day-to-day operations while increasing the level of security.

As Catherine Laug, Locken's marketing manager, puts it: "Our priority is to maximise productivity while helping to improve the security of people and property. It is essential to optimise the way controlled accesses are managed. Our solution, based on Cyberlock technology, can do this thanks to traceability, which provides vital information if a break-in occurs. We're really proud to offer a reliable access control solution to the events sector, which by its nature has to deal with risks from terrorism, vandalism and burglary. »
