SINGAPORE, April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The global COVID-19 outbreak has affected many governments, businesses and individuals. With well-considered and measured approaches to contain the virus, Singapore businesses have been proactive in using Willowmore’s technologies to minimise physical contacts for staff, contractors and customers.

In the current environment, having keys or tokens held at central offices that have to be physically collected and handed over by staff and then returned, poses high risk of surface contamination. Most businesses are adopting work-from-home measures, so managing physical keys and tokens is becoming even more problematic. Being able to issue virtual digital keys in a contactless manner is a vastly preferable solution.

In order to achieve safe distance and less contact points, Prosegur is using Willowmore Access Control system and Smartlocks to maintain efficiencies during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

"We know the frequency of access by our teams to critical assets. This enables us to plan for the teams required to support the end customer" – Jaemes Wong (Prosegur DG Operations / CAMS Manager) "There is no need for key collection, the digital keys are allocated remotely in users mobile phone to enable our teams to access sites – our partnership with Willowmore over the past few years demonstrates that they have an effective solution to enable us to become more efficient in Access Management. "

The ability to remotely grant and approve access requests then remotely monitor the access in genuinely real-time allows a security company like Prosegur to have an overall dashboard of what is going on in every client’s distributed infrastructure and trace all historic data. After trying out several available Smart lock solutions in the market; Prosegur has shared that "Willowmore Smart lock is truly a good solution; well-thought through software workflow and can withstand Singapore’s extreme outdoor weather conditions; with local support also being a key factor.

Critical infrastructure must continue, equipment and sites must be maintained.

Companies have to protect their critical infrastructure assets, conduct maintenance, and at the same time, protect their staff, contractors and customers. The time for digital virtual keys enables companies to improve the efficiency of access management. This is not a short-term event, where things will return to normal. Business will be compelled to implement long term processes to protect their people and critical assets.
