The challenge:
Tracking the whereabouts of all the keys & employees were difficult

As EVONIK’s various facilities are extremely large, they have to be divided into sections or different zones. However, a larger facility also means more staff and more keys for different applications. Effective management of keys and valuables is therefore more difficult.

Initially, key management was very complicated for several years, time-consuming and error-prone, as it was impossible to know who was using certain keys and when. In terms of resources, particularly working time, the management of keys, valuables and employees’ personal belongings caused problems.


Our solution:
Key cabinet with or without lockers as per requirement

EVONIK uses electronic key cabinets from ecos systems at all its sites.

These have been used for over 10 years to manage keys, valuables, firefighters’ tools and personal items.


The result:
Different sections of facility being centrally managed

Tous les collaborateurs autorisés des différents secteurs de l’entreprise EVONIK utilisent les solutions électroniques d’ecos systems pour la gestion des clés et des objets. Grâce aux armoires à clés et aux systèmes spécialisés, le quotidien professionnel est plus simple et surtout plus sûr.

Le gain de temps, la sécurité, la contrôlabilité, la transparence et l’ordre contribuent à l’utilisation efficace des ressources, ce qui permet de se consacrer aux tâches importantes.
