Reservation module for key management and object management
Organize the time-effective use of your resources
The reservation module of ecos systems is mainly used for the administration of vehicle´s keys, conference and seminar rooms and the output of electronic devices.
In this way, the time-bound issue of keys and tools or the use of premises for different teams can be reliably controlled. In the event of a timeout, alarm messages ensure that the control center or users will bei informed immediately.
With our key management systems, you can activate any key of your choice for the reservation module. When reserving drawers and lockers, content control is made possible by attaching RFID stickers to the corresponding objects.
- Once the reservation module has been activated, keys or compartments are made available for reservation.
- Reservations can be created by authorized persons for themselves, for other users, but also for external guests by autogenerating a PIN.
- Reservation details can be sent automatically per e-mail to the concerned persons.

Choosing your timeframe and driving parameters enables you to pre-reserve a car of a specific car group. Should the chosen car not be available at the selected time, the system will automatically propose an alternative.
We also offer the possibility to group terminals, allowing you to return a car to multiple locations.We also offer the possibility to group terminals, allowing you to return a car to multiple locations.
An integrated navigation program gives you directions and distance to the nearest ecos terminal. Also calculated is the time of arrival which further increases user acceptance and ensures optimal utilisation of the carpool.
Check-out at the terminal
Validation of the user identity is done using company internal media (for example RFID-cards). Guests or external users are given an Validation of the user identity is done using company internal media (for example RFID-cards). Guests or external users are given an automated one-time PIN via E-mail.
For added convenience, the actual parking space and potential damages on the car are indicated at the time of key retrieval. The requirement to agree to specific user terms and conditions prior to key retrieval may also be selected.

Thanks to groups of users, objects and systems, it is possible to easily transmit specific properties and functions. This simplifies the organisation of your carpool.
All cars within a specific group can be reserved. In the example to the left, the user can only choose one car at a time. All cars within a specific group can be reserved.

By establishing a hierarchy of car groups, it is possible to assign cars of other groups (Upgrade) in case of unavailability, as is common practice at car rental branches.
You are free to define criteria’s. You might for example decide to determine that a vehicle of a smaller category is attributed or a car of a specifically defined “replacement” group. A change of category may also be coupled with an action such as sending an email to the carpool manager.
System groups are especially useful to manage System groups are especially useful to manage carpools over numerous locations.
To do this, it is necessary to activate the dynamicmanagement function, as the objects are no longer bound to one specific terminal.
The GPS coordinates of the terminals are easily identified by ecos webman using the individual addresses.
For each object, you may choose which underlying functions to select. For each object, you may choose which underlying functions to select. Therefore, we enable you to select vehicle or building keys with different functionalities within the master file data. The following relates to the different functionalities for car keys only.
By selecting the carpool options, all carpool relevant functions will be specific to the chosen object.By selecting the carpool options, all carpool relevant functions will be specific to the chosen object.
Dialog windows for data input will automatically pop-up on the terminal. It is also possible to display external data such as inspection intervals.
Dialog windows or error messages can be easily Dialog windows or error messages can be easily defined and may be coupled with special functions such as the sending of emails or disabling.
Numerous standard reports are available. On Numerous standard reports are available. On request, client specific reports can be generated.
Missing data or corrections can easily be amended manually. However, this requires administrator rights. Furthermore, all changes will be saved according to legal requirements.
Driving license control

Driving license categories and license validates will be copied to the software. Driving license categories and license validates will be copied to the software.
Employees without necessary authorization for a specific vehicle group will automatically be denied access.
It is also possible to create unique categories for company specific types of cars such as transporters for hazardous waste with regular inspections.
For increased driver security, it is possible to connect an alcohol control tester to any ecos system.
The picture shows our ecos premium system with 20 locked slots. This system only releases keys in case of anegative alcohol test.
