Shoe Zone Size Up Tensor’s Access Control System
The shoe-selling giants, Shoe Zone, who have over 400 stores across the UK, have called upon Tensor for an access control system. The high street favourite first installed a Tensor access control system at their headquarters in Leicester in 2005, and have updated their system throughout the years with the latest upgrade being as recent as 2021.
Property Manager, Steve Chater, was part of the project’s team at Shoe Zone in 2005 when the access control systems were installed. When speaking to Tensor recently, he said, “for access control, it ticks all the boxes: setting the levels, mandating how and when people can come into the building, it solved all our issues.”
Shoe Zone’s head office consists of the main warehouse, distribution centre and office space. All of these had the access control system installed. Steve added, “The whole system governs everyone getting in and out of the building and access to only certain areas, which was exactly what we needed.”
Warehouse and office space access control specialists
Warehouses with valuable stock as well as offices with confidential information are two of the biggest beneficiaries of an access control system. It allows authorised members of staff to have access to certain areas that they need while denying them access to unauthorised areas and rooms within the building.
Shoe Zone employs around 4,000 people throughout the UK, with 300 of those employees working at the head office in Leicester. An access control system is a perfect solution to managing a workforce of this size while at the same time maintaining a safe and secure workplace.
Advanced access control systems
At Access Control UK, we offer state-of-the-art access control systems which aid with workforce management.
Our door controllers and smart card readers give you total control over who is granted access through any controlled point at any time of any day, allowing you to control locks, internal and external doors. Our smart card readers are contactless, meaning they are Covid-friendly, giving your members of staff complete confidence in their safety while at work.
Biometric access control is also available. Biometric access control systems, commonly known as fingerprint access control, give employees complete reassurance that only authorised people are able to access sensitive areas of the warehouse/office or place of work. This method of access control gives employers reassurance because it means employees cannot lose or misplace their fingerprints, whereas this is a possibility with smartcards and key fobs – however, for peace of mind, all lost smartcards and key fobs are immediately replaceable.
Unrivalled access control software
Our software is equally as impressive as our hardware. Known as WinAC.NET, the computerised software allows users to have quick and easy access on their computer or mobile phone to information on building alarms, door locks, door release buttons, CCTV cameras and more.
