We Know Dealerships.
eziKey has extensive experience in the operation of Automotive Dealerships, and know the operational stresses that high-volume vehicle movement cause on a day-to-day basis.
From our extensive experience, we know that a modern-day dealership's management team focus on these three key areas:
Through our knowledge of the industry and these 3 key factors, eziKey has carefully tailored a business solution for Automotive Dealerships.
KNOW WHERE EVERY VEHICLE IS
When was the last time you spent less than 5 minutes allocating a speeding fine? Whilst an app to track vehicles is a good idea, it cannot guarantee 100% accuracy.
eziKey only allows authorised users to access vehicle keys via their own unique user account. As seen in the video below, every key that is taken to drive a car has to be booked out to an individual.
SCALABLE TO YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS
eziKey is designed to work in multiple locations around your Dealership. Once you install eziKey in your Showroom, your Workshop, your Storage facility and anywhere else where cars need securing, our system communicates to each location and updates a vehicle's movement/new location when a key is returned to a Vault.
Our Vaults are designed to be modular, and have the ability to meet any business need.
The main reason for having a Key Safe in any dealership - is to ensure the keys to all vehicles in your possession are secured.
eziKey's 71 Key Vault takes key security to the next level by providing industry leading Vault design, to ensure keys are secure from unauthorised users. This was confirmed by Allianz Insurance after receiving nation-wide accreditation as an Approved Key Safe. If you insure your vehicle inventory through Allianz, you will have their full support and you may also be eligible for a reduction in your insurance premium.
Every installation includes an eziKey Management Tool feature. This is a software program that is installed onto the computers of your Dealership Management Team, Stock Controllers, etc, and allows them to monitor key movements, vehicle usage and manage your vehicle inventory.
STOP SPENDING MONEY ON REPLACING KEYS
Losing keys is a very expensive exercise.
Every key transaction within the eziKey system is recorded, and therefore able to be viewed if a key goes missing. You can now stop wasting time running around the dealership looking for a key, checking security camera footage or quizzing your staff.
Wasting time is no longer an issue when trying to find a car key or the vehicle itself. Any authorised user can search for a vehicle via our system, and immediately be informed of the key and vehicle location.
If a vehicle is in a different location or Vault, eziKey notifies the user so they don't have to physically search for the key.
BUILT-IN DRIVERS LICENCE SCANNER & LOAN AGREEMENT FORMS
The eziKey system has an integrated Drivers Licence scanner, which has the ability to store a Drivers Licence against each vehicle movement.
Each Staff Member has a profile in the eziKey system which includes a scanned copy of their Drivers Licence. This ensures that each member of staff can drive a vehicle without the need to scan their Licence. If a Staff Member receives a driving infringement, all licence details are at your disposal to allocate the infringement to them, improving your business efficiency in multiple departments.
Test driving a customer is now a streamlined process. The authorised user can simply place the customer's Licence in our scanner and the system will generate a full Loan Agreement Form with licence shown. Loan Agreement Forms are totally customisable to ensure it reflects your brand and covers your unique conditions of loaning a vehicle.
A bit more about eziKey
STATE OF THE ART TECH
eziKey utilises state of the art technology such as biometric fingerprint readers, HD license scanning cameras, touchscreen monitors as well as an intelligent key board inside the vault. This is all engineered and uniquely designed by eziKey to combine innovative technology and security together.
eziKey provides businesses with live reporting on asset location, individual user ID and timeline of key allocation via the eziKey Management Tool. If your assets are mobile, eziKey will change the location of the asset if the key is recorded in a different vault. This ensures accurate reporting on all stock allocation and reconciliation.
REDUCE ADMINISTRATION COSTS & INCREASE STAFF EFFICIENCY
Reduce the costs associated with your administrative process of asset management by having visibility of your assets live. On top of this, all staff members that use eziKey will save time in finding keys and recording their key movements.
SAVE MONEY ON LOST KEY REPLACEMENT
Usage of eziKey offers an audit trail for all users of company assets. Anyone with access to a key is recorded through their usage of eziKey, which is then logged and available for reviewing. Keys can then be found using the audit trail, minimising risk of replacing costly keys.
TRACK KEY USERS
The eziKey system provides instant reporting on key movement and gives clear visibility on who is using the keys. In the instance of vehicle movement, this is ideal for identifying custodians of vehicles for allocation of infringements or insurance purposes. All drivers licence information is stored in the eziKey system for future reference.
FULL REPORTING & ACCOUNTABILITY
Every key movement within your eziKey vault is tracked for reporting and accountability purposes. The system records usage via the authorised user’s fingerprint or PIN code. Members of your Management Team or other relevant team members can then use eziKey’s Management Tool to report on asset movement or usage as required.
NATIONWIDE SERVICE & SUPPORT
eziKey is available for support to our customers, either remotely via internet or phone call, or even on-site. Our eziKey team members who provide support are also the same team members who build the eziKey product. They are knowledgable and often will be the same point of contact throughout your eziKey journey. All service vehicles carry an extensive inventory of spare parts to facilitate the most cost effective means of repair.
HARDWARE & SOFTWARE SPECIFICATIONS
The eziKey hardware is made up of “Control Units” and “Key Vaults”. Each Vault has the capacity of 71 keys, and 1 Control Unit can connect to multiple Vaults at a time. LAN serial server devices are not required for eziKey to operate across a multitude of locations, as all systems are Ethernet / IP based which enables us to integrate them into any operating system without the need for additional servers.
