InstaKey Celebrates a 30 Year Business Anniversary
February 23, 2016 - For the past 30 years, InstaKey Security Systems has prided themselves on client-driven best practices to help meet the demand of a changing business landscape.
It began in 1986, when the business was formed from the search for a simpler alternative to rekeying a facility after hours. “There just had to be a better way. We knew the day the rekeyable lock technology was invented, that we had something powerful”, recalls Scott Serani, President and Co-Founder.
Early in the 1990’s, InstaKey Security Systems added additional product lines such as small format interchangeable cores (SFIC) and unique serialized keys to help meet the increased demand for simplicity and cost savings. Significant government contracts and client referrals helped raise awareness about this revolutionary program.
As the lock and key technology matured, InstaKey Security Systems didn’t just stop with the hardware, as they felt there was a better way to manage the information. In 2003, their integrated KeyControl® Program was released. This new program would link together the four Key Control cornerstones, setting them apart as a solution provider. Through restricted serialized keys, rekeyable lock cylinders, patented key management software, and a devotion to program administration, a total Program was born.
In 2006, the cloud-based management software platform, SecurityRecords.com®, was patented, making “real-time” key tracking and decentralized program administration a reality.
Through accessing KeyControl® Program information from anywhere, security management became much simpler to utilize and communicate.
In 2014, a KeyControl® Dashboard was next released into the SecurityRecords.com® platform allowing clients transparency and visibility into all of their Program’s requirements. Through a simplistic design on their homepage, visual charts identify exceptions leading to detailed reporting.
When asked what makes him most proud of his 30 year tenure, Scott Serani replied, “It’s the relationships with our clients. They are not just clients, but our partners and friends. We know they rely upon us and that we share the same level of commitment and dedication to their security and safety.”
Through developing and retaining talent, over 50% of current personnel are tenured with 10+ years. This combined industry knowledge and commitment to their clients provide the most simplistic and cost effective KeyControl® Program.
InstaKey Security Systems would like to take this opportunity to express its appreciation to all clients, distributors, vendors, and business partners for their continued support and commitment over the years. It’s the collective efforts of these amazing people that has made simple Key Control possibilities, a reality.
What’s next for InstaKey Security Systems? You’ll just have to wait and see!
