InstaKey Security Systems has recently completed a new implementation with The Fresh Market, a leading specialty grocer, on their new lock and key management program designed to add process and structure to their mechanical key system, while lowering associated costs.
In less than three months, The Fresh Market converted 160+ stores nationwide, to the proprietary InstaKey Key Management System. All locations received new, small-format interchangeable lock hardware and Store Management uses InstaKey’s SecurityRecords.com® to issue keys and manage their key holder population.
“Every time we work with InstaKey, their commitment to us, the project and to their personal/corporate integrity shines through,” explains Joe Oliveira, CFI, director of asset protection at The Fresh Market. “The InstaKey program is a huge success. The program has become part of our culture and it is helping us better protect our team members, guests, product, cash and data. We just couldn’t do it without InstaKey’s help and support. To top it off, converting an entire company in under three months has to be a world record!”
This new partnership with InstaKey also makes future lock changes easy. When keys are lost or unaccounted for, using user-rekeyable locks eliminates the need make an expensive locksmith callout when a step change key is the only tool required to complete a rekey. This allows for immediate lock changes to keep stores and areas within stores secure.
The software and service behind the lock hardware makes a significant difference in managing the key system, allowing The Fresh Market to easily take control of managing the system and reducing costs. This is accomplished through restricted keys that cannot be duplicated, cloud-based software that maintains and tracks the system’s integrity and a dedicated team of subject matter experts at InstaKey that help administrate the key system management with The Fresh Market team.
