Deister, Key Tracer Announce proxSafe Focus on Casino & Hotel Key Management Applications
Deister Electronics USA Inc. and KeyTracer Systems of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, have formed a business partnership agreement that will cover key management system needs in hotels, casinos, and other select markets in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Deister’s proxSafe key management and asset control products help clients to manage possession of keys and other valuables. The casino and hotel market is one in which the company has been focused for some time, having recently announced a new version of their Commander software, which was specifically geared for that market.
KeyTracer Systems, a division of CTS Inc., is a specialist in key management applications. Since the early 1990s, the company and its affiliates have installed and continue to support hundreds of key management systems throughout North America. It has earned considerable respect for its key management expertise, particularly in the casino/gaming, hospitality, educational, correctional and retail industries.
“KeyTracer understands electronic key management and is very client-focused,” according to Glenn Burger, director of proxSafe sales at Deister. “The company’s knowledge of the needs/wants of the casino and hotel industry made it the natural choice for selling, installing and supporting proxSafe and its RFID-based key control technology.”
“Deister’s proxSafe has two distinct advantages in the market,” said Mike French of KeyTracer. “One, they have steered their Commander software development to specifically address the needs of casino and gaming clients, and the regulatory environment. Two, the RFID technology means no maintenance of the keyTags (key fobs), which means less downtime and lower cost over time for the client.”
