How Does the System Work?

The cabinets or key lock boxes for car dealers have three simple steps.

First, users identify themselves via personal tag, username and password, or biometric identification (swiping your finger). Select “take out” on the touchscreen.

A list will appear on the touchscreen of stored keys. Users can only access keys that they have been previously authorized for. He or she will select the desired key, which will cause the drawer which contains it to flash and open. Inside the drawer, the specific bin that contains the select key will pop open. All other drawers and bins stay closed and locked. The user then simply tags the key with an RFID tracker and closes the drawer.managing tracking automotive dealership keys

The key will now be registered in that user’s name. To return, the user presses “return” on the touchscreen, tags the key with RFID, places the key back inside its compartment, and closes the drawer.

Keytag asset tracking technology allows time limits to be set for each asset that will alert system managers and the key holder if a key is not returned on time. Real-time information can also be given for each vehicle key.

Users (the car owner or car dealer) can also record what they have used the key for (for example, to take a car in for repairs) or any relevant information about the car (ex: mileage). The car dealership key system allows users to know who took which key, when it was taken, and for what purpose, so keys are always trackable without the need for manual logs.

There are multiple configurations of cabinets available, and the drawers and bins are modular so they can be reconfigured according to your needs.

“I just want to take a minute to let you know how good of a job your install crew did yesterday. They were quick, fast, courteous, and very consensus during the installation. They were awesome, to say the least. Being in the service business ourselves, we know that you can never hear the words “Good Job” often enough. Please pass this along to your crew.”

“Thanks for getting our Compact Pallet Rack system completed on time with little disruptions to our operation. Jim did a great job of listening to understand our needs and was able to design a system that works well for us. Kerry and the installation group were great. They were well organized and left the area very clean every day and at the end of the project.”


“We are coming up on a year since we installed the file system here at Bill Heard Chevrolet, and we continue to be more than happy with the outcome. The barcode tracking software system tracks the documents for us and is easy to maintain and use. There is something to be said about keeping things simple. We really like the way it interfaces with our software and populates fields for us automatically on a daily basis. Your guidance in the project was the best deal of all though. Your help in the setup and advice on what would work and what might not work saved us a lot of time and money. Again, thanks so much for your help and count on us as another satisfied customer.”
