Securing Small Businesses with MAX CLIQ™ from ASSA /Other/ASSA/News/2013/maxCLIQ-(2).jpg ASSA, a part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of the ASSA ABLOY Group, believes its Max CLIQ™ electromechanical locking system, provides the answer for small businesses’ security needs. The Federation for Small Businesses (FSB) believes the average cost to a business is about £3,000 per burglary, and despite falling crime rates, this is still a cost smaller companies can ill-afford to pay. ASSA’s latest locking solution Max CLIQ™ has been specifically designed with smaller applications in mind. Combining advanced CLIQ™ technology with high quality ASSA dp cylinders, ASSA Max CLIQ™ is an accessible key control system that enables users to benefit from high security, electromechanical locking solutions, without the associated costs and complexity. As a small standalone system, ASSA Max CLIQ™ is suitable for use on residential property, shops and small commercial premises. The simple system requires no software and uses a programming key to activate the electromechanical cylinder and programme the user keys to allow or deny access. Management of staff turnover and the employment of temporary staff over busier times of the year is also a common issue for smaller businesses. The easy-to-programme ASSA Max CLIQ™ system helps to manage key control. For example, if a key holder were to leave employment without returning the user key, with the ASSA Max CLIQ™ system employers can simply deactivate and re-programme the remaining keys, denying access to the lost or misplaced key. Nojmol Islam, Product Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, explained: “Smaller businesses have often relied on manual systems, as access control solutions were developed with larger buildings and sizable organisations in mind. Max CLIQ™ provides a cost effective solution that can provide small business owners with the peace of mind needed during times of increased economic pressure.“Requiring no wiring or software installation, programming only takes a few minutes and is as straightforward as inserting the programming key into the cylinder. So the system can be fitted onto existing doors, requiring minimal disruption to the user.”ASSA Max CLIQ™ provides users with a cost effective yet customised security solution. Using the product’s serial number additional electronic keys and alternative electromechanical cylinders, such as padlocks, can be ordered and suited into the system. Sold in kit form and supplied to customers in an aesthetically pleasing and easy to display presentation box, ASSA customers can order ASSA Max CLIQ™ from ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions.
