When you choose Shergroup Security as your integrated security provider, you are choosing a company with heritage and integrity.

Businesses are focusing on two things as they adjust their reopening plans: safeguarding their employees’ health and safety and discovering operational efficiencies that can save money.

Historically, these two goals have existed separately and were often overseen by various departments inside a company. The COVID-19 epidemic, on the other hand, has forced a confluence of corporate goals, with an unusual industry emerging as a potential solution for both.

For years, the access technologies industry has aided businesses in ensuring that their facilities operate at peak efficiency, and new developments in the field are allowing for even more economic benefits.

Using Smart Technology to Reduce Costs

The pandemic’s economic impact has been varied for each business, and many are outperforming predictions. Leaders were able to pivot and develop their firms in 2021 because too smart expenditures such as enhanced digitization and rigorous cost control. Companies will need to find even more efficiencies in order to maintain growth in 2022 and beyond.

Many companies are only now beginning to see the cost-cutting potential of their existing access and security infrastructure.

Take, for example, automatic outside doors. The typical cost of keeping a wide door open at a facility, such as a retail store, is $17 per hour in energy consumption. This statistic is calculated by Stanley Access Technologies using the average kilowatt-hour per square foot.

For companies with thousands of locations and tens of thousands of doors, this might amount to millions of dollars in annual expenses. If a door malfunctions, it’s vital for a company to have dependable solutions in place to rapidly analyse and remedy the problem so that operations may resume, and costs are reduced.

This implies building access technologies that combine door hardware and smart software to create a predictive IoT solution for the industry. This technology can assist enterprises in proactively resolving maintenance issues and reducing infrastructure expenditures.

Smart technology included in the door controller can collect performance data, allowing specialists to diagnose and resolve problems remotely – often even before the business is aware of a problem.

Apart from maintenance and sustainability improvements, this type of solution can assist organisations in staying in compliance with smoke, fire, and other standards.

Enhancing Health and Hygiene for Employees and Customers

The epidemic has raised public awareness of the dangers of virus transmission and highlighted opportunities for businesses to improve the health and safety of those who visit their premises. Eliminating unnecessary interaction with high-touch surfaces, such as doors, is one significant area of concentration. Researchers at the University of Arizona discovered that traces of a simulated virus deposited on doorknobs were picked up by 40% -60% of staff and visitors within two to four hours.

As a result, many organisations have switched from manual to touchless automatic doors to avoid making contact with door handles, bars, and plates.

Re-examining and restructuring facilities will be vital to organisations’ success as they return to physical workplaces, whether full-time or in a hybrid working style.

Access technology will be critical in assisting them in creating safer, healthier, and more efficient settings that will not only safeguard their employees but also deliver operational efficiencies and cost savings.


Security is at the forefront of today’s business environment. Commercial business spaces need to ensure the safety of their customers and employees along with their workspace. Access technology, remote security systems and other health and safety protection systems should be in place to keep everyone protected. Enhance your security in order to keep your business operation running smoothly and allow you to work in peace.
