The exterior styling has been considered as well; ergonomically shaped keytags, soft blue LED key-locator lighting and other design elements combine to create a feeling of hi-tech sophistication that plays well with current front desk design aesthetics.
“I’ve been using traditional key tracking systems for many years, but with KeyLink it seems pretty clear that the next generation has finally arrived,” says Larry Coulson, manager of the White River Plaza complex in Santa Fe, and a new KeyLink user.
The KeyLink story began seven years ago when BuildingLink’s CEO Jerry Kestenbaum found himself fielding repeated requests from its real estate technology customers to design a better key storage and tracking system.
“Our clients were frustrated by a decade or more of having only one or two vendors to choose from, and by having to spend an awful lot of today’s dollars on yesterday’s technology” says Kestenbaum. “So after several years of hearing this, we decided to accept the challenge: to design and build from scratch an entirely new and better system that would fully utilize best-of-breed technology. But first, we invested a huge amount of time and energy finding out from our clients - and we have more than a thousand buildings - what their ideal, perfect system might be.”
Kim Pettitt manages The Cosmopolitan in Houston and was one of the first people to install Keylink. “The Board and the residents all share in my enthusiasm for this new system which adds organization, professionalism and peace of mind,” she says. “Keylink is another step in making The Cosmopolitan one of Houston's premier properties.”
