ALOA New Product Showcase

Congratulations to Keys Inc. for capturing first place in the ALOA New Product Showcase, held at the 2022 ALOA Security Expo July 29-30 in Las Vegas. The award was given based on a vote of ALOA members.

Keys Inc.’s new app is designed to give customers instant access to qualified locksmiths and emergency roadside service providers. Locksmiths are invited to enroll and will benefit from Keys Inc.’s targeted marketing campaigns. There are no monthly charges or subscriptions. Locksmiths set their service price and Keys Inc. collects secured credit card payments and then sends ACH payments to the locksmiths daily.

Rounding out the New Product Showcase were 10 additional products:

(Locksmith Ledger will feature an installation of this product in an upcoming issue.)
