How We Do It

Program Development

Request a Brochure

Our Programs developed for Clients in the Government marketplace incorporate proven Key Control cornerstones to ensure ongoing system stability, consistency, and cost savings.

By integrating the four fundamental components of Restricted and Individually Serialized Keys, a simple, cost-effective Rekey Avenue, the only web-accessible Key Tracking Software platform available, and unparalleled support dedicated to Program Administration, each Program is uniquely suited to solve your specific keyed access needs.

We begin with providing restricted, serialized keys that enhance your key holder’s accountability by improving their ownership of a specific identifiable key. Then, when a key is lost or stolen, the rekeyable lock cylinders enable immediate rekeying onsite. With a simple “single key turn” of a specialized “step change” key and issuance of new keys, your location is secured. Next, we manage all of your Key Control information in the only patented, web-based software platform, allowing you the flexibility to access and manage information at any time. And finally, it’s our commitment to consistent administration practices and data sharing that lets you manage your Key Control audit history creating visibility to who has access to which areas in ‘real time’, while re-enforcing consistent standards for each key holder’s compliance. It is our Program’s data management capability and information sharing that modernizes the overall effectiveness of your Key Control program solution.


"We needed to improve the safety in our properties, reduce operating expenses, and increase Maintenance Department personnel productivity. We met all three objectives. Working with Tony was a pleasure. He professionally followed-up to keep projects moving forward. He explored alternate solutions helping to overcome temporarily truncated projects. Our Maintenance Department personnel are very satisfied working with Tony and his colleagues at InstaKey. Based on his past performance, we are moving forward with several new projects. Engaging Tony to help you with implementing a restricted keyway system will be worth your time."
