  • Getting Yourself Organised When Using Secure Key Cabinets

    Running an office is not easy, but if you are part of administration responsible for tasks, proper management and organisation goes a long way in ensuring that things do not go wrong, or missing. Secure key cabinets are the perfect solution for your key management requirement, whether you opt for a wall mounted option, or a filing cabinet addition, you need to be on top of things to ensure that they are utilised to the maximum potential and your administration requirements and needs are met.

    The first step in making sure that your keys are stored securely is to acquire or purchase a key cabinet with the right tools. That is with hooks for hanging the keys, a numbering system or slots to add them and preferably some form of expansion capability in case you feel there will be a requirement for it in the future. Making sure that they are secure comes with the locking mechanism, and these can be anything from a key entry to a key-less entry.

    Depending on your requirement and the number of personnel that are responsible for it, you will have to make this decision based on that criteria. Based on the type of office you run, that is, real estate, vehicle yards, government office,apartment complex, and so forth, the need for secure key cabinets may differ. However, one thing remains, and that is, you need to figure out an easy way to get to your keys.

    Therefore, start numbering the keys that you have in hand by using stamped, printed, or blank key tags and attaching the relevant key to the corresponding key tag. You can then use either printed or blank perforated sheets to number the hooks in your secure key cabinet up to the number you have used while numbering the key tags. Once that is done, one stage of key management process is complete.

    The next step would be to ensure that when you need to find a key quickly, you have all the information readily available and this is done via the use of index cards, books, or logs. These can be numbered alphabetically or numerically depending on your preference and requirement. This will help you find your keys easier, and save time. Furthermore, you could also put to use signature strips so that the responsible person can quickly find out why a key is missing from the secure key cabinet, and to know the person accountable for dispatching the key.

    You can organise your key cabinet better with these ways. Make sure to also purchase the right accessories or ensure that the accessories come in the package when you purchase a lockable key cabinet.

  • Why is Key Control and Security Important?

    This may seem like a simple question enough to answer, but there are still a lot of business owners who don’t understand the importance of establishing a secure key management solution. While staying organised to save time locating your keys is an important  part of it, keeping your keys safe in a lockable key cabinet can also help save you money! Keep reading this Telkee blog post to find out how.

    Reduced chances of loss and theft

    Whether you’re running a car rental business or in the real estate management industry, keeping your keys secure plays a critical role in saving money wasted on replacing lost keys and reducing theft of your valuable possessions.

    Use premium quality key racks and lockable key storage cabinets that are upgraded with locking mechanisms that reflect your business need. For instance, a car sales organisation will find it helpful to use a vehicle key cabinet that has larger hooks for key bunches. Upgrading the cabinet to include a slam lock door along with a mechanical keypad locking mechanism and a manager override lock will allow sales team members keyless entry at any time during the day, while a manager will be able to secure the cabinet at night to ensure no one has access to it.

    Lower Insurance Costs

    Lockable key cabinets will help you reduce your insurance costs in the long run, by reducing the risk of losing your valuable keys or having them stolen.

    Especially when it comes to houses, someone you thought was a potential customer can take the car keys and come back to steal the vehicle at any time. This is extremely convenient since most vehicles have electronic door locks. With this in mind, it’s very important to use a durable key safe which should be placed in a location that’s not easily accessible to customers or other non-employees that are at your business.

  • Professional Tips for Real Estate/Property Management

    When you work with several clients or projects, there will come a time that you will start to feel overwhelmed and often feel worn down. In order to avoid such situations, we have with us a few professional tips for you. Real estate and/or property management agents who juggle many items on their task lists, often running between properties may find the following tips extremely useful in terms of keeping up with different turn of events and more.

    Setting Expectation Levels

    When working with clients, it is important to let them know what they are getting from you in terms of service and what they should expect. Having processes for everything from returning missed calls and replying to emails within a certain time frame, to mapping out a route when showing various properties to clients is always something and can really impress.

    Delegation Is Everything

    When you are feeling overwhelmed, heed the warning signs and delegate non-critical work items or less meaningful tasks to your staff who are able to handle it. By sharing and communicating with your team members, you are able to adjust to divide and conquer. Often a life-size calendar in your office would be ideal to visually represent the tasks and pending items.


    By figuring out your daily tasks and setting times and durations for each, you are able to better prepare yourself. Time management greatly helps in achieving your goals. However, do time-block some time for a walk to unwind during the workday to reduce stress levels.

    Prewriting Marketing Content

    When you have content to be used in advertisements, blogs and more, sometimes taking a couple of hours from the weekend to work on these is a great idea so that they aren’t rushed. Planning your topics and content pieces as well as establishing a marketing timeframe inclusive of social media  will be quite valuable when you need to delegate the tasks and have your staff run with it (as all the information will be included as instructions/notes).

    Retain Consistency

    Make sure you keep at the above mentioned so that your standards remain the same, whether it’s with dealing with clients or your staff.  Add these to your daily/weekly for maximum results.

    With these tips, you can manage yourself in a way that offers consistent and quality work. TelKee Lockable Cabinets offers secure lockable cabinets and other key management accessories that offer great value to real estate agencies.

  • Helpful Tips for Organising Your Storage Cabinets

    Keeping your storage cabinets organised is an extremely important part of ensuring your workplace runs smoothly. Taking the time to purchase cabinetry that’s suitable for your business will ensure minimum time wasted searching for things, which inturn makes office processes that much more efficient and productive. We understand that getting paperwork and loose office supplies arranged can get downright messy sometimes; here are some simple, but useful tips to keep your storage key cabinets and filing cabinet solutions in tiptop shape!

    Organising Key Cabinets

    Ideal for decluttering large amounts of keys, key cabinets are popularly used in a variety of different occupations from real estate agents to vehicle hiring firms. From small key management solutions for a single emergency key box to larger options for over 400 keys, you will ideally need secure key cabinets to maintain authorised access to restricted areas, especially  if the key cabinet is located in a public area.

    Bring some order to your lockable key cabinets by using placeholders with a numbering system. - a time tested practice that’s easily implemented and promises good results. Use a permanent ink stamp to number each key tag, number the placeholders clearly in the secure key cabinet as well and place each key on its corresponding hook for easy retrieval.

    Include placeholders for absent keys with a descriptive tag (placed on small stickers) such as “Key Loaned” or any other innovative tags to make organisation of your storage key cabinets easier.

    Organising Filing Cabinet Solutions

    The first step to arranging your paperwork is to think about how you would search for something and then arrange your files in that logical order. While. it may seem obvious enough, labeling everything is a  critical part of organising your filing cabinet and should include file folders, cabinets and boxes for quick retrieval.

    Throwing out trash and unnecessary paperwork is an important segment of maintaining your filing cabinets. Set up an easy, weekly process  to weed through new paperwork and route each document to their correct filing location. Ensure you don’t misplace anything by keeping all paperwork that reaches your desk prior to filing  in one place, such as your desktop inbox.

    If you require a key management system, but  prefer not to use separate key cabinets,  key storage panels fit neatly inside any existing file cabinet and are just as effective. Follow the same  good practices used to organise storage key cabinets for quick and easy retrieval.

  • Key Cabinets and Key Tags

    Let's face it; being assigned a bunch of keys can be a real hassle, especially if you have to carry them around in a big old key ring with so many dangling keys attached to it. You might spend ages trying to figure out which key opens which door and it can be a real headache. That's a thing of the past with key cabinets and key tags that allows you to only carry one master key to the key cabinet itself on your person. All those other keys you are responsible are happily stored on hooks according to their number which corresponds to that of the key tag, and is catalogued in the index cards or book.

    TelKee Lockable Key Cabinets Small Key Management Solutions Australia Telkee 530 Model 175 Key Hooks Beige

    Key tags, and other accessories such as signature strips, index cards and so forth makes organisation simpler and more straight forward. However, if you already have a requirement for the likes of key tags, with Telkee Lockable Cabinets, there are some special key tags that come with the cabinets being sold. These include the likes of one plastic key tag bag that has been sequentially numbered from the starting point of one (1) to the number of hooks available in that particular model of lockable key cabinets which is available in either blue or red. That is, if you take the likes of the model T530/175, the purchase of the lockable cabinet comes with tags that have been numbered from #1 to #175. Apart from the likes of such standard offers, there are also yellow and green printed key tags up for grabs if you so require them. Custom numbering is definitely doable, with our services being offered to print key tags from numbers #0001 all the way up to #9999. That is a lot of keys! However, when it comes to special hand stamped key tags, there is a surcharge involved as the process is different, and for it a $0.10 per tag is attached for such a service.

    Apart from the key tags, you might also want your cabinets to match the aesthetic of your office or surrounding where you will place your wall mount or free standing lockable key cabinet. The Telkee Lockable Cabinets come in two distinct colours, being either beige or gray. These two colours have their own advantages, where beige is best for offices and a standard colour, whilst the gray (which is actually Hammertone Gray), hides the likes of scratches better if it comes to that. However, do keep in mind that all the cabinets have been painted with a baked enamel scratch resistant paint, and the 347/35 model is the only one available in gray, while the others offer you the choice of picking from either colour.

    Peruse the various models, products and accessories made available to you when you are looking to purchase lockable cabinets from the online catalogue. You will not be disappointed.
