Introducing Safe Workspace by Kisi

By Bernhard Mehl
August 24, 2020

When speaking to our customers about the “new normal” in facilities around the world, one feeling is very prominent: They want to control their spaces remotely. For them, control starts with deciding who gets access to their premises, under what conditions they are granted access, and then how long they can stay.

The message is clear. A simple door security product is no longer enough, and every facility now needs a system which enables workplace functionality. Every building or workplace manager needs physical security data to keep their facilities safe.

That is why today we’re launching Safe Workspace. Safe Workspace is a product built on Kisi infrastructure for enhanced control and safety. We are uniquely positioned to launch this product as a physical security platform because of our high mobile app usage. On average, 95% of our customer’s workforce uses the Kisi mobile app, as they have to use it to unlock company doors.

Space Capacity Analytics from Kisi Safe Workspace

We are taking the leap from being a physical security provider to being a workplace tool and to help us get there, we’ve built out the functionality that we were missing.

Like any functionality in the Kisi dashboard, these features will run on Kisi’s API. This means other companies are also able to use the feature-set in the background to enable their services via the Kisi API. Partners like Envoy have already started using the Safe Workspace tool to provide more advanced workflows.

Some key features of Safe Workspace include:

Space Capacity: Limit the number of people coming to your space on a given day by applying capacity levels in your Kisi Dashboard.

Space Compliance: Ensure that employees and visitors comply with space requirements before they can enter by integrating mandatory surveys.

Space Alerts: Get notified when space usage is higher than permitted or when you are about to reach full capacity.
