Nexgen XT Helps A North Shores School District Reduce The Cost of Re-keying

Posted on Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Last summer, a K-12 school district in the North Shores area contacted Medeco because there was a concern over the lack of control with their current small format key system. According to administrators, keys were not distributed or monitored properly, often causing lost or never returned keys at the end of each school year. These issues forced the school to expend resources and money to re-key every summer.

Realizing the immediate need for a cost effective solution to gain control of the key system and reduce the cost of re-keying, the school decided to install 100 Nexgen XT small format interchangeable cores on every opening within the main facility. The ability to retrofit existing hardware and electronically re-key reduced the liability of lost keys or keys not being returned. Additionally, the school saw value in the audit trail capability to provide assurance on critical access openings such as sensitive records and testing areas.

The school was so impressed with Nexgen XT capabilities; they ordered additional cores to expand the system with plans to implement this solution district wide. Nexgen XT is just one example of how eCylinder solutions can benefit K-12 schools by addressing re-keying issues, loss and liability benefits, compliance assurance, and overall facility security.
