S-Key wins ‘Material Handling Solution of the Year’ 

Freevolt’s biometric access control card crowned at Industrial Plant & Equipment Awards 

Freevolt Technologies is delighted to announce that our biometric access control card ‘S-Key’ has won the ‘Material Handling Solution of the Year’ in the Industrial Plant & Equipment Awards 2023. The Award recognises the innovative role that fingerprint-authenticated access control can play in ensuring the safe operation of industrial vehicles and machinery: S-Key can eliminate the risk of staff sharing cards, causing health and safety issues as well as damage. 

Award for exceptional products used in the warehouse and logistics sector 

Industrial Plant & Equipment magazine introduced the ‘Material Handling Solution of the Year’ award to recognise exceptional products for use throughout the material handling process. Judges looked at the latest developments to solve pain points for site managers, security officers and logistics operations across a range of industries. 

Awarding top ranking to S-Key, the judges recognised that biometric authentication not only provides secure access control for buildings, but can also be used to ensure plant and machinery are operated only by qualified and authorised personnel. 

“S-Key’s battery-less biometric access card is a great innovation,” said the judges. “It seems it would be easy to implement in controlling access to vehicles and/or machinery operations. Congratulations, S-Key!”  

Freevolt’s biometric authentication card ensures robust access control by requiring positive identification every time, preventing the sharing or borrowing of RFID or access cards. In the warehouse and logistics sector, S-Key cards are an effective way to ensure that only properly skilled and licensed users can gain access to vehicles and machinery, reducing the risks of accidents and uninsured damage. 

Excellence in UK industry 

The Awards celebrate excellence across the broad spectrum of UK industry. During the award ceremony it was clear that the judges valued the wide range of applications for Freevolt’s innovative solution, including physical and logical access control.  

Gonzalo de Gisbert, Head of Product and Business Development at Freevolt Technologies, is delighted to accept the award: 

“I am proud to see S-Key recognised in the Industrial Plant & Equipment Awards 2023 celebrating excellence across the broad spectrum of UK industry. Our fingerprint access control card has a wide range of applications, and it is great to see that the judges see it as an exceptional product in the warehouse and logistics sector.”
