The Handelshof Group operates 16 Cash&Carry markets for gastronomy, the hotel industry and trade. Handelshof has been using a time recording and access control solution from PCS since 2002. In recent years, regulations have become stricter, in particular those governing hygiene.
Respect the requirements concerning production and logistics.
Stringent requirements have to be met in meat production and delivery logistics. Employees must pass through a hygiene lock to reach their workplace. They also must keep to prescribed paths on the premises.
Comply with EU regulations.
Access to the meat and sausage production areas is only permitted for staff working in that department or for management. Handelshof was able to comply with the EU regulations by means of a PCS access control system. The systems prevents any unauthorized personnel from accessing the meat production facilities.
Flexible concept to meet the requirements.
PCS’s flexible terminal and access reader concept was particularly convincing. The PCS access control solution made it possible to meet the latest requirements of the EU Hygiene Directive for food production.
Old and new terminal generations in concurrent use.
The PCS terminals have proved to be very reliable and easy to maintain over a long period of time: older and newer generations of INTUS terminals have been in continuous use for almost ten years now.
