SALEM, Va. (June 9, 2015) — Medeco® Security Locks, a high security product manufacturer and ASSA ABLOY Group company in Salem, Va., today announced immediate availability of the next version of Medeco® XT Web Manager, giving current owners access to new and improved functionality.

“We are constantly striving to make our XT eCylinder product line more functional and user-friendly,” said Gene Cronin, Medeco XT & Aperio Product Manager. “The Medeco XT Web Manager, a simple but powerful web-based access management interface, is probably one of our best kept secrets. It allows customers to manage their XT system in the cloud, saving time and money by not having to invest in expensive hardware and IT personnel. All the data can be hosted on Medeco secure servers. It doesn’t get any easier!”

The Medeco XT Web Manager contains enhancements driven by customer feedback. “This is part of Medeco’s commitment to give customers what they need,” added Cronin. “Our goal is to help them work more efficiently and help keep their business secure.” The new version of XT Web Manager is available immediately upon request for self-hosted customers (fees may apply). Medeco hosted customers will see the enhancements when they first log-on June 9. 

Some of the new features include: 

-          Improved Scheduling: A new user-friendly Scheduling Wizard was added that leads users step-by-step though the key scheduling process thereby streamlining the process and limiting programming mistakes. 

-          Operator key with Audit: This new key type allows a standard User key to collect a predefined amount of audit information from specific cylinders. This helps alleviate the need for the administrator to travel to each cylinder to accomplish this task, thereby creating a more efficient system. 

-          Support for the new Android Mobile programming device: The Mobile device is designed to allow the user to program a key from anywhere there is cellular service.
