Medeco CLIQ Go is a cost-effective intelligent key system for small to medium-sized businesses that allows them to manage their security on the go using the CLIQ Go mobile app.  “Medeco CLIQ Go was designed for business owners who need access control on only a handful of doors,” said Ashok Acharya, Medeco CLIQ product line manager. “Winning this award is testament to Medeco’s commitment to provide innovative—and economical—intelligent key systems for businesses of all sizes.”

Medeco CLIQ Go also benefits local security professionals by creating a recurring revenue source, as well as the opportunity to offer intelligent key systems “off the shelf” to their business clients. Medeco CLIQ Go puts locksmiths in control of their intelligent key business, from the sale to programming keys to expanding current systems as client needs change.
