iFob is key innovation

Traka's two most recent innovations are said to be cost effective and reliable in managing fork truck fleets. The company's small fleet system has been installed on over 8000 trucks in the UK and is designed to ensure
The company's small fleet system has been installed on over 8000 trucks in the UK and is designed to ensure that only authorised drivers have access to vehicles. The small fleet system works without the need for software or key cabinets.
Traka's solution relies upon intelligent electronic keys - iFobs - that can't be copied and which carry a user's unique profile. These iFobs operate in conjunction with a variation of the Traka Immobilisor, as used in all other Traka fork truck management systems.
Each driver has an individual iFob and updating the iFob to change access permissions takes seconds. The iFobs are hard-wearing, nickel-plated brass tubes.
Launched alongside the small fleet system, Traka's key control and access management system continues to prove popular for leading UK retail supermarket giant Tesco. Fitted on over 2,200 fork trucks at 22 Tesco distribution centres, the company has saved some 80,000 hours per year, or over £1 million pounds in improved productivity.
By changing from the tried and tested 'key per truck' to an 'iKey per Person' approach, it allows each driver to be given his or her own personal iFob.
