Access control device at Vejle marina

Access control can be simple and Vejle marina is nailing it

Vejle marina – a modern state-of-the-art marina – has recently installed HarbaAccess cloud-based access control devices powered by Harba and Vanderbilt Industries

Challenge

Vejle marina was looking for a fully integrated IT solution to have a better overview and control of its marina facilities.

Solution

Vejle marina has chosen HarbaAccess cloud-based access control devices. They integrate seamlessly with the HarbaMaster marina management system as well as the self-service HarbaKiosk the marina is using. It gives the harbormaster full control over its facilities, while boaters can have a more convenient automated payment and access experience.

This means that transient marina guests can now get their unique access codes to marina facilities (e.g. shower, toilet, laundry rooms) as soon as they make a payment for them either through the free mobile app for boaters – HarbaApp or via the self-service HarbaKiosk at the marina. Long term berth holders are given their personal PIN or RFID tag to comfortably access the marina facilities as well. 

All services are then automatically billed on a monthly basis via the HarbaMaster marina management system providing an overview of the usage and payment information of marina facilities.

Benefits

This access control solution gives Vejle marina a better overview and control of its marina operations. Using only one system the harbourmaster can see who accessed which marina facilities and when. Various other relevant information is available as well. 

HarbaAccess ensures that only long term berth holders and only those transient marina guests who made payment can use the facilities. This saves money and gives more transparency in case of a security incident. 

Protecting marina’s property and ensuring the safety of their guests is of the highest priority for many marinas. Vejle marina can now be confident that unauthorized people will not access their facilities and if something is stolen or damaged it will be easy to track who did it and when.

HarbaAccess solution saves time for marina staff and boaters too. Marina staff can focus more on giving their marina customers a great experience rather than on such tedious tasks as handling keys or codes and making sure they are returned. Boaters can relax and enjoy the marine environment instead of wandering around trying to find out how to access its facilities. Everything is taken care of automatically. 

Finally, easy and safe access to marina facilities contributes to a better experience for marina guests. Surely anybody can relate to the stress and discomfort when somebody is in need to access the toilet but it’s locked. HarbaAccess makes it clear and easy for marina guests about how to access and use the preferred facilities.

Key takeaways

Vejle marina was looking for a fully integrated IT solution to have a better overview and control of its marina facilities.

In the end, Vejle marina had chosen HarbaAccess cloud-based access control devices which are part of Harba’s complete marina management solution. As expected, this gave the marina a better overview and control of its marina facilities. In addition to this, Vejle marina was able to minimize the amount spent on administrative and routine tasks, which in turn empowered the marina personnel to dedicate this time for more challenging work and better customer service for those in need. 

Vejle marina can now:

  • Have a better overview and control of its facilities
  • Save money instead of losing it by automating payments
  • Save time and use it for other important activities
  • Protect its marina property and ensure safety for marina guests in a smarter way
  • Improve marina guests’ experience when using their preferred facilities
