Transitioning from Lockshop to Access Control

Introducing... Access Control! The FM Lockshop has now merged with SoonerCard, forming Access Control. Previously, the Lockshop performed all physical security services involving physical keys and door hardware. SoonerCard was responsible for all services involving electronic access plans and badge readers. The Lockshop has now taken on electronic badge reader installations and has rebranded as Access Control. This streamlines the process of hard keys and electronic access as it is now all completed through one department. In an effort to improve customer service, the Access Control shop was moved right next to Felgar Street with visitor parking just west of the building. The rebranding of the Lockshop as Access Control was overseen by Chris George, Manager, Access Control and Logan Byers, Supervisor, Access Control.
