Creating a Compact, Trouble-Free System for Managing Keys
Spuren Systems, Inc., sought a solution to the jangling, fumbling annoyance that accompanies the traditional key chain. The company looked to Nectar to completely reinvent the way people store, manage, access, and utilize their keys, so they wouldn’t find themselves fumbling for their keys in their pocket or purse, or frequently dropping them in the driveway, street, or parking lot. Spuren had an idea for a slide-based system called the Keyport and turned to Nectar to transform that idea into an innovative product.
Accommodating Different Sizes, Shapes, and Items
Creating the Keyport required a thorough assessment of both the traditional ways that people have used key chains and potential new uses in the coming years. The Keyport had to be compact and easy to operate, while accommodating a wide range of key types and sizes, including high-security and computer-chipped automobile keys. It had to fit comfortably in the front pocket of a pair of jeans, make it easy to swap out old keys for new, and allow for other uses, such as carrying a small flashlight or bottle opener.
Designing a Versatile, Organized Approach to Keys
Nectar designed and engineered the Keyport for simplicity, versatility, and durability. The slide-based cartridge system can hold up to six keys as well as accommodate optional inserts for accessing a mini-LED flashlight, a USB flash drive, a bottler opener, or a bar code cardholder. The Keyport is constructed from high-grade materials and includes a unit-specific serial number that enables owners to retrieve lost keys via the Keyport Lost & Found service. The compact, elegant design has no sharp edges and doesn’t jingle when you pull it out like a traditional key chain.
Delivering a Simple, Durable Key Management System
Nectar’s simple, compact, high-volume-production-oriented design for the Keyport delivered a modern, innovative key chain alternative that consolidates keys and other everyday-carry items into one sleek, indispensable device. The Keyport is compatible with the most popular brands of high-security keys including Medeco, Assa, Mul-T-Lock, Abloy, and Schlage Primus, and supports reprogramming of automobile computer-chipped keys. The Keyport provides a more organized, functional approach to managing and accessing your keys.
