Locksmiths

Welcome Locksmiths Team Members. The UBC Locksmiths are a unit within Parking and Access Services, and have historical ties to Building Operations. As current users of PeopleSoft, the Locksmiths are the newest stakeholder group for Phase 1 of Planon’s rollout.

The Locksmith Shop is a core team of technicians supported by a head and a subhead, who install, service and repair UBC’s locks and locking hardware, and provide keys to the UBC Access Desk for distribution to our community key holders.

You will experience some degree of change when Planon is implemented. For example:

  • Today, you may enter and access information in PeopleSoft or other systems; tomorrow, you will access Planon on any mobile, tablet or computer to access information to do your daily work.
  • Today, you may manually complete paper forms and forward to colleagues for approval or action; tomorrow, you will log in to Planon and enter information or update the status of work.
  • Today, you may receive verbal or email notifications on the status of work; tomorrow, you will receive automated notifications at each step of a business workflow process to keep you in the loop.
  • Today, you may create or maintain your own separate spreadsheets for budgeting, project status tracking etc.; tomorrow, based on your security and role, you will be able to access real-time data for information or analysis.

You are invited to participate in the EMMS Project to help shape how we’ll work in the future. Check back often to understand what’s happening and what to expect next as the project progresses. Updates will be provided at team and crew meetings on an ongoing basis to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
