The two are the same thing Asec is a brand name used by Aldridge.

Don't have a problem with JMA ref myself I suppose it's what ever you use to.

On that subject used the SKS website last week, the keys are not available to buy on-line yet, but you can get everthing else.

Seems to take longer to do than just phoning up with your order.

 

What would be great, if every order you make was kept under "your stock" and over the years would keep record of what you stock, click the box next to it to reorder. That could work with keys aswell, you would end up with your own key board online to just click when needed.

 

I know SKS sometime post replies, What do you think? Would work for me :)

Does anyone have any idea what the Charles Birch equivalent for key JMA AL3 might be? Can't find it in their catalogue!

Have you got CB CD catalogue yet?

asec=aldridge security (a.sec) aldridge are the main agents for silca keys in this country and eddie aldridge is a race horse owner and all his horses have the word silca in their names not that I know any thing about horse racing but I used to employ an avid follower of horse racing and he would always have a fluter on any aldridge horse I can't seem to recall him winning though

Its does sound a good idea with the online ordering type thing - I know we are looking at adding keys to our website as soon as possiable - Also hope to be adding a Cross ref in the future as well - I will pass this info onto my MD and website people to see what they say and can do for the future !

 

JMA Numbers - I Know being a JMA supplier I will answer this towards the JMA numbers are good. - But really I think they are - The best thing is if you have a JMA number that is it - You do not then need to find a Hook number to relate it back to your own stocks - Silca key numbers are the same - And HD - But it is just with some suppliers they then add Hook numbers which I think confuses the matter ! We at SKS used to use Hook numbers as well around 10 - 12 years ago - But decided to just keep to the Key number - (in this case JMA) To make life easier for the end Shop to use ...

:) But as above it really is what you are used to :)

Phill, that would take an awful lot of space on a server :shock: Be time consuming to maintain too!

 

Keith do you use that system and can it be used with suppliers web sites?

 

EG. if I click epos that I need U5-D it can upload to the web site without any fafarsing around.

 

It needs to be easy or you may just aswell phone it through :?

The main difficulty in coding this comes down to how to retrieve the items back to the basket as our stock lines carry both the main stock code, plus various options listed underneath them.

 

It's a nice concept, but I do wonder how many people would actually use it?

 

Could our time be better spent clearing up the navigation system? If so, how would you like to be able to enter your orders?

 

Any suggestions, drop them to webmaster@skskeys.co.uk

 

 

As to the original poster's question, I'm just waiting on a file from the people working on our new comparison book to see if it includes updated CEA references for the newer keys.

Ok point taken.

Using JMA key ref. would not be a problem for us but sometimes its a pain if you have to cross ref.

When ordering a key, have a system like Instacode with a box titled key ref.

Type in any key number and it gives you and additional choice of key blank manufactures which use that code and a picture of the key.

Click the correct manufacturer and it converts it to JMA ref. straight away.

Then have another box for quantity, click ok then job done.

 

With regards to other products, have an index section like in the back of your catalogue so you can scroll through and find what your looking for. Search boxs are ok if you know what your looking for.

Key blanks section will be very different to the rest of the site, hence why it's taking longer to complete and will almost certainly include crossmatching and we're intending to include vehicle searching capability.

 

 

I'll look at the idea of doing an index page, it might be possible to include a mode at the top of the products list page to go from pictures to a list.
