|The move puts LOCKEN in a prime position to satisfy the increasingly demanding expectations of the smart access market
As the digital era continues to evolve businesses are increasingly looking to expand access control beyond its traditional role with high tech innovations. With as many as 40% of openings managed by new technologies, LOCKEN has announced an increase in investment and personnel in a direct bid to spearhead SMART security innovation.
15% increase in R&D and IT departments
As a direct result of demand for cable-free access control solutions, LOCKEN has increased its R&D and IT departments by 15% since January. This growth underpins the company’s efforts to incorporate new technology into its solutions while addressing strong cultural trends including the changes caused by the fast paced development of mobile applications.
The move puts the company in prime position to satisfy the increasingly demanding expectations of the market by incorporating the functionality and levels of detail specific to each line of business.
Over recent years LOCKEN has already adopted this strategy with the successful launch of the MyLocken application and its Bluetooth key, which shake up the boundaries between online and off-line access control.
“As a company we have only just started venturing down this road but the possibilities are endless.” Comments LOCKEN’s UK Managing Director, Nick Dooley. “Innovation, which is inextricably woven into LOCKEN'S DNA, continues to be a main growth driver and we will relentlessly pursue opportunities to continue improving the breadth of services and solutions we can offer.”
