As the digital era continues to evolve businesses are increasingly looking to expand access control beyond its traditional role, says the product manufacturer LOCKEN. The company has announced an increase in investment and personnel.
As a result of demand for cable-free access control solutions, LOCKEN reports that it has increased its R&D and IT departments by 15pc since January. This underpins the company says its 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 position to satisfy the increasingly demanding expectations of the market by incorporating the functionality and levels of detail specific to each line of business, it is claimed.
Over recent years LOCKEN says, it has already adopted this strategy with the launch of the MyLocken application and its Bluetooth key, on the boundaries between online and off-line access control.
LOCKEN’s UK Managing Director, Nick Dooley, pictured, says: “As a company we have only just started venturing down this road but the possibilities are endless. 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.” Visit www.locken.co.uk.
