STOCKHOLM—Assa Abloy Hospitality, provider of advanced security technologies for the hospitality industry, is restructuring its organizational hierarchy, with hospitality now becoming one of several specialized market-specific units operating under the new Assa Abloy Global Solutions name.
Along with its mission to “reimagine how people move through their world,” a driving force behind the company’s restructuring has been its focus on investing in businesses and solutions that can be scaled on a global level. This will allow Assa Abloy Global Solutions to fully cater to the numerous and unique security challenges facing diverse markets around the world today, according to the company.
The company’s ongoing evolution has included expanding into other vertical markets such as marine, elderly care, student housing, asset management and logistics. Assa Abloy Global Solutions provides each vertical market with a dedicated direct sales channel and ensures that its platforms, software and support services are readily available and tailorable, regardless of region or business background.
While the hotel market will maintain its own specialized hospitality business unit of the company, the expansion into vertical markets allows the company to ensure that its comprehensive range of solutions is made available to any market sector, while providing a greater depth of industry-specific expertise. By leveraging its experience in working with various markets, Assa Abloy Global Solutions will be able to identify and innovate additional technologies that can be customized to meet the specific needs of each type of facility, the company reports.
“We are very pleased with the success that we have had with our hospitality organizational model, which focuses on one of our key verticals and creates dedicated solutions that meet specific market needs,” said Christophe Sut, EVP/head of the global technologies business unit at Assa Abloy Global Solutions. “With that in mind, we identified a need to replicate this approach for other vertical markets and, therefore, created Assa Abloy Global Solutions to provide the specific security hardware, software, installation and support services that cater to each industry’s needs. This restructuring also enhances our value by allowing us to create new types of relationships with our customers, providing the potential to innovate solutions that bolster organic growth and that create exceptional experiences for end users. We look forward to continuing to bring such advanced abilities as we expand our presence within the hospitality, marine and elderly care markets and beyond.”
