ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions Showcases Cloud-based Vostio Access Management at HITEC Minneapolis With multiple properties already leveraging the solution, attendees are set to gain valuable insight into why cloud-based technology is the future of hospitality security access management. Stockholm – June 18, 2019 – ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions is set to showcase Vostio Access Management at this year’s HITEC Minneapolis, taking place June 17-20 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. A next generation cloud-based solution that allows hoteliers to manage their security access operations from anywhere and at any time, Vostio Access Management is already utilized by several properties around the world, with those visiting HITEC booth #2708 able to witness how the technology is now being used to cost effectively ensure the highest standard of security and data confidentiality at all times. “While keeping guests and hotel staff safe always remains the highest priority, constant shifts in technology along with new threats that are routinely discovered ensure that this commitment is one of the industry’s most challenging tasks,” says Philippe Cadon, Operations Support Manager at Louvre Hotels Group. “Yet since the implementation of Vostio Access Management and its automated software update abilities, we have gained an enormous advantage in that any potential vulnerability discovered can be promptly dealt with by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, without any additional burden placed on our own staff and without the need to incur further costs.” Simultaneously maximizing operational efficiency, hotel security and guest convenience, Vostio Access Management’s cloud-based functionality allows staff members to access its features via web browser from either the front desk, back office or on the go. Available functionalities include the ability to control guest and staff access with remote activation or deactivation of RFID keycards and mobile keys. Staff are further able to review all access attempts and any keycard creation, providing an extra layer of security with the ability to act swiftly should a threat arise. As a truly next generation access management system, Vostio Access Management also leverages the cloud to receive regular software updates, ensuring that the platform is always immune from newly identified threats or vulnerabilities and at no additional cost to hoteliers. Vostio Access Management is also designed to be GDPR-ready, incorporating both privacy by design and privacy by default. “We are proud to work alongside hoteliers such as the Louvre Hotels Group in providing their properties with the latest in security access technology at a cost-effective price,” says Markus Boberg, Global President, Hospitality at ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions. “The hospitality industry has always had to balance implementing security enhancements with budget considerations, along with the added concern that any new solution may soon become outdated. Those attending HITEC this year can witness first-hand how Vostio Access Management finally addresses this dilemma, and as a scalable and modular solution, how it can be customized to fit the precise needs of any property type and size.” Due to its cloud-based platform, Vostio also minimizes operational expenses by completely eliminating the need for costly on-site servers and functioning as a fully online solution. Vostio further sidesteps time-consuming on-site maintenance, and with the availability of standardized monthly license subscriptions, can reduce costs even further. Developed as a future-proof system, Vostio is equipped to seamlessly integrate with new property upgrades and is also compatible with existing door hardware. ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions is set to provide live Vostio Access Management demonstrations at HITEC booth #2708, alongside other industry leading innovations such as Mobile Access, Vostio Location Solutions and Essence door locks that are now compatible with metal doors.
