CLIQ® Remote from ASSA, part of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, where celebrated as ‘Most Innovative New Product’ in the 2017 Housing Innovation Awards.
An electromechanical cylinder offering effective key management while protecting against potential security risks, CLIQ Remote® is transforming access control in the social housing sector.
The technology allows housing organisations to give key holders – regardless of location – remote access to a property. Each key can be programmed and updated individually, which means key holders have access only to the areas relevant to them and during their allocated time or dates.
CLIQ® Remote is also reducing the time empty properties stand vacant between tenancies. By eliminating the need for physical key handovers, CLIQ® Remote technology removes workflow delays, ensuring maintenance staff or contractors are able to access void properties as and when needed.
Social housing organisations can also dramatically increase their potential to collect additional rent and council tax, due to quicker re-let times and improved working practices.
Ulrika Selendy, Director of Sales, Export Markets at ASSA AB, said: “We are thrilled that CLIQ® Remote is recognized for its innovative design and function in a new market segment”. The system offers a secure and flexible solution, helping organisations to streamline their workflow, while also providing a full audit trail and protecting assets from potential security risks.
“One example of CLIQ® Remote’s success in the social housing sector is Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC). Since being implemented 12 months ago, CLIQ® Remote is saving staff approximately 40 hours of time every week due to improved operational efficiencies.”
The Housing Innovation Awards took place at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, London, on 8 February 2017. To find out more, visit http://www.housinginnovationawards.co.uk
