Accessy is now launched, with Sweden's largest real estate company and the investment companies Novax and Buildroid behind it. Accessy is a service that provides the ability to handle locks in a safe and efficient way with the mobile phone. A similar collaboration has rarely been seen by the real estate industry.
Fastighetsvärlden told about the technology collaboration a year ago. Now it is ready to use. Vasakronan will have it in the new Sergelhuset and Arenakonceptet and Castellum at United Spaces.
The service complements existing locking systems and is already adapted for most of the major locking suppliers on the market.
Accessy's vision is to create a common standard for digital keys and a service where property owners can easily link the customer journey in a smoother way. It is a joint initiative that was initially funded by Vasakronan, Castellum, Akademiska Hus, Fabege, Humlegården and Fastighetsägarna Service.
Novax, which is part of Axel Johnson's investment company, and Buildroid, which is owned by Stronghold, Vincero and Slättö, are also joining as financiers and co-owners. The capital guaranteed by existing and new shareholders secures development and operation for the next few years.
"It is a strength that the development has taken place with the largest real estate companies on the market and now that Novax and Buildroid are also joining, it is a clear proof that we are on the right track." Says Håkan Eriksson, new CEO of Accessy. Säger Håkan Eriksson, vd på Accessy.
The technology uses the phone as a reader and the Access app has the user's secure identity, much like a Bank ID. It is the digital key that opens the door if the right authorization is available. The system is already today integrated with the largest lock suppliers on the market such as RCO, SimonsVoss, Assa Arx, Dormakaba, Axis and Vanderbilt, and more are in line.
"A common standard for digital key management solves several challenges that exist today. Accessy will e.g. to facilitate all flows of deliveries to the properties and tenants to be able to connect more services to their workplace. The fact that it is an open system makes it easy for property owners to connect to Accessy. You can use the locking systems you already have and not put resources into new installation.” Says Peter Östman, the initiators' board member in Accessy.
“If you have a craftsman who is going to spend an hour in a property, you can easily arrange it, without having to work with tiles or cards. The phone is enough. ” Says Östman to Fastighetsvärlden.
Over the past year, Accessy has been installed and sharply tested in a number of the initiators' properties and now the service is ready to roll out on the market.
