ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions whitepaper can help inform

  • 17 Jan 2023

A new expert-authored whitepaper from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions considers practical security strategies which facilities managers can put into action right away.

‘Modernizing facilities management’ is written by Simon Wilson, a 20-year veteran of the security industry. He analyses the relationship between health, safety, access control and security — both physical and cyber. 

He concludes with practical, actionable recommendations for streamlining the management of facilities with the right access control solution.

Simon works as CLIQ Business Development Manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA.

He comments: “Effective facilities management is vital to any organisation. It’s about much more than compliance and regulation.

“Facilities management can help deliver an organisation’s strategic objectives. It also ensures a safe working environment, which is key to the success of any business.”


A checklist for strategic facilities management

The new whitepaper takes a step-by-step approach to the important questions — and potential answers — to tackling problems and threats which facilities managers face every day.

Rather than treating these issues in isolation, Simon examines the links between key problems which modern facilities management must tackle.

The whitepaper also considers the ‘value-adds’ that effective facilities management can provide: not only convenience and operational efficiency, but cost efficiency too.

The central role of access — controlling it, securing it, adapting it — is a theme throughout the whitepaper.

Simon adds: “Fundamentally, effective facilities management is about finding solutions. The right solution protects the health and safety of staff and visitors, and in the process gives a facilities manager peace of mind.

“In addition, by helping a business and its managers to work smarter, it can provide a critical competitive advantage.”
