Update on dorma+kaba Group innovations


dorma+kaba is holding its first Group CTO dialogue in Zurich today. As well as an update on current innovation activities, dorma+kaba’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Andreas Häberli is presenting a web-based access solution called “exivo”, which makes its debut appearance at the “Sicherheit” trade fair in Zurich. The solution, which functions on a central Kaba platform, is completely web-based. It offers a holistic approach that is very user friendly both for Kaba's distribution partners and for end users. Customers subscribe to the desired functionality as a service (“software as a service”).

exivo offers an easy way of planning and configuring access systems, as well as ordering, customising and installing such systems and defining the online organisation (dynamic allocation and withdrawal of access rights). exivo also monitors the system’s operations in real-time, as well as providing additional functions for easy servicing and maintenance. This unique solution, which is designed for both mechanical and electronic applications, is being targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises; the product will be available from next spring. Following Kaba Mobile Access (access via mobile devices), exivo is dorma+kaba’s second web-based access solution.

Participants in the CTO event, which is mainly for invited guests from the financial sector, will also hear about DORMA Group’s product range, as well as having an opportunity to take part in product demonstrations.
