Whitepaper: Reshaping the future of retail with security technology

Case study

Cloud-based access control supports Czech bike rental company Kolovna

A cloud-based access control solution has been chosen for its remote management and scalability opportunities to support the growth of Kolovna, a bike rental company in Czechia.

ASSAABLOY-BikeRentalKolovna-22The Kolovna Project aims to make cycling more widespread, not only by offering Czech customers top-quality products, services and technical support, but also by improving the logistics of organising a trip. The company ultimately wants to make bike rental easier, while maintaining the highest standards of user safety and equipment security.

Its solution is to bring a secured bicycle container to popular cycling locations all over Czechia. Access to each container is filtered and monitored by electronic locks, so customers can safely park their own bike or rent one from the container.

This secure container solution for cycle hire is designed to increase the availability of rentals at leisure spots and to give customers peace of mind that their equipment is safe. Ultimately, Kolovna plans to expand service to Prague, too.

Kolovna’s containers must combine security with easy customer access, including unlocking via mobile keys on a smartphone. To achieve this, Kolovna required an access control platform, which could multi-task without additional technologies, more software or extra staff. The business chose Incedo Business Cloud, from ASSA ABLOY, installing readers, a controller and door module in every container.

Incedo connects all Kolovna’s security software and hardware within one system, while cloud management keeps Kolovna staff in control of their premises from anywhere. They can work in an office, at home or mobile.

The integrated Incedo solution includes remote cloud administration, a system for transmitting video surveillance signal and flexibility to add more access and security features in the future. Access control admin is also simplified, explains ASSA ABLOY, as cloud management enables flexibility to extend or add new access points at any time.

“Apart from product security, the biggest benefit of the collaboration with ASSA ABLOY included consultations on, and the preparation and subsequent implementation of, the system, a process incorporating several other organisations,” says Kolovna’s Rostislav Posker.

“Thanks to ASSA ABLOY’s custom solution, Kolovna management did not have to organize time-consuming meetings with multiple contractors or worry about the compatibility of individual systems,” he adds.
