    YOUNiQ locations: Lund (Sweden)

    Industry: Real Estate 

By using YOUNiQ we can perform a remote on-boarding of all visitors, eliminating the need of administration of keys and passwords, and minimizing time spent. We are also securing that the right people are accessing our premises. We see this as our first installation with the ambition to include more locations as the area is expanding.

The challenge

At Möllegården in Lund, one of SVS AB’s facilities for smaller workshops and team meetings, the biggest challenge was their procedure of having to drive out to Möllegården from their HQ in Lund city to manually open rooms for conferences or other visits, as this facility is off site, situated between two world leading research facilities – MAX IV and ESS. Another big challenge was keeping track of all the keys, tags, and codes in circulation due to transport drivers using the facility as a resting place during times of bad weather or during their breaks. Keeping track of all the access credentials in circulation became a logistical nightmare for SVS’s small team, and in turn meant that offering Möllegården as a conference space became both time consuming and uneconomical. Security was also an issue as the as access keys where often lost and codes where reused and not changed. 

The solution

Without changing the existing access and alarm system, YOUNiQ Advanced* was installed at the main door and set to open for all registered users during working hours. This solution eliminated the need for access keys, tags, and codes, as users could now use facial recognition via YOUNiQ instead. The solution came with the added benefit of higher security levels at the facility, as well as reducing time spent on access management for the employees at SVS. 

The result

Whenever Möllegården is booked, the facilitator sends an email invitation to all visitors, to register via YOUNiQ (with a selfie) so that they have access during their visit. This means that the door can stay closed and secured during the duration of the renters visit, something that was not possible before, as only a few individuals had the access key or code. SVS employees also no longer need to drive to the facility and the exchange credentials with visitors, as the process is now completely digital. When the visit is over, access for all visitors is automatically revoked, and no keys nor tags are needed to be returned. Lastly, the public transport drivers enjoy seamless entry to the facilities during their breaks, and if new colleagues join, they are easily added to the system as well as removed when they are not working in the area.
