    YOUNiQ locations: Lund (Sweden)

    Industry: Real Estate 

By using YOUNiQ we can remotely onboard all visitors, eliminating the administration surrounding traditional keys and passwords, and minimizing time spent on this activity. We are also ensuring that only the right people are accessing our premises. We see this as our first installation with the ambition to include more locations as the area expands.

The challenge

Möllegården in Lund is a specialist off-site facility, situated between two world leading research facilities – MAX IV and ESS – for small size workshops and team meetings.

The biggest challenge for SVS AB team was that every time it was used, one person from the team had to drive out to Möllegården from their HQ in Lund city to manually open rooms and allow visitors to access it. In addition to this inefficient way of working, it was also a significant challenge keeping track of all the keys, tags, and codes in circulation due to transport drivers using the facility as a resting place during periods of bad weather or during their breaks.

With only a small team to do all of this manually, it meant that offering Möllegården as a conference space became both time consuming and uneconomical. A further issue was ensuring security since access keys were often lost and codes were not changed. This in turn meant they could be shared and reused by unauthorized visitors.

The solution

Without the need to change 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 by SVS employees on access management.

The result

Now, whenever Möllegården is booked, the facilitator sends an email invitation to all visitors, to register via YOUNiQ (with a selfie) so that they have automatic access during their visit. This means that the door can stay securely closed during the venue hire duration – something that wasn’t possible before, as only select individuals had the access key or code. SVS employees no longer need to drive to the facility to provide visitor access as the process is now completely digital. When the visit is over, access for all visitors automatically finishes, with no need for keys or tags to be returned to SVS. In addition, public transport drivers now enjoy seamless entry to the facilities during their breaks, and if new colleagues join their team, they are easily added to the system. Drivers are just as easily removed as well when they are not working in the area.
