Locken deploys its access control management at Migros in Geneva
In 2010, Locken fitted out 40 stores in the Migros Group, the Geneva-based cooperative. Migros Group is Switzerland's leading retailer with a 37% market share and stands as the country's top private employer. Migros-Geneva comprises 2 hypermarkets, 16 supermarkets and 16 convenience stores alongside DIY, sports and homeware stores. The company is an institution in both Geneva and neighbouring France. The entire cooperative contains 1,700 access points, accounting for 30,000 door openings a month.
Why Migros chose the Locken access control solution ?
Keen to ramp up security at the various sales outlets and warehouses and keep access under tight control, Migros opted for the Locken solution. With the special LSA (Locken Smart Access) software, the Locken access control solution allows users to assign access rights by user profile, guarantee response times and control access to sensitive sites.
The access points are located in the stores, warehouses and car parks and often exposed to severe weather conditions, making them ideally suited to the rugged, cable free Locken solution. Joseph Liotta, Security and Surveillance Manager at Migros, explains:
Locken's project managers supported and guided us through the process, from initial testing through to roll-out of the access control system across our network," says "Our close working relationship with Locken was instrumental in achieving our objectives within the specified lead-times
