The security company SafeTeam has received a major order from Ekerö Bostäder after winning a public procurement during the autumn of 2021. The order has a value of just over SEK 5 million and concerns the digital locking system from iLOQ, which will now be installed in the entire Ekerö Bostäder apartment portfolio.
The municipality has previously used the system in a limited number of residential buildings, but Ekerö Bostäder has now chosen to extend the system by installing it in all its apartments. Behind the decision was a desire to minimize the harmful impact of lost keys.
“For us, it is very important that the lock is digital, in other words programmable. In the current situation, we may, in the worst case, be forced to replace an entire locking system if a master key is lost. While, with iLOQ, we can quickly and easily make a lost key unusable. Right now, we are in the starting pits for this project, but we have got a good impression of our first meetings with SafeTeam and look forward to our upcoming collaboration,” explains Claes Vikström, Property Manager for Ekerö Bostäder.
Expanding its presence in the municipality
For SafeTeam, the agreement means an extended presence in Ekerö. The security company already has an agreement with Ekerö municipality and is a lock supplier to schools, service housing, municipal buildings and other public properties.
“We are very happy to receive this trust from Ekerö Bostäder. Since we are already established in the municipality and have a number of service technicians there, we know the area and its challenges very well. We look forward to continuing to work closely with iLOQ; the company has a fantastic product and we have developed a very good collaboration over the years,” states Kent Rundquist, Head of Locks at SafeTeam.
iLOQ also views the deal positively and the continued collaboration with SafeTeam.
“Ekerö Bostäder is now greatly expanding its iLOQ portfolio as a next step in their digitalization journey. With Ekerö Bostäder’s focus on security, finances, the environment and simplified administration, it is of course great to continue to have confidence as a supplier, while we continue our good collaboration with SafeTeam,” states Anders Klees, Sales Manager at iLOQ Sverige AB.
