Technopolis UMA Workspace – modern mobile travel

October 14, 2019

UMA Workspace, the co-working concept of Technopolis chose IDcontrol as a partner to implement a mobile-based access control solution for its facilities in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The solution has been installed in the first workspace and more work will be done this year. Modern mobile access has received enthusiastic reception from users of the flexible UMA Workspace facilities.

UMA Workspace is an international network of flexible co-working spaces in the Nordic and Baltic countries. Currently, there are facilities located in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. UMA Workspace concept includes high-quality office and co-working spaces for companies of all sizes to rent.

The flexible workspace concept calls for an equally flexible and modern access control solution. The mobile access is done with a smart phone app. In addition to booking, the application also opens the doors of the premises.
– For us, the most important advantage of the mobile access solution, in addition to digitality, is ease of use. No more keys or access cards are needed. Since, it is a pioneer solution, we wanted a partner who, on top of the technical solution, was able to commit to building a new kind of implementation on a fast schedule. We wanted a partner that we can really trust. IDcontrol has been all this and we are very pleased with our co-operation, says the Facility Services Manager Emilia Itälinna, who is in charge of the mobile access project at Technopolis.

Enthusiastic reception from the users of the premises
The modern mobile access solution has received enthusiastic reception from the users of the facilities. In addition to flexibility and effortlessness, the ease of use of the application-based solution has been praised.
– Customers and users of UMA Workspace facilities are modern professionals who appreciate new well-functioning digital tools and the superior user experience they bring. I believe that mobile access will receive increased popularity without a doubt, especially in office rental concepts similar to ours, Itälinna says.
Mobile access to all UMA Workspace facilities

In addition to the five projects in 2018 and the six to seven project that will be executed in 2019, all UMA Workspace projects will be equipped with the IDcontrol mobile access solution.
-We have been providing the mobile access solution for a variety of facilities for some time already but building such a broad and complex entity that consists of several different locations in different countries requires of course a little extra work and collaboration with local partners. The UMA Workspace mobile access solution is exemplary in the industry and will definitely serve as a landmark for future mobile rental solutions for the office rental industry, says Markku Raitanen, the CEO of IDcontrol.
