Abloy UK publishes new White Paper on subject of ‘Integrated Thinking’

Abloy UK has launched a new discussion paper entitled ‘Integrated Thinking: Connected Security for Smart Infrastructure’ which outlines the potential for system integration in the Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) sphere, and assesses the vast scope of benefits that could be achieved from a truly integrated way of operating. 

Pip Courcoux, sales and product manager at CLIQ Systems, said: “With an ever-growing population and greater sustainability and efficiency targets, UK CNI organisations are under more pressure than ever before. The connected world is revolutionising the way in which critical assets are protected, but is true system integration really achievable? The concept of ‘Integrated Thinking’ is a mindset to help us move forward with a philosophy that because it should it can, not because it can it should.”

Courcoux added: “If we think about connecting the solution holistically throughout the design, engineering, sales and support process, and adopt an integrated thinking relationship marketing strategy, then we will achieve true connected status and create Smart Infrastructure solutions.”
