Global electronic key and equipment solutions provider, Traka, will be launching its next-generation key management systems in 2023, which will provide enhanced security, serviceability and traceability for its clients and resellers.

In addition to the global launch, Traka Africa has “aggressive expansion plans” for the next five years, during which time the company will be focusing on further expanding into sub-Saharan Africa. The continued market sector presence in South Africa will remain in the mining, banking, automotive, healthcare, critical infrastructure and data centre sectors.

“We intend to achieve this via our partner network and experience centre, which serves as a hub for knowledge sharing, training, support and, most importantly, collaboration between our clients and partners. We are continually innovating and adding new features and functionality to our TrakaWEB and Traka Touch technologies, ensuring our clients recognise value and a real return on their investment,” the company’s new GM, Mark Stoop, says.

Traka Africa (which is part of the ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions division) was formed in 2001 and boasts an employee count of 32, with over 400 employees in Traka ASSA ABLOY worldwide.

The company offers a host of solutions, including asset management for laptops, mobile phones, tablets, radios, gas detection instruments and explosives process control; as well as the TrakaWEB enterprise software platform – a standalone or centralised management system which has more than 2000 systems installed globally.

Traka offers turnkey professional services, through which the company ensures that all installed systems are “professionally installed and maintained.” Stoop says the company’s value proposition focuses on accountability, operational efficiency and transparency, audit and reporting capabilities, as well as delivering a tangible return on investments.

This is critical, he adds, considering that clients need reliability, flexibility, and research and development capabilities provided by a recognised brand that “has the ability to locally support technologies it delivers.”

Over the course of the next 12 months, Traka Africa is anticipating that the mining sector will see an improvement in the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy’s compliance documentation process, as well as improved management of critical asset investments.

“Traka Africa will be driving better process control with comprehensive audit reporting as it continues to integrate with existing systems, like access control, to provide better control, efficiency and seamless operation through a central platform,” Stoop concludes.
