Uniclox offers tailor-made solutions

July 2015 Entertainment and Hospitality (Industry), Access Control & Identity Management

The African hospitality industry is a massively expanding one. It has been estimated by the recently held Hotelier Summit Africa that more than 130 new hotels are currently being built in Gabon, Ghana, Nigeria, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Kenya, while around 11 new hotels are being developed in South Africa.

At the summit held in Morocco and attended by Uniclox, the company had the opportunity to present its solutions to hotel procurement personnel and hotel developers in northern and eastern Africa.

Uniclox manager, Woody Moodley, said that the company, among other key sectors, offers the hospitality industry tailor-made solutions such as access control through card systems that can determine the length of a guest’s stay, strict staff controls into places where money is stored, as well as parking management systems with RFID which is able to operate a gate from as much as two metres. “All these offerings add to the security aspect of a hotel or restaurant”, he said.

“These buyers were excited at the chance to work with a supplier from Africa, who understood their exacting security requirements and who could give them a complete turnkey solution”, Moodley said.

Uniclox also offers the ability for a hotel guest to be able to pay upfront for accommodation while a custom-made fingerprint solution is offered to casinos, which is ideal for the management of casino staff and which helps make operations more secure.

Moodley says the hotel summit provided the ideal opportunity for Uniclox to expand its footprint into Africa.

“We recently signed two new strategic partnership agreements which are enabling us to expand our business across Africa in the hospitality industry. The first partnership signed was with Softcon, a respected South African company that specialises in the development and manufacturing of access control products. More recently we formed a partnership with French company Bodet Software which is a global leader in the time and attendance market”, he said.

“Being able to present a complete turnkey solution that not only includes time, attendance and access control, but also complete building and asset management is a huge advantage, and we are excited at our prospects.
