ASSA ABLOY’s strategies for product leadership are based on four guiding principles:
● Maintaining a groupwide, structured innovation process;
● Understanding customer demands on a deeper level and applying them to product management and development;
● Developing and using common modular platforms and technologies; and
● Investing in research and development competence centers
The Group’s innovation process involves developing common globalized platforms and interfaces on a technological level before localizing them on a product level. With respect to the different standards and consumer needs in different parts of the world, our modular and sustainable approach allows us to diversity products at varying scales, and in varying environments, cultivating precisely the kind of intelligent security ecosystem that is invaluable to modern living.
