Sustainable and effective key management for Stockholm’s schools


Property management of Stockholm’s schools is proving much simpler and more sustainable thanks to a complete digital key solution from ASSA ABLOY.


Owned by the City of Stockholm, SISAB manages 600 school properties, including 3,000 buildings. Subcontractors needed to visit SISAB headquarters to receive keys to access a particular site to perform routine maintenance or repairs. With an average of 25 to 30 keys being handed out per day, the sub contractors were spending significant time and fuel making trips to collect and return keys, contributing to an unnecessarily high carbon footprint.


Thanks to expertise from across the ASSA ABLOY Group, SISAB was able to implement a tailored digital key management system, SKOL, built around the Traka intelligent key management system and CLIQ Remote digitally-encrypted keys. Keys are obtained from a cabinet located within the perimeter of each property and can only be used in combination with digital accreditation and registration in the system.The solution eliminates the time and fuel wasted visiting SISAB headquarters to collect keys, or even arriving at a property with the wrong key.


Since implementing SKOL, approximately 54,000 key extractions have successfully taken place on-site without visiting SISAB headquarters. This has resulted in SISAB eliminating 40 tons in CO2 emissions within the first two years of implementing SKOL. As a completely digitalized platform, SKOL also reduces the use of paper documentation.
