Spotlight on a Cloud Team: Australasia

We are excited to announce a new blog post series on SALTO KS: Spotlight on a Cloud Team. This series was inspired by the incredible KS Cloud champions/teams working together around the globe with only one common goal: To make this world a key-less one! In this series, we shine the spotlight on these teams across the world in order to showcase their daily work and motivation behind cloud-based access control.

For our very first post, we feature our KS cloud team down under, at SALTO Systems Australasia, i.e. Australia, New Zealand, and neighbouring islands. We interviewed Channel Manager, Steven Strang, who gave us insight into their cloud team, and their journey with cloud-based solutions.

What are three words you would use to describe SALTO KS?

Cloud = the future

Which successes with SALTO KS are you most proud of? What is your favourite KS project?

My favourite project was my first one at the HWT Tower in Melbourne with IWG, it was my first KS project and I did the commissioning of the site, a very proud moment.

What is your favourite thing about working in the cloud team of SALTO?

What I love about the Cloud team is there are no glass ceilings, you can pick up the phone to anyone in the team at any time (benefits of global ☺️) and everyone steps up to help, whether it’s to close a deal, fix an issue or investigate new possibilities.

What can be a challenging aspect of selling SALTO KS?

Waiting for reality to catch up with the possibilities that are being presented daily in the market.

Which cloud product would you like KS to be integrated with, and why?

Smart Building Software helping to streamline and automate the environmental controls of a building in conjunction with access control. With the access control linked to lighting, power, air-conditioning and general servicing, I believe having them on one platform will greatly enhance the experience for the end-user. This would be in conjunction with providing a simple, powerful and efficient management tool for the building manager. This would enhance the KS engagement with existing and potential clients in balance with today’s (and tomorrow’s) IoT world.

At the Clay office, we have SALTO KS installed on our main door, meeting rooms and storage, so the Clay team uses SALTO KS on a daily basis. Are you also a regular user of KS, besides demos at sales meetings?

At the Australasian offices, we have SALTO KS installed on our main door, meeting rooms and storage, so the team uses SALTO KS on a daily basis along with functional integrations with Eagle Eye.

We would like to thank Steven and the entire SALTO Systems Australasia team for featuring in our first Spotlight on a Cloud Team blog post and for sharing with us their thoughts and experience as a KS cloud team!
