ASSA ABLOY are the global leader in door opening solutions. They also operate several B2B brands including Traka, Abloy and Mul-T-Lock, and are dedicated to satisfying end-user needs for security, safety and convenience.

They approached White Oak UK to provide a way of making their solutions more affordable for their business customers.

The Problem

ASSA ABLOY provide unparalleled security solutions across a range of markets however they appreciate that that their solutions can often require a large initial outlay for their clients. They needed a solution that would help remove cost as a barrier to sale whilst remaining separate from the sales process.

The Solution

ASSA ABLOY joined White Oak UK's Partner Programme, with Traka, whose intelligent key cabinets and locker solutions enable businesses to secure, manage and audit the use of almost any physical asset, being the first of the group to roll out the programme.

Using our Asset Finance solutions, Traka’s businesses customers can now finance their projects, allowing them to spread the cost.

As Francesco Surace, UK Finance Director at Traka explains, “Our partnership with White Oak UK demonstrates our commitment by making our solutions more affordable for our business customers.”

Traka also use White Oak UK’s Partner App, which enables vendors’ sales teams to easily structure finance to meet customer budgets, provide finance quotations, submit applications and receive email updates. Full training on the Partner App for the Traka sales team was carried out on-site by White Oak UK.

The partnership was also extended in late 2018 to include funding solutions for both the Abloy and Mul-T-Lock divisions.

The Result

Our partnership with ASSA ABLOY has made it easier for their customers to purchase the security and asset management solutions they need.

By utilising our Partner Programme, clients have access to a range of flexible finance solutions which enables them to maintain and grow margin, increase sales and improve cash flow to help support businesses across the UK.
