Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL), a large fast moving consumer goods company in India, has chosen Nedap's security management system AEOS to secure its new corporate office in Mumbai. It specializes in everyday needs for nutrition, hygiene, and personal care.
The Indian subsidiary of Unilever recently moved its corporate office within the city of Mumbai to a new ultramodern campus, which is spread over 12.5 acres of land and will house more than 1,600 employees. The campus offers various facilities to employees including convenience stores, a library, a food court, an occupational health centre, a gym and a day care center. The idea behind the move was to integrate various business processes under “One HUL Campus” and to concentrate the divisions of the organization in one place.
Considering that a state-of-the-art campus needs a state-of-the-art security solution, HUL decided to choose Nedap AEOS as the company's security management system. To make sure that the company's intelligence is well protected, approximately 120 doors are secured with AEOS, whereas the gates that give access to the campus are equipped with Nedap long range vehicle identification readers. Furthermore, AEOS visitor management has been implemented including the preregistration of visitors by HUL employees. The AEOS system was implemented by Nedap's business partner Siemens Building Technologies in Mumbai.
Nancy Wanders, Business Development Manager Asia/Pacific at Nedap, said, “This project perfectly shows the extensive possibilities of the AEOS system. Thanks to its open architecture, the functionality of AEOS is freely configurable, creating a very flexible system that can be easily adjusted to changing security needs.
