Remote Lock Expands European Operations With Purchase of SmartLock Europe
A reseller of RemoteLock’s universal access control software, it’s said the purchase of SmartLock Europe will position RemoteLock for faster growth in the European market.
DENVER — RemoteLock announces the expansion of its European operations with the acquisition of SmartLock Europe.
The acquisition affirms RemoteLock’s position as a leading access control provider worldwide and further strengthens the company’s operations in the region, the announcement states.
Since 2015, SmartLock Europe has been providing remote access control solutions for commercial and vacation rental applications throughout the UK, Europe and surrounding regions. The company meets the needs of its markets by reselling RemoteLock’s universal access control software — software that can control hardware of many types from many different manufacturers.
Stuart Duncan, founder of SmartLock Europe, will assume the role of vice president of European operations as part of RemoteLock’s leadership team.
“I am excited to join RemoteLock and continue to bring the power of the platform to the European market on a larger scale,” says Duncan. “With the expansion of RemoteLock Europe, we are addressing the many access control challenges that are unique to this region and building upon the strong foothold RemoteLock already has in these countries.”
RemoteLock’s universal access control platform allows users worldwide to remotely control access for renters, guests, employees and contractors. RemoteLock provides ultimate flexibility — the ability to control any door using various credential types with locks from all leading manufacturers — all from one dashboard, according to the company. Today, RemoteLock serves customers in over 65 countries.
“The acquisition of SmartLock Europe positions us for faster growth in the European market,” says RemoteLock CEO, Nolan Mondrow. “By integrating European operations into RemoteLock, we now have strong positions in North America, Japan and Europe.”
RemoteLock’s Chief Financial Officer Hull McKinnon says that geographic expansion is a key part of the company’s long-term strategy. “I joined the company in March 2021 to help it capitalize on the near-limitless opportunities for expansion stemming from its versatile access control technology platform. This acquisition aligns perfectly with our plans to continue our expansion efforts and increase growth.”
