Global people flow solutions provider KONE is accelerating its pace of innovation by onboarding new technology partners. The company asked Gofore to develop a quality assurance service to validate the caliber and reliability of its partner candidates and their solutions.
The world is witnessing an unparalleled convergence of the megatrends of digitalization and urbanization. Finland-headquartered KONE, provides elevators, escalators and people flow solutions to help people navigate the world’s ever-expanding urban landscapes.
Around one billion people use KONE solutions every day, and the company is constantly working to develop and deploy new solutions to improve the flow of people for the benefit of customers and end-users.
As cities expand and become smarter and the need for newer, more technologically-advanced solutions grows, KONE is expanding its network of technology partners to identify new solutions more quickly and cost-effectively.
“KONE has a good track record in innovation, but IoT [the Internet of Things] and digitalization has changed the landscape a great deal,” said Jukka Salmikuukka, KONE’s Head of Ecosystem Business in the company’s New Services and Solutions unit.
