Abloy UK has appointed Ian Miller as manager of its new Digital Access Solutions Academy, a purpose-built facility to showcase, work with, install and test the company’s range of products, with particular focus on new digital solutions and ecosystems.
Pip Courcoux, head of product, technical and digital transformation at Abloy UK, says the new academy is a key milestone in the ongoing development of the comprehensive training and CPD offering from Abloy. “Education has been a critical focus at Abloy UK since we first launched the Abloy Academy back in 2008, and we are now widely regarded as a centre of excellence for education within the industry.
“The Academy has continued to drive growth across our product portfolio, particularly with respect to compliance and electric locking, and with this comes the need to standardise and develop our training materials and processes.
“We recognised there was a need to create a new area of the Academy where we could focus on our expanding range of digital access solutions, and have someone with the right knowledge and expertise at the helm to effectively manage operations.
“We’re delighted to welcome Ian Miller, our new Digital Access Solutions Academy Manager onto the team, he will be pivotal in driving this next phase in the evolution of the Abloy Academy.”
Ian brings with him experience from both the IT industry, where he implemented and conducted software solutions training and support, and the security industry, where he spent six years conducting access control hardware training for installers, distributors, and end users.
Speaking of his appointment Ian said he is pleased to be joining Abloy UK at the start of this new milestone. "Developing this important new area of digital access solutions is really exciting, and I am looking forward to welcoming our existing and new customers to the Academy soon.”
