Doordeck launches new distribution arrangement with Oprema, expanding the smart security market in the UK

January 15, 2019

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve signed a new distribution arrangement with Oprema, one of the largest and fastest-growing distributors of access control products in the UK. They’ll have exclusive distribution rights for our integrated smartphone access platform, Doordeck for Paxton Net2.

Doordeck, which lets building users unlock doors from their phone (instead of a keycard or keyfob), is unique in being the only ‘keyless’ product on the market designed to integrate directly with a building’s existing access control system — like the industry-leading Paxton Net2. Fundamentally, it means we, together with Oprema, can roll out smartphone access to an entire building in under 15 minutes, without any downtime or disruption for the end-user.

Oprema, being one of the largest distributors of Paxton in the UK, was, of course, a natural fit for Doordeck’s unique platform. Under our new partnership, Doordeck will be available immediately for existing Oprema customers who wish to add smartphone functionality to their Paxton systems. New Oprema customers will also have the option of having Doordeck on their access control systems from day one.

William Bainborough, Doordeck’s CEO, said of the partnership:

“Oprema have been one of the most ambitious and innovate providers of access control we’ve met, so I’m delighted that they’ll be representing us here in the UK. With Oprema exclusively distributing Doordeck for Paxton, it means we can get our product in the hands of even more users whilst having more time to build even more new features for our users. This is just the start of our partnership, but we’re looking forward to supporting and growing alongside Oprema.”

Gareth Williams, Oprema Sales Director, added:

“At Oprema we are always searching for the latest technology advancements in the marketplace for our customers. Doordeck represents our first ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) solution, utilising the exiting access control reader infrastructure. The Doordeck integration with market leading manufacturer Paxton, will allow any mobile device (Android or Apple) to act as a credential on the system, displacing the use of cards and fobs. I see a huge opportunity for applications with a large card population such as gymnasiums, universities, banks and blue-chip organisations. I am delighted to welcome Doordeck as an Oprema strategic partner and excited for our future growth together.”

We’re thrilled to have Oprema on board and we can’t wait to share more news with you soon. Follow us on Twitter, for the latest news, feature releases and updates.
