Deliveroo has chosen AEOS access control by Nedap to protect its staff across the world. Nedap’s UK Expert channel partner, Hunter Group, completed the installation at the first site, in Dubai, and an ambitious rollout will see Hunter install AEOS at around 50 more Deliveroo sites, plus new locations, over the next 12-18 months.
A future-facing approach
Deliveroo was founded in the UK and is proud to export British-born technology around the world. Its ‘Frank’ algorithm is based on powerful predictive technology that evaluates the most efficient way of distributing orders based on the location of restaurants, riders and customers.
With 650% year-on-year growth, Deliveroo’s development has been explosive and the company now has at least 200 offices across 47 countries. Staff security is paramount for Deliveroo and it wanted a global security platform and technology partners capable of keeping up with its expansion. Naturally, Deliveroo is keen to embrace new technologies and innovations too and wanted to move forward with companies like Nedap and Hunter that have the same future-facing mentality.
Centralised global security
AEOS will enable Deliveroo to centralise security. It will be able to manage its global security system, and closely monitor staff safety at each location, from its London headquarters. Access control reporting will, for example, show that drivers have arrived safely, and CCTV footage will enable offices to be viewed from across the world.
Flexibility for each site
Some Deliveroo sites are in areas where staff need more robust protection. AEOS gives the flexibility to adapt security settings and solutions according to the site, while still adhering to a central security policy. Deliveroo can, for example, choose which identifiers its staff can use at each site, and can easily change this whenever it chooses to.
Scale locally and globally
AEOS also scales easily – both at individual sites and across new locations. So as Deliveroo continues to grow, its security system can too. Over the coming months, AEOS will be installed at Deliveroo sites in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels, with sites in Madrid, Melbourne and Singapore following soon afterwards.
