Upgrade RiTA to ARX

Upgrade to a modern system - reuse the materials you have already invested in

When Solid unveiled RiTA a good 20 years ago, the idea was to offer a high-quality system that could grow with the user and was based on the latest technology. There is no doubt that we succeeded: we have installed over 4,000 systems, the largest of which involve thousands of doors and tens of thousands of users. RiTA still fares well competitively, but a great deal has happened in the computer world since 1985, and it is not possible to keep building on old solutions forever.

Our successor to RiTA is called ARX. ARX is based on today's modern network solutions and programming languages. We have, of course, incorporated all the experience gained from our 20 years with RiTA, but we have also dared to think innovatively to create a system that has the features needed to meet current and future requirements in terms of IT policy, security, functionality and integratability in the best conceivable way.

Executive interview IFSEC 2012

Watch the video interview with senior executives from ASSA ABLOY for a unique insight into company strategy.At IFSEC 2012, we took the opportunity to interview our senior executives about what to expect from ASSA ABLOY in the next 12 months.

Johan Molin, President and CEO, made the observation that an impressive 20% of revenue now comes from new products (up from 10% last year). The target is to reach 25%.  This is the direct result of ASSA ABLOY’s strategy of innovation, particularly in the area of mobile security.

Ulf Södergren, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer explained that convenience is always at the forefront of product development at ASSA ABLOY.

“If it is convenient to open a door and lock a door, then a door is going to be locked.  If it is not convenient, then the door will be left open,” he said.

Tzachi Wiesenfeld, Executive Vice President and head of the EMEA region, highlighted the growing cooperation between different companies within the ASSA ABLOY group.  In future, ASSA ABLOY, HID and the other members of the group will work even closer together to produce highly innovative secure solutions with a great level of convenience for the user.
