Technological innovations have further enabled customers to plug in additional services using the power of open application programming interfaces (APIs). These make integrating devices, apps and services much simpler. Thus, KONE taps into digitization to offer infotainment options during elevator rides and enhanced elevator music to develop emotional connections. With its ergonomic designs ranging from nature-inspired walls to futuristic lights to modern heritage designs inspired by classics, KONE elevators give a feeling of connectedness to those who step into the elevator for the first time.
Adding more about KONE’s unique operational philosophy, Amit Gossain, Managing Director of the company states, “We understand that inclusivity in elevators is important. Our collaboration with Blindsquare and the underlying IoT approach to elevators allows visually impaired users to call elevators via voice control. Underlying these technologies is the philosophy to adopt sustainable solutions that focus on low energy costs using materials that use less carbon footprint. These ideologies create a backdrop for our products and services, which include KONE DX class elevators, KONE People Flow Planning and Consulting, and KONE 24/7 connected services. Also, our flexible KONE Care maintenance programme is designed to ensure that our equipment operates safely and reliably while also extending its lifespan”.
