MONTREAL, QC, CANADA – November 23, 2010 KABA the provider of Saflok and ILCO electronic locks, announced it enhanced the service and support capabilities of its Saflok and ILCO support websites.   The enhancements increase KABA’s training, installation and support capability for its expanding international family of Saflok and ILCO dealers and clients in Latin America and elsewhere.  New features include online multi-lingual documentation and training materials.

KABA Selected for Largest Hotel Project in Panama
Extending its Latin American presence, KABA was recently tapped for the largest hotel project in Panama.  It also completed its first Saflok electronic door lock installation in Brazil, and began its third construction installation for Mayan Properties in Mexico.
KABA recognized the need for on-site support and it invested resources to build and implement a network of local service and support professionals.  Each Latin American KABA distributor sells, installs, trains, and professionally supports hospitality operators in their countries.  If a problem arises, a KABA distributor can be at a hotel within the same day.
The enhanced Saflok and ILCO support websites have over 10,000 registered users who utilize its expanded services.  Dealers and clients access the sites’ complete portfolio of training videos, support instruction, and multi-lingual documentation offerings from a secured login page to quickly resolve technical and implementation issues and get professional answers to questions. 
KABA is known internationally for reliability and service
“KABA is known internationally for its reliability and service, and our new web-based training, service and support modules are valuable additions our dealers and users can utilize anytime, anywhere," said Goran Necak, vice president of International Sales for KABA. “The Latin American hotel market is expanding rapidly and KABA’s combination of local professional support and installation services and online training are essential to every operator."
KABA recognizes hotels and their guests have high expectations of service, and that hotel operators view service as the key differentiator.  “With our Latin American expansion, KABA stands alone in its investment and dedication to localized service,” Necak said.
