There are many factors that can affect productivity in an office such as healthy work ethics and efficient work schedule. Yet, there is one factor that does not get highlighted enough: the right lighting. Aksel Kreasi Utama (AKU) is a company that has the competency in this field.
“We have been in the lighting business since 2002 when the group was appointed as the first Professional Channel Partner of Philips,” says Hendra Rusmana Liu, managing director of AKU. Their clients were from the government segment in Jabodetabek area, with projects such as road lighting and city beautification. They have since 2013 shifted into the commercial and industrial segments with clients from retail, building management, and many more.
Partnering with Signify, they recently launched a new system called Interact Pro. It is an integrated system consisting of lamps, a gateway, a control dashboard and an app, connected with the power of Internet of Things (IoT). It is designed to enhance productivity in a way that the lamps are easily adjusted to the workers’ behaviour, which can increase the level of comfort and durability. It saves energy by automatically dimming or shutting down the lights in areas with no detected activity, which will reduce electricity cost and support sustainability.
AKU’s market is evolving rapidly towards green energy and building. They extend the competency to deliver energy efficiency and maintain aftersales services. They have expanded their presence from Jabodetabek further to Surabaya and Bali. With such innovative products that they are distributing and a complete service, you can expect to see them grow extensively in the future.
