NEC and ALSOK improve YAZAKI employee parking experience in Vietnam

Improvement is part of YAZAKI’s digital transformation efforts to optimize operations

HANOI, Vietnam, July 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NEC Vietnam (NEC) and local partner, ALSOK Vietnam Security Services JSC (ALSOK), have announced the deployment of NEC’s Smart Bike Parking solution at YAZAKI Hai Phong Vietnam (YAZAKI)’s Thai Binh factory to improve the employee experience and provide smarter and safer parking management.

In Vietnam, commuting to work by motorcycle or scooter is commonplace. However, before implementing NEC’s smart parking solution, YAZAKI staff had to be stationed at the entrance, issue physical tickets to each rider and manage the entry and exit flow. This manual process was prone to error and other issues.

In order to resolve this, NEC, in cooperation with its local partner ALSOK, implemented the Smart Bike Parking solution featuring NEC’s world leading face-recognition technology* supported with smart staff cards. Both NEC and ALSOK enabled this digital transformation at YAZAKI by optimizing the parking process through digitalizing and automating the entry and exit process, which has contributed to a better employee experience and safer, sustainable management of parking.

NEC’s Smart Bike Parking Solution

Mr. Naoto Hamatani, General Director, NEC Vietnam, said, “While YAZAKI’s main HQ in Japan is using a similar solution operated by NEC, there is a distinct difference between the needs of each location, and it would have been challenging to replicate the identical solution here. By adopting an open, collaborative approach with YAZAKI and ALSOK, we were able to fully understand the unique challenges faced by YAZAKI, which proved immensely useful when it came to the deployment.

“This Smart Bike Parking solution is just one of the many ways NEC’s world-leading biometrics technology can be used. NEC aims to contribute to sustainable factory operations by helping organizations to achieve their digital transformation goals of improved operational efficiency through “co-creation” with customers and partners.”

A spokesperson from ALSOK Vietnam said, “We are pleased to play a role in digitalizing YAZAKI’s parking system and to support their wider transformation efforts. We share NEC’s goal of improving society through digital transformation, and hope to continue extending this partnership by developing and implementing solutions that contribute to the safety and security of our customers.”

A spokesperson from YAZAKI Vietnam said, “As a result of this parking solution, our employees are now happier, safer and more productive. We couldn’t have asked for better partners than NEC and ALSOK, who have been very open throughout our discussions, and have made sure the solution meets our needs. We want to continue to digitalize and will look to NEC and ALSOK to provide ongoing support.”
