Handling tickets, badges and garage door remote controls is a nuisance, both for users and for technical service providers. ACUBE uses the smartphone for easier access and automatic payment. Thanks to the combination of a patented proximity positioning system with a mobile app, misplaced tickets and embarrassing arm-stretching maneuvers in front of the parking garage barrier will soon be a thing of the past.
What inspired you to start your company?
The desire to create a product that will change and improve the way we live.
What entrepreneur(s) do you admire and why?
Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk for their strong persistence and vision. They all created something that had a significant impact on their domains.
Can you tell us a short story about a customer using your product?
Remember the last time you arrived inside a parking lot. In front of the entry gate, you had to: stop your car, turn down your window, pull out your arm, stretch it, push a button, take a paper ticket and hold it. This system is 64 years old!
With our handsfree mobile access system, you just approach the entry gate and it will open like magic. Same for exit. That’s it!
What do you love about your own leadership role in your company?
The freedom of choice and the responsibility for the company’s development.
Why did you apply for the W.A. de Vigier Award?
The award’s prestige, the great prize and the opportunity to expand our network.
What are your impressions so far about the W.A. de Vigier Award? Serious and demanding, with particular interest in the company’s leading person which I find a very interesting and good approach.
