We have been pioneering vertical transportation since Schindler was founded in 1874. We do this by drawing on a strong culture and a legacy of innovation, and we continue to drive forward new solutions and technologies that keep the world moving, while helping to improve the quality of life in cities.
Our Digital Twin accelerates every stage of the value chain of elevators and escalators – from planning to operation and maintenance – through digital modelling and simulations. Virtual prototyping and analytics are applied in every phase of product development for continuous improvements in quality and safety for passengers and technicians alike. A next stage will include using Digital Twin for data insight, realizing the full potential of AI.
Our ActionBoard enables full transparency on every unit in a customer’s portfolio. And our Technical Operation Centers (TOCs) provide real-time support via a global, interconnected network of technical specialists and data analysts working side by side to turn data analytics into tailored, concrete actions that benefit the customer.
We have created a suite of mobile apps and services for our Schindler PORT technology that enables smoother people flow in buildings by reducing waiting times and congestion.
Authorized users can navigate entire building complexes to personalized destinations using only a smartphone, badge, or simple IT interface.
As health and well-being have become even more important, clean and touchless operation as well as passenger space solutions are part of our offering.
The solutions include smartphone apps for touchless elevator operation, advanced transit management, air purification systems and UV-light sanitization, as well as options to limit passenger numbers.
Our elevators are becoming platforms for engaging communication – channels that can be serviced and managed from a single source. They can share spectacular entertainment and important information with passengers every day. We’re turning ordinary elevator rides into memorable experiences.
Our new modular elevator generation provides seamless and interactive passenger experience, also thanks to enhanced design. It gives architects increased design freedom and providing building owners with instant performance tracking in real time.
The new range also enables adaptive maintenance, reducing downtime of the units, while integrating Schindler PORT.
All these new functionalities are channeled via leading cyber-security standards.
Today, buildings are not only growing taller and wider, they are also growing much faster. To meet these increasingly challenging demands on installation schedules, we provide the fastest elevator installation method to date: our revolutionary robotic installation system, Schindler R.I.S.E.
And not only is it faster, with Schindler R.I.S.E, the installation team is relieved from the physically demanding, repetitive, and time-consuming tasks, which improves safety in a taxing work environment.
BuildingMinds, our Berlin-based startup, lays the foundation for the adoption of artificial intelligence in smart buildings.
Using an integrated cloud platform, BuildingMinds provides actionable insights that address efficiency, value generation, and decarbonization strategies of real estate portfolios. This is an important contribution for the transformation of the industry toward more sustainable building management.
