Not only creating elevators with the basic function of connecting floors, KONE Vietnam always innovates to create breakthrough solutions, building a new era of digital transformation for elevators.

This is evident in the KONE DX class elevators, which was officially introduced in Vietnam in April 2022. In addition to improved interiors, customisable and elegant lighting, smart materials also keep elevators clean, reducing impact.

In particular, cloud computing technology through API connection helps users to actively press the floor selection button via the phone, display information in the elevator in real time, and a multimedia entertainment screen will help enhance the user experience to the next level.

KONE DX elevators are also designed to suit the needs and characteristics of each project. In addition, KONE Vietnam is committed to providing solutions and services to help customers achieve environmentally friendly ‘green building’ targets throughout all phases of the building life cycle, from design, construction to maintenance and upgrading.

To better serve customers, KONE Vietnam has recently introduced the newly renovated KONE Experience Centre with the latest technology such as KONE DX Class digital elevator, KONE 24/7 Connected service, KONE API service includes API elevator call, API service robot, and API equipment status.

“This is a recognition for KONE's pioneering initiatives accompanying Vietnam on the journey of smart and sustainable city development. We are proud to be the only elevator company that offers practical solutions for smart city development in Vietnam,” said Bas Degeling, managing director of KONE Vietnam.

“This award also encourages us to work with Vietnamese software companies to improve integration into KONE DX's solution ecosystem. By working closely together, we can develop and deliver solutions tailored to the needs of users in Vietnam to improve people flow in smart buildings, contributing to the construction of urban areas in the whole country towards a smarter, more sustainable and livable future.”
