The challenge

5,000 staff

BMCE Bank looks after approximately 2 million bank accounts in Morocco. They have a specialized network of more than 560 branches, including 20 business centres and a corporate branch. The bank also manages more than 600 ATMs.

They sought a security upgrade for their headquarters in Casablanca.

Glass doors

As part of a complete overhaul of its headquarters’ security arrangements, BMCE needed a wireless locking technology to provide 50 glass doors with an instant upgrade to access control.

The bank did not want any compromises on aesthetics.

The solution

Easy installation

Easy to install, ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio cylinders enabled a simple security upgrade from the mechanical systems in place.

BMCE now has sleek access control via a wireless locking solution.


With Aperio’s flexible design and ability to work with iCLASS®, MIFARE®  Plus and MIFARE DESFire® technology credentials, there was no issue with compatibility. Aperio devices instantly connected to the existing online access control system at BMCE Bank.

Installation needed minimal modification to doors and premises.
