An organization’s responsibility to securing its property and interest does not end with contacting a Security Company. After spending time and resources on evaluating multiple Security Guard Companies, the one that responds most accurately to organizations needs is chosen. Prior to beginning the services, the security firm and the organization’s management develop and structure a detailed security plan with instructions, protocol, procedures & guidelines, & Post orders. Keeping up with all of that can get overwhelming when running a company, however, with the right management & oversight software, business owners have access to real-time information regarding what their guards are downing 24 hours a day.
The right guard management & oversight software allows all relevant stakeholders to have real-time access to vital information about the activities on site. Typically guard management & oversight software provides clients with an electronic activity reporting, guard patrol & vehicle GPS tracking, attendance history, and just about everything else you may need to effectively manage the operations of a security guard company.
Furthermore, these platforms are often highly customizable. Some software like Secure Track from Secure Guard Security Services can even link up multiple departments of client into their integrated guard management & oversight software. For a large property, the overnight guard can send a message to the maintenance department for a light that’s out on a floor, email the client’s operations manager his nightly activity report, and request a day off from his supervisor all on the same platform.
Automating your internal systems is the biggest benefit of using a Guard Management & oversight software. From daily activity reports, incident reports, GPS coordinates, scheduling, and all management to guard communication can be performed on most these platforms. Highly customizable platforms allow Security Companies to automate even more processes.
Having a centralized platform that supports almost every aspect of your operation is a great asset to any Security Guard Company. Most guard companies have different platforms dedicated to different activities. Once fully integrated, a Guard Management & Oversight software can save the firm operational and management overhead costs in the long-run.
Another great asset for those companies that use a guard management & oversight software is that management at your firm and your client’s firm can make data drive decisions. Offering true real time analytics to your client will separate the services your company providers from other Guard Service Providers.
