When it comes to securing your business or property, you can never be too safe. Security guards play a key role in ensuring the safety of people and property, but how do you ensure that they’re doing their job as efficiently and effectively as possible? This is a question that OMS Group recently sought to answer by investing in the GuardTour system, a state-of-the-art patrol monitoring solution that improves the efficiency and effectiveness of security guard patrols. In this blog post, we’ll explore the features of the GuardTour system and how it can benefit facilities managers in multiple ways.
The GuardTour system, a cutting-edge solution, organized around a central control system that captures real-time data of security guard activities. The system utilizes portable GPS trackers that security guards wear to track their patrol routes in real-time. This eliminates the necessity to rely on manual reports, which risk the chance of errors or fraud. The system provides detailed reports on patrol activities, location history, and time spent on each of the patrol routes. As a facility manager, you can easily know whether a guard has missed a checkpoint or deviated from a given route.
Besides, the GuardTour System has an instant alert notification feature that sends real-time information to the control center every time a guard triggers an alarm or an incident occurs while on patrol. With this feature, the control center can respond immediately in case of an emergency positively. Through these alerts, the system assists in preventing security incidents before they escalate while assuring clients and staff that their safety is a priority.
The GuardTour system also makes the job of reviewing patrol data a breeze. As you know, reviewing paper-based patrol reports can be both time-consuming and inefficient, but with the GuardTour system, all the data is stored in a database, making it easily accessible and retrievable. The system automatically generates detailed and customizable reports showing patrol routes, checkpoints, timesheets, dropped checkpoints, and other relevant details, thus making the review and assessment process quicker and more accurate.
Another essential feature of the GuardTour system is the ease of integration into the existing software systems. The system is designed with open APIs that can link to other safety and security equipment and solutions. By integrating with other software equipment, the GuardTour system provides improved operational efficiency, enhanced reporting and data analysis capabilities while integrating into the existing security ecosystem.
In conclusion, the GuardsTour system presents real value to facility managers seeking to improve their security infrastructure. By providing real-time data, instant alerts, and easy reporting, the system streamlines the security guard’s job, allowing facility managers to amplify their security services’ quality and assure the safety of employees, clients, and assets. OMS Group recognized this value and invested in the system to enhance service delivery and quality assurance for its clients while improving its security services’ efficiency.
