Enhance your security Operations: Why You need a guard Tour System

Public Facilities such as commercial buildings, managed apartments and Hotels are busy with constant movement of people; it should be no surprise that patrolling your facility such as the Reception Lobby, Restaurant, Parking Lot, and Meeting Rooms should be on the top of your priorities list to keep your safety standards high.

Facilities such as managed apartments and hotels have more than one central entrance and supplementary entrances for service facilities management.  Each of these entrances must be inspected thoroughly and scanned consistently for any suspicious movement 24/7.

Short security lapses are all what is needed for Major Security breaches to happen. The biggest headache of security managers is to ensure that their patrol schedules are followed, and that their personnel are regularly inspecting every checkpoint, either by physical presence or via remote monitoring.

Efficient security operations require certain procedures to be performed. As the security operations manager you need to answer to these questions.

  • Do you give detailed checkpoint instructions to your guards?
  • Do you want them to answer a series of questions or go through a checklist after they perform an action?
  • Do your your guards or supervisors submit detailed reports to send to your Monitoring Center?
  • How are these reports submitted?
  • Do you want to keep all checkpoint-related information organized and in one place?
  • Sometimes your Security Personnel face dangerous situations and need to quickly communicate this and get assistance. How does this happen?
  • How do you ensure Key Performance Indicators are achieved and measured?

The list is endless. It is therefore a no brainier that security operations are some of the hardest jobs in the security industry.
