Security Industry News from around Australia - and the world.
We'd like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021.
A special shout out to all of our valued clients - it's a pleasure working with you all!
Stay safe - and let's hope the new year brings a return to some form of normality for everyone.
No one could have predicted what 2020 had in store for us all.
COVID-19 threw life, business and the economy upside down.
The security industry faced significant challenges - pubs and clubs were shut, events and stadiums came to a halt - but Security was deployed in huge numbers - to protect toilet paper in supermarkets!
What impressed us was how our clients adapted - especially our event and hospitality clients. They met the challenges head on and made the best of the circumstances to survive - if not thrive!
As with so many businesses, we were unsure how the year would unfold for us.
But 2020 has proved to be a year of very strong growth of our client base and very positive product development.
The unwelcome spotlight on the security industry as a result of the hotel quarantine inquiry highlighted the importance of compliance and quality operational systems - and importantly, the expectations of end users (our clients' clients) rose - with proof of service being the focus.
Securecy is built on compliance, transparency and quality reporting - including, and especially, proof of service.
It all contributed to a sharp increase in enquiry and we're happy to have on-boarded a large number of new clients all around Australia.
In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we reviewed our pricing and are happy to have been able to provide a price reduction - especially for our larger clients.
Pricing starts at just 99 cents per active guard per week (a guard completing at least one shift for the week).
Call us on 1300 564 990 for more details.
One of the many unique features of Securecy is our Mobile Patrol module.
While there are numerous patrol apps, they are all stand alone systems.
Securecy's patrol module fully integrates with all parts of the system... HR, rostering, time and attendance, payroll, billing, messaging and guard inductions.
Recently, we've added and enhanced functionality including:
• More accurate GPS
• Map directions to site (via Apple or Google maps)
• Automated scheduled client reports
• Live tracking
• Priority stops
• Exception report for missed patrol visits
• Improved alarm response functions
• Scan a QR code to check in at the site
• Bulk adding and deletion of patrol stops
• Detailed patrol notes including images (eg. site maps)
We've been working closely with many of our clients to enhance the user interface and introduce some new features.
We're looking forward to releasing the new roster update early in 2021.
While stadiums have been closed or operating with reduced numbers, we've been working on some enhancements to our unique stadium management module, including our digital managed sign on register.
We're also working on digital deployment - so no more spreadsheets! Watch this space!
We're looking forward to seeing stadiums and events emerge bigger and better in 2021!
Securecy has revolutionised workforce management for highly regulated industries.
We have pioneered multiple digital processes to replace legacy systems and paperwork.
And development never stops.
We have some exciting projects on the go - including a new staff welfare process, more comprehensive staff inductions and plenty more... stay tuned!
