Securecy - Runner up for ASIAL Product of the year



Securecy has been named runner-up for Product of The Year - Communications at the prestigious 2018 Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL) Awards for Excellence.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to receive the award. We’ve only just launched our product into the broader security market and it’s amazing we’re already receiving such high industry recognition,’ said Chris Hatcher, Securecy Operations Director.
Securecy streamlines compliance, reporting and administration by pulling everything together into the one, cloud-based system.
The platform was developed in collaboration with three security companies.
‘We just love Securecy. It’s made a huge improvement to how we run our business. Everything is now in the one system, and we can log in from anywhere, any time,’ said Chris Hamlin IT Manager of Evolution Security.
When Securecy was first commissioned in 2015 to develop a software platform for the security industry, co-founders Chris Hatcher and Craig Sheppard couldn’t believe security businesses were relying on so many systems and so much paper work.
‘So we built a system from the ground up to pull everything into the one platform, including rostering, licence alerts, electronic reporting and sign on, a mobile patrol module, operational and HR reporting, SMS messaging, inductions, document uploads - in fact everything needed to run a professional security business in line with government regulations and requirements,’ said Mr Hatcher.
Securecy was also the first company to connect to the OneGov database to automatically check security licenses.
‘It has been another huge time saver for our clients and it has vastly improved their compliance,’ said Craig Sheppard, Technical Director of Securecy.
‘It has been a lot of hard work, but the feedback from clients and authorities has been incredible, and we’re excited about taking Securecy to the broader security market’, added Mr Hatcher.
