It takes time to train your staff.

But, time also poses a challenge – and inefficient processes bite into it.

You have staff that comes and goes, which makes training and staying on top of everyone’s responsibilities a struggle.

Everything changes daily.

Some of this headache comes from the constant turnover. Much of what you believe to be due to low performing employees.

The other time destroyer is seasonal and part-time staff training.

All of this leaves you overwhelmed.

You feel stuck and behind the eight ball.

Agree?

The effects eventually build up, your property’s operation gets the brunt of it, and this all trickles down to customer service.

Do you see the long-term problem here?

You need a way to ensure that the staff walking your property – hired to keep it safe – are on top of their game.

They must know what they’re doing and be proactive in doing so.

But, you need the confidence that this is true. How do you get it?

That’s where a proactive guard tour system comes to the rescue.

Yes, modern features of a software solution help your team each day. Many of these features are fancy and reduce the time it takes to get the job done.

We get it, but you have to approach your software evaluation in a way that supports long-term value.

It’s more than simple features and benefits!

This year will be the year of the proactive operations platform.

You’re probably wondering how we know this.

Agree?

How can we predict the future?

It’s because operations are motivated to employ Proactive Operations, which makes a proactive operations platform the apparent answer.

You can’t apply the Proactive Operations methodology without the intention of maximizing your efficiency.

There’s no way around it.

A proactive operations platform takes your operation further.

There’s something special about operations management software that can enhance real-time communications, maximize experience, and reduce risk.

A characteristic exists that ‘brings everything together’ to take your property’s operation levels above its current performance state.

Do you know what that quality is?

It’s a unified solution for your property.

Think about it for a moment. How efficient is using multiple tools – from various vendors – to operate?

It’s not efficient in any way.

So many operations are still operating this way.

But, we know 2018 will be the year you move away from this method.

The current approach of using individual tools forces you to maintain a reactive state because you always depend on different applications to perform well.

It also means you’re relying on different vendors to remain effective.

That’s not proactive. That's terrifying. 

Well…

It’s here.

Welcome to 2018.

You want to capitalize on this fresh start.

Your operation is still running, and your team is performing.

The good news is that everything is OK!

But, you want to make it better, right?

So, what are you going to do?

Do you have any New Year’s resolutions for your operation?

Do you have any plans to take your operation to the next level?

We’ve got something you can do.

How about making 2018 the year you maximize the performance of your operation?

You’ve got 12 months ahead of you – let’s make them productive.

Agree? Let’s do this!

We’re going to show you how to employ the world-class methodology operations use.

Do you want Proactive Operations in place?

Then, you need a reliable infrastructure.

It’s a large part of what is required to employ the Proactive Operations methodology.

You can’t hit the level of performance needed without it.

You could have an effective strategy and the right technology.

But, you might miss the mark on your infrastructure.

You’ll still be shy of where you need to be. That’s not good.

Why?

You need all three to be successful.

Now, you probably already know you need to address your infrastructure.

Your communication channels are probably disjointed, you deal with regular bottlenecks, and no one is ever on the same page.

It troubles you, and you’re tired of it, right?

A proactive leader knows to start the process before this year is over, and you’re already into 2018.

You’re ready for a solid foundation going into the New Year.

But, you don’t know where to start – do you?

That’s fine. We’re here to help.

Let’s get you geared up for 2018 by building the foundation you’ll need to achieve and maintain Proactive Operations.

2018 is fast approaching; less than a week away!

Now, you’ve got to find out how fast your team performed all year.

It’ll help you identify what improvements or changes are needed in 2018.

How’s your operation doing?

Are you responding to issues and incidents efficiently and effectively?

Do you have the right amount of resources available?

How are your staffing levels?

Is it time to invest in operations management software?

You need to answer these questions.

But, you’re probably asking yourself, how? Agree?

Don’t stress about it; we’ll save you the guesswork.

You need to use analytics.

You need the ability to capture data (hopefully lots of it) that results in valuable analytics.

Are you in a position to rely on your data? Can you trust it?

You need to close out 2017 and get ready for 2018.

There’s no better day to start than today!

“National Transportation Safety Board investigators are looking into whether the engineer of the Amtrak train that derailed south of Seattle Monday morning may have been distracted by a second Amtrak employee in the cab of the locomotive,” writes David Schaper in his recent NPR article entitled “Derailment Probe Looks At Speed, As Critics Cite Amtrak's 'Lax Safety Culture.”

According to Schaper, “Investigators also are trying to determine why no brakes were activated by the engineer. The emergency brake activated automatically only as part of the train began to go off the rails.”

Schaper continues in his article that “answering those questions may help investigators determine the most important question of all: Why the Amtrak train was speeding along at 80 mph where it derailed — a curve and overpass over Interstate 5 near DuPont, Wash., with a speed limit of just 30 mph.”

What a stressful situation for this crew to handle.

Can you feel the anxiety? We can.

But, that’s not it. There were casualties.
