24/7 Software Blog

If you were asked by your peers to offer them recommendations on how to run their operation, what would you tell them?

Would you know which software is most useful in running a security services operation to its fullest potential?

Are you not sure?

Keep reading; we’ve got you covered.

Two software solutions are critical for security services to implement: a proactive incident management system and a streamlined guard tour system.

Unfortunately, we find too many organizations that are either using less than par incident management and guard tour systems or nothing at all.

Incident management and guard tour systems are two must-know software solutions implemented by world-class organizations.

These companies want to increase their competitive advantage.

So, how do you measure up?

Your security team is tasked with conducting guard tours.

We’re talking about a property that covers 1,000,000+ square feet, multiple entryways, and as many restricted areas as Area 51.

You’re not securing extraterrestrials.

But, there’s no doubt your team is keeping busy. We also know it never ends.

Answer this truthfully:

Does your guard tour system give you the accuracy and efficiency needed to do your job most effectively?

If you’re not sure, that’s OK.

Keep reading, because we’re going to give you the insight you need to choose the right guard tour system for your facility.

We owe you an apology.

We made a sizable mistake.

In our article on choosing a guard tour system for your facility, we stated that “your security team is tasked with conducting guard tours covering 100,000+ square feet, multiple entryways, and more restricted areas than Area 51.”

In fact, we were wrong.

Well, sort of.

We missed a zero!

Yes, it’s true, 100,000+ does cover quite a bit of space.

However, 1,000,000+ square feet of property susceptible to incident overload is more like it!

We’re talking a whole lot of responsibility.

We feel for you, which is why we believe this article on finding the right incident management software for your physical security operation will change your life.

Don’t stop here.

Keep reading, because we promise to show you how you can improve your incident reporting with the right type of incident management system (IMS).

You’re driving home from your most recent event.

Thinking.

Pondering.

Analyzing.

How did it go?

There were a few unexpected incidents, and you were not ready for them.

Those poor part-timers looked petrified by the rush of people during the lightning storm.

You should’ve gone over what exactly to do during a severe weather incident.

Tonight’s event was a little too chaotic for your taste.

What to do, what to do?

What do you do?

When was the last time you had similar thoughts running through your mind after an event?

It must be troubling to experience this on a regular basis knowing there’s more to come.

You use analytics to better respond to incidents.

But, how do you train your employees to better respond to all these incidents you’re aware of?

Read between the lines, and you’ll find the solution: role-playing.

Whether you’re a general manager, director of operations, director of security and parking, or event manager at a convention center – your day starts early.

On event day, it’s a super long day.

You start with emails, check phone messages, and respond to them all.

That’s only the beginning, and you’re probably ready for the door by 10 AM.

Does this sound familiar?

Now you must walk the 1,000,000 plus square foot space you oversee looking at room sets, reviewing floor plans, and confirming pre-conference and post-conference meetings.

You’re busy.

Extremely busy.

The last thing you want to be burdened with and stressing over is your staff doing their job.

Agree?

You want peace of mind knowing they’re checking rooms, putting things in the right place, and checking the “stuff” that needs to be checked.

From one end of your property to the other, you need location inspection software that’s going to help you safeguard staff accountability and strengthen operational processes throughout your convention center.

Today, we’re going to show how location inspection software is the solution that can help your staff efficiently and effectively inspect everything, and with superior accountability in place.

Let’s go!

Communication among personnel is always a challenge.

The chaos that results from bad communication is stressful enough.

But the icing is that it probably has caused you to deal with big hits to your budget as well.

The marketing team oversold their sponsorships, and they’ve decided to let you know – this morning.

Sound familiar?

How do you take control of all the chaos?

How do you begin improving communication among all departments, personnel, and your entire organization while getting the details you need on time?

Poor communication can have disastrous consequences.

Agree?

It’s even worse when it accumulates and affects all areas of your operation.

Right?

Painful – we know.

But, don’t worry.

You can fix it.

Let’s first consider why there may be a breakdown.
