Running a property is a big responsibility.

It can be fun, but it can also be challenging in many ways.

You deal with all sorts of things.

From unhappy customers to disgruntled employees to vandalism, and even felonies.

Although you never know what you’re going to encounter daily, you do know there is always something.

You might even find it overwhelming.

It’s your duty to keep your property and the people on it safe, though, right?

But, that’s not always easy.

If you don’t have the resources to take care of business, it makes it worse.

Proactive operations know this.

They have systems and processes in place to handle it all.

Do you?

Do you have the right tools in place to manage any situation that could occur on your property?

Would you even know what to expect or how to respond when the time comes?

If you’re uneasy about today’s article – we get it!

It’s not the most comfortable feeling to face the fact that your operation has weaknesses.

But, we’re going to help you out today to get your Proactive Operations juices flowing.

We want to share four different scenarios of what could occur on your property, and how the right software can help you change the outcome for the better.

How does that sound?

We talk accountability like we’re experts in the matter.

The truth is…we’re not.

We just listen to what the experts are saying.

One of the common challenges faced by managers that we hear quite often is execution.

Another is not being able to prove it.

You know it’s happening, but a significant obstacle is in front of you.

A black hole of checklists, work orders, and fragmented processes prevent you from identifying your problem employees.

Equipment inspection software enhances your operation and makes tracking accountability doable.

You can be a leader in any operation, airports to sports, to receive the value offered by such a solution.

That’s what this article’s about.

We’re not here to do a feature dump on equipment inspection software, but to explain the ways you as a professional can identify your team’s weaknesses and fix them.

Here’s a fact, unless you position your organization to track accountability purposefully there’ll be no light at the end of this tunnel.

Would you say it’s time to change that?

We say it’s time for you to stop stressing over the employees hindering your team’s performance.

There’s a solution. We’re not talking the software’s functionality itself, but what it allows you to do.

This is unquestionably important – and there’s a difference.

A solution’s value derives from the ability to hold your staff accountable for their performance and to have the documentation to back it up.

It’s a simple concept with extraordinary impact.

Do you oversee operations at a convention center?

If you’re charged with any role at one, you know that processes, people, and information are vital to your efficiency.

Your role doesn’t matter either.

You’re still tasked with making sure your property is running smoothly and looking good.

Location inspection software can quickly enhance your operation to help you achieve both.

We’re going to show you how this software solution augments your property’s efficiency.

  • Improve execution and accountability of staff and the control of information between all of your departments.

As a leader of your convention center, the safety, experience, and lasting impression you create for your guests, always rests on your shoulders.

Do you agree?

These solutions help. And, we’re going to show you how.

It’s time to increase efficiency at your property using location inspection software.

Are you ready for Proactive Operations?

“I’m tired of this,” you growl.

“We’ve got so many different types of incidents to deal with and even more inefficiencies,” you grumble.

Your second-in-command, Nick, has approached you in the past about making drastic operational improvements, so he lets you rant in hopes that today you have an epiphany.

You start listing everything wrong with your operation. Nick smiles.

  • “Confusing procedures prevent efficiency and effectiveness.”
  • “Incident calls get overlooked due to lack of resources and time to respond.”
  • “Incomplete documentation leads to legal battles and finger-pointing.”
  • “Radio traffic clogs communication lines and prevents the exchange of critical information.”
  • “No one is aware of the things that I know are occurring.”

You finally stop, because you realize this list can go on and on.

Nick looks at you, picks up his dry erase marker, and takes control.

“We’ve got incident after incident, and some are different – some are the same. But, there is a common thread that I believe valuable solutions can help with immediately,” he states.

Nick continues that “our overall performance is directly related to our team’s ability to,” and he writes these four factors on the dry erase board:

  • Quickly respond to incidents
  • Complete accurate and digital reports
  • Check off pertinent inspection items
  • Report potential hazards

You interrupt him before he can justify, “I couldn’t agree more. Now, what do we do?”

In the recent CNN article “Dreamworld accident: 2 children survive fatal theme park malfunction” written by Euan McKirdy, Rebecca Wright, and James Masters, the writers share the tragic results of Dreamworld’s most recent ride malfunction.

“Two children survived a deadly ride malfunction at Australia's largest theme park, which killed four people on Tuesday.”

According to the article, “Police said Wednesday, a boy, and a girl, aged 10 and 12, were able to ‘extricate themselves,' in what Brian Codd, Assistant Commissioner for Southeast Region of Queensland Police Service, described as "almost a miracle.”

McKirdy, Wright, and Masters’ article describe that “Six people were riding on a ‘flume’ at the Thunder River Rapids Ride at Dreamworld theme park in Queensland when the malfunction occurred. Their flume flipped after it came into contact with another carriage towards the end of the ride, tossing some of the passengers onto the conveyor belt, where they were caught in the machinery, Codd said on Wednesday morning.”

Codd shares that “the two children are traumatized and being cared for by their family, adding they were lucky to be alive.”

“Help!”

The shouting you hear is coming from your head. You’re overwhelmed with the responsibility of managing multiple properties.

Not only are you in charge of overseeing many properties, but also many different types of properties, ranging from office buildings to construction sites.

Your security teams must be alert and ready for any scenario to occur. The potential issues and incidents can range from disgruntled employees to severe crimes like assault.

“This is becoming too much to manage,” you tell your regional security director, Dan. Dan leads the Midwest and has been with your organization for 17 years.

You look at him as your go-to guy. He knows what he’s doing, and he also knows the security landscape always changes.

“I see the need for drastic improvements in our technology,” Dan says. “Now is a good time to look into incident management, guard tour, and inspection software for our properties,” he continues. “Most important, solutions that we can manage from wherever we are,” he adds.
