7 Points to Maximise the Value of Working with Manned Security Guards

At Magenta Security we are highly experienced at providing extra value. We enable security provision to deliver a positive return on investment for our customers. This is achieved by maximising operations continuity, minimising losses and adding operations value by seamlessly integrating with our customer’s on-site operations and team. We step in to assist with tasks beyond the traditional security scope without compromising the quality of protection.

Here are some points that we have learned and use when providing added-value security services for our customers.

1. High quality preparation = high quality outcomes. The details matter and make a difference to the value added. Properly defining the nature of the security threats and risks on sight is a critical step in identifying the specification of the security provision to be provided. There are no short cuts to doing this effectively. This translates into valuable outcomes in the form of lack of disruption to any operations on site and damage to property and losses being minimised.

2. Identifying and agreeing what security success looks like for each site. Then identifying how it’ll be measured, reported and managed.

3. Properly training and managing security staff. The higher the quality of training and management of the security staff, the higher the value of the outcomes they produce.

4. Matching and integrating the security staff with the customer’s operations and team on site. This puts them in a position to add extra value when the opportunity arises; for example, when the team is short of staff and tasks need to be covered temporarily.

5. Using technology to increase the value of the service provided and the support from supervisors. Geo-location technology is being increasingly used to track the movements of security staff versus the agreed plan. Any variances are alerted and managed in real time.

6. Security service provision that responds to the evolving security threats as the business changes, grows and expands.

7. Contribute to the achievement of sustainability objectives and goals.
