G4S Estonia Chooses GuardTools

G4S Estonia Chooses GuardTools 1


G4S Estonia has started to use the Swedish GuardTools system for patrols, alarms and risk management throughout their organization.
– GuardTools not only makes us quicker and smarter, it also helps us to prepare for the future needs of our customers, says Villu Õun, Head of the Guarding division and board member at G4S Estonia.

There were not many digital solutions on the market for manned guarding and facility management when GuardTools was launched 15 years ago. Today there are plenty but very few have the features needed to perform large-scale quality security operations: complex permission systems, smart automation, reliable communications and risk management solutions.

– GuardTools is truly the next level of operations support that will strengthen our leading position in terms of quality-assured processes and increased value of our services, says Reiko Tääker, Director of Service and Security Operation Centre.

– We’ve gone through the options on the market and GuardTools is clearly the best option for us. I was particularly impressed with the new GuardTools Command & Control for our alarm receiving centre, says Kristjan Mikk, Service Developer Manager at G4S.

A Pioneering Research Project

GuardTools grew out of the first scientific study of manned guarding that combined ethnographic research and software development. The research findings led to the GuardTools Mobile app, followed by components for administration, static guarding and statistics.

This year sees another innovation to the security market: GuardTools Command & Control (GTCC). It is the first software for alarm receiving centres and security operations centers that deeply connects the guards in the field with the operator in the ARC/SOC. It is a milestone for the GuardTools system and part of the original vision of the founder, Peter Andreasson.

– We’ve always believed in enabling people and technology to do what they do best and bring them together. When the eyes and ears on the field can easily collaborate with the operators and their data intelligence in the ARC, you get an outstanding situational awareness, says Peter Andreasson, founder and CEO.
