Public Safety

Perceived safety is not the same as actual safety and public safety is often about perceptions rather than facts. But it is crucial to have the right facts, to be able to address those perceptions in the best way possible. This is where GuardTools comes into the picture.

Public Safety 1

Situational Awareness

GuardTools is the first system with a profound digital connection between the field and the alarm receiving centre (ARC) or security operations centre (SOC). Security guards and alarm operators collaborate easily with the reliable communication channels. The eyes and ears on the field combined with the operator’s access to extra information forms an ideal situational awareness.

  • Push to Talk for instant voice communication
  • Panic alarm in case of emergencies
  • Realtime visual information in GuardTools Command & Control

Prove Your Efficiency

GuardTools documents your work as statistical data, presented in several accessible forms. GuardTools can generate automatic reports customized to each recipient according to permissions. The data is available in real-time on GuardTools Web and it is easy to generate longitudinal statistics. In other words, GuardTools makes it easy for you to show your efficiency and to take proactive decisions based on hard facts.

  • Customized reports that are easy to understand
  • GuardTools Web for real-time info

Proactive Decision Making

From the very beginning, GuardTools was built to support informed and proactive decisions. Instead of reacting after the fact, proactive decisions use data and statistics to predict future events and act on them before the fact. In line with broken windows theory, GuardTools allows you to act on for example vandalism so it does not escalate.

  • GuardTools Mobile encourages guards to create data
  • Quality statistics over long periods of time
  • Detailed and measurable data

Your Data – Your Decisions

With GuardTools you can delegate data responsibilities to the companies that you hire, or you can manage it on your own. When you own and manage the data yourself you get more control. Whatever happens, you will always be able to access planning, statistics and other information.

The GuardTools System

Five key components make up the GuardTools total solution. They can be scaled and combined according to your needs, but a typical configuration is to use GuardTools Office (for administration), GuardTools Mobile (for guarding) and GuardTools Web (for statistics). On top of this you can add GuardTools Command & Control to your alarm receiving centre (ARC) or security operations centre (SOC). Finally, GuardTools Static is designed specifically for static guarding on fixed locations.
