Samsic UK is launching an integrated security operations and workforce management platform after trials at client, Pladis Global.
At a time when higher focus is being put on digital tools for remote working, Samsic is rolling an end-to-end remote security monitoring and management solution.
SamTech is an app-accessed cloud-based platform which aggregates the management of mobile patrolling and guarding.
Its functionality ranges from paperless time and attendance reporting and payroll processing to affording clients a single view into security staffing, operations and compliance via its live dashboard.
Driven by Samsic’s Global Security Operations Centre, the system monitors and controls all sites, centralises incident reporting, and standardises threat analysis and benchmarking.
Live alerts keep officers in the field up-to-date with notifications including text, photos and videos, and ensure guard coverage at all times. GPS and NFC technologies support security officer and lone-worker protection as well as team accountability, assisting productivity and efficiency.
Clients can view security personnel qualifications, training and certification status, ensuring contract compliance. Data collected by the platform is easily aggregated and analysed for benchmarking and reporting. Reports can be customized to meet clients’ requirements and shared with all stakeholders.
Samsic has been providing site and operations security to confectionery and snacks maker, Pladis’s manufacturing and distribution sites since 2003.
In late 2019, testing commenced of SamTech by the security and client management teams at Pladis to assess its day-to-day functionality and performance as well as the accuracy and quality of reporting capabilities. Eighteen months on, and the platform is now full operational at Pladis.
The trials revealed the system to be a highly effective tool in migrating security management at the sites from a physical, paper-based process in information gathering and dissemination to a digital alternative delivering real-time processes.
Says Samsic UK Security Director, Andrew Hallam:
“Centralising management and reporting into a digitally-driven process brings cost and productivity benefits to provider and client. SamTech paves the way for managing site security faster and more effectively with operational transparency monitored, any time, any day and unsurpassed until now.”
