As the economic shockwaves of the coronavirus pandemic continue to impact us all, it’s paramount for businesses to minimise running costs as to ensure profit margins remain lucrative. As a security company, we know well that the cost of security solutions can be a pressure on business, especially small businesses or those in their infancy.
When envisioning of security services most people immediately jump to manned guarding—the type where a security guard will remain vigilant on location. Although manned guarding is one of the most steadfast security services out there, the hourly rates it incurs can quickly become crippling for smaller businesses.
Fortunately, there are alternatives—the most universal of which being Mobile Security Patrols.
What sets Mobile Security Patrols apart from more traditional types of guarding is that they see security guards check on the site at regular intervals, instead of remaining permanently on-site. What’s more is that during their designated operating hours the security guards would also provide lightning-fast response to any alarm activations or keyholder needs.
For example, if you were looking to get your site secured overnight, a uniformed mobile security patrol would arrive on and survey the site numerous times each night. And, in the case of an alarm or keyholding need, the security guards would immediately travel to the site.
Instead of requiring an hourly rate, mobile security patrols are provided for set prices per visit.
Most clearly, this can help reduce overall costs incurred by hourly rates. But more importantly this allows you to gain full control over your security—giving you the ability to find the perfect balance to fulfil your security needs and while remaining well within budget.
