Emergency SOS button for the security persons for any emergency situations
Today’s modern real-time security guard tracking systems are largely dependent on GPS technology and device integration. A security guard tracking program that is compatible with smartphones and tablets gives guards a line of communication with back office staff while also ensuring the reliability of GPS tracking — all while using devices they are already familiar with.
9trax Device typically allows office staff to set up digital checkpoints along a guard’s patrol. With a smart tracking system, checkpoints can be fully customized by the office staff, activating automatically when a guard reaches a particular location during their patrol. No on-site equipment setup or installation is required. Furthermore, checkpoints can prompt for customized questions specific to the asset that is being verified thus allowing for very specific data to be accumulated.
Upon reaching a checkpoint, guards can use their device to scan barcodes, QR codes, or even NFC tokens. The system automatically records when a guard checks in at a particular location, ensuring that the information is relayed accurately even if the guard’s device temporarily loses service. If a guard does not go to a required checkpoint, a notification is sent to back office staff indicating that the route was not completed as required. Notifications can also be sent when a guard arrives late at a checkpoint.
Using 9trax one can track your guards, conduct paperless reporting and create schedules
In addition to these mechanisms, most real-time security guard tracking systems also implement measures that streamline communications between guards in the field and management. Guards can use their 9trax device to submit incident reports, request assistance via SOS OR CALL to pre configure mobile numbers, while the office team can submit escalation orders, client requests, and other vital communications. These messages will appear in the same app the guard uses to scan checkpoints, ensuring that instructions are received in a timely manner.
The biggest benefits come from improvements in compliance, efficiency, and accountability. Real-time GPS tracking enables the automation of much of the reporting process, eliminating human error by ensuring that checkpoint information is recorded quickly and accurately. This helps ease some of the burden on the guards, while also giving them a greater sense of ownership for their responsibilities. Real-time security guard tracking also ensures that back office staff is alerted the moment a compliance or safety issue occurs. If a guard doesn’t check in at a required checkpoint or enters a restricted area, live alerts enable management to take immediate action.
SXtreo 9trax device gives management confidence that their messages are being received with real-time order acknowledgement. If management has a question for a guard currently on patrol, they can be assured of a rapid response, via SOS or call, a real-time tracking system will naturally increase guard compliance, ensuring better results for your clients. Perhaps even more importantly, the automatic transmission of data subsequently makes it easier to analyze site information so you and your clients can make smarter security decisions. This in turn makes it easy to demonstrate your value to your clients, improving retention rates and allowing you to drive further growth for your business.
The 9trax app can be downloaded on smartphones and is available through the Google Play Store. It is also available for computers and laptops.
