Through our extensive service sector market research, we have found that there is a real demand for technology and software innovation within the security sector. Providing Manned Guarding is a very specialised area and our Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) rating being within the very top scoring echelons in the UK proves that we have real professional credibility within this field. How could we take our coverage and service delivery to the next level?
To dovetail our Manned Guarding and Dual service offerings, we have formed an exciting strategic alliance with a specialised independent protection and surveillance company to bring a unique dimension to the market. What difference has this made to Westgrove’s core capability?
Lone worker Security with specialised software is perhaps our most significant development. Lone workers make up a significant proportion of the UK workforce with 3.3 million in the public sector and a number of private sector industries also relying on staff who work alone. Lone working staff can easily find themselves in vulnerable situations and we have a moral and legal duty of care towards them. From GPS applications in smart phones, to more complex micro camera devices, dependent upon our partners needs we can create a bespoke solution at surprisingly low cost. Westgrove are utilising this specialist software to significant effect on several of our Partners premises. What else can we now provide?
