Web Based Service Verification

Posted by Angela Bertolo on Jun 22, 2009 4:29:00 PM

Securitas Mobile has partnered with AirClic to provide easily accessible, web-based reporting to our patrol customers. 

Using AirClic, patrol officers now have the ability to easily capture location data as well as apply security statuses and observations for each client. Barcodes are placed at various locations on each property. Once the location is checked, the barcode is scanned by a handset that automatically uploads data to an online reporting mechanism known as AirClic MP Reporter. 

Authorized users can view the start and end time of each inspection along with a time stamp on each individual checkpoint and its status in chronological order.  Clients are also able to view exception reports which include information on lock and unlock time notifications, notification of client or emergency services, and signs of vandalism or other noteworthy incidents.

This online interface allows both customers and Securitas Management to review the security status of their locations and personnel.  AirClic servers aggregate the data in real-time and make it available on demand. The data collected with the handsets are uploaded over the data network and inserted into online databases.
