WHAT IS A GUARD TOUR SYSTEM
A guard tour system is a system used to help companies and organizations to organize, log and execute guard tours and patrols in their assets ensuring that the officers will accomplish their tasks within the predefined time intervals. There is a wide variety of guard tour systems, which can be divided in two major categories: Wand guard tour systemsbased on handheld devices and cloud guard tour systems based on modern mobile and cloud technology.
Guard tour systems provide a means to check and record the time that a guard executes his guard tour by scanning specific checkpoints assigned on the area he patrols. Checkpoints are placed in certain points either on buildings or on other locations of a site or remote area and help the managing staff to identify each different location and each portion of a specific territory. The on-site officers can scan checkpoints, send SOS alerts, track and record events and conduct and send reports to the managing staff or the clients, even in real-time.
A security company facility manager responsible for guard tours has to answer the following questions:
- Which tours each guard has to accomplish?
- How their locations will be always tracked?
- Where are the checkpoints (NFC, Beacon, QR-code) assigned for each location?
- Will the guards “scan” the locations at their own will or will they follow a strict or a loose schedule assigned to them?
- How often will they conduct their inspections and how will they send incidents to the Center?
A cloud guard tour system solves all of the above problems via a simple web interface. Facility managers can now analyze data and export multiple reports in real-time. All data can be viewed filtered by date range and status. All scheduled, overdue, missed, passed and failed scans can be reviewed in real-time.
There is a thorough proof of guard tours and location inspections. You can ensure that a guard will now be a “guard online” and you can inspect scheduled tours in an innovative way, eliminating ambiguity in work processes.
