The Benefits of Security for Small Businesses

You’ve spent years building your company, the staff is all you could ask for and your products/services are in high demand. Now that the day-to-day operations are running smoothly, you can relax, right?

Before you get too comfortable, ask yourself what you would do if something happens, on-site, to one of your staff members or to your business location that impacts the work you are doing? While you are picking up the pieces, it’s likely you’ll be wishing you had better security measures in place.

What can a Security Firm do for my Business?

There are many benefits to hiring a security firm to protect your business and, even more importantly, your staff and customers. There is no wrong time to hire a security firm.…except after something happens.

With on-site security (supported by an offsite team) you get:

  1. Crime Prevention
    This seems obvious, but most of us only think about the dangers of theft and other crimes after the fact. Studies have shown that the presence of a security guard (armed or unarmed) is enough to deter many criminal behaviors.
  2. Efficient, on-the-spot action
    Of course, if an unfortunate incident does occur, you have the incomparable benefit of a trained professional on hand to take immediate action. No more waiting a few minutes (or more) for law enforcement, medical teams or the fire department to deliver aid that could potentially reduce a loss or save a life.
  3. Remote monitoring
    While a security guard can’t be in all places at once, our remote monitoring teams can. Detection is the first stage of deterrence, and with this outside support our on-site guards are even more effective.
  4. Improved customer service
    This may sound unusual at first, but it is an important aspect of our program. Our staff undergoes extensive client-relations training and brings with them a courteous, helpful attitude your customers and staff will appreciate.
  5. A greater sense of security
    This is what it’s all about. Your staff will work more efficiently, your customers will feel relaxed, and you’ll enjoy a significant reduction in stress.

And that’s just the beginning. For a complete understanding of how a professional security company can protect your business, contact us today.
