Missed security patrols can hurt your reputation. You know that well, don’t you? In fact, it can take away your most faithful clients just like that. So, how do deal with such a grave problem you might not even have control over?

It is a tough question to answer, know that, but definitely not something that can not be resolved. GuardsPro, the cloud-based security guard management platform is the one-stop solution, but how? That’s what you are going to explore now. Let’s get started, shall we?

Open Shifts And Shift Status

Open shift & shift status feature of GuardsPro is the simplest way of all to ensure security guards don’t miss their scheduled security patrols. How? By allowing the security managers to create shifts that are open to all the guards. They can then view them easily on the GuardsPro mobile app, and choose, as well as, confirm the shift they want to work. Once that’s done, the manager instantly gets notified of the confirmation.

And in case no guard confirms an open shift, the manager can go ahead and assign a specific guard to ensure the shift is executed. Therefore, not only does this feature provide an equal opportunity to the security guards but also encourages them to become accountable without letting the pressure get to them.

Real-Time Schedule/Shift Changes

No matter how good of a planner you are, you will need a security guard scheduler like GuardsPro to eliminate the chances of losing paper schedules. You’ll need it to instantly change scheduled shifts and to inform the same to the security guards through real-time notifications in the app.

It allows the security guards to stay up-to-date on the changes made in the schedule even when they are on the move to miss their security patrols. Further, GuardsPro’s security guard scheduler with an easy-to-publish/unpublish shifts feature allows it even when scheduling is on autopilot or has been done weeks in advance. What more can you ask for?

Ability To Clock In Only On Site

Need yet another amazing way to ensure your security guards don’t miss the security patrols ever? Use the GuardsPro’s geofence-enabled security guard monitoring system to make sure the guards clock in only from the post site at the scheduled time than from anywhere else. This will allow you to find out the exact time and the location of the guards in real time. Any delay or missed security patrols will immediately be notified so you can take appropriate action.

Mobile Patrol App

Real-Time Notifications On Shift Delay

Real-time notifications can turn into a real-time lifesaver for the management, no kidding. GuardsPro’s security guard scheduler allows the managers to receive them the moment security patrols are missed by the guards. In case of an unavoidable absence, GuardsPro allows the security manager to easily find replacements with the same qualifications and skills and assign the shifts to other guards so the work never stops.

Pinpoint A Guard Checked-In On Map

Pinpointing a security guard on a map who’s checked in on a post site doesn’t mean he can’t miss essential checkpoints. It’s the reason why GuardsPro’s security guard monitoring system allows location mapping using a GPS tracker as well as geofencing to enhance field visibility. Additionally, it helps address accountability to discourage missing patrol sites. Any violations or inactivity are flagged and brought to the notice of the management immediately.

Ability To Scan Every Checkpoint

Missed security patrols can still be fixed with the help of GuardsPro security guard scheduler. But, how do you propose to fix security guards missing essential checkpoints? We suggest conducting guided site tours using the GuardsPro QR, NFC, and virtual tag. 

They can easily be created using the security guard management platform with a few clicks and used as checkpoints. The GuardsPro mobile app enables the security guards on guided site tours to scan all the checkpoints and complete the tasks. Thus, eventually improving the overall on-site performance and audit capabilities.

How do you plan to ensure your security guards never miss mobile security patrols ever?
