It’s winter, an excellent time to deal with broken pipes.
The transition from old tech to new can be challenging, but it’s time to toss out the broken pipes and make the switch from paper – where you’ve been – to real-time software and a data-driven solution – where you need to be. Sure, there are costs, but the effort required to turn around the proverbial battleship and the commitment to get-it-now-rather-than-later pays off at several levels and in real dollars.
Reason #1 – Make Your Money Work Smarter
How much time do you spend every day, every week, staring at data that tells you what you didn’t fix or can’t go back and change? When you multiply your bill rate or your aggregate staffing cost per hour by the number of hours spent doing repetitive, administrative tasks, the pain-to-reward equation is an easy hurdle to get over.
The new GuardTek 3.5 user interface is clean, streamlined and inviting. To address customers’ increased UI expectations, we removed barriers and added icons to make your experience more pleasant and productive.
Some of the new features include:
- A new notification center featuring easy access to Lone Worker Alerts, Incident Reports, Activity Reports, Shifts, Tours and New Post Orders.
- Increased legibility of forms and templates.
- New dynamic Logbook with color coded Activity Log.
We have more exciting news to share on the GuardTek software front. We are augmenting our Training and Certification module with new Airport Security Training and Quality Control features. We developed the extension and updated the m-Post mobile app for a client in the Airport Security Sector, but plan to share these updates with the rest of the GuardTek community. The new features can help supervisors collect, organize and retain training compliance and history for teams in the aviation security industry.
