How to pick your best suited security company first time

Common Problems with security guarding companies

I have lost count the amount of times, I have visited a prospective client that has been let down by their current provider in more ways than one.

Common pitfalls of our supposed "competitors" that I hear regularly are as follows

  1. Security guards not interested in the job

  2. Chronic lateness

  3. Inappropriate behaviour

  4. Poor dress standards

  5. Lack of communication skills

  6. Never see the management

  7. Receiving different security guards all the time

  8. Security on their phone

  9. Security's lack of positive body language

  10. Failure to deliver what they were originally promised

and the list goes on....

The majority of security guard companies hire business development managers/ sales managers. These business development executives have sales targets and have a lot of pressure on their shoulders to deliver. This often results in a stack it high sell it cheap unaccountable service. The clients are often promised the earth and are delivered a suit filler security service that offers little or no added value to the client and their customers. This is because sales drum up the business and then pass it to an operations manager who isn't incentivised to run additional contracts and there your problems will begin. The touchpoint you started with has disappeared before the contract has even began. Do not fall in to this trap, look at Fahrenheit Security's solution.
