Better Security Patrol Tracking
There’s always a bad egg or two that threaten to ruin a sound system. Thankfully, Appenate stepped in to help before this security company suffered losses at the hands of their bad eggs.
‘Opportunistic’ Security Guards
This client needed a better security guard tracking solution after a few guards found a way to exploit the system.
Using an old barcode scanning method, the security guards were supposed to walk to a point in their patrol, scan the barcode, then move on to the next position.
A good system, in theory. Only the building in question experienced regular vandalism regardless. This baffled management. Had the vandals worked out the guard’s routines? Were they that dedicated to committing the vandalism?
An investigation found that a few guards weren’t entirely honest about their patrols. They had printed the barcodes and simply scanned them from the comfort of the office.
