The introduction of technology into security provision can only enhance levels of protection that clients often seek when enlisting the services of a firm such as GPIS. Much of the tech that the team utilise on a daily basis is the perfect example of innovation being used for a purpose, rather than for innovation’s own sake. Effectively using the likes of AI-powered analytical CCTV systems, wearable technology, drones, robot patrols, and much more, the firm continues to execute its responsibilities with unerring efficiency and accuracy. Integrating this technology can sometimes lead to tricky periods of transition, but the firm has managed it seamlessly. Whilst many security providers are still reliant on their traditionally physical and manpower-based workforces, GPIS has leveraged the latest technology to enhance security beyond client’s expectations. In fact, one of the firm’s sites now boasts no manpower at all; instead being fully managed by its intelligent analytical CCTV system that is monitored by officers at the 24- hour command centre. Whilst it is imperative to innovate and ensure that the latest technology is being used for the right reasons, it is also crucially important for staff to be trained in how to use it correctly. Alongside the boots-on-the-ground training that each officer receives in security services, they are also taught how to use state-of-the-art technology in ways that are efficient and effective. Also dispelling the myth around unfriendly and stern-faced security guards, every officer is also trained to the highest standard of customer service, and is able to interact with the public in a friendly, yet firm, manner, ensuring that every client is protected by people they trust. As a thriving new member of the security services industry, GPIS has already established itself as one of the best across not just Singapore, but the world as a whole.
