Cost effective without compromising security

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Bidvest Protea Coin was a Gold Sponsor at the Residential Estate Security Conference. The company did not have products on display because it offers estates a complete solution, from guards through to technology and maintenance.

The key for the company is not a one-off sale, but rather a long-term contract with estates. This, said CEO Costa Diavastos, enables estates to select the optimal security solution for their needs without having a massive expense at the start of the project. Bidvest Protea Coin offers a rental or lease option that allows estates to pay a monthly fee for their entire security operation – as noted, this can include guards and technology – which is defined at the start of the contract period to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

More than simply paying for the products, the contract with the company includes maintenance and repairs over the course of the contract, including preventive maintenance to ensure that the equipment installed performs properly at all times. At the end of the contract, estates can take ownership of the installation, or they can upgrade to the latest technology, again paying a monthly fee.

This approach enables estates to make sure they have the security they need at a predictable cost over the term of the contract.
