New guard management system

February 2016 News, Security Services & Risk Management, Products

After 12 months of development, OnGuard has launched a complimentary web-based rostering system that will offer convenience to existing customers. The system will allow customers to quickly and easily roster staff, build up personnel folders, record time and attendance, and set up detailed timesheets.

With just a few mouse clicks, users can have access to a convenient, advanced online rostering system for the guard management industry. After logging in to the OnGuard system, customers enter the shift patterns for various staff members. Next, you enter the details and requirements of each guard site, as well as the personal details of the staff member. Once staff members are captured on the system, you can specify where each one works, and with one click they are rostered for a specific site.

The cloud-based nature of the program means that there is no maintenance required to upgrade individual computers, which is highly labour intensive. We have received good feedback from customers who have done the training and we are looking forward to contacting more customers to set up training sessions.

The web-based system adds to OnGuard’s cloud-based offerings, which also include a mobile app that allows companies without on-site OnGuard systems to record time and attendance.

“When staff members clock in, they simply type a PIN number into a wall-mounted tablet. A photo is taken to prove identity, and admin staff can develop accurate time and attendance reports,” Frost explains.

Because of the web-based nature of their applications, OnGuard can easily be used by any company around the world.
