C3 Shared Services: intelligent security solutions

October 2011 Integrated Solutions

C3 Shared Services has made its mark with the best technology and customer service.

In a competitive landscape where cost is often the driving force behind security decisions, C3 Shared Services has made its mark by focusing on delivering solutions that provide the value clients require, reliably and consistently.

Focusing on the provision of complete intelligent video and perimeter security solutions, C3 customises each solution to its client’s needs, ensuring perimeters are secure, day and night. C3’s business development director Brendon Cowley says the company was founded on the principles of providing the best solutions and technology, matched by the best expertise and ongoing support.

The company does not define perimeter protection as a long fence with an electric gate, but uses its experience in video analytics and CCTV technologies, including thermal cameras, of which it is a pioneer in South Africa to create innovative, yet workable solutions.

“C3 represents a number of leading global brands, but makes a point of choosing the best technology suited to each project we are involved in,” explains Cowley. “We ensure the best combination of technology and best practices deliver a solution that works. In doing so we are not always the cheapest solution, but we always deliver the results clients want.”

C3’s directors have been involved in providing integrated electronic solutions for more than a decade. As a result, they bring a comprehensive wealth of knowledge in providing effective and working solutions. Each product the company recommends has been extensively field tested in order to determine its real-world effectiveness.

“Our field-testing allows us to understand the real capabilities of the various products we support, ensuring our solutions deliver as promised,” adds Cowley. “This includes making use of effective lightning protection designs that actually work when lightning strikes.”

The company has designed and implemented high-end perimeter security solutions and military grade intrusion detection systems throughout South and southern Africa, creating innovative solutions through the use of intelligent video analytics and thermal cameras. Some of its projects include:

* The Durban Harbour: consultation and design of intelligent video perimeter security.

* Gautrain: thermal cameras for intrusion detection.

* Prison in Gaborone.

* Platinum Refinery: electronic security and video systems.

* Zambian Copper Mine: intelligent video analytics and perimeter security.

* Blue Valley Golf and Country Estate: intelligent video perimeter security.

* National Keypoints: electronic security and video systems

* Gold Mines: intelligent video security that combines pan and tilt thermal cameras with video analysis.

* Zwartkop Golf Estate: intelligent video perimeter security.

A well-designed security programme consists of many elements. Policies, procedures, training, personnel, electronic systems, hardware and environment are all important components of an effective solution. Only when these pieces are properly assembled can the desired level of security be attained.

Each of the diverse elements is a specialty in its own right. A security manager or facilities manager may be expert in a variety of areas, but not in all the aspects of a complex security plan. This is particularly true of electronic systems, where changing technology makes it difficult to remain current. C3 bridges the gap by applying best practices and current technology.

Brands that C3 represents in South Africa include:

* DVTel iojmage (intelligent video analytics and video management systems).

* Geoquip (innovative perimeter fencing solutions).

* Opgal (military grade thermal cameras).

* HTS (licence plate and vehicle recognition systems).

C3’s service is such that customers keep coming back to the company for new projects, assured that the solutions recommended will deliver as specified.

“We do not believe in going back to a project until we get it right,” states Cowley, “so we get it right the first time.”
