Importance of Customised Security Solutions: Safetell’s Approach

09 August, 2023

Businesses across the UK are always at risk of crime, from threats from the public to burglary to terrorism. Over 600,000 crimes and over 100,000 burglaries are reported against businesses and commercial properties in the UK every year.

Implementing security measures such as security doors, entrance control solutions,  and security screens can have a great impact towards protecting your staff, your building, and your assets, but a one-size-fits-all solution won’t be sufficient in every single scenario. You may need a bespoke solution that takes your specific business needs into account.

Why Is a Customised Solution Necessary?

While many companies are selling ready-made security solutions, typically limited to one type of product, they aren’t always suitable for your organisation’s needs. Here’s why a bespoke security solution is the best approach for most companies:

Address Specific Needs

Every business operates in a unique environment and faces distinct risks and vulnerabilities. A tailored safety solution allows for a comprehensive assessment of these risks and the development of strategies and measures specifically designed to mitigate them. By understanding the unique challenges a business faces, a tailored solution can provide the most effective and efficient safety measures to protect employees, assets, and operations.

Ensure Compliance with Regulations

Different industries and different client risk profiles have specific safety regulations and standards to be adhered to. A tailored safety solution ensures that a business is compliant with these requirements. Off-the-shelf or generic security solutions may not adequately address the specific regulations applicable to a business, potentially leading to legal and financial consequences. By customising security measures to meet regulatory standards, businesses can avoid penalties, legal issues, and reputational damage.

Allows Optimal Resource Allocation

Tailored security solutions help businesses allocate their resources optimally. Off-the-shelf solutions often include unnecessary features or may not adequately cover all the risks faced by a business, e.g. if the area is prone to break-ins through forced entry techniques such as kicking or ramming the door, the off-the-shelf door might not have reinforced features, such as a sturdy frame, impact-resistant materials, or a reinforced strike plate. The business may also end up with a security screen that doesn’t fit in with the aesthetic of the building or an off-the-shelf security door that doesn’t fit the specific dimensions of an entrance, leaving gaps that can be exploited by intruders.

This can lead to wasting resources on ineffective security measures or leave critical areas exposed. By tailoring security solutions, businesses can invest their resources strategically, focusing on areas that require the most attention and ensuring the best possible return on investment.

Enhances Effectiveness

Generic security solutions may provide a basic level of protection, but they often fail to address specific needs and challenges. Tailored solutions, on the other hand, are designed to precisely target the identified risks and vulnerabilities of a business. This approach ensures that the security measures implemented are highly effective in mitigating the identified risks, maximising the overall security and protection of the business.

Easy Integration with Existing Systems

Many businesses already have existing security systems, processes, and infrastructure in place. A tailored solution takes into account these existing systems and integrates new measures seamlessly. By considering the compatibility and integration of security measures with the existing infrastructure, businesses can avoid disruptions, minimise costs, and ensure a cohesive and efficient security framework.

Future Scalability

Businesses are not static entities, and their security needs may evolve over time. A bespoke solution allows for scalability and adaptability to accommodate future changes and growth. By working with a provider that understands the specific requirements of a business, it becomes easier to modify and expand security measures as needed, ensuring continued protection and adaptability to changing circumstances.
