Do you want to ensure your mobile teams are working efficiently, whilst increasing their safety? Leading global Security services company Securitas does – which is why Zebra Technologies TC75 Touch Computers are recommended across its group as the future-proof, rugged Android device of choice for its patrol guards.

The Netherlands leads the way

Working in close collaboration with long-term partner and specialist in Mobile Enterprise Solutions, Indicium, the Dutch branch of Securitas was the first country to deploy the new group application, Securitas Mobile Platform (SMP), on Zebra’s TC75. Other countries, such as Belgium, are quickly following suit.

The complete package

Securitas has deployed a selection of accessories for its fleet of TC75s, including standard and in-vehicle chargers. Moreover, the TC75s are protected by a 3-year essential Zebra OneCare coverage plan and managed, configured, updated and secured by AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management. Initial staging and commissioning were delivered by Indicium.

On the beat with Zebra

All beat patrol guards now use TC75s on their rounds: from logging on for duty, to checking their patrol schedule, accessing directions and job-specific instructions, to scanning on-site barcodes and taking photos, for example.  Dispatch, meanwhile, can follow guards’ progress via the integrated GPS and assess their safety with the 15-minute check-in, ensuring teams respond swiftly to any alarms.

Delivering multiple benefits

The solution is delivering numerous benefits including:

  • A 10% decrease in alarm response times
  • Increased patrol flexibility and guard productivity
  • An improvement in guard safety and security
  • Increased efficiency with subsequent rise in customer service levels and high levels of repeat and new business
  • Rapid ROI

Why has Securitas chosen Zebra TC75s?

  • Securitas enjoyed a swift, seamless deployment with great collaboration between Zebra and Indicium
  • The TC75s are future-proof Android enterprise devices, which are easily integrated into the Securitas Mobile Platform
  • Its security teams have given excellent feedback, citing, for example, scanning speed and ease of use
  • The reliability of the robust TC75s, and the subsequent reduction in repairs and device downtime, combined with the Zebra OneCare plan, ensures optimal operational continuity for Securitas

So their guards can stay efficient and safe whilst on the beat.
