GuardTools by Industry
Manned Guarding Industry
The manned guarding industry, on a high level, is characterised by hard competition, uniformed services and almost no differentiation, having the same production cost due to minimum wage regulations and the requirements of the services itselves, like uniforms, vehicles, equipment, mandatory training etc. This has lead to a devastating focus on price resulting in low margins and poor profitability in the manned guarding industry.
The industry as a whole is also very conservative when it comes to change and modernization although it differs somewhat from country to country. Scandinavian companies are more likely to adopt new trends and technology than others. The industry has too many manual processes within the areas of information sharing, information updates, report handling and distribution, planning and customer relations. There are also problems with poor quality resulting in customer complaints and harsh discussions at SLA meetings. To sum up, the industry struggles with competitiveness, low efficiency and quality issues.
