Pro K9 Ltd’s owner Leon Steward:

The Business’s own view

Leon explained how "LONEALERT is cost effective and very straight forward to use," and because of its simplicity all of his staff can "use it with ease, after only 5 minutes of training.

"Also since using LONEALERT there is no one sat at a computer inputting information. So we didn’t have to hire another staff member to do that." Leon went on to explain how LONEALERT has helped "considerably reduce the costs to our clients by as much as 50% when compared to the old system we used.

"I can see where my workers are and make sure they are doing their job, so I can be certain they are where they are supposed to be," which is undoubtedly helpful for a security company.

There are also advantages in having a digital log book, compared to the old paper based one. LONEALERT is "Very straight forward to use. It has reduced our costs to the client, winning us more business.

"And at the end of the month we can provide a PDF report to our customers of the times dates and places our staff have been, Our clients love this transparency, and it reduces invoice queries."

LONEALERT to the rescue!

There was also an incident on a site that Pro K9 Ltd was supplying security to. An expensive generator went missing from the site and it was believed to have been stolen. Pro K9 Ltd were under suspicion of taking this generator. However, as all of Pro K9 Ltd’s staff working on that site were equipped with the LONEALERT Smartphone app Pro K9 Ltd could prove to the site owners and the insurance company beyond doubt that they were not responsible.

Thanks to the GPS on the LONEALERT App we could prove to our insurance company that none of our staff were at the location when the generator went missing.
