When’s the last time your security vendor dropped by and asked how the system’s working?
If your answer is a) It’s been a while, or b) Never, then you may be spending too much on an outdated system!
Reason: Electronic security experts say that minor upgrades or tweaks every year or so not only boosts security, but also helps save money.
Here are two ways you can help get the most bang for your buck:
1. List any and all complaints
Why put up with minor annoyances in your system?
Let vendors know about problems you’d like fixed.
Examples: poor image quality, flimsy building access cards, limited flood lighting, etc.
2. Figure out what you can cut
Chances are you’ll pay more for upgrading your system, but you can offset those costs by eliminating features you don’t need.
Look at the whole picture and what it all costs. You may be paying too much if:
• your occupancy rate is lower, or
• your company eliminated a shift.
