G4S Secure Solutions
|Secure Trax PLUS is a fully interactive software platform|
(USA) formerly known as G4S Wackenhut debuts a new corporate vision at ASIS 2010
- to deliver a new kind of integrated security solution that combines manpower, technology and innovation. It's a whole new business model that builds on the Wackenhut legacy as the premier supplier of manpower to the security market. Innovative components of the new G4S include technologies that were developed internally. These include Secure Trax™ PLUS interactive software that expands manpower productivity, and a best-in-breed remote monitoring centre that incorporates video analytics to empower more responsive on-site security. G4S has also acquired several technology companies to expand its range of integrated security solutions to serve various specialised markets.
A G4S promotion at ASIS awards 10 iPads to show attendees

. To win an iPad, attendees must pick up an iPad entry card at the G4S booth and have it stamped by G4S security officers attending the show. Winners will be drawn from attendees who turn in cards stamped with all three elements the new G4S provides to customers -"manpower," "technology" and "innovation". "G4S is in a unique position to provide existing and new customers with comprehensive security solutions that completely integrate both manpower and technology and are customised to meet an end-user's specific needs,"
said Drew Levine, President, G4S Secure Solutions (USA). "Although there are many companies at ASIS touting solutions, no other single company delivers the whole package. That's G4S' innovation today."

The remote monitoring centre
in Burlington, Massachusetts - about 17 miles northwest of Boston - is a 5,000 square feet facility that promotes efficiency by using video monitoring and analytics to alert security personnel if there is a problem at a customer's site that needs to be addressed, such as someone loitering in a parking lot after business hours. The centre provides a seamless interface of manned security and technology to increase efficiency, mitigate risks and reduce costs. The centre is also one of a select handful to be awarded UL-827 certification for monitoring facilities.
The global resources of G4S now deliver a wider range of services, including manpower; security consulting, design, and engineering; compliance and risk management; facilities management, and remote video monitoring. Providing a seamless interface of manned security and technology, G4S is leveraging innovation to increase efficiency, limit risks and reduce costs for customers.
