Why is it so important to get an independent assessment of a quote for a security system?
All too often we find systems have been over specified and are not commensurate to the risk or indeed fit for purpose, here is a short example.
Our client called in consultants to upgrade the existing CCTV and fencing following an expansion of the site. The consultant put forward a proposal for a 16 camera CCTV system with security fencing and a perimeter intruder detector system, cost c£50K.
The customer was not sure so called us in to carry out an independent survey, we concluded that only six additional cameras were needed and that there was no need for the perimeter intruder detection system to be replaced; there was an old system in place that had been switched off about 10 years ago due to an unacceptable level of false activations.
At the request of our client we met with the consultants to explain our rationale, which although not particularly well received they had to accept that our findings were fully justified.
System cost was reduced by £16K which after our fees left our client with a £14.5k underspend.
How can CripSol help out during a hostile take over bid where large scale redundancies are inevitable and staff are anxious?
Our client was a large manufacturer of agricultural equipment whose plant in the UK was being closed down as part of a rationalisation programme. As part of the take over, the plant was due to close over a 6 month period with nearly all production staff being made redundant.
Key to the take over was the preservation of key manufacturing equipment that was to be transferred to Europe following closure.
Senior management were concerned that some disaffected staff may sabotage equipment which could significantly impact on the smooth running of the closure.
We were called in to advise senior management about how to protect the equipment, which we did. However in doing so we noticed that senior management and the staff that worked with them were all potentially vulnerable to hostile employee action.
We advised how they should protect themselves and also reduce the likelihood of employee action. Thankfully we were able to resolve those fears and recommend ways of reducing the likelihood of any subsequent action being successful.
If you are concerned and feel you need an impartial risk assessment and lifestyle assessment, we can help, just give us a call.
