Flowfinity Announces Mobile Solution for NFC Security Guard Tour Verification
Security service providers can enforce route compliance with Flowfinity software on NFC mobile devices
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 30, 2012 - Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a proven provider of enterprise mobile applications, today announced a software solution that enables security service providers to verify guard locations in real-time using NFC phones. This technology leverages commonly available smartphones as well as rugged devices to help reduce paperwork and associated delays, improve employee accountability, and provide better transparency for security clients.
Using Flowfinity software on NFC-enabled phones, security guards can scan their location at checkpoints on their tour and send the information to head office for real-time tracking and control. Automatic notifications can be triggered upon a guard’s arrival, or to flag incidents as they are reported. This type of proactive monitoring helps ensure the safety of lone workers, enforce compliance and enable the delivery of value add services to clients.
NFC phones provide the additional benefit of multi-functional use including phone calls, email, SMS, allowing security companies to achieve a higher return on their hardware investment. With Flowfinity software, mobile forms can also be customized to replace paper forms such as site inspection or incident reports, resulting in detailed audit trails that include reports and location validation.
"With NFC guard tour verification and Flowfinity, security companies can achieve a new level of service with better transparency, which clients are increasingly expecting,” said Larry Wilson, VP of Sales and Marketing, Flowfinity. “As a cross-platform solution, Flowfinity provides the flexibility to choose from a variety of NFC mobile devices while protecting the software investment for the future."
