“What makes you different” is a question asked by most potential customers and the answer is not always clear.
One of the major benefits from Licensing has been the removal of the criminal element from our ranks. This and enforcement of basic training means that all staff have the same base skills and vetting which serves to further level the playing field.
The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) far from being a Blue Ribband differentiator has, with 900 approved companies, become a base requirement. Membership of a trade body such as the BSIA or IPSA does not indicate quality per se, but rather a desire to be associated with likeminded firms.
So how do you differentiate your offering and how do you demonstrate that your standards are as high (if not higher) as everyone else and that your systems for maintaining those standards is robust?
At Doyle Security we have searched high and low for something that will mark us out as a Beacon of Quality and a company whose standards are at the very pinnacle of excellence.
The NSI being the industry’s leading accreditation body have a Gold Award that has been issued to only 130 Manned Guarding Companies in the UK. We are rightly proud to number ourselves in this small and committed group of security professionals.
The NSI provide a very helpful guide which can be found here on the relative merits of employing and trusting an NSI Gold Accredited Company to deliver your manned guarding.
Just as the NSI are a trusted and respected accreditation company, so those who aspire and reach the very pinnacle of the NSI accreditations can be trusted and relied on.
When we at Doyle Security are asked the question “what makes you different” our response is “NSI Gold” and being one of this select band proves the point.
