Shoppers love the easy accessibility and personal service offered by high street stores. These same qualities, however, can also leave staff vulnerable to abuse, theft, and even physical assault. But there is a proven way to maximise staff safety—without compromising efficiency or the shopping experience. With an Ascom personnel alarm solution, staff are only a discreet button push away from help
Every high street shop and store is unique. So it only makes sense that staff alarm solutions are customized to their specific needs and infrastructures. Ascom specialises in such systems; integrating different infrastructures, technologies (DECT, IP, cellular) and handsets to maximise staff and customer safety.
Devising staff alarm solutions requires specialist knowledge, and an understanding of the realities faced by store workers. It also usually involves integrating various systems and technologies such as cellular, Wi-Fi, Paging, and DECT. Then comes user training, scheduled maintenance, around-the-clock support, and software updates. Your organisation’s needs may change, too. You may want to integrate your staff’s handsets with fire, refrigeration and other technical alarms. Or you may want to equip staff with Ascom d81 ‘Protector’ handsets, possibly the most robust handset ever made. Whatever your security needs, Ascom will find the solution.
