Satisfying today’s supermarket customer requires highly mobile personnel; staff who quickly attend to customers and events throughout a store. But mobility can leave staff vulnerable, especially when working alone. Which is why so supermarkets worldwide turn to Ascom to for their personal safety and alarm solutions.
Every supermarket is unique. So it only makes sense that their personnel alarm solutions are customised—devised to specific needs and infrastructures. Ascom specialises in such systems; integrating different infrastructures (DECT, IP, cellular) and handsets to provide maximum staff and facility security.
Devising personal alarm and security solutions requires specialist knowledge, and an understanding of the daily realities facing supermarket staff and managers. It also usually involves integrating various systems and technologies: 3G, WiFi, LF, Paging, RTLS, base stations, IR tags. And that’s before the solution is even commissioned. Then comes staff training, scheduled maintenance, around-the-clock support, and software updates. Your organisation’s needs may change, too. You may want to refine your solution’s location accuracy. You may want to implement ‘man-down’ and ‘no-movement’ features. 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, quite possibly the most robust handset ever made. Whatever your supermarket security needs, Ascom will find an answer.
