Business Centre CCTV Monitoring For Bizspace

Corps Security : 29 May, 2012  (Application Story)
UK flexible workspace provider takes combination of concierge services and alarm / surveillance monitoring from Corps Security
Business Centre CCTV Monitoring For Bizspace
Corps Security and its partner, Keyways, have been appointed by flexible workspace provider, Bizspace, to supply remote CCTV and alarm monitoring, access control and concierge services for three of its sites in Preston, Blackburn and Rochdale. The agreement will allow these locations to benefit from 24/7 remote security via the state-of-the-art Corps Monitoring Centre (CMC).

Founded in 2000 with just one site, Bizspace provides flexible workspace accommodation for both the small to medium sized enterprise (SME) and corporate markets, and has now expanded its portfolio to 110 locations across England and Scotland. The company’s property director, Lisa Risk, commented, ‘Bizspace provides the easiest, most flexible and cost effective way to occupy workspace in the UK. We recognise that security is incredibly important in keeping our clients and their property safe and have implemented a programme of continual improvement in this area of our business.’

After completing an internal security audit, Lisa contacted Corps Security’s CMC business development director, Eric Roberts, and asked him to make a series of recommendations to further optimise its infrastructure. Eric explained, ‘We’ve worked with Bizspace on an ad-hoc basis for a number of years but this gave us an opportunity to make a comprehensive set of suggestions that would allow the company to reconfigure its operation and put in place the best possible security system.’

Once a suitable plan of action had been agreed, Manchester based security installation specialist and Corps Security partner, Keyways, was appointed to carry out a full product upgrade. This included the configuration of a new intruder alarm solution, door entry and access control systems, as well as CCTV with video analytics. This uses software algorithms for the analysis of images in order to detect alarm conditions such as an intruder moving into a restricted area and has the capability to only transmit images when an actual event occurs.

As part of his recommendations, Eric also suggested remote monitoring as an effective way to ensure round the clock surveillance and invited Risk and her team to Glasgow to see the CMC for themselves. They were thoroughly impressed with what they saw there and Lisa Risk commented, ‘There’s no doubt that the CMC sets a new benchmark in remote monitoring. Not only does it use the best technology on the market, it is also the smartest and well presented facility that I’ve ever seen.’

In addition to the CCTV monitoring Corps Security is also providing a remote concierge service for Bizspace. Now, when a person tries to gain entry via a door entry system, staff at the CMC can restrict access by using a combination of CCTV based face recognition and a pre-defined list of questions in order to screen individuals.

Eric Roberts concluded, ‘The CMC is the most modern and truly independent third-party facility of its kind in the UK. Bizspace joins an ever growing list of companies that are benefiting from using it and I’m looking forward to developing our business relationship in the future.’
