Total Security Management for Cable and Wireless

Mitie Security : 08 September, 2009  (Application Story)
Patrols, monitoring, maintenance of fire systems and security management to be supplied as one package from Mitie in 18.9 million pound contract with Cable and Wireless
Mitie, the strategic outsourcing and asset management company, has increased the scope of its work with Cable and Wireless, one of the world's leading telecommunications companies, with the addition of a Total Security Management contract valued at 18.9m over the next three years.

The new security contract adds to the work that Mitie delivers to Cable and Wireless including the provision of facilities management services to its UK and Ireland estate and the provision of engineering maintenance services to more than 700 buildings around the UK. The new security contract will cover more than 900 of its buildings in the UK and 15 European countries including many large offices and data centres.

Mitie now has the responsibility for the total protection of Cable & Wireless' estate providing a full range of security services including the manned guarding, installation and maintenance of electrical and fire security systems, mobile patrols and alarm response, remote CCTV monitoring; and a dedicated security management team.

The contract was secured following a competitive tender process in which Mitie was chosen based on its sector expertise and joined up approach. Mitie will be working with Cable & Wireless to improve the integration of the various security elements, which will add to the operational and financial benefits, providing them with a service provision that is a key element of their organisational strategy.

Commenting on the contract award, Jeff Flanagan, Managing Director of Mitie's security business, said: "We're delighted to be working with Cable & Wireless to support them in developing a more integrated approach to security across their estate. Our expertise of the telecommunications sector and ability to provide a totally outsourced security service has allowed us to work in partnership with Cable & Wireless to ensure that its security processes and systems are supporting them in meeting their wider business objectives. From the outset we knew that Cable & Wireless wanted a streamlined approach to security and a provider that understands its key risks and business drivers."

John Bernard, Head of Security, Cable &Wireless added: "Taking the decision to go to the market place for all our Fire & Security services requirement was a bold one. The service providers we had in place, (some of them for many years) provided an adequate service to our business, but adequate was no longer good enough. Our business needs and demands for a streamlined approach to Fire & Security grew at a significant pace, and with more and more of our customers demanding a higher level of security protection we found that there were few service providers that could deliver the vision we had. Mitie's total security management team offered us a competitive solution that had the ability to be flexible, cost effective, innovative and clearly measurable in line with our business objectives. We look forward to working with Mitie on this new set of challenges."
