How we ensure quality
We have Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in place to evaluate the effectiveness and quality of our services, and ensure you are getting the most out of our relationship.
Key Performance Indicators
Having spent time with your client analyzing security requirements, your ultimate goal is to achieve 100% of the site visits promised. That number means that the client is receiving what they want and you can invoice all that has been agreed to.
Measuring response time is the ultimate efficiency measure. So you want to respond as quickly as possible. It goes without saying that responding within the agreed-to response time is critical.
You set your staffing levels based on the anticipated volume of calls and service delivery. That said, you want to minimize the non-billable overtime incurred by shared service units in order to be profitable and get a precise view of your productivity.
First-Time Fix Rate
By equipping mobile staff with all the information they need to properly access and respond to a site, you are driving first-time fix rates. Limiting the need to send additional or multiple units means you are more efficient.
Providing all the information your staff needs means that they are more accurate, can take appropriate action while onsite and can provide the client with a detailed incident or activity report.
Have you ever had a client ask the operations center, “When will the response unit be onsite?” If your system is properly automated, you will be able to answer that question very easily, and support your client’s peace of mind.
Other items that can propel client satisfaction include: accurate invoices, incident reports sent to the right people and reports that accurately and richly provide details of any incident.
