A&E intrusion detection puts an end to spate of burglaries at Veritas.
Bart Vandenabeele, Veritas : In the winter of 2012-2013 our chain of shops was hit in a spate of burglaries. Thieves opt for the easiest way. And our shops were one of the few in the shopping street without outdoor sirens. The loss in terms of stolen money and goods remained limited, but the other material damage and the loss in terms of commercial time were significant. The burglaries resulted in extra work and inconvenience. In addition, they created a feeling of insecurity with our employees. Something had to be done.
National management of user codes
Eight of our shops already featured an intrusion detection system of a local fitter. However, we needed a solution that could be managed on a national level, preferably with a single press of the button. Our drivers deliver at night, and we frequently have new employees starting with our company. Two reasons to manage user codes centrally without the need for our shop staff to perform any additional actions.
Only with A&E Security
We contacted several large security firms, including A&E Security. The firm received promising reviews in the retail industry. In addition, A&E Security appeared to be the only national player with a centrally controllable intrusion detection system. We asked for two tenders: a price offer for stand-alone intrusion detection systems (without central management) and a price offer for an intrusion detection system with central management.
Demonstration in Bruges convinces
A&E Security demonstrated the intrusion detection system with remote management software in its headquarters in Bruges. The choice was quickly made. All units are of leading brands and the software does exactly what it says it will. In addition, we got a clear picture of A&E Security during the visit. Its corporate DNA is impressive: clearly structured, a broad base of technical knowledge and a capacity to deliver large installations in the short term. Not unimportant if you want to equip some 100 shops in 6 months! In addition, they have impressive references. This inspires confidence.
Double detection by way of additional control
All Veritas shops not located in a secured shopping mall were fitted with the Hera remote management software. This concerned some 100 shops. The double detection enables us to limit technical interventions as false alarms are filtered efficiently. The results are spectacular. Almost no burglaries have been reported since the installation. So the spate of burglaries has really stopped!
Why A&E Security?
We were looking for a security partner with national capacity, a high level of professionalism and an excellent service. We found all this with A&E Security. Project follow-up is running smoothly. Our new shop branches are furthermore served quickly. In addition, we are extremely satisfied with the central management software. It makes our lives safer and easier.
