NFC Africa SafeGuard How it works...
NFC Africa SafeGuard enables Security Guards to check-in to their shift using their NFC enabled phone and their unique ID badge identifier. The NFC Africa cloud-based server holds details of the expected roster for the security guards and will notify you immediately if the guard post is not covered by the expected shift start time.
Then at pre-determined (or randomised) times, the NFC phone will prompt the security guard to commence a pre-determined patrol or other activity. At each patrol point or activity point a passive NFC Tag will be located (fixed to any viable surface using a special 3M adhesive). The security guard will then touch the NFC phone to the NFC Tag as prompted by the NFC phone display. Immediately the successful Tag read is sent via GSM to the NFC Africa Database.
A failure to tag an expected patrol point will generate an exception report for supervisors and/or managers. This assists with security guard service delivery as well as acting as a safety alert system should a guard fall ill, be attacked or otherwise become disabled.
All of the performance data is collected in real-time (or if there is a temporary GSM network outage - the data will cache on the NFC phone and wait to transmit when GSM network resumes), and sent via the mobile phone network to the NFC Africa cloud-based database, where it is analyzed and appropriate reports and alerts are sent to supervisors, managers and clients. All reports and alerts are fully configurable to meet any frequency of reporting or any number of recipients.
