Strategies to reduce overtime and increase efficiency are not new, but the tools that help you implement those well-known strategies are, and they are pushing to the forefront of what you require in your security business.
The concepts of having more efficient scheduling processes, broadening your employee skill base, cross-train, streamline your daily processes, increasing your staff base– that stuff is not new. All of those ideas have been around as long as we have, but the tools that help manage your crew are new and becoming more and more efficient and necessary.
Specifically, with employee base and streamlining scheduling, you need real-time transparency for hours worked, locations worked, fast visual access to the skills your employees possess— you have to know if they should they be working in those places, if you utilizing and maximizing employee talent to the fullest, who has the skill and training that may have the hours available but hasn’t yet been scheduled.
When you cross-train your employees, you are investing in more options for your employees and managers, giving them the availability to work an employee on a dock one day, and on dispatch the next– Or managing doors and visitor entry. You give yourself so much more scheduling flexibility when you implement an organized employee cross-train strategy.
It’s in your best interest to ensure your employees are actually getting real experience and working those posts, not just getting certified and trained in certain areas, but never using those skills. That’s time and money lost. With HR Commander, created by Archon Tech, you can have instant, open, and transparent visibility of those options. You can forecast based on past events and future needs.

1. Audit-Proofing Your Organization.
Compliance requirements for Safety and Security are ever-evolving, and organizations are protecting themselves and their employees by providing documented training for response to critical events. Companies are focusing more on employee development and training to reduce liability. Learning Management Systems (LMS) keep a real-time record that your employee has taken the courses and completed required certifications, as well as how well they performed. You can easily report out the status of each individual in the event of a security audit.
2. *DING* *DING* Your Training is Due!
A good Learning Management System will report out when employee training has taken place, but a GREAT LMS will notify employees when required training must be completed or repeated, keeping your employee learning and compliance up to date at all times.
3. On-Demand Training.
The beauty of a Learning Management System loaded with eLearning courses and documents is that your employees have 24/7 access to education and exams where applicable. No more scheduling multiple off-site classroom learning days to fit everyone’s schedule! Training is increasingly being digitally delivered as eLearning accessible by computers, tablets, and smartphones. A device-responsive LMS makes instant access to learning materials possible by delivering eLearning links, apps, PDFs, videos to any mobile device, anywhere, anytime.
4. Content Is Always Available.
Without putting knowledge into immediate practice, people tend to forget the majority of what has been discussed in a classroom training session before ever making it back to the office. By using a quality LMS, your staff will be able to go back and review content at any time to keep important information fresh in mind.
