Protect Your Business Assets

Protecting your assets is a key concern if you own a business.  As a business owner, you make decisions everyday that affect your bottom line, including how to keep safe what is important to your continued success.  What is an ideal security plan for your business? Protect Your Business Assets: Analyze Needs This may seem like a daunting question, but a thorough analysis of your current assets and who has access to them is a good place to start.  Your assets include your facility, of course, but can also include customer data, merchandise and equipment. And access is not just from the obvious sources, your employees.  You should also consider property managers, cleaning crews, other companies’ employees if you share space, and vendors.  They all have contact with you and the assets you need to protect to stay in business.  A security plan needs to consider all of these variables to be effective. Once you have done that analysis, then you can work with an outside security firm such as United American Security to balance your risks and your budget.  Here are some key considerations: What are your physical security needs?  Of course you will consider upgrading the locks on any doors and windows.  But, depending on your office size and physical layout, you might consider a video surveillance system or motion sensors to trigger targeted lighting. Your business might also benefit from environmental hazard detection if you work with sensitive materials. What are your IT security requirements? Security experts can help you secure your Wi-Fi connection as well as install an intrusion detection system if appropriate. What kind of...

Security Guards Save You Money

Security Guards Increase Your Bottom Line Security guards save you money as a business owner.  Have you ever considered hiring a security guard to increase your bottom line?   There are multiple reasons to hire United American Security to protect your assets.  This can include hiring a security guard to protect your building, your employees, your equipment, even your cash on hand – all assets can be lost or damaged through criminal activity such as theft or vandalism, but also by severe weather, unsafe worker behavior or waste. You hire a security guard to maintain high-visibility and to deter illegal and inappropriate actions.  The guard watches over your property or employees by direct observation or by means of an internal alarm or video system.  If something is amiss, your security guard documents all incidents and warns and escorts trespassers off your property or calls emergency services, such as police or other first responders when appropriate.  You benefit from additional eyes and ears by reducing the costs associated with your lost or damaged assets. Security Guards Minimize Your Risks To minimize risk to your business, you should consider three inter-related policy components:  1) workplace security; 2) emergency planning; and 3) the proper insurance coverage.  Increasing  your workplace security is where hiring a security guard comes into play.  But before you decide to use security guards, you should ask your insurance agent about how this affects your liability coverage. If your guards will be armed, or if you will be using unattended guard dogs, you don’t want to incur liability by being sued by an intruder.  Your insurance agent will protect...

Security Services in Texas: A “No Brainer” Choice for a Texas Security Company Owner

Security Services in Texas: A “No Brainer” Choice for a Texas Security Company Owner Jeff Moore, the owner of Top Gun Security and Investigations, completed the paperwork to officially merge his security services company with United American Security on April 19 2017. It was his birthday and “the best birthday present I’ve ever received,” he says. Indeed, it was a win for all involved and the feeling Moore experienced after the final signing was mutual. With the acquisition of Top Gun Security, United American Security tripled its presence in Texas, doubling its presence in Houston and creating new United American Security locations in Dallas, San Antonio, Corpus Christie and Austin.  United American Security is now able to provide better security services to more clients throughout the Lone Star State. Focus on Customer Service “My biggest concern was keeping the employees who had been with me for as long as 15 years,” Moore says. “These people helped me grow my company. United American Security was happy to have them, and that was extremely important to me.” United American Security as welcoming as he could have imagined. UAS subscribes to an open door philosophy, he says, and management is in constant and close contact with all levels of staff. He describes an atmosphere where there are no barriers in communication between security guards, field officers, supervisors, corporate staff, and executive management. “Heck, even the CEO made his cell phone number available to every employee that transitioned from Top Gun. How often does that happen?” As for the staff that followed Moore, “They love the new benefits.” United American Security has the...

UAS Doubles its Security Services in Southeast Florida through a “Seamless” Acquisition

UAS Doubles its Security Services in Southeast Florida through a “Seamless” Acquisition Mitch Price had no interest in selling his southeast Florida security guard company. Florida State Security Services, Inc.(FSS, www.flstatesecurity.com) was based in West Palm Beach Florida and Price had been happily running the firm for nearly 20 years. But a close colleague in the security services industry urged him to keep his mind open. With this counsel in mind, late last year, when United American Security approached Price, he agreed to a meeting. In fairly short order, Price was convinced that a merger was the right move. He hired Keith Oringer of Security ProAdvisors (www.securityproadvisors.com), and within weeks, a professional and positive transaction with United American Security was finalized. “Even though United American Security was a much bigger company, their local security and customer service model fit my company’s culture perfectly,” Price explains. “They were able to provide the same service and attention to detail as a small, local company, but with the financial resources of a much larger partner. If I was going to take that leap – to sell my company—I wanted to turn it over to a security services firm that had the same philosophy as I did.” A Customer Service Approach to Security Guards United American Security is indeed known for its superior customer service. With 24/7 access to a supervisor who knows each client’s situation, customers enjoy continuous monitoring and resources to meet their every need. “United American Security provides the customer service model in an industry where strong customer service is sorely lacking,” Price adds. “I feel very comfortable with the...

Best Security Guard Services

  United American Security offers the best security guard services in the industry United American Security (UAS) is unique among the 8,000 security guard companies across the United States. Our “just right” size provides clients with an approachable manager or on-site supervisor who knows the details of your business while still providing 24/7 back-office support for administrative needs. The Big Four Unlike the larger security guard companies in the industry—Allied/Universal, U.S. Security, G4S, and Securitas—United American Security places a premium on customer service. According to Scott Kaeser, UAS Vice President, “The Big Four have become so large and impersonal, their primary focus is the bottom line. They tend to offer the lowest price but in turn also offer the lowest level of service.” At United American Security, our primary focus is the client. We act like a local guarding company, maintaining regular contact with our customers and guaranteeing thoughtful attention to every detail. Providing first-rate customer service is a UAS core value that permeates all levels of the company. We hire only the best guards, provide them with ongoing training, and pay them well. The result, unsurprisingly, is a collaborative team that provides customers with loyal, intelligent, and respectful security services. And while superior customer service is not possible at “the lowest bid,” UAS is still sensitive to its clients’ budgets. “We realize cost is an issue, and we can be competitive on price and payment terms given our scale,” adds Kaeser. For companies looking for superior services, our price tag is fair and competitive. The Smaller Fish On the other end of the spectrum are the smaller, locally...
