Veritech Systems has completed its recent SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) audit, achieving an incredible score of 118 out of 145.
This follows years of hard work within Veritech as we continue to develop infrastructure and processes, in search of being the best in our industry. Only months before, we completed a move to our new state-of-the-art premises in the centre of Southampton, including a bespoke control centre to better support our continuously expanding list of security-conscious clients, as well as our push for ARC Accreditation (Alarm Receiving Centre).
The board of directors are extremely proud of all our staff after achieving ACS status for the second year running. This year has come with many challenges due to the uprated scoring system and our head office having just moved to our own premises. One of the many improvements has been the addition of a dedicated training room which has allowed us to expand our staff development program, which includes bespoke courses on behalf of our customers.
Being able to achieve a score of 118 on the new scoring system is mainly attributed to the support of our staff in continually improving our standards for health & safety and quality management. Our ACS score puts us within the Top 10% of UK Security Companies.
Managing Director of Veritech Systems Ltd, Paul Oldridge says: “This is and always has been a team achievement, I am very proud of the entire team, without them the business would never be where it is today. We retain staff and this shows you why. The key fundamental thing in achieving a successful business is your staff with quality training, full involvement, operational transparency, respect and rewards – they are as important as customers. Being the best at what you do will then come naturally and a lot easier to achieve and maintain. ”
Over the coming months we will be continuing to develop our industry-leading training and look at joining some of the UK’s most prestigious security industry groups such as Pacesetters.
