Facilities management company OCS Group UK, which supports sports stadia and exhibition centers across the UK and internationally has partnered with Halo Solutions to streamline event safety and security at its venues.
Venue and event managers need information in real-time to enable rapid and effective decision-making and they also require robust post-event reporting to support analysis of operational performance, the reporting of incidents during and post-event can be complicated, inefficient and often delayed when applications and tools are spread across various platforms. OCS has partnered with Halo to resolve some of these challenges to drive value for its clients and the visitor experience.
The Halo System streamlines event management from the control room to the staff on the ground, seamlessly connecting multiple agencies, venue functions and disconnected teams like no other system. Delivery teams can log and record incidents using Halo in real-time with user-friendly mobile and desktop applications. The key benefits include: an audit trail for all incidents, simplified data entry with clearly defined forms ensuring only essential information is entered using mobile devices and functionality to insert voice recordings and images to provide further depth of detail, a multi-agency dashboard allowing external partners controlled access, asset mapping and the functionality to digitize security checks, ensuring operational compliance against bio standards, H&S legislation and risk assessments.
Jeremy Dicks, Director of Venues and Events at OCS says: “As a multi-service business working in events, we immediately saw the benefits of Halo. In the current environment, the necessity for an intelligent communication, recording and reporting tool is paramount and the team at Halo provides a truly market leading solution. This partnership allows us to deliver clean, safe and secure events with increased efficiency and ties in directly with our own core values of Care, Expert, Safety, Trustworthy.”
Halo Solutions’ CEO and Co-Founder, Lloyd Major, says: “OCS is a huge British business that safeguards many iconic sites and its client list is a ‘who’s-who’ of the most significant brands in the UK and overseas. The OCS has been magnificent in its support, insights and recommendations for some brilliant new features that will continue to benefit the whole industry. We look forward to working with OCS over the coming years and continuing to push the boundaries of disruptive, technological innovation for venues and stadia.”
