Outlook Mobile Service -
At any time tens of thousands of security guards are busy guarding somebody or something. Hardin Security Ltd. has cut a slice of this lucrative pie and employs a couple of hundred security guards in the UK.
Case study 2: Security Service
Hardin Ltd. offers several security services such as, uniformed and civil shop surveillance, company, building and personal protection and any kind of security patrols.
The different assignments spread over the whole country (even the Shetland Islands) have to be coordinated fail-safe.
Microsoft Outlook 2007 Mobile Service turned out to be the perfect solution for the communication between the office in London and the guards all over the country:
E-mails can be forwarded to the securities - no more annoying dispatch of operation schedules. An SMS reaches the recipient and can be reread. The hands know they are always up to date. It's easy to reach a whole group. SMS are fast, reliable and unambiguous.
Fact: The short and concise communication by SMS results in simple an efficient coordination of hands.
As main instrument of communication, the Outlook Mobile Service is used in combination with ASPSMS.COM
Thanks to the AUTOREPLY feature of the ASPSMS System messages can be sent to Outlook.
The answer messages get sent to the Microsoft Outlook 2007 Inbox.
The coordinator stores mobile numbers of the guards in the Microsoft Outlook 2007 address book. Additionally he holds groups by various criteria.
Rock Hardin who founded Hardin Security Ltd. has just sent a reminder for a self-defense course in Sheffield to the 40 guys of the local Motorcycle Club who are long-serving employees of Hardin Ltd.
SMS-OUT: Hi folks! Don't forget the course tonight at Kings Lane 11 which you have signed up for!
Because of the AUTOREPLY function Rock gets the answer messages from his colleagues in the Outlook 2007 inbox.
SMS-IN: Long time not seen old man. How are you? We're having bbq at the club on tuesday. Would be a pleasure thing to have you over...
A look into his Outlook Calendar tells Rock that there is no reason to refuse this invitation. He gets a train ticket online and marks Tuesday and Wednesday of the following week as holiday.
SMS-OUT: Hi Dan, nice to hear from you and thanx for the invitation! I'll be there. And I will bring the whisky - the good one!! See you Tuesday..
It's easy to set up a reminder SMS: Rock right clicks the concerning item in the calendar, selects forward as text message, enters his own number as recipient and amends the sentence with "get whisky!!". With the option Schedule Send he schedules the text message for Monday evening.
