Corps Security teams up with ACP Solutions to offer state-of-the-art protection for the nation’s top events
Corps Security, the UK’s leading specialist security solutions provider, has announced that it has formed an exclusive strategic partnership with ACP Solutions. This landmark agreement will see the two companies combine their respective areas of expertise to deploy innovative security solutions for some of the UK’s leading events.
Based in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, ACP Solutions has carved an enviable reputation for its ability to configure temporary Wi-Fi network connectivity that enables communications at events that present security challenges – eg where there is a large acreage to be secured. Its particular area of speciality is equine events, having completed projects for the nearby Badminton Horse Trials, as well as the Burghley Horse Trials in Lincolnshire.
With the growth in mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, Wi-Fi is now seen as a vital on-site service for staff, traders and visitors. In addition, and as part of a communications infrastructure, event organisers are increasingly looking to utilise high-level surveillance technology that can be operated over Wi-Fi.
ACP Solutions’ director, Phil Platts explained, ‘Security is a major issue for organisers who have to protect staff, visitors and property, and ensure the smooth running of their events. We are increasingly involved with the specification of IP based CCTV and by working closely with Corps Security we are now able to provide our customers with a range of technology to suit a diverse range of applications and the personnel to operate it.’
According to Jason Taylor, Corps Security’s event sales and marketing manager, there is a perfect synergy between the two companies. He said, ‘We have very similar target markets and we are both determined to extend our activity within the sports, leisure and agricultural event sectors. Through the Corps Monitoring Centre (CMC) we have built up excellent relationships with all of our technology partners and we are now in a position to bring these advancements to ACP Solutions and the events sector. What’s more, thanks to our expertise in event security and crowd safety management, we are also uniquely positioned to offer this as part of an integrated security service.
Today’s deployable CCTV systems can transmit live or recorded images directly to a control centre via GPRS, 3G, broadband or wireless LAN. Products can simply be screwed to a wall or fixed to a mast, plugged into an appropriate power source and activated – a process that can take as little as 90 seconds to complete.
Corps Security’s Jason Taylor, concluded, ‘I’m tremendously excited about the prospect of working with ACP Solutions and using our combined expertise to provide truly innovative ways of protecting people and property. This latest strategic partnership will further enhance the reputations of both companies, while allowing us to offer a unique service to the burgeoning events industry.’
