Per­sonal Touch and Full Ser­vice Sets Fu­sion Se­cu­rity Apart

Com­pany looks at the big pic­ture to de­liver com­plete safety in an evolv­ing mar­ket

BC Business Magazine - - Fusion Security -

What does it take for a busi­ness to be safe? It’s a ques­tion more salient than ever for com­pany own­ers and man­age­ment, es­pe­cially as com­pa­nies grow their as­sets.

Se­cu­rity cam­eras are one op­tion. Locks are vi­tal. And if the busi­ness is a vul­ner­a­ble con­struc­tion site or fac­tory, guards may be a ne­ces­sity.

Un­for­tu­nately, the se­cu­rity in­dus­try is dom­i­nated by spe­cial­ists who pro­vide only one type of solution, when even the lay busi­nessper­son in­stinc­tively knows that a holis­tic ap­proach to safety — along with an in­te­gra­tion of var­i­ous el­e­ments — is re­quired.

Burn­aby-based Fu­sion Secu- rity is the pre­ferred choice for a wide range of clients. Fu­sion spe­cial­izes in all as­pects of se­cu­rity: from per­son­nel, mo­bile pa­trols and re­sponse, to elec­tronic sys­tem in­stal­la­tion, mon­i­tor­ing, and hard­ware.

Equally cru­cial to client safety is Fu­sion’s fo­cus on risk assess­ment.

“It’s im­por­tant to un­der­stand not only the client’s busi­ness but also the neigh­bour­hood in which that busi­ness op­er­ates,” ex­plains Fu­sion pres­i­dent Bruce Mar­gin­son. “What is the crime rate and what type of crimes take place? Ev­ery­thing must be an­a­lysed and un­der­stood in or­der for us to pro­vide an in­te­grated range of ser­vices con­tain­ing the most ef­fec­tive el­e­ments.”

Fu­sion Vice-pres­i­dent Harry Staus­gaard adds: “The pro­grams we cre­ate on be­half of our clients also take into ac­count that busi­nesses — as well as the neigh­bour­hood dy­nam­ics — could eas­ily change over time, re­quir­ing ei­ther a step­ping up or a re­duc­tion of se­cu­rity.”

Just as se­cu­rity risks are plen­ti­ful and ever chang­ing, so too must be the so­lu­tions. Cus­tom­ized so­lu­tions have dis­tin­guished the com­pany since its in­cep­tion over a decade ago and which arose from Mar­gin­son, Staus­gaard and other per­son­nel hav­ing spent more than 30 years keep­ing peo­ple, prop­erty and in­for­ma­tion safe — and de­ter­min­ing the most ef­fec­tive meth­ods of do­ing so.

A highly se­lec­tive hir­ing process, as well as due dili­gence to ac­quire and re­tain the best staff through gen­er­ous, per­for­mance­based com­pen­sa­tion are sev­eral dis­tin­guish­ing fea­tures of the com­pany. This is es­pe­cially ben­e­fi­cial to clients, con­sid­er­ing the se­cu­rity in­dus­try in Canada is grow­ing so rapidly that there is a chal­lenge in hir­ing qual­ity em­ploy­ees.

“Man­power is one of the costli­est com­po­nents of se­cu­rity, so we en­sure our clients get the best,” says Mar­gin­son.

It is cru­cial to be up to date on the lat­est news, tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ments, and best prac­tices in the se­cu­rity in­dus­try.

“Demon­strat­ing value is key, and we will not do any­thing un­nec­es­sar­ily,” says Mar­gin­son, who men­tions an in­stance when Fu­sion was called in by a busi­ness owner who wanted to re­place his mon­i­tor­ing cam­eras with new ones: “An anal­y­sis de­ter­mined that they didn’t need to be re­placed, only repo­si­tioned.”

Keep­ing up with tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances also re­sults in en­hanced value for clients. “We have cam­eras that don’t merely de­tect mo­tion, they dis­tin­guish be­tween peo­ple and an­i­mals, which means fewer false alarms and, in some in­stances, a re­duced need for man­power,” says Staus­gaard.

Mar­gin­son and Staus­gaard are proud of the fact that their com­pany is one of the few lo­cally owned se­cu­rity providers in B.C.

“We’re still small enough to be ag­ile and work closely with clients, yet big enough to ful­fil any se­cu­rity need. That’s rare to find th­ese days,” says Mar­gin­son. ■
