Vertical Plus has transformed the web presence of the monitoring division of the South West’s largest independent supplier of fire and security systems.

Securi-Guard Monitoring Services tasked the web team at Plymouth’s leading e-commerce and marketing company with delivering a brand new website.

Senior management at Securi-Guard – based in Estover, Plymouth – were looking for a highly responsive, mobile friendly site to better showcase its wide range of monitoring services, offered via a state of the art Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).

The ARC celebrated its 20th anniversary in January 2017, and the landmark was an opportunity for the company to ensure it was making the best use of the very latest web technology.

Ivan Bondoc, Web Designer at Vertical Plus, said: “Securi-Guard is probably one of the most instantly recognisable and reputable brands, not only in Plymouth, but across the region.

“The design and function of websites has changed radically in recent years, particularly in relation to mobile devices, so it was important to ensure that a brand with such stature was perfectly placed to capitalise on the very latest technology Vertical Plus can offer.”

Kim Precious, Managing Director – Securi-Guard Monitoring Services, is delighted with the new website.

She said it strongly reflected the company’s status as a modern, forward thinking business dedicated to the highest standards of professionalism and customer service.

“The 20 year celebrations of the ARC provided the perfect opportunity to give our website a major overhaul to ensure it is fit for purpose as digital technology continues to develop at a rapid pace,” said Kim.

“Technological advances have also been very swift in our own industry so we know how important it is to keep pace with the latest developments to ensure we remain as competitive as possible.”

The ARC – the largest receiving centre of its kind in Devon and Cornwall – lies at the heart of the company’s wide range of fire and security monitoring services for clients in the UK and across Europe.

Securi-Guard’s team of operators utilise the very latest technology and signalling systems to monitor fire and intruder alarms, CCTV, as well as the tracking of vehicles and lone/vulnerable workers.

In the last two decades, the ARC has gone from strength to strength with the award of a series of industry accreditations that have reinforced Securi-Guard’s reputation as one of the UK’s foremost monitoring companies.
