Interpreting Your Security Operations Analytics

By Sadia Hossain

TrackTik’s security workforce management software is not just helpful to get the processes behind your security operations in order. It is also equipped to help you make informed decisions to improve your bottom-line.

 

Incident analytics

When your frontline security reports an incident, you and other relevant stakeholders will receive a push notification to assess the risk. But how do you cultivate this real-time data to provide long-term insight? By grouping and analyzing your real-time feed, you can measure trends, identify new areas of concerns and draw comprehensive data-driven conclusions.

TrackTik’s Guarding Suite gives you access to incident analytics at the site and zone level, which you can access under the Security and Patrol heading in the “Analytics” tab. Field data collected in real-time and incident reports filled out by your security guards are filtered  into charts for your easy viewing.

So what can you do with incident analytics? 

  1. You can view the following preset analytics charts:
  • Incident type sorted by month and year
  • Site incident count sorted by month and year
  • User/reporter of incident(s)
  • Incident severity level sorted by month and year
  • Incident count by month and year

From the preset analytics charts, the incident pie charts provide an overview of the types of incidents reported most often on the property as well the site locations where incidents occur. Another chart, the trend reports show incident trends over time. From the trend reports, you can scroll down to see incident trends organized by days of the week, months of the year and year over year for the site.

 

  1. In addition to the preset analytics charts, here’s a how-to guideline to help you customize your incident analytics view in the “Analytics” tab:
  1. Use the top-left drop-down menu to select the first variable for the charts
  2. Open the next drop-down to select the second variable

Mobile patrol analytics

In order to make your patrol routes more efficient and to ensure that you provide an effective service, you have to make sure to analyze the facts on the ground. You have to take count of your real-time and historic patrol data so as to be able to track the progression of your daily operations and identify drop-offs and other concerns.
