Venture Security locks in Simplyhealth deal

Venture Security has been appointed by healthcare plan provider, Simplyhealth, to protect its four office buildings in Andover and Winchester.

The three-year contract, which has the potential to be extended for a further two years, will see Venture manage all day-to-day physical security for the insurer.

Venture Security, whose head office is located in Andover, will be working closely with Simplyhealth’s facilities management team to provide a range of specialist security services. This includes Venture’s trained and SIA licensed security officers manning reception in all four buildings, locking and unlocking the premises each day, patrolling the sites and responding to alarms. The Venture team will also be providing emergency cover as required.

Gareth Williams, Director of Estates and Environment, Simplyhealth, commented: “After experiencing issues with our previous security provider, we decided to review our options. We were really impressed by Venture, especially in relation to how technology is integrated within their security services. The fact they are a local company was another big tick for us.”

Paul Howe, Venture Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Simplyhealth and to be supporting the facilities team to keep their people, premises and assets safe.

“Customers such as Simplyhealth are increasingly looking at integrated options for their front of house. Our ‘VentureFirst’ officers – so called because they are responsible for delivering a strong first impression – are not only SIA licensed, but also fully trained in customer services. This means they can effectively manage all reception and security duties, while providing a high quality service that is reflective of the position Simplyhealth holds within the industry.”

Founded in 2006, Venture Security is ranked within the top one per cent of UK security providers and supports corporate and residential customers based across central, southern England.

FMJ and Moneypenny Webinar Front of House: First Impressions Count

The webinar will discuss how organisations can maintain a seamless front of house service by employing the latest communications tools.

A major consequence of the pandemic has been the dispersal of staff, clients and stakeholders and the communications headaches that ensued. As offices open back up, social distancing rules means that front of house activities are still being disrupted. This session will advise organisations who are struggling to ensure that both visitor and telephone enquirers are dealt with in a professional and efficient manner, while maintaining the safety and health of both staff and visitors.

The webinar will take place on the 7th October at 11am.
