We don’t want to struggle to be the largest or number one security company, but rather put in efforts to keep their limited clients, who have invested their trust in them, happy and satisfied. – Abhay asserts.
Converting Challenges into Opportunities
Lack of knowledge amongst new entrants to the security industry: Due to improper understanding of the subject, this has resulted in increased number of incomplete projects and in turn increased mistrust with the clientele. The security industry has seen a boom in the past decade.
This has attracted a number of new players ranging from a startup to well established IT giants, to explore the security industry. With big companies under quoting several projects and few eventually closing down as well, the pricing equation has been disturbed. Startups, with lack of knowledge on security systems, at times, fail to understand the client’s requirement and miss out items while quoting a project. Though in several instances they succeed in getting the orders then, the project rarely sees a closure.
Whether it is government organization or corporates, the biggest challenge is that they all want the best solution at the lowest cost. Since security comes last on the chart, the leftover funds are only to be utilized and still expect the best to be delivered.
Acktron faithfully ponders that training is an investment; the majority of the short term players feel that as an expense and take a shorter route of experimenting on projects, at the client’s expense. Once a bad example is set, it creates a problem for all on future projects, with the client getting over cautious and withholding payments for the extra-long duration.
With the technological advancement, the product models get obsolete in a very short span of time. This is yet another challenge that they as a service provider face while supporting a project. The short-lived products are a cheap and attractive option for most of the newcomers in the industry. It is only at a later stage the end clients realize that those options come out to be more expensive, when the entire system needs a replacement.
Acktron have tried with their experience to narrow down on the OEMs who have the past record of supporting their products for a longer duration. Though they charge a premium, the better part is that the client installation is well supported and the site operations are undisturbed.
Diverse Kinds of Strategic Approaches to Stratify Clients Requirement
Flexible approach and timely deliveries are prime concern for Acktron and they are doing it magnificently. Presently, they are doing a project with their satisfied end client who wants Acktron to be there.
Almost all their clients are well-known brands in India and globally, and Acktron are fortunate to serve them. They believe in working as partners rather than in a client-vendor relation and hence, their flexible approach helps them easily tune with the systems and policies of their esteemed clientele. Whether small size or a large project, each client account gets personalized attention. While these may appear to be add-ons to the work for them, it is very well appreciated by their clients and provides them a high level of trust and contentment.
At Acktron, they never claim to be the perfect organization, but they do seriously act upon any escalation that comes from their clients and tries to get the resolution at the earliest possible time.
Acktron have worked on several projects, so far, the most satisfactory experience was on a project of Bharti Realty, in Aerocity, New Delhi. Aerocity is a campus developed in the close vicinity of IGI Airport, New Delhi and has commercial buildings and star hotels. Due to its proximity to the airport, this campus is governed by strict security norms and each building requires a NOC from the law enforcement agencies before the building can be made operational. There are two independent bodies which do the due diligence, Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and Special Security Committee, comprising of mainly senior officers from Delhi Police and IB.
There are broad guidelines that need to be followed and security arrangements to be done to comply with them. And there was no concession allowed from either of the two agencies. Either comply 100% or don’t operate the building. This was an experience, where security had its own budget and for the first time in India, a building needed NOC for security clearance.
Worldmark-2 was the first building, for which Acktron was awarded the order for implementing the required security arrangements. They had signed an undertaking to assure the client that no matter what it takes, they will ensure a smooth handover of the project after getting them through the inspection process.
Acktron had put in all their resources and got excellent support from their resources for out of the way expedited deliveries. Their operations team has worked day and night to complete the cabling work in time.
For Acktron, it was one of the most stringent trials that were being done, but their team was enjoying the experience and answering confidently to the queries raised by the inspection team. The company team went away after the inspection and the message was received after 48 hours that the approval has been granted by the visiting team. Also, their client was extremely happy with the outcome. Acktron has rewarded by the client with the award of two more projects of Worldmark-1 and Wordmark-3, in the same Aerocity campus
Future Developments
Presently, Acktron is working on technological advancements of facial recognition system and AI (Artificial Intelligence), specific to security applications. Already investments have been made by the company on the subject, in terms of dedicated manpower, training, infrastructure and client awareness.
They believe that this is an excellent tool for the law enforcement agencies to assist them in narrowing down from a list of millions of suspects on a life or recorded CCTV footage. Though there has been a significant achievement in face recognition technologies, there much more which is needed to achieve the higher level of accuracy in a more practical environment.
They are trying to work mutually with the global leaders in face recognition engine and customized as per the Indian conditions and requirement. Face recognition system has already found a place in almost all the smart city surveillance tenders, though, by the time it is actually implemented, much more improvements will be seen in the near future.
With an established base of the company in the security industry and keeping in sync with the management theories, Acktron is diversifying themselves. They have plans to introduce defense-grade security equipment, with the intent to serve the forces of the country.  So, they are now working on numerous products which can be offered for the defense forces, which have extremely limited suppliers or service providers, considering the high level of qualification and specialization required. This will indeed take some time and hence the company’s preparation has already started.
