Improving operational efficiencies, building a strong internal brand, connecting employees and improving customer service with Timegate.
Total Security Services (TSS) is a leading UK security services provider, which employs over 4,000 people and operates from a network of regional offices. The growth of the business meant that Total was outgrowing its paper-based employee communication process and needed to find an efficient and effective solution. Each regional office operated independently, with different ways of processing employee queries, and communication between locations was limited. Total wanted a solution which would improve operational efficiencies, build a strong internal brand, connect employees and improve customer service. It also needed to enable engagement with employees both centrally and remotely.

Raj Chadha, IT Director, at Total Security Services expands: “TSS is committed to continual investment in technology to enable a consistently high quality of service to our customers, and to ensure the safety and camaraderie of our staff. We were keen to find a software solution that would support more streamlined communication and ultimately enable us to make time and cost savings across the company. Timegate from Innovise was already helping us deliver a better, transparent service, so the adoption of the Engagement Pack was the natural next step in achieving our objectives.”

Time is saved and back-office efficiency improved, with employees able to self-serve and make themselves available to work, or request to work any free shifts. Raj concludes: “Openness and transparency are key to the TSS way of working. Our partnership with Innovise has helped us improve customer service and employee productivity, increase back-office efficiency, and improve employee engagement.”
