Guard touring, enhanced inspections are the newest capabilities in TEAM’s product offering.

For 30 years, TEAM Software has been in constant pursuit to provide value-added technology for its customers, and that pursuit is evident in our acquisition of Lighthouse, a mobile workforce management platform for janitorial and security contractors. Lighthouse enables complete visibility of field-based teams and provides mobile forms, workflows and powerful reports that improve service delivery and drive operational efficiency across sites. By using workforce management technology, you can control costs, address quality issues, increase customer satisfaction, automate operations and reduce liability for companies with distributed teams.

Lighthouse adds time- and money-saving capabilities that complement TEAM’s existing financial, operations and workforce management solutions to help view, manage and automate operations in the field, including:

For security industry leaders specifically, Lighthouse gives you a guard touring solution with real-time tracking of officers through GPS, geo-fences, beacons or QR codes (learn which tracking technology is right for you here), along with daily activity reports and incident reporting.
