Manguard Plus is a privately owned Irish security company formed in 1996. It is a market leader in the provision of quality security services in Ireland. Employing over 700 staff on nationwide contracts, Manguard has 32 patrol and alarm response vehicles and an annualised turnover of approx. €18 million. In 2015, Manguard acquired a company in the UK with 150 staff, with offices in Chester and London
Together, the company’s owners have over 70 years’ experience in the security industry. Manguard’s Managing Director, Bill Brown has 28 years’ experience in the security industry and is a qualified Chartered Secretary and Fellow of the Security Institute of Ireland. Bill was one of the first board members of the Private Security Authority and is on the Security Industry Joint Labour Committee and Chairman of the National Union of Security Employers.
Since its foundation, the company’s main objective has been to provide a first-class security service to all business sectors. Working in partnership with its clients, the company now has an excellent reputation for providing a flexible, proactive, quality service that is completely customer-focused. The key to Manguard’s success is our ability to consistently “do the small things right every day”. We achieve this by employing the best available staff and by providing them with best-practice training courses and supervisory management. Throughout this process, all of our staff members are managed in a pro-active manner.
Working on behalf of our clients, we are dedicated to designing and implementing the most cost-effective security strategy for them. We base this strategy on a review of the physical, technical, procedural and response elements currently in place. Comparing the review against pre-defined criteria enables us to do a gap analysis and to implement corrective action through training, culture change, policy implementation and supervision.
Where the gap analysis identifies no weakness but a strong security culture, we will ensure that through constant vigilance we will pro-actively promote and sustain this culture. Manguard Plus provide security services to a diverse range of industry sectors, including:
- Local Government
- Property Management
- Motor Distribution
Manguard Plus operates a unique web-based staff portal that can be accessed and updated remotely via a tablet, PC or smartphone. It provides full access to all new company systems and policies and enables staff to communicate remotely to our administrative support teams 24 hours a day via the internet. This gives all employees the ability to make requests to the company on a 24-hour basis.
Manguard Plus includes a bespoke client web portal for the purposes of the contract. If agreed, management information, policies and updates in relation to service issues including health and safety and environmental matters can be posted and stored on the system, to ensure immediate access and effective communication in this regard.
This portal will also provide client management with real-time access to management information and contract specific data. However, a key feature of the system for obtaining feedback is the communications board, which will form part of the home page set-up. Any portal user can access information, send emails or request information.
The system will include information under the following key headings:
- Active guard clock patrol reports (in real-time)
- Vacant property inspection reports (including photographs), if applicable
- Site-specific risk assessments
- Assignment instructions
- Company safety statement
- Manguard company accreditations
- Manguard contacts
- Site rosters
- Security training records
