Broadstone and TrackTik address staffing needs of private security industry

Technology start-up Broadstone and cloud-based security workforce management solution provider TrackTik have announced a partnership integration deal which will see the latter integrate with Broadstone’s ‘Labour-as-a-Service’ technology.

Canada-based TrackTik helps organisations to manage all aspects of their security personnel via a single software solution. Already an established player in North America and actively expanding in the UK, TrackTik’s new partnership with will accelerate its continued growth in the EMEA market.

The Broadstone platform uses data and automation to solve complex tasks that traditional temporary staffing agencies would handle on a day-to-day basis. Key tasks such as payroll management, background checking and Security Industry Authority licence checking, company-worker matching and performance management are automated for both the company and employees seeking permanent and temporary contracts.

The new partnership will mean that TrackTik’s offer will allow customers to simply push shifts that cannot be filled by existing staff through to the Broadstone community. A pool of screened workers will be matched and then scheduled into the TrackTik solution.

The integration will give TrackTik’s customers complete visibility of their current and contingent workforce, including the ability to see when temporary staff are clocking in and out for shifts, with a real-time overview of the temporary staffing costs being incurred.

Trusted workforce management solution

Broadstone’s co-founder and CEO Tom Pickersgill said: “This latest partnership with TrackTik sees us integrating with a well-established and trusted workforce management solution. We choose our partners very carefully. This latest partnership arrangement represents a great strategic win for both companies, and particularly so given our aspirations to break into the US market by 2021. TrackTik has a great reputation in the region for providing a solution which offers organisations an easy way in which to optimise their security workforce’s operations. Given its focus on this regulated market segment, the services we offer will be a perfect fit and further bolster TrackTik’s solution when it comes to providing a friction-free experience.”

Brian Strasser, TrackTik’s senior director of partnerships, added: “The deal that we’ve signed with Broadstone is a perfect example of how we provide additional value to our clients. Our strategy is to partner with leading and innovative technology companies in an effort to provide our customers with an even greater suite of capabilities.”

Mark Folmer FSyI CPP, TrackTik’s vice-president with a focus on the security industry, said: “Our focus, knowledge and experience in the security sector, coupled with Broadstone’s unique capabilities, is a great combination that will help our mutual clients efficiently respond to the ever-changing resource allocation landscape.”
