The Vancouver Police caught a thief on our Broadway construction site the other day so I thought it was time to write you a quick note to tell you how happy we are with our Sonavision construction site monitored video system.
We have employed Sonavision at our active construction sites for well over a year. Presently we have four construction sites and our corporate equipment compound protected with Sonavision. I have been in the construction industry for 19 years and I am well versed in how ineffective and expensive guards are at protecting construction sites. My experience is that guards sleep through, run from, are part of, or not even on site when a break-in occurs. Sonavision has allowed us to save significant dollars by eliminating guards and has made us more operationally efficient by offering us the ability to review live and recorded activity at sites remotely by means of the internet. Most importantly, these operational efficiencies and better protection helps us save money, be more competitive in the bid process and therefore win more projects.
Please pass our thanks along to the VPD for their prompt response and capture of the thief in the act. While you are at it, please thank the RCMP for apprehending the thief that they caught at our Discovery Green site last month!
