They'll listen to and sort out the big issues, while your dedicated manager works at the coal face, agreeing and implementing detailed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for each of the security services you’ve opted for. Depending on your requirements, the following meetings will be put in place: Quality Review meetings Monthly or quarterly, your CSM will meet with key personnel you have assigned. Also present at least once a quarter will be one of Superior’s Senior Managers or Directors. These minuted meetings will provide an opportunity to formally review all aspects of the contract. Quality Performance Review Bi-annually, we invite our clients to complete an in-depth questionnaire that covers areas as diverse as training and contract performance, down to feedback on our Officers’ appearance and their attitude to staff and visitors. Quality Audits We will carry out regular checks to ensure our standards never flag. These independent audits are carried out by personnel who are not involved in the contract. Superior’s Quality, Health & Safety and Training Director will also carry out a separate quarterly review. Finally, Profile’s own network of offices and our mobile teams are subject to regular scrutiny by a number of professional bodies. These include, but are not limited to, regulatory bodies such as the Security Industry Authority, the National Security Inspectorate and the Safe Contractor Scheme.

Long before you sign a contract with Superior's, you will know exactly what you can expect from us and what we have committed to. Our Service Level Agreements are tailored to your organisation’s needs, to your infrastructure, your premises and your people. Then, as the contract gets underway, we start to measure these Service Levels using Key Performance Indicators to make sure we meet and exceed your expectations. In the process, we measure the effectiveness of each individual Security Officer as well as our performance overall against the contract’s Assignment Instructions and agreed Service Level Agreements.
