Client Portal

With more than 1.5M clock in and clock out events logged annually, the Protos client portal provides real-time visibility into your security program’s performance while allowing for 100% accurate invoicing – down-to-the-minute. Additional advantages include reducing security program costs, capturing valuable data from the security officers and improving accountability of the officers – all while advancing the security industry through innovative technology.

The portal empowers clients to see their program’s health on a dashboard view or leverage the data history for trending and long-term analysis. Popular metrics include on-time clock ins, total assignments per day per location, seeing incident snapshots, reviewing recent QA checks and running on-demand reports such as actual hours worked versus projected hours. Protos’ clients also benefit from incident transcripts, audio recordings and vendor performance all stored within the client portal.

Dedicated Service Agent

All clients are assigned a Service Agent as their single point of contact. Service Agents are available for your day-to-day matters as well as routine service assessments to ensure you are receiving the best possible service. Additional support is added through a Strategic Account Manager (SAM), ensuring we are scaling to meet your needs as your security program grows. The SAM acts as a client advocate and offers strategic security program guidance.

These account team members are backed by our 24/7 dispatch and operations team, meaning assistance is always available. In addition to monitoring daily events, your Service Agent assists with billing and invoicing, ensuring post fulfillment, new service requests, changes to existing assignments, communicating client portal updates and enhancements, and generally having the health of your security program in mind.

Quality Assurance

QA is a companywide priority at Protos which is evident through our customer service quality assurance checks and our ongoing software quality assurance.

To deliver the best customer experience, our QA Specialists perform location checks every 14 days to ensure proper service is provided at all locations. These results are shared with clients, vendors and Service Agents for evaluation. Over 9,600 QA surveys were performed in 2020 and many were followed by supervisor visits.

A dedicated QA division within the Protos Labs team tests the client portal software to ensure core functionality remains in place while new features are added. Clients submit feedback to our software and account teams which determines the priority of the new enhancements.
