Commercial Security Project: Bandy’s Pharmacies | Security Alarm

Commercial Security Project Highlight: Bandy’s Pharmacies Posted on April 5, 2019 by

Security for a Pharmacy

Security Alarm has been fortunate enough to provide Bandy’s Pharmacies with commercial security solutions for their main location in Salem, IL for many years.

Bandy’s Pharmacies has grown considerably during this time, opening three additional pharmacies in Centralia, Mt.Vernon, and Irvington. Naturally, with these new locations, their security needs expanding.

We’ve been right there alongside them during their growth to ensure safety and security at each of their pharmacies.

Multi-Location Pharmacy Seeks Comprehensive Security System

However, due to the nature of the pharmaceutical business, there is an added layer of protection required to keep not only the premises secure but medications safe from theft.

Understanding the vulnerability associated with owning and operating a multi-location pharmacy, we recognized that the Bandy family was a perfect candidate for our Business Remote Safe Services. This is an app that would allow them to control all of their stores from one phone.

Overcoming Security Challenges With Business-Specific Solutions

After we proposed Business Remote Safe to Bandy’s Pharmacies, they agreed, believing that by adding remote services they’d overcome various security obstacles.  

Bandy’s Pharmacies had long-experienced the following problems:

  • They didn’t know what employee was turning the alarm on and off.
  • They didn’t know if an employee failed to arm or disarm the system.
  • They didn’t know what time the stores were getting opened and closed each day.
  • They didn’t have the ability to turn the alarm on from their phones.
  • They didn’t have reminders to set their alarm once they left the premises.
  • They didn’t have the peace of mind that comes with complete control.

Once Business Remote Safe was installed, Bandy’s Pharmacies realized they could have peace of mind and ease of use in a comprehensive commercial security system.

Bandy’s Pharmacies now benefits from the following security alarm features:

  • If the alarm was turned on or off by an employee they know exactly who it was.
  • If the alarm was not armed or disarmed by a certain time, they receive a notification.
  • If the alarm was armed or disarmed, they can see exactly what time this occurred. This holds employees accountable for opening and closing the store at the correct time.
  • If an employee forgets to arm the system at night, all the owners or managers need to do is pull up that store on the app, and hit the “arm” button. No driving from out of town just to set the alarm.
  • If they want, they can use their geofencing feature to remind them to arm their systems when they leave the premises. Geofencing sets an invisible “fence” around a property. Once the app detects their phone leaving that set area it will notify them that they have left without setting the alarm.
  • If something security related is going on at any store, or even at their personal home, the Bandys are aware. The Remote Safe App keeps them in control and informed. It gives them peace of mind at night knowing that all their locations are locked up and secured.

Delivering Peace Of Mind & Customer Satisfaction

Bandy’s Pharmacies has been pleased with the product and how it works, but they also have expressed great satisfaction with our sales team, installation techs and the ongoing service they continue to receive.

Security Alarm is thankful for the opportunity to serve Bandy’s Pharmacies and countless other local businesses across Southern Illinois.
