The future is an electronic daily occurrence book

Today, many security daily occurrence book templates are being replaced by   electronic security daily occurrence booksHere’s five reasons why:

1. Digital occurrence books are more sustainable

Not only do digital occurrence books use less space but also they eliminate paper waste. This helps reduce your carbon emissions.

2. Electronic books offer greater assurance

Paper occurrence books can be lost or spoiled. However, an online daily occurrence book is stored in the cloud and it’s therefore always accessible and secure.

Paper books rely on signatures to confirm who made an entry but, signatures can be easily forged. However, electronic occurrence books rely on usernames and passwords.

3. Digital books are more efficient

Paper books require a manual entry for every event. But, online entries are posted automatically. For example, SIRV posts patrols, incidents and audits to the online daily occurrence book.

4. Online occurrence books save money

Paper is expensive to buy and store. Not only is an electronic occurrence book paperless but also it eliminates the need for storage.

5. One Point of Truth

Paper books may not capture all events because separate incident reports may be filed. However, an online daily occurrence book captures all information in one place.
