No delete button

The occurrence book does not allow the deletion of entries. Therefore, your audit trail is safe. If a mistake is made then a new version, linked to the old entry, is made.

Entries cannot be made in the future

The online occurrence book does not allow an entry to be made in the future. This stops a user listing out duties before they have undertaken them.

Business Case

Until recently security guards have used paper daily occurrence books (DOBs) to record events. In the event of an incident going to court the book may be presented as evidence. Therefore, security companies have to store books for at least six years.

Over the last few years a number of security companies have made the move to online books. What are the benefits and risks of the switch?

1) Sustainable

There is no need to find storage space for online occurrence books. In addition, switching from paper to cloud computing reduces carbon emissions.

2) Greater assurance

Who made an entry and when it was made in a paper book is not always clear. However, because SIRV gives every user a username and password it is easy to identify users. Moreoever, because every entry is given a timestamp there is no doubt when the entry is made.

3) Digital books are more efficient

Getting old archived paper books is costly and time consuming.  It is easy to view and access an online book.

Paper books can be spoiled and made illegible. As a result, audit trails are broken. SIRV maintains an audit trail by using a versioning system and not allowing the deletetion of entries. 

4) Cost Saving

It is expensive to buy and store paper carbom copy books. Online occurrence books reduce this cost.

5) Mobilisation

Rolling-out the SIRV occurrence book is quick and easy.

6) One source of information 

Incidents are often recorded on separate forms and missed from paper books. As a result, the full story is not always told by paper books. SIRV gives users one point of truth because it automatically posts patrols, incidents and audit as entries to the occurrence book.

Risks

All cloud computing solutions depend on web access. Therefore, without access to the intenet the occurrence book is inaccessible. However, the SIRV mobile application can store entries locally and without web access. As a result, any interruption to web service does not prevent entries being made.

Conclusion

An electronic occurrence book has many benefits and few risks.
