Colchester Parking Case Study

“Orbis provide a great level of protection for our Civil Enforcement Officers who often find themselves in volatile situations with members of the public due to the nature of their job. Orbis Sentry is a great way to monitor and manage all of our officers across all areas from a single PC. The system is set up so it is simple to use and the weekly information displayed and reports it generates are a great performance indicator per individual. They have always gone above and beyond and been able to provide solutions to any issues.

The monitoring service that is provided is invaluable to our officers who often need the reassurance that they are protected whilst on patrol in known troublesome areas. This is not a service provided by all lone worker service providers but a necessary one for us. Simply, our officers could not go out on patrol without them and therefore they keep our parking operations across North Essex running. Good, constant communication from Orbis means we are always kept up to date on latest services and products available.”
