Chwarae Teg Event

Chwarae Teg (Welsh for 'fair play') is a charity whose stated mission is "to help ensure that Women in Wales can enter the workplace, develop their skills and build rewarding careers". At the Virgin Money Lounge in the centre of Cardiff last night, Chwarae Teg launched their new 'FairPlay Employer Network' with an event that brought together representatives from numerous Welsh businesses, including IDS Security Systems Ltd.

As a woman-led company, we at IDS Security are very much aligned with what Chwarae Teg are working to achieve. Our Managing Director Julie Halton attended the FairPlay Employer Network event in Cardiff last night and found it to be an inspirational experience. The primary topic of focus for the evening was inclusive recruitment and how it can drive success when done correctly - guest speaker Ryan Cullen gave a very insightful talk on this subject, using his own employer DevOpsGroup as a real-life example of the benefits that can come from switching to a more inclusive recruitment policy.

This was the first of what promises to be a most enlightening series of Chwarae Teg business events, and we look forward to details of the next FairPlay Employer Network evening.

IDS Security Solutions

Here at IDS Security Systems Ltd, we aim to supply each and every client with a security solution that's tailored to their specific needs. No two premises are the same, and we don't believe it would be possible to meet the unique requirements of the companies and individuals we work with by selling the same off-the-shelf security package to all of them.

With that in mind, here's a rough guide to the process we follow to ensure that each and every customer gets the security solution that's right for them:

1. Your initial enquiry

The first thing you need to do is get in touch with the team here at IDS. You can do this via telephone or email, although it may be easiest to simply fill out the form on our Contact page - all we need is your name, a way to contact you, and a rough idea of what you need from us (e.g. CCTV cameras or a door entry system).

2. Visiting your site

Depending on what exactly you need from us, we may be able to provide a quotation based on your initial enquiry alone. However, if you require a slightly more complex security solution - or if you're not quite sure what exactly you need - then one of our trained and verified engineers will be happy to visit your premises in person. They will use their experience and their specialist knowledge to assess your site and its security requirements before recommending the best possible security solution for you.

3. Providing a quote

Once a decision has been made on what exactly you require, we will provide a detailed estimate on how much our services will cost. Our prices are extremely competitive, and so we think you'll be very satisfied with the quote you receive from us!

4. Installing your security system(s)

If you're happy with your quotation and you decide to give us the green light, we'll dispatch our experienced installation team to your premises to set up your new security system(s). Our engineers are verified by all of our suppliers, so rest assured that they know exactly what they're doing! Once installation is complete, we'll also make sure that you fully understand your new system and how to use it - of course, if you have any questions further down the line, you can reach us 24/7 by calling 029 20 753 251.

5. Monitoring and maintenance

If you wish, you can choose to sign up for an IDS Security maintenance contract - if you do so, we will monitor your system 24 hours a day, all year 'round, making sure that there are never any holes in your site's security. We will also carry out regular maintenance visits and, if necessary, quick repairs at any time of the day or night.
