Incentive Lynx Security has secured its status on the Security Industry Authority’s (SIA) Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) register, recording its highest assessment score to date which places the company in the top one percent of security services providers within the UK.
Part of the Incentive FM Group, Incentive Lynx Security recorded a score of 140, achieving near flawless marks in such areas as strategy, processes, financial management and Corporate Social Responsibility.
This score realises an improvement of 14 points on last year’s total audit score of 126, with the SIA explaining that the company “strives to continually improve within the ACS”.
Recognised performance standard
The ACS is the recognised performance standard for the security sector. The standard applies to the processes that manage and control an organisation’s services and prescribes systematic control of activities to ensure that the needs and expectations of customers are met.
It’s designed and intended to apply specifically to a wide range of services offered by companies in the private security sector, including security guarding, door supervision, CCTV operation, close protection, key holding, Cash and Valuables in Transit and vehicle immobilisation.
Acquired by the Incentive FM Group in February 2012, Incentive Lynx Security records annual sales of £12 million and employs 450 staff. In its latest ACS report, the SIA stated that the acquisition has allowed the security specialists to “take advantage of best practices from other divisions within the Group”.
The company prides itself in its strong relationships with customers including the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, IPC Media, Broadgate Estates, Land Securities, Knight Frank and James Andrew RSW.
Rajeev Pradhan, operations director at Incentive Lynx, said: “We’re very pleased with the results from the assessment and to be ranked so highly within our industry.”
