Top of the class: near perfect audit scores

Top of the class: near perfect audit scores

July 2015 - Pointer was recently audited by Achilles UDVB (Utility Vendor Database). The results were a 100% in 5 of the 6 categories and 98% in the other. Achilles accreditation is used by a number of utility organisations and their principal contractors. The utility market is at the heart of Pointer’s business. A strong set of results, like this, strengthens our competitive position. 

Hugh Lawson, our compliance manager welcoming the results said: ’Achilles UVDB Verify Audits are different from other Management systems as there is a percentage score given based on the organisation’s performance. A comprehensive audit check list is completed over a 2 day audit every year with an Achilles Auditor. Each year the percentage score allows us to continually improve our processes and benchmark against other companies’ performance.'

Sandy Rowan, Pointer Ltd C.E.O. added: ‘What a fantastic achievement. These are an exceptional set of results. I think that we can all take great pride in this achievement. It is a testament to the commitment of everyone in the business to do things right and to keep improving.’ 

Project Profile

Project Profile

Pointer's ability to work at museums and sites of historic interest is evidenced in our recently completed project at York Minster (see above).

The project involved the installation, integration and enhancement of electronic security systems to the newly regenerated underground area of the Minster - particularly the Undercroft and Treasury areas.

Pointer delivered intruder systems with vibration sensors to protect high value assets and artifacts in cabinets, and CCTV systems with people-counting software were installed for Health and Safety purposes. High definition cameras combatted huge variances in lighting.
