By Troy McCanna, Chief Security Officer, Senior Vice President of Revenue Operations, Robotic Assistance Devices

As we step into 2024, businesses across North America are meticulously reviewing their budgets for the upcoming year. One critical question lingers in boardrooms and among key decision-makers: “How can we save money in 2024 without escalating our security risks?”

In this era of rapid technological advancement and evolving threats, it’s essential to reassess traditional security strategies. It’s here that RAD (Robotic Assistance Devices) presents a compelling answer, offering a suite of solutions that are not only cost-effective but also proven in enhancing security capabilities.

The Need for a Security Overhaul

For CSOs, CFOs, and CEOs, the security budget is often a significant line item, fraught with traditional costs like manned guarding services and outdated surveillance systems. Yet, in an age where efficiency and technological innovation are paramount, sticking with these legacy systems may not just be costly but also less effective. The challenge lies in adopting solutions that offer not just security but also value for money.

Enter RAD’s Innovative Solutions

RAD’s suite of security solutions, including AVA™ (Autonomous Verified Access), ROSA™ (Responsive Observation Security Agent), TOM (The Office Manager), and the RIO™ (ROSA Independent Observatory) series, are designed to tackle these challenges head-on. They embody the convergence of AI and robotics, offering a futuristic approach to security that aligns with the budgetary and operational needs of modern businesses.

Cost-Effectiveness Meets Advanced Security

The cornerstone of RAD’s appeal lies in its potential to significantly reduce security budgets – by up to 85% as reported by some companies. This reduction is achieved by minimizing the reliance on human guards and the associated costs of salaries, training, and benefits. Instead, RAD’s autonomous solutions provide continuous, reliable security coverage.
