Value Creation

ATEC’s focus is on Creating Value through People, Process and Technology. By integrating Fire and Security systems as part of your organisations framework, value is created by delivering innovative security solutions that:

  • Reduce operational costs
  • Manage business risks
  • Improve staff and operational efficiencies
  • Provide actionable intelligence

By taking an holistic approach, we combine solutions that meet your businesses needs and our initial consultations, findings and recommendations are free of charge. 


The 8 Stages of Value Creation 

A typical process for a security integrator in providing security solutions is to: 

1. Design to instruction 

2. Installation 

3. Maintenance and Support 

Whilst this process works for many installation companies, ATEC takes an holistic view of your organisation and  delivers innovate solutions through people, process and technology that suits your business needs and promotes value creation. 

Our solutions work through 8 stages, which begin at the foundation of your organisational requirements.

The Consultancy process, through stages 1 - 4, allows us to to achieve future-proof security solutions that create demonstrable business value. The keys to ATEC's security consulting success and agility, are that it can leverage in-house talent, experience and up-to-the-minute market knowledge to achieve results in the most cost-effective manner possible.
