We have Muneer Mohammed, Founder of Stroztech on Tech Tools. In this section, we share how some of the amazing entrepreneurs, business leaders and trailblazers manage their work and day with the help of the many technology tools out there.

While many security guards are hesitant to continue working in Singapore due to a lack of technology and long hours, Muneer Mohammad, the founder of Stroztech, is aiming to bridge the gap between security technology companies and security guarding agencies while addressing the labour shortage in the security manpower industry. He has over 15 years of experience in the building technology and engineering fields.

Here are the 5 tools that help Richard Nilsson, CEO and Founder, MyPetGo, manage his work

He has gained a better understanding of the physical security industry over the last five years. His experiences have enabled him to quickly grasp business or industry processes and concepts, as well as apply solutions or advice in terms of managerial or technical aspects.

He previously worked as a lead project engineer at Honeywell and as an IT infrastructure engineer at Hewlett-Packard. His early years were spent working as a bouncer and security guard, which inspired him to establish a company with the goal of improving Singapore’s security landscape.

His goal is to make the security industry more dynamic, beginning with security guards, who will shift from 12-hour shifts six days a week to 8-hour shifts five days a week and will use technology that goes beyond CCTV solutions to offer remote monitoring systems that connect to a real-time command centre.

Stroztech is a security solutions provider that helps apartments and buildings navigate many of their most difficult security challenges. Stroztech, based in Singapore with teams throughout the region, provides effective solutions that employ appropriate security technology and efficient engineering practises.

Manage your visitors with Envoy (Paid)

This feature has been very helpful particularly during the pandemic when we had to work remotely and coordinate visits and teams onsite. Envoy visitor management technology improves productivity for our security operations by streamlining the process of managing and tracking visitors. The platform allows visitors to check in using a self-service kiosk or a mobile app, which reduces the need for on-site staff to manually check in visitors. The platform also automatically captures visitor information, such as contact details and purpose of visit, and creates digital visitor badges for secure entry into the building.

This eliminates the need for manual visitor logs and physical visitor badges, which can save time and improve security. Additionally, Envoy can integrate with other security systems, such as access control and alarm systems, to provide a more comprehensive security solution. The software also has a feature that allows employees to pre-register their visitors, which streamlines the check-in process and reduces wait times for visitors.

There’s a lot of time wasted when looking at bank statements and deciphering bank codes.

It was easy to create and send invoices, track payments, and manage bills, all from a centralized platform. Additionally, Xero offers integrations with popular tools such as banks. I love this bank reconciliation feature. Xero also has a mobile app and I can simply snap photos of those tiny receipts. No more wasting time pasting all these small receipts on piece of A4 paper just to scan them and file somewhere.

Tracking our expenditure is important is running a business. I like that I have a clear and easy to look at dashboard that tells me who we owe and who owes us. Since its cloud-based we do not need to come to office to issue invoices or quotes which also helps us especially during the pandemic.
