Mitie launch City Class service
Mitie's security management business has announced the launch of its City Class service to customers, industry thought leaders and influencers, at its quarterly thought leadership event, The Kurtzman Club.
Launching initially in London, the risk-led, premium City Class service, converging physical and IT security, has been designed to enable Mitie to focus on securing its customers' reputations, people, intellectual property and assets - delivered by an experienced team that understands the unique challenges of the capital and other major cities.
Recognising that organisations in high-profile cities increasingly require heightened and more sophisticated security measures, Mitie has introduced the City Class offering delivering intelligence and threat awareness combined with highly-skilled people and market-leading technology.
The main differentiator of the service will be the frontline security personnel; Mitie has designed and implemented a bespoke academy to ensure its security professionals are highly trained and situationally aware, upskilled to handle the more challenging and diverse environments they protect, and deliver an elite level of service fitting for the most prestigious buildings.
Jason Towse, managing director of Mitie's security management business said: "The launch of City Class is a really exciting development in addressing the evolving security needs of our customers, in the ever-developing threat landscape. While City Class is not exclusive to the London market and will be applied across other major cities and our national client base, it is the natural region for us to launch the offer."
"City Class takes our risk-based approach to security one step further and is the creation of what will be the sector-leading offer for corporate and strategic clients."
