Salt Lake City-based Defencify Training LLC, the security guard industry’s leading online officer training and certification platform, has partnered with Montreal-based Merinio INC to provide intuitive workforce management software to its customers.

The Merinio platform simplifies the back-office operations of private contract security firms. Specifically designed to meet the needs of security agencies, the Merinio Workforce Management software offers guard scheduling, automated shift dispatching, as well as time tracking to streamline payroll and billing.

The solution allows companies to improve profitability through increased shift booking rates and reduced non-billable overtime.

In addition to assisting with workforce planning and scheduling, Merinio provides valuable reporting tools to maximize scheduling productivity.

By automating simple administrative tasks, the platform has been shown to deliver a 75% reduction in costs related to scheduling and shift callouts.

Russ Willmon, co-founder and CEO of Defencify, explains the partnership as a powerful one-two punch for all Defencify customers. “In addition to providing online, self-paced training content of the highest caliber, now we can pair that with a workforce management program that perfectly complements our training and records retention portal. It’s a win-win for our clients by coordinating training along with scheduling, payroll, and billing through a single provider.”

From the other side, Merinio sees the opportunity to partner with Defencify as validation that it has matured into a recognized player in the workforce management space, simplifying and improving the entire security schedule management cycle. “A partnership with Defencify will allow security companies to benefit from the best online training platform, enhancing Merinio’s Workforce Management solution with industry-specific training content,” states Merinio CEO Maxime Gauthier-Bourbonnais. “Both companies aim to offer best-of-breed solutions for security companies to improve their efficiency and profitability. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
