Invest in Operations


Owning an alarm business – or any business for that matter – is challenging. Investing in solid operating systems will help you navigate through each challenge and create a strong foundation for the future.

Get your books straight. Maintaining a detailed record of your profits and expenses is necessary in knowing if, when and how your business can grow. Consider delegating these accounting tasks to a bookkeeper that can also assist in developing a process for keeping track of your inventory.

Implementing an inventory management system is crucial to minimizing loss and maximizing profit. Follow our 6 Steps to Proper Inventory Management for your Alarm Business to control your product inventory.

Understand that employees are a driving force behind the success of any company, so be sure you have procedures for hiring, training, and even firing and replacing each member of your organization. Doing so will help ensure you continue to steadily grow, and that you will be able to replace an open position easily if and when the need arises.

Speaking of employees, you will need to pay them! Create a payroll system that will allow for steady payment of each person working for you. Meeting payroll each pay period results in positive employee morale, and helps you avoid any issues with the IRS.

Moving onto customers… how will you get them, and how will you keep them? Your books will show when there are extra dollars to contribute to a marketing campaign, and that is the time to establish a system for marketing your alarm business. Once you have made the sale, the customer happiness and retention processes should begin.

There are many facets to your alarm business, and each needs some individual attention in order to run successfully. By investing in your operations – establishing clear processes for each area of your company – early on, your business has a solid foundation on which to build and grow into a large-scale operation.
