Numze Receives $1.2-million in backing from private investors
There is a new app soon ready to hit the market and it is causing tons of chatter in the security guard industry here in Canada, the USA, and beyond!
Called Numze, this app allows businesses, organizations, and individuals to hire licensed security guards with the touch of a finger. Yes, it’s that simple.
This new Uber-like app is the first of its kind in the world and will also allow licensed security guards to sign-up and start accepting contract work on the spot.
The app, which is set to launch this fall and is fully trademarked and registered, is getting massive support, and has just received $1.2-million in backing from private investors locally and internationally. As well, due to unprecedented interest Numze is looking at an IPO for later on, once all regulatory requirements are met and once discussions are formalized with its banking partners and market officials.
Paul Carson and Ron Hazell are the developers of this new app that is now causing a huge disruption in the security guard industry. The business-duo each has over 30 years of expertise in the security industry and they operate Canadian Protection Services, the parent company of Numze.
Numze now has offices in Burlington, Hamilton, and Toronto, and the new business has plans to soon open offices in New York City, Miami, and Los Angeles.
“We are elated with the support of our new app… I mean it is simply unreal, considering we have not even launched yet,” smiles Carson, who is the CEO and co-founder of Numze.
“It is just incredible to see how many business owners and professionals want change in the security guard industry. For years our niche-service-sector has operated under the ‘same-old-same-old-model’ and it’s all stale. Numze is revolutionizing the entire industry – one that needs a huge makeover. Numze is better streamlining access to licensed security guards for businesses, organizations and individuals. At the same time, we are providing new freelance employment opportunities that never existed before for licensed security guards who want more flexibility with their work schedules, and better pay-rates for shifts.”
The app is easy to use and is ground-breaking in every sense. Welcome to the 21st century, and this new technology is now being embraced by scores of people in the security industry.
All businesses, organizations, and individuals need to do is download the app on their mobile devices and start offering work to licensed security guards. And all licensed security guards need to do is “accept” or “decline” work offered via push-notifications to their personal-profile-platforms.
Simply put, Numze makes hiring security as easy as 1, 2 and 3; and, if you are a security guard, then getting work in your area is a breeze.
Licensed security guards who sign-up to the app will undergo an intense “on-board-screening” process, where they are required to release their personal information and credentials for final approval. Numze has a massive team in place locally, nationally, and internationally to vet each user who signs onto the app. As well, businesses, organizations and individuals will also be closely reviewed to ensure they are legitimate.
What makes Numze so unique is that it will now provide two-way-communication between a business, organization and individual with freelance licensed security guards for hire. This has never been done before in the history of security guarding!
One of the amazing features of Numze is its ability to change behaviour. Imagine, for example, when a guard fails to show up for a shift. That guard is immediately flagged in the system and cannot work another shift until he/she meets with Numze representatives to determine why the shift was missed. Also, the system creates an event database per-guard, so guards that fail to perform regularly will be quickly identified and administratively sanctioned up to and including removal from the app.
But wait – this app gets even better for businesses, establishments and people, and licensed security guards. For the first time anyone can join Numze and book security guards on-an-as-need-basis, and guards can pick up work that fits their schedules. Even better, guards have the option to get paid daily, weekly and biweekly, based on a number of scenarios, like with reviews and ratings.
Numze will be launched this week on the App Store and Google Play. For more information on the app, please visit www.numze.com
