Securing real estate excellence:
Demand the highest levels
in safety and security

Security and safety are crucial for real estate portfolios because it safeguards assets, reduces liabilities, enhances reputation, ensures compliance, mitigates
risks, and contributes to long-term value and sustainability.

Providing a consistent approach to critical security events across various property types such as commercial, shopping centres, retail and industrial properties, is essential for effective risk management and tenant safety. Zinc Synapse supports property owners, agents, and investors as an integral part of their property management strategy by delivering a robust and proactive approach to the management of critical events.

Though the digitalisation of security and safety plans, buildings and estates can control and resolve incidents quickly, streamline communication and apply assurance activities that deliver a proactive approach to business continuity and resilience.

Unified data is your key to
strategic success

A unified data source provides a 'single pane of glass' and enables the prioritisation of all safety and security events. This ensures proactive risk management and mitigation, reducing the likelihood of emergencies and their potential impact. Neglecting safety and security data provides increased vulnerabilities, and, in worst cases, catastrophic consequences.
