We implemented ROAR’s Panic Button Security Solution back in 2019 to safeguard our staff, and we’re delighted that we took action before the outbreak of COVID. The solution has enabled our Security team to enlist our employees as additional “eyes and ears,” and we’ve also discovered a surprising benefit in it aiding our guests as well. Our staff has used the buttons to de-escalate arguments, stop domestic disputes, and ensure that they can focus on their tasks rather than deal with guests who are using drugs or homeless individuals attempting to enter our rooms.
