““Having never worked with Cobus before this project meant that we had to rely on recommendations witch turned out being very accurate. We found that Cobus were very easy to work with and they have provided an excellent access solution tailored to our company requirements. We would highly recommend The Cobus Communications Group to other businesses without hesitation.” ”

Richard Stockdale, Operations Manager, Olam Foods

Olam highlighted that due to the nature of their business, manual lock and key solutions was causing potential security and contamination risks due to little access control and monitoring.
We were approached by Olam who highlighted that they currently had a small access control system in place but didn’t know how it worked and how it could benefit them. Following this a member of our account management team visited their site, carried out a brief site survey and stressed that the existing access control service was completely bypassed and incorrectly installed. Whilst onsite we showed them what the fundamental issues were and also how it should be correctly utilised. Following our visit we then provided a proposal that clearly indicated what the system was capable of and how it could benefit their business.
With acceptance of our proposal together with a long term maintenance contract, Olam experienced our professional approach and expertise which provided them with the confidence that we could not only deliver a high quality installation, but we are one which they can rely on to maximise their investment. Following our flexible approach to installation, providing clear communication when liaising with staff to get onsite and also providing an element of project management by coordinating with the electrical contractor we proved why so many clients are satisfied with our expert service. Although some of the equipment was installed into hygienic areas our experience with similar companies helped us to meet the installation criteria. Following an organised and immaculate installation we were happy to provide training to all team leaders at Olam so that they could get the most from their equipment.
