I would recommend Logosoft to any business that spends too much time rostering, contacting on-duty staff or gathering data to run invoice or pay routines. Logosoft’s products have changed a complex set of manual procedures into a few seconds work.

The main benefit of Patrol Manager is that it is all in ‘real-time’, there is no need to visit sites and download patrol data – that information is old news whereas with the information from Patrol Manager we can monitor what the guards are doing at all times and react immediately to any problems.
Earl Knight, Managing Director, CE Security
Our experience with both the platform and the Logosoft team has been by far the best - having used several competitors in the past I can safely say that Logosoft software and customer service are second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend Logosoft to anyone who is looking for a turnkey software solution.
Jay Dunbar, Managing Director, Facilitas Group
Since using Logosoft we have found that we can collate more information more accurately which frees up time in other areas.
