MoCo Touch vs Application Driven Software

You may well already be using roster management software from one of numerous vendors in your business already, and as a result you have probably considered using their patrol management software. 

The main drawback with such solutions is that they usually require a downloaded application on your PC to run. This raises several issues...

  • Neither you nor your customers will be able to access the system or its reports from another location;
  • In some instances, the patrol monitoring part of the solution may require an even larger application or module in order to function.  If all you require is to prove staff attendance, this may well not work for you;
  • The installation of an application on your PC means that you are probably being charged a licence fee for every person that wishes to access the system. With Touch you have unlimited end-user mobile and system log-ins. 

In short, MoCo Touch has been designed to enable people with “sharp-end” responsibility for the management of patrols, to set up and manage patrols and shifts quickly, easily and cost-effectively. If you don’t need to report on the middle names of your guard, or the postcode of a location, don’t enter it. If a site ID and/or guard ID suffices, just enter that.

If you just want to “dip your toe in the water” with such a system, we will be able to get you up and running on Touch with a single phone and activated tags for multiple sites and multiple users within an hour. This would simply be impossible with an application based system.


  • What if a customer calls, and you need to check a patrol in the middle of the night, and you are not in the office?
  • What if one of your customers wishes to gain access to patrols done on their own site?

With Touch you can do both of the above, anywhere with an internet connection. In fact, sitting in an internet cafe on the other side of the world, you could check a patrol, or set up and then give access to a customer, in five minutes flat.  With application based software, you cannot.

With Touch, you will only be charged a licence fee when you need a new device. And if you buy airtime from us we will give you the device free. We do not charge any licence fees for access to our back-end management software. You can have as many customers, managers and mobile users on the system as you wish - the only thing that will limit the number of patrols you can monitor is the number of devices you have, and the number of simultaneous patrols that occur. We recommend one device per site.

And finally, you can buy as many, or as few, devices with licences as you wish. One is just fine, to start off with.

Buy MoCo Touch if...

You've considered application based systems and you don’t require the extra functionality of a complete rostering tool. If you or your clients need the ability to monitor and control security movements at any time of the day or night, from anywhere in the world, then MoCo Touch has the advantage.

Buy an application based system if...

You are looking for a complete HR solution and require the shift and personnel management capabilities of a roster manager type application. Also, if the ability to monitor and control security movements from anywhere in the world at any time isn’t an imperative for you or your customers then a locally installed piece of software could be a genuine option for you.
