Why do accreditation’s matter?


When choosing a security company, it can be hard to know who you can trust, especially if you feel you may be in a vulnerable position to begin with. After all, you are entrusting the security of your home and livelihood to someone you may not know. So how can you know who to trust?

This is where accreditation’s help you in making an informed decision. Third party certifications and quality marks show you which companies can actually be trusted, because they have already been through rigorous standards testing, being audited and earned their accreditation on merit and performance.

Accreditation’s cut down the guesswork, aiding you in researching as a new customer, by proving that this company is trusted, reliable and had passed the stringent processes to warrant being awarded the appropriated accreditation’s for its products and services. Each year Rancom Security are audited by the awarding bodies, for us this is important for us to know we are achieving a status only those who are trusted are granted year on year and for our customers to know they have chosen wisely.

You will see all over the Rancom Security website that we have numerous accreditation’s, please click on the links on the foot of the page or in the accreditation’s section in our website.

So let’s take a little look at what each of them mean:

CPA Survey ResultsAt Rancom security, we thrive on taking care of customers, and providing them with peace of mind. Especially as a lot of our customers come to us having experienced an incident that has got them thinking about their security, and who deserve to have someone to take care of it for them.


But our jobs are enhanced even more when we receive kind words back regarding our service or system.

Recently we had our results back from our CPA (Consumer protection association) survey which is taken each year, where Rancom customers are asked for their own evaluation of Rancom’s professionalism and quality.



This year we have manged to not only maintain impressive results, but improve upon them too!

CPA Pie Chart

The survey showed 99% of our customers would award us “good”, “very good” or “excellent” in regards to our overall services, which is up from 92% last year.

It also showed that for another year running, 100% of customers would not only say that we worked efficiently and were courteous and professional, but 100% also said they would recommend us.

This is a great reflection of the hard word we put in to providing a great customer service, and results we hope to keep replicating year on year.

You may have noticed we also recently updated our testimonials page. As a lot of our testimonials are hand written and handed in to engineers, they take pride of place on the walls of our head office, to remind us of the fantastic things we have achieved for our customers.

However, we thought it was a shame not to share these with our future customers, so we regularly update our testimonial page not only with comments posted to our site, but also with the handwritten notes we are given.
