PotashCorp Gallagher Security Case Study

The challenge

PotashCorp, the world’s largest fertilizer company by volume, was noticing that inefficiencies arising from their outdated and deteriorating security system were beginning to compromise profitability. PotashCorp needed something suited to their specific business needs that could be fully integrated with existing systems, digitally based, and incorporate a user-friendly interface. 

The Gallagher solution

Driven to ensure a best-in-class, safe, and secure working environment, PotashCorp partnered with Perry proTECH – Digital C.O.P.S. and Gallagher to develop a customized security solution. Gallagher Command Centre provides enterprise level lockdown controls, health and safety competencies, full video integration, and numerous useful features. The system sends notifications while providing an audit trail, video alerts and simplistic report generation.

The business value

It made sense for PotashCorp to replace their entire security system rather than updating the legacy product. By upgrading they realized an immediate $20,000 saving as the system expands, the savings have reached $70,000 and will continue into the future, because with Gallagher the cost per door of their new system will be one-quarter less than that of their previous one.
