February 2020 saw Merlin 24/7 on the shortlist for the ‘Outstanding New Security Product’ award at the UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs), hosted at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. This prestigious event celebrates the fantastic work in the security industry, recognising individual and team successes across a range of categories.

The OSPAs are renowned for being an extremely competitive set of awards, with a consistently high calibre of entries. We were absolutely delighted to be victorious, winning the award on the night, showing that the capability and functionality of Merlin 24/7 truly is industry leading. 

Merlin 24/7 won for its innovation in streamlining processes and procedures and capturing data securely in one central location, as well as the enhanced reporting capabilities that deliver much greater visibility on risks and threats to users’ people, assets and environments.

As well as the win for Merlin 24/7, the wider Mitie Security team were celebrating an additional 4 wins, taking home the awards for ‘Outstanding Contract Security Manager / Director’, ‘Outstanding Security Team’, ‘Outstanding Security Installer/Integrator’ and arguably the biggest award of the night, ‘Outstanding Contract Security Company’.

It is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Merlin 24/7 team in developing the award-winning software, with more advancements on the horizon to ensure the product remains industry leading.
