Area of Investigation:
PEACEKEEPER SECURITY and INVESTIGATION AGENCY started their operations in October 1985 as a single proprietorship. They became incorporated in July 16, 1986, and have since operated as PEACEKEEPER SECURITY and INVESTIGATION AGENCY, INC. in October 1997, a new group composed of employees who helped run the agency through the years, bought the company. These young people all of whom rose from the rank shared their expertise and considerable experience and together they form the new PEACEKEEPER organization determined to establish its niche in the industry as the “agency with a difference”. The company is headed by President and General Manager Eduardo L. Pestaño, a Certified Security Professional (CSP), a member of the Philippine Society for Industrial Security (PSIS) , and is bounded by his thirty-two solid years of experience in security work which enables him to execute the daily operation of the agency. Assisting him is Chairman Henry P. Himantog, a Business Administrator and Law graduate with thirty one years’ of experience in the field of security, and Vice President Rodolfo V. dela Cruz, a Certified Public Accountant and also a Law graduate, with twenty three years’ of experience in the industry. PEACEKEEPER specializes in commercial and industrial guarding, and develops expertise in Surveillance and Detection, Background Investigation, and VIP Security. It has a SPECIAL ACTION TEAM (SAT) trained in civil disturbances control whose members are crowd control veterans experienced in the proper management of labor related disturbances, i.e. Strikes and Lock-outs, pickets, etc. The administration pays a lot of time and effort into keeping track of all their employee data, files, and information. Calculations of salaries and hourly remunerations, bonuses, sick leaves, benefits, taxes, and deductions are also part of their duties, so keeping documented files filled track records for each and every employee has been the story for the company. It is highly important for the Agency to maintain the confidentiality of its files and information. Therefore the proponents would like to give them the assurance that no one, aside from the authorized user(s), can access and/or harm their files. Due to the overcrowding of files, employees had a hard time finding the right data they’re looking for. But because of the automated system they can easily look for specific data / information in seconds. Also, the agency’s monitoring system is vital to its operation therefore if we can maintain a good monitoring system, the quality level of the agency will greatly be increased. With system upgrade and enhancement, the agency would be able to ride along the fast-paced technology, giving their clients excellence service when and where they need it. In our ever-changing world, it is out most important to provide best quality service in every aspect without compromising even the tiniest part of the business. The accuracy and efficiency of the system will prevent loopholes and discrepancies in the management.
The proposed system consists of the following modules:
Only the Administrator has access to the whole system. The Administrator will have own username and password. If the employee will log in and enter incorrect username or password, their will be given three chances to re-enter the correct username and password. If the user forgot his password the system will ask them a secret question to retrieve the forgotten password. The employee has a limited access to the system. The user can only see the entire attendance but it will be restricted in editing it.
To be able to utilize the automated system, an employee must register and fill-up the required data first. To...
