Calderón Sport is a leading company in the Spanish fashion and sports-related
industry. It has over 24 years experience both as a manufacturer and a
distributor. Currently, Calderón Sport owns 24 stores and has nine franchises
located across Spain, with more than 300 employees. All of its stores stock a
vast range of sports accessories and top sports clothing brands.
Calderón Sport is owned by the Calderón Group, which also has business
operations in the travel and driving tuition sectors. A big company with a
Calderon Sport stores are very well known and particularly popular with
teenagers who are always looking for the latest fashion trends in sports
clothing and accessories. Retail stores face security issues on a daily basis,
some of which include burglary, shop lifting and vandalism. The company required
a reliable security solution to protect customers, employees, merchandise and
Rafael Hernández, General Manager at Tecnologías Aplicadas de la Seguridad (TAS)
conducted an in-depth review of the customer’s needs. Based on these
requirements, TAS proposed the Honeywell Galaxy Classic intruder alarm system,
ideal for small to medium sized retail outlets. “The effectiveness of a security
system is based on knowing how to choose the right system to suit the
installation requirements and specifications,” comments Hernández.
Using the Honeywell Galaxy Classic panel together with Honeywell motion
sensors, TAS provided a cost-effective security solution, using a highly
reliable product that met with all of Calderon’s requirements.
Galaxy Classic is an ideal solution for small retail chains, as it is a
technologically innovative system that integrates Internet Protocol (IP) based
communications. The use of IP communications means that wiring is simplified,
reducing the time required for installation. A key benefit of the Galaxy system
for Calderon is the ability to centrally receive alarm alerts via SMS messages
in real time.
As the stores continue to expand, the number of employees and intruder system
zones required in each store also continue to grow. As a result, this meant that
security management of the stores was no longer as simple as it was at the
outset when the stores were smaller with only a few members of staff.
Anticipating continuing and future growth, Calderon wanted a system that
would allow a high number of events to be logged and stored for a long time.
Thanks to Galaxy Classic’s multiple events capacity, the system can record
sufficient data on events which take place in the stores and over an extended
time period, future proofing the system for many years to come.
The Galaxy Classic system’s functions are not limited to just security, the
system can also control and record the working times of employees and cleaning
services to the property in the event log. In addition to this, the intruder
detection system can also be integrated with the store’s existing fire and
access control applications.
The advantages: a really healthy business
TAS manages the security for the Calderon Sport Group giving store owners peace
of mind regarding security and allowing them to focus on providing the best
support and service to their customers.
Calderón Sport stands out in the market because of its efforts to become the
first sport franchise in central Spain. With this goal in mind, Blas Calderón,
company Chairman comments: “It is comforting to know that we have the support of
a company like Honeywell and that it will continue well into the future.
Furthermore, the newly installed security system has helped us to minimise
losses and has therefore improved the profitability of our business.”
