GCS is a name synonymous with security to most of the Pakistanis. In a country torn apart by internal terrorism, there was a dire need of technological advancement that would enable the state to curb the deteriorating security situation. In these circumstances, GCS came up with numerous security solutions that not only made the lives of millions of Pakistanis more secured but also helped the government monitor and control the law and order situation of the country in a more efficient manner. GCS is partnered with top international technology firms and bringing their services to Pakistan. GCS is also ISO-9001:2008 Certified.
Initially a city wide surveillance was designed to monitor the civic infrastructure, as Karachi was going through an era of development and there was a need that the development of roads is monitored through a centralized location, but the terrible incident of Ashura blast changed the utility of the Command Centre, as for the first time, not only we witnessed a bomb blast that was caught on camera but the aftermath carnage as well.
GCS proved that the robust system it had installed for surveillance not only survived such a massive blast but was instrumental in identifying the culprits that did all the looting and burning after the terrible incident. After this incident the Command Centre started to serve the law enforcement agencies of Pakistan in observing the city continuously 24/7/365.
Vertical integration is one term GCS is much familiar with. In 2001, the Management of GCS, which had been involved in different industries since 1989, having experience in retail, operations and customer service, started out with a full service call centre that stood out from the rest of the service providers due to its outstanding output and efficient service. In 2006, GCS operations extended to the metropolitan city of Karachi, when the call centre services were brought in.
The years of 2007 and 2008 brought along a significant change in the way GCS had operated so far. In 2007 tenders were released for providing the city of Karachi with the infrastructure to set up a watchful command & control centre. GCS won the tender on merit and successfully helped the government launch Pakistan’s first and only command & control centre in the city of Karachi in the year 2008.
The spirit of vertical integration and a constant thirst for continuing development and expansion urged GCS to step into the world of software development. Non-dependence on 3rd party support, GCS utilizes its in-house resources to develop applications at par with international standards.
