The new GCS symbol is a pomegranate, which has a hard shell and contains a host of tiny seeds packed randomly, but perfectly, within a set space. This concept is used to define GCS's ability to bring many facets of a project together, and integrate them seamlessly.
This is a logo with a host of minute details that are not immediately obvious, but reveal hidden depths when viewed closely. Along with a strong, stable font, and the unobtrusive crown on the fruit, this new logo suggests that GCS is a leader in the industry. The symbols used to create the logo have been chosen to represent the diversified services GCS offers.

This is the result of the efforts of everyone who worked on this remarkable project, the engineering and technical staff, and our leadership team. Everyone at GCS is committed to quality in everything we do."
In June 2008, GCS Pvt. Ltd was pioneer of city wide surveillance in Pakistan, and now has successfully delivered state of the art Pakistan's largest Command and Control Centre. This project was inaugurated by the Honorable Governor of Sindh, Dr. Ishrat ul Ebad Khan on March 13th, 2014 at the Governor House. Provincial Ministers, Advisors, Members of Sindh Assembly, Senators, industrialists, traders, Consul Generals of different countries and other dignitaries attended this program and appreciated the Governor's endeavor whole heartedly.
Speaking on this occasion, the Governor of Sindh said, "The command and control system will help eradicating crimes in industrial zones and business hub of Karachi and will work under monitoring of police and rangers." He applauded the use of state of the art technology in this project and how it can benefit the citizens of Karachi. The Honorable Governor appreciated the role of GCS Private Ltd in getting this project done, and said, "The City wide deployment of surveillance system is carried out in such a timely manner despite the law & order situation of Karachi and I appreciate the competency of the professionals working for continual successful operations of the system without the downtime of a single second since June 2008."
Chief CPLC Ahmed Chinoy also shared his views, saying; "This centralized facility is established to serve the people of Karachi, ensuring quality provision of law and order as well as timely yet quick health and emergency services. The successful and reliable system functioning proves the proficient quality-oriented infrastructure".
Administrator Karachi Metropolitan Corporation, Rauf Akhtar Farooqui said while addressing to the audience; "KMC had initiated the installation of electronic surveillance system by establishing a Command & Control Center that although works under the supervision of Sindh Police and Mehran Rangers but is maintained and financed by KMC. City wide efficient CCTV surveillance plays an important role in crime prevention as well as supporting and serving law enforcement agencies to fight against terrorism and other unlawful activities like street crimes, theft and mugging, etc. Central security surveillance and management system makes sure in bringing prosperity and helps develop peace in the society. "
Commissioner Karachi Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui and Senior Minister Education Nisar Ahmed Khuhro also addressed the business community appreciating Governor's step towards welfare of the citizens.
On this occasion the Managing Director GCS (Pvt) Ltd, Mr. Arif Jaffer Ali Rajan said that, "GCS takes pride as this project is built on cutting edge technology; it offers high quality solutions to fulfill security & surveillance needs efficiently and effectively. The modern Command and Control Centre is one of its kind in Pakistan; the state of the art security surveillance solution in the metropolitan city, Karachi."

Round the clock available network surveillance and on ground technical staff makes sure the operations are in progress 24/7/365. "
The concept of developing City Wide Surveillance Command and Control Centre in Pakistan is totally exclusive to GCS Pvt. Ltd. We believe that this project's growth is unlimited and a pillar in any city's environment given the current condition of the world. Having scaled up security surveillance infrastructure, Karachi will have an improved security posture. Therefore, not only its domain of coverage would be expanded but also malicious activities would be minimized abruptly.
GCS recently entered into a strategic cooperation with the German consultancy group S&P to open new business opportunities in different parts of the world.
HTECH is delighted to announce the successful deployment and inaugural operation of Rescue Management 1299 Contact Center. More diverse and complex risks are arising in everyday life. In addition, we need to increase comfort for the well-being of our citizens. There was no central command center in a mega city like Karachi to deal with crises; the concept of 1299 is the vision of Governor of Sindh to give Karachi a centralized Center where all emergencies are efficiently dealt with.
Rescue 1299 Contact Center is designed for operational use by professional organizations employing mobile resources, such as police, fire departments, ambulance and rescue services. The highly developed control system enables fast and effective planning and decision making for daily routine and time-critical processes as well as for crisis and emergency situations.
Governor Sindh Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ibad Khan has inaugurated the fastest rescue service of Karachi namely 'Rescue 1299' on Friday 11th October 2013. While talking to media after the inaugural, Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ibad said, "the motive behind initiating the Rescue 1299 service is to minimize the loss caused because of accidents in the city, the rescue center will help concerned authorities to provide prompt response in emergency situations through single centralized source which will reduce the disruptions of any prevailing hazardous event, to have a prosperous Karachi city and save the valuable lives and properties of citizens." The governor told the media that rescue 1299 would work as a "centralized coordination service" for rescue operations in the city in emergencies, as various organizations related to relief and rescue have been working in the metropolis without proper coordination among them. The center having the latest communication facilities would work round-the-clock to ensure quick response in case of any emergency. It would fulfill the requirement of coordination and provide a chain of command for better rescue services, he added.
Based on robust client/server architecture, the system's user interface provides an intuitive, hierarchical structure for addresses, resources and actions required to be taken instantly. Contact Center's structured system design strongly supports customer-specific variations of workflows during both the setup process and live operations – without any downtime. The system is based on an Oracle database, which ensures the highest level of both system availability and reliability. This center will be connected with institutions like EDHI, CHIPPA and KKF in order to get faster services for the citizens; it will also be connected with CPLC, CANTTS and Southern Air Command. This integration supports operators and first responders to optimize their work processes.
The prime focus of Rescue 1299 is to serve and support the public safety needs of the citizens in the most efficient and responsive manner. The coordination of various stakeholders effectively provides timely remedial measures and ensures proper relief for the affected. When dealing with emergency situations, security organizations such as the fire department, police and other intervention forces require timely, efficient and correct coordination. Emergency call taking is supported through predefined questions and answers to receive the essential information from a distressed caller within shortest time. Under the new service, the help unit will reach the site of emergency or disaster between three and five minutes after a distress call is received by the rescue center.
The efficient Contact Center fully conforms to the specific response policies, defining appropriate actions and countermeasures for managing daily events, time-critical processes, crisis and emergency situations..
