Selecting the Right Systems Integrator for Your Campus

On-Demand
making strategic business decisions, hiring the right integrator, campus safety hiring

When a campus determines it needs new security cameras, access control, locks, emergency notification systems, intrusion detection, and/or other solutions, very often administrators will call on a systems integrator for the job. But how can a school, college, or healthcare facility pick the security systems contractor that will install top-notch equipment and provide excellent service… all at a price tag that won’t break the bank?

This is the tough question facing many campus security, public safety, and emergency management professionals today. Choosing the right integrator can ensure a project will be successful, both in the short and long term. Hiring the wrong contractor, however, can spell disaster.

In this webinar, three campus protection professionals will discuss how they determine the technology upgrades they need and how they select the systems integrators they use for these projects.

Attendees will also learn about:

  • The pros and cons of assessments conducted by in-house staff vs. consultants vs. integrators.
  • Vetting consultants and integrators, and the red flags that indicate a prospective contractor might not be appropriate for your project or organization.
  • The benefits and disadvantages of proprietary vs. open source systems.
  • What to expect when projects go out to bid.
  • When an installation or repair should be done by in-house staff rather than a contractor.
  • How new systems will be maintained and by whom.
  • And much more.
