PSA, a consortium of professional systems integrators, announced the addition of the STEPS program to its network to assist in bringing people back to work during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  STEPS, powered by bSMART Entry Assessment, produces a straightforward plan that can be operationally effective in two to 30 days.

“COVID-19 halted business as we know it earlier this year and many integrators are struggling to get their teams back to work as well as support their end users in securing their facilities,” said Tim Brooks, PSA’s vice president of sales and vendor management. “The STEPS program takes the guesswork out of these challenges by providing a customized and detailed roadmap on how to safely get back to work.”

The bSMART Entry Assessment program is designed to provide businesses confidence that they are meeting the needs of staff and customers while simultaneously mitigating business liability.  It also supplies businesses and facilities managers with a tactical plan of action to implement the STEPS program at their facilities. This is contracted directly through the security systems integrator.

“We live in a world of risk and how we respond to risk as a society will determine the lives we live in the future,” said Benjamin Butchko, president of Butchko, Inc. “Entry assessments are a tool to help businesses manage COVID-19 risk while keeping staff safe in the process.  The program goal is to find practical ways to meet the challenge head-on.”

The STEPS program has an extensive assessment covering everything from value proposition and areas of application, integrator training, equipment acquisition, information gathering, visualization image capture and more. Ultimately a report is delivered with recommendations, references, budget, etc.
