IRVING, Texas—A recent survey focusing on security companies’ installation and service practices generated not just data but helped to identify industry trends that can be studied and discussed further, according to Trevor Block, vice chairman of the Electronic Security Association’s new Installation & Service Professionals (ISP) group.
“[We’ll] look at percentages [of responses in the survey] that may be emerging trends, and through the group try to facilitate training programs, webinars, white papers” to address those issues, such as offering home automation, Block said.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Two new groups recently formed by the Electronic Security Association —one for sales and marketing professionals and another for installation and service professionals—will hold their inaugural meetings next week at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX), to be held here June 6-10.
The groups, which will meet on June 8, have attracted more than 250 members so far, according to organizers. The strong response shows that the industry has a need for both the ISP (installation service professionals) group and the SMP (sales and marketing professionals) group, according to the chairmen of the groups.
