BSIA launches survey into factors that influence security procurement and investment


Smart Card-based Access Control systems

As part of a new initiative to better understand the and requirements of end users, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has just launched a survey that aims to gather detailed information on the factors which influence security procurement and investment.

The online poll will include questions covering a wide range of topics, such as the impact of economic recovery on security spending. It is hoped that the survey will ultimately identify emerging trends in buying behaviour, and how these relate to perceived security threats facing a number of business sectors, including retail, transport, healthcare and education.

The survey will be open for responses until Friday 12th June and the results will help to underpin a campaign to ensure that security buyers are making informed procurement decisions on quality, future proof solutions.

James Kelly, Chief Executive of the BSIA, comments: “This survey will help the security industry to identify the factors that influence the procurement of security products and services. By gaining an understanding of our industry’s clients and their security needs, we can ensure a closer relationship between buyers and suppliers throughout the procurement, implementation and maintenance of security products and services.

“We know that end users place a varying degree of importance on security and take differing approaches to procurement. We want to make sure that those responsible for the procurement of security solutions are receiving the goods and services they need, which are fit for purpose now and for the future.”
