If you are choosing between GSI and other companies please consider the following:
- Ask if they have the in-house expertise to properly install, setup, program and support what they sell.
- Ask if they have appropriate state and/or local licenses, if required.
- Ask if they are properly and adequately insured and what their insurance limits are. Improperly insured companies put you at risk.
- Ask for the location of their primary place of business.
- Ask if they conduct any pre-employment screening.
- Contact your local police department’s Crime Prevention Department, state licensing agencies, Consumer Protection Agencies, and the Better Business Bureau.
- Ask for references.
