Outsourcing became part of the business lexicon during the 1980s and refers to the delegation of various operations from in-house to a service provider specializing in the management of that operation. The decision to outsource is often made in the interest of lowering costs, or to make more efficient use of labor, capital, technology and resources.
Consultants provide advice in a particular area of expertise, for multiple and changing clients. Thus, clients have access to deeper levels of expertise than would be feasible for them to retain in-house, plus the outside consultant is available on a per project basis, or an on-going basis.
Associations exist to keep their members in contact with one another as well as to provide a strong, unified group with POWER!
Often, association officers are volunteers whose “real” jobs require enormous energy and time commitments.
Association management services may include: permanent offices, membership services, meeting management, computer support, web site management, record-keeping, newsletter and member-to-member communications, public relations, and accounting services.

All organizations face some form of security risk. This risk can vary from insignificant to very high. Assessing and understanding the level of that risk, and the potential threat to the organization’s operations, is the basis for establishing an effective security policy. Once a security policy has been established, effective measures can be evaluated and implemented to reduce the security risks.
The choices of security systems and equipment available today are vast. Making the right choice of equipment and implementing an effective security strategy is becoming increasingly difficult. ITZ Solutions provide independent advice that ensures that systems and procedures operate in harmony with your operational activities.
Through our long affiliation with the ESA (formerly NBFAA) NationalTraining School we have access to trainers on a multitude of electronic life safety and security technology and business topics.
