Building Security Services Market
Category engagement models for building management systems, fire and life safety systems and security systems
our client is currently engaged with siemens for procurement of bms/fire safety/security systems categories. The interaction with siemens is fragmented from both the supplier side and the client side.
Each category has a different management group taking care of the category for the client as well as siemens. Key client stakeholders own the category and work in silos. Client’s category heads don’t interact with each other, even though all products and services are purchased from the same supplier. Siemens caters to all client requests from the nearest office to the client’s plant locations.
The engagement between the client and siemens is very inconsistent. For this, we would like to understand how the current situation can be better streamlined when a buyer deals with a single supplier for multiple categories and across multiple locations.
We require answers to below specific questions:
1. We want to understand best practices when engaging with the single major supplier providing products/services for building management systems (bms), fire and life safety system (fls) and security system (ss) providers.
2. How should the client engage with a supplier such as siemens, should it be on a regional or global or location level?
3. Cases studies on how companies engage with siemens or similar suppliers. How should they handle the sourcing of multiple categories such as bms, fls, and ss across multiple locations from a single vendor?
The case studies should explore the below points:
a. How should a company acting as a single supplier for multiple categories, serving across locations structure their interaction with the buyer?
B. How to manage internal and external stakeholders (across region and category)
c. Explore the information on supplier engagement type for procurement of above-mentioned categories
4. Pricing models adopted when a single supplier is providing all three services (bms, fls, and ss).
5. Can the maintenance (operation expenditure) of the devices be outsourced to the third party if the original equipment is installed by the supplier such as siemens for bms/ss/fls categories?
Supplier relationship management - siemens:
1. Market share of siemens in us/global bms, fls and ss market.
2. Typical engagement models adopted by siemens when interacting with its key clients.
3. Pricing models used by siemens.
4. Risks and problems associated with working siemens.+35 Other Responses
