Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT A+ Technology & Security Solutions!
Three questions with Bob Genova, Account Executive at A+ Technology & Security Solutions.
Why did you start your business?
Since 1988, A+ Technology & Security Solutions has been providing integrated solutions to schools, law enforcement, local, state, and federal governmental agencies, healthcare, and commercial organizations. We are dedicated to the vision of creating a smarter and safer world. In July 2016, A+ expanded and opened our New England Headquarters at 1027 Fairfield Avenue in Bridgeport, CT where we provide our industry-leading security services to clients in the region, as well as provide sales and support of a wide breadth of the latest network-based technologies.
What is your best-selling product/service?
As integrators, we offer proven products with open standards. We excel in “technology convergence”, leveraging the power of the network to bring together independent systems, specializing in the convergence of physical security and IT infrastructure solutions. Our products and services range from surveillance cameras and video management systems to touchless access control and visitor management solutions. We offer IoT sensors that measure air quality, detect vape and chemicals, and can identify aggression and gunshots with the ability to provide alerts and calls for help in privacy areas. Beyond the physical security products, Virtual Guarding along with threat assessment and security training are also services that are highly in-demand.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
Yes, A+ is continually growing and evolving. Most recently as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Being considered an essential business, A+ had to pivot and innovate to create a safe and healthy work environment for our employees and meet new demand in security and safety needs. Creating and promoting a healthy facility environment became a focus for our own organization as well as those we serve. As a result of the pandemic we expanded and implemented our own new policies and procedures as well as our offerings, and introduced new products such as thermal temperature scanning solutions, enhanced environmental sensors, and virtual guarding services to our clients.
