K2 is the “easy” button for deployments Installation, movement, and decommission of security screening equipment. The advantage to our customers is K2 will preempt or mitigate issues throughout the entire life-cycle of the effort.
A typical ASL installation involves 4 major components; stakeholder(s), construction company(s), an ASL OEM and a system integrator (SI). The stakeholders drive the location and purchasing of the ASL systems. The construction company provides all infrastructure and temporary enclosures. The ASL OEMs provides the physical ASL equipment and installation of its product. The SI handles all existing checkpoint equipment, understands and coordinates the project components, provides experienced solutions for onsite real-time impacts that face an ASL installation.
As an SI, K2s management philosophy is to be agile, take responsibility and to work in the best interest of the project. The ASL deployments are challenging and require calm, responsible, reactive experienced leaders to maximize schedule and minimize overruns.
