Technological advancements and innovations are indeed changing the way we go on about our businesses. While almost all industry verticals have felt the impacts of today’s ground-changing technologies, there are still a few among them grappling to get headway against the traditional ways of doing things. Real estate is one industry that finds a significant part of its business stifled with conventional technologies and tools. The dependence on such archaic methods brings in a multitude of operational resiliency and sustainability challenges, primarily from emergency preparedness, fire life safety, and crisis management perspective. This has hammered home the immediate need for organizations to delve deeper into modernizing their technological arsenal to uphold their brands and ensure public safety.

Enter Building Safety Solutions, Inc. (BSS). The California-based leading provider of technologically advanced systems for emergency preparedness, disaster planning, business continuity, and incident response specializes in helping clients “protect the life of their business” with its robust cloud- and mobile-based applications. “Since our inception in 2001, we’ve always been striving to push the boundaries of innovation in the real estate space,” says Hector M. Gomez, the President and CEO of BSS. Team BSS’ ardent urge to make a world of difference in the real estate industry gave birth to two state-of-the-art solutions—BSS Guardian and BSS Archangel.

BSS Guardian is a secured, cloud-based, custom emergency preparedness and incident response system designed to provide lifesaving information 24/7 to building occupants.

By creating modules for fire, active shooter, COVID-19, medical, terrorist, and other incidents and making emergency preparedness strategies, evacuation routes, floor plans, readily available, it helps save lives during emergencies.
“Our solution provides training to building occupants, which is then conveniently and effectively recorded, summarized, and reported to help our clients mitigate liability and comply with regulations—without attending any sort of live training sessions. It is the ideal solution for employees who are working from their offices, home, or hoteling” adds Gomez. BSS Guardian also features specialty tools that provide information about the presence and location of people with physical impairments, helping save them during emergencies. With the notification system incorporated within, it provides real-time notification to occupants on the occurrence of an incident via text, email, or call, which helps keep them safe. Having such a powerful line of capabilities, the solution serves as a natural fit for today’s emergency preparedness needs as most offices and corporate companies are preparing themselves for the return of their employees after the pandemic.

“Our second product, BSS Archangel is considered the protector of buildings and serves as a critical component in organizations’ risk management strategy and business resiliency planning,” says Gomez. It is designed to provide facilities personnel with a digital repository of critical building systems, helping them rapidly and accurately respond to equipment malfunctions, human errors, and natural and man-made disasters. BSS Archangel does this by consolidating and streamlining fragmented information on HVAC, plumbing, electrical, water, and other systems and making it readily available for decision-makers in a visually impactful manner.
  • BSS Guardian is a secured, cloud-based, custom emergency preparedness and incident response system designed to provide lifesaving information 24/7 to building occupants.


This secure, scalable, custom-made asset-protection system equips building staff with knowledge to respond to emergencies efficiently. Not only does it reduce training expenses with customized online training but also measures and records knowledge with complete management and reporting system. This way, BSS Archangel helps mitigate damages to physical property and avoid costly business interruptions, making it the go-to solution for offices, campuses, corporate campuses, public entities, and high rises or skyscrapers like the Burj Khalifa.

What gives BSS a competitive edge is its products’ quality and world-class customer service that it always strives to provide. The company believes in continuous innovation and product development by leveraging all newer technologies, helping it find a place on the business growth bandwagon. Moving ahead, BSS is planning to broaden its customer base further by extending its footprints into other markets, including data centers, distribution centers, warehouses, industrial parks, pharmaceuticals, and biomedical spaces globally. “At BSS, we always strive to use technologies judiciously and add value to our clients’ operations rather than building cost-prohibitive solutions,” concludes Gomez.
