Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and Situation Management
Know what’s happening and what to do
If your enterprise’s control room is like most, you’ve got a massive amount of information coming into it. Every system and sensor is sending in status updates, notifications and alerts. How do you make sense of it all? More importantly, how are your security operators handling it?
A physical security information management (PSIM) solution is a good answer. Situator is a better one. That’s why it’s been ranked the #1 best PSIM solution year after year.

PSIM – overcoming security information overload
A clear view
Think of physical security information management (PSIM) as a layer that sits on top of all of your other security systems and sensors. Its job is to organize, analyze and manage all of the information they produce. Instead of having tens, maybe even hundreds of systems to manage, PSIM integrates everything into a single, centralized view. It gives you the big picture, along with all the important details, for your security operations.
Qognify’s physical security information management software makes sense of all the data coming into your control room. It brings greater awareness of what is happening and it does so sooner. That means you can respond faster and more effectively. You’ll know who to send where, how many of them, and make sure they have the right equipment. It helps you to more efficiently use your resources with:
- Effective collaboration and communication
- Better utilization of existing systems

Leave the guesswork behind with physical security information management
PSIM also brings consistency to how your security operations handle incidents. Qognify’s PSIM system gives your operators guidance on how to handle events and automates some of the tasks involved. And when all is said and done, you have the records, reports and analysis necessary to keep improving.
Situation Management: Going beyond security with PSIM+
Situator is our PSIM software, but is more accurately referred to as a Situation Management solution. Situation Management continues where PSIM leaves off. We’ve taken the core functionality of PSIM and multiplied it.
While physical security information management (PSIM) makes you aware of what’s going on, Situation Management extends the value of that knowledge outside of the security realm. With Situator’s capabilities, you can integrate security systems to manage a range of other operational functions.
The raw data available from your PSIM software – video feeds, GIS maps, analytics, system and sensor data, and so much more –can be extremely valuable to departments across your entire enterprise. It can be leveraged to improve numerous operational areas with better response, faster service and efficiency to reduce costs.
Qognify’s Situator system ensures intelligent processes and provides an analytical engine that can transform business operations. It bridges painful operational gaps caused by information overload, as it becomes a central pillar in managing your day-to-day security activities.
