What challenges does your department face and how does your team overcome those challenges?

Challenges Chrissy faces in the Operations Department include change and growth. “Over the past serval years, BSI Online has been a rapidly growing companyWhile it has been exciting to watch and to be a part of, it has also been met with challenges. One big challenge I faced, along with the world, was the pandemic. Prior to Covid, BSI employees worked together at corporate headquarters. We were together all week. We knew nothing but the Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. office workstyle. Boy, did that change in March 2020 when the normal day-to-day office workstyle turned into working remotely from home,” Chrissy explained. While that was a challenge to implement, Chrissy feels the transition to working remotely has been a huge success! 

What is one piece of advice Chrissy would give to someone new to our ever-growing industry?

A piece of advice I would give to a new person in the industry is to never stop learning. By working in the backflow industry for close to 20 years, I can say that I have learned something new almost daily. As the industry grows, so do the state and local requirements of backflow compliance. It is extremely important to stay up to date with new regulations,” said Chrissy.  

“Of all the online backflow reporting portals, BSI’s website is the most user-friendly. The reminder notifications are helpful, and the customer service is responsive and reliable.”
