HMI and California Safety Training: Winning Big with Periscope S2G

Rich Harlan, the owner & CEO of HMI and California Safety Training, has a story that's not just about individual success—it's about how strategic tools like Periscope S2G can redefine the landscape of business opportunities. As a retired Battalion Chief and a paramedic with over 35 years of service, Rich's transition to the helm of a company might seem like a change of pace. Yet, his commitment to excellence remains unwavering.

Finding Opportunities with Periscope S2G

Periscope S2G has emerged as a pivotal element in HMI and California Safety Training's story, delivering notifications of more than 100,000 government bids each month. "We have a couple of contracts where Periscope really helped us out," Rich explains. "We got these two five-year contracts, and combined, both of those are $2,000,000 contracts."

This isn't just about the numbers; it's about the potential unlocked by Periscope S2G. Rich's proactive approach paid off handsomely: "I saw those right away when I signed up for Periscope, and I ended up putting proposals together, and we ended up getting both of those contracts."

“You are in the know [about] what's going on in the areas that you want to pick that you can find available. So do it.”

This statement isn't just conjecture; it's backed by the tangible success of securing contracts worth millions. Rich's encouragement to fellow government suppliers is clear: investing in Periscope S2G’s services is not just a wise move - it pays off.

“…this is where I'd like to tell anybody out there that's considering about spending for Periscope [to] spend the money; it will make you the money back again.”
