Status Solutions announces leading reseller: Unity Connected Solutions
In recognition of their sales leadership in 2015, Status Solutions has announced that Northeast Protection Partners, Inc. (NEPPS) is its U.S. Valued Business Partner of the Year for 2015, with Unity Connected Solutions named as the 2015 VBP of the Year for Canada.
Status Solutions’ Situational Awareness and Response Assistant (SARA) product contributes to life safety, security, environmental monitoring and mass notification throughout North America.
Unity Connected Solutions, based in Ontario, has been designing and deploying communication solutions for numerous businesses since 2005, including senior living, health care, retail and manufacturing. In addition to offering unified communications, collaboration and data networking, Unity Connected Solutions extends its capabilities by integrating access control and video surveillance with SARA to enhance safety and security.
“As our name implies, we provide solutions that link communication technologies for customers, and we’ve been able to expand and differentiate those capabilities with SARA from Status Solutions,” says Pat Lance, vice-president of sales and marketing, Unity Connected Solutions. “While many of our health-care clients have implemented SARA to power nurse call, the solution has much broader applications and ROI for mass notification and emergency management, just as its name implies. Situational awareness is an outcome. Any organization needs to understand what’s happening and how to handle an unfolding incident, all made possible by integrating disparate alarm systems and communication end points.”
This is the second consecutive year NEPPS has been named the U.S. channel leader. Based in Pennsylvania, NEPPS provides end-to-end security solutions for health-care customers.
“We rely on a strong channel for sales, site services and local customer support throughout the United States and Canada,” notes Mike MacLeod, Status Solutions’ president. “We appreciate how both NEPPS and Unity have embraced our mission of helping organizations prevent ignorance-based loss. By adding a layer of intelligent monitoring, alerting and reporting over existing systems, any facility, multi-building campus or enterprise can take risk management to the next level. Real-time awareness is the missing piece we and our partners provide to protect people, property and business operations.”
