Convergint Technologies Becomes Visual Command Center Value Added Reseller Partner
IDV Solutions, developer of the market-leading Visual Command Center enterprise risk visualization software, and global security systems integrator Convergint Technologies today announced a strategic partnership to develop business opportunities for enterprise clients.
Visual Command Center empowers organizations to protect their people, facilities, and operations against real or potential threats. It monitors real-time risk events such as acts of terrorism, weather, and hazardous materials releases, visualizing them with data from other sources, such as Web feeds or internal and external systems including physical security devices. When a risk is detected near an asset or employee location, Visual Command Center automatically generates an alert. Operators use powerful visualization, filtering, and data query tools to rapidly assess the threat, and act to mitigate risk.
Convergint Technologies specializes in integrating building systems including electronic security, fire alarm and life safety, and building automation solutions—a range of expertise that positions the company to leverage Visual Command Center’s powerful visualization technology. The company reported over $278 million in revenue in 2013 and has been recognized as the largest and fastest growing independent Security Integrator globally.
“Convergint Technologies is an ideal partner for IDV Solutions and Visual Command Center,” said, Mark Morrison, CEO, IDV Solutions. “With their track record of successful projects and emphasis on customer service, they are poised to develop new business opportunities. Their expertise in integrating a wide variety of systems means they’ll be able to deploy Visual Command Center solutions that meet the high standards of their growing customer base.”
