Status Solutions, the pioneering provider of enterprise situational awareness technologies, today announced that Northeast Protection Partners, Inc. (NEPPS) is the U.S. Valued Business Partner (VBP) of the Year for 2015, with Unity Connected Solutions named as the 2015 VBP of the Year for Canada.
This announcement highlights these companies’ sales leadership for the 2015 calendar year and the growing adoption of Status’ Solutions Situational Awareness and Response Assistant (SARA) to improve life safety, security, environmental monitoring and mass notification throughout North America.
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, including more than 400 hospitals and senior living communities throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The company offers access control, asset tracking, surveillance, anti-abduction and anti-wander systems, all of which integrate with SARA for integrated alarm management and automated alerting/mass notification.
“Innovation continues to be a priority for NEPPS, and our partnership with Status Solutions helps us provide clients with additional protection through automated alerting and response management,” explains Brian McGinley, president of NEPPS. “Enabling customers to control all of their alarm and communication systems from a central point improves safety, security and communication across their organizations, which translates into greater efficiency and care. We’re honored to receive this recognition for the second year in a row and will continue to work with Status in demonstrating the value of situational awareness for emergency preparedness and response.”
Unity Connected Solutions, based in Ontario, has been designing and deploying communication solutions for numerous businesses across Canada since 2005, including senior living, health care, retail and manufacturing. In addition to offering unified communications, collaboration and data networking, Unity Connected Solutions extends those 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.”
“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.”
Northeast Protection Partners, Inc. in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, provides hospitals and senior living communities with security solutions that protect infants, young children and older adults. With more than 60 years of experience in the fields of protection and asset security, NEPPS provides exceptional service and has earned a reputation that is unparalleled in the health-care industry.
