Northeast Protection Partners, Inc. (NEPPS) has been named U.S. Channel Partner of the Year. The announcement highlights NEPPS’ relationship with Status Solutions and its sales leadership in 2014, plus it reinforces the value and contribution of Status Solutions’ expanding channel partner program.
NEPPS is a Pennsylvania-based professional installation and services company that 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.
NEPPS offers internationally recognized and approved electronic access, asset tracking, surveillance, anti-abduction and anti-wander systems, and the company integrates Status Solutions’ Situational Awareness and Response Assistant (SARA), an automated alerting engine.
“Our partnership with Status Solutions enables us to add a great deal of value to our clients with situational awareness and response management,” explains Brian McGinley, president of NEPPS. “Using SARA to integrate alarm and communication systems for centralized monitoring, alerting and reporting gives customers the opportunity to respond to unfolding safety and security threats more quickly. That’s an additional layer of protection we’re pleased to provide.”
Status Solutions continues to transition its business model to focus on the channel for sales, site services and local customer support throughout the United States. The company already has an established channel in Canada. “The stronger our channel program, the more organizations we can help get strategic about risk management by using situational awareness to protect people, property and business operations,” says Mike MacLeod, Status Solutions’ president. “Then we also have more time and resources to concentrate on technology enhancements and broadening our portfolio with complementary solutions like CATIE, which stands for Communication and Access To Information Everywhere, a communication and self-service solution for hospitality environments, from senior living communities to hotels and resorts.”
“The health-care industry is becoming much more competitive with both hospitals and senior living providers having to up their games in terms of services and amenities,” McGinley says. “Adopting situational awareness and response management through SARA and in-room self-service through CATIE would help these clients better manage their data and content to ensure better care and service. We appreciate that Status Solutions is really trying to make a difference and are glad to be on their team.”
As part of the U.S. Channel Partner of the Year recognition, a NEPPS executive will receive an all-expense paid trip to a luxury resort, part of the Status Solutions President’s Club for top-performing channel partners. The other winners/President’s Club inductees will be notified and provided with trip details as soon as they are finalized.
