Bold Technologies Ltd., Gurnee, Ill., announced a strategic partnership with Make Sense Software, Cherry Hill, N.J.

The purpose of the partnership is to offer management and billing tools to the segment of the alarm market that does not need an accounting-intensive product but rather, an easy-to-use, cost-effective program that provides recurring billing, receipts, and ongoing customer tracking and service. Alarm Dealer Pro, from Make Sense Software, features ties to QuickBooks (Pro and Premier), so alarm dealers can leverage the simple back-end accounting features in QuickBooks that many are already using.

As part of the partnership, Make Sense Software, in conjunction with Bold, will develop “branded” private label versions of Alarm Dealer Pro. In addition, Bold and Make Sense Software have launched product initiatives to integrate Alarm Dealer Pro with Bold’s Manitou to increase data efficiency and accuracy.
